One of the most memorable aspects of a successful film is the music soundtrack. This weekend course is for students with a background in filmmaking or music composing who are looking to develop their understanding of developing music for film. You study what it is that makes good film music, how it is produced across the industry, the different types of music and what they are used for in film. You’ll also cover how to obtain the right music for a project and how to work with a music composer to get the best results.
Over the two days you cover:
Laura Rossi has written extensively for film and television, including scores for Paul Andrew Williams’s critically acclaimed features ‘London to Brighton’ and ‘The Cottage’ and the British Film Institute’s award-winning ‘Silent Shakespeare’. Laura recently completed scoring the 1916 film ‘The Battle of the Somme’, which remains one of the most successful British films ever made. The music was recorded by the Philharmonia Orchestra and has recently been released on CD and DVD to worldwide critical acclaim. Laura most recently completed scoring the feature film ‘The Firm’ for Vertigo Films directed by Nick Love.
Laura’s music has been recorded and performed by the Philharmonia Orchestra, the London Musici Orchestra, the BBC Concert Orchestra and the Fourth Dimension String Quartet.

All international students from outside the EEA (non-EU countries) must obtain a Short-Term Study Visa to enter the UK. The UK government has introduced a Points Based System for Immigration that has several ‘Tiers’ (the Student Tier, Tier 4, came into force on 31 March 2009).
You can check if you need a visa by visiting the UK BORDER AGENCY website. You can also check with the British Embassy or Consulate in your own country or, if there is not one where you live, in a neighbouring country.
Visa applications can be a lengthy process and therefore it is advisable to apply well in advance of your planned trip.
