    The TCM Young Film Composers Competition

    Whew, just finished my entry today and sent it off... best of luck to myself! And best of luck to anyone else entering.

    I put my past attempts on YouTube at:

    Anyone else ever do any of these? Fun to do.

    Hope you do well, Sean!

    How come it's called the Young Film Composer's Competition?
    I'm not old enough to enter.

    Yup.

    I just turned mine in late last week. This is my last chance to enter - since next year I'll officially (according to TCM's definition) be OLD. (36)

    These ARE a lot of fun and, I think, way more difficult than scoring "talkies." Wall-to-wall music is hard to do, and yet also has to be effective in underpinning the scene with music that enhances, and not distracts from, the stuff happening on the screen. Hard.


    loved your other entries, Sean!

    Definitely! It also just sounds plain weird with no sound effects at all! With silent films like this, you are dictating everything the viewer hears. Quite a challenge!

    Best of luck to you! Hope you'll share your entry after March ends, I'd love to hear it!

    Hmmm... you could claim your just young for your age... or say that you've been moving so fast that time has been going slower for you... ya know, relativity...

    Ok, maybe not.

    I could say I'm not young, just relatively old.

    Sean,

    Very nice job on your past enteries. I've wanted to do this every year since it was instated, but something always seems to come up. Someday, I'll actually do it.

    It would be cool to win and go meet and talk with Hans Zimmer though. Good luck to both you and Jerry. I'd love to see and hear your other enteries.

    Best of luck, my friends.

    Jonny
