LFA Filmmaker's Club: Nainita Desai, Music Composer 'For Sama'

12 January 2021, 11:00-13:00

This event is exclusive to LFA Filmmakers' Club community (current LFA students and alumni).

Ivor Novello-nominated and BAFTA Breakthrough Brit Music Composer and Sound Designer Nainita Desai will be joining us for an exclusive Masterclass!

Nainita has scored countless BAFTA, Oscar, and Emmy acclaimed productions including ‘Bad Boy Billionaires’, ‘The Reason I Jump’, and the Oscar-nominated & BAFTA-winning ‘For Sama’. Nainita also composed the title theme for the prestigious BBC Royal Wedding of Meghan and Harry in 2018.

The PRS placed Nainita at No 2 in their Top 10 Female Writers whose work was most used in Film & TV through 2018. She has also been awarded Best Original Music at the Music+Sound Awards 2019 and Naturvision Film Festival 2019.

Nainita's musical foundations are rooted in world music, which informs her experimental, multi-instrumental, and creatively diverse approach. This, coupled with experience with sound design and technical innovation, fuels Nainita's powerful and immersive scores. Her creative process involves deeply-researched collaborations to find those voices that are not usually heard, and sounds that are truly unique.

In this Masterclass, Nainita will be covering topics including the power of music in storytelling, the process of composing, communicating with a composer, and how music affects us emotionally.
