A Summer School for aspiring Film Music and Games Composers

The unique opportunity to learn the aesthetic and technical aspects of composing music for film, games, TV and more.

Ulster University with Dumbworld Presents…
is specifically designed for early career musicians and composers looking to develop their music composition and technology skills in writing music for screen (film, games, TV, etc).

The week will consist of workshops, seminars, and tutorials that focus on the professional tools and approaches needed to create an original score. This course will be delivered by some of the most established and high-profile professional names working in film scoring, contemporary music, and music production, including Ivor Novello Award-winning composers David Holmes (Killing Eve [BBC, 2018-2022]) and Brian Irvine (The Woman in the Wall [BBC, 2023]). Seminars will also feature advice and support from an array of experienced professionals about building a career as a film music composer.

The course covers both the aesthetic and creative aspects of writing for screen as well as technical elements, software, and score preparation methodologies. It further offers the chance to connect with a network of Directors, Producers, and Sound Designers. It is a unique opportunity to experience the real-life process of composing an original score for screen.

As well as learning a huge amount of information from experienced professionals, participants will also come away with a fully mixed and mastered copy of their recorded score. Digital scoring will be strongly encouraged and supported while engaging in composing for a live ensemble will be optional.

Each participant will:
- Be mentored by our internationally acclaimed faculty and visiting industry professional
- Compose an original score for a specific segment of film
- Receive copyright permission to use in their portfolio
- Receive a mixed and mastered recording of their composition

The course is a co-production between the contemporary production company Dumbworld and Ulster University. It will take place in the UU Music Department, Foyle Arts Building in Derry/Londonderry.

Due to the limited availability, we are expecting a high level of interest so early application is recommended.
