NATSIMO Screen Composer Intensive: Expressions of Interest
November 30 @ 11:59 pm
The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Music Office (NATSIMO) has opened expressions of interest for its Screen Composer Intensive.
The program was developed in consultation with screen industry professionals with the goal to create, forge and develop self-determined pathways to employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander screen composers through the development of a three-month creative immersive experience. Applications are open to composers from all across Australia, but the program requires the participant to be based in Sydney for the duration of the residency.
As part of the opportunity, the successful recipient will be provided with a studio workspace at Church Street Studios. The NATSIMO and the Australian Guild of Screen Composers will structure a schedule of activities with some consultation with the participant and supervising Screen Composer Mentor.
The intensive is funded by APRA AMCOS with support from the AGSC, Church Street Studios, Jigsaw Music and Trackdown Studios.
Former recipients include Rhyan Clapham (DOBBY), who was mentored by Amanda Brown, and Amanda Davis (Dyagula), who was mentored by Ken Francis. Francis will also be a mentor f0r 2024.Key dates
