“As an instrumentalist, writing music for the FilmScore 2015 competition was a completely new experience for me.  I enjoyed it so much though that it has now inspired me to look deeper into composition for film and consider it as a possible career path.

My most recent composition was for a twenty minute short drama “Letters Home”, commemorating the Battle of the Somme during the First World War. The FilmScore competition provided a fantastic background into the essentials of composing for screen. 

What was new and interesting about composition for “Letters Home” was composing as part of a team and writing music to accompany actors and script. I am now currently considering the possibility of studying a masters in composition for film in London” – Sebrina Lambert-Rose, FilmScore 2015 finalist
