"Wonderful opportunity to score scenes from movies and then get insightful, constructive feedback. The peer review aspect gives me a chance to get a lot of varied perspectives regarding the music I created for a scene, much like the sort of varying points of view you'd get from a audience. Overall, this is a great way to sharpen my skills as a film composer!"
- Preston M., Composer
"I participated in the music editor assignment, where you have to add pre-existing music to a scene and make it work. It really opened my eyes to some of my weaknesses and helped me address them. The commentary was spot-on and helpful. This is a great, low-pressure way to hone your craft and participate in a composing community."
- Dallas C., Film Composer
"I think that the most important way to learn is by doing, and with these assignments you will expand your skills in film scoring in a practical and real world manner.
I enjoyed every single challenge I worked on.
It shows your best strengths and weaknesses through continual comparison with your peers, who also give constructive feedback to improve your work giving you lots of different points of view.
There aren't strict deadlines or mandatory assignments, so even if you will have a particularly busy week, you can still learn from watching, reading the comments on what others did, and submit your version whenever you are ready.
The community is very supportive and talented.
Each assignment is focused on a particular skill, so in the long run you will develop a set of skills that will help you to be prepared when you approach real clients."
- Luigi F, Composer
