Following the success of previous film-scoring workshops, the Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO) and the RTE Concert Orchestra, in association with Filmbase, FÁS Screen Training Ireland and The Contemporary Music Centre will, once again, bring together the very best emerging Irish film makers and music composers to work on a collaborative project.

The focus of their latest movie project will be a one-day recording session in RTÉ studios in early 2009. This will involve the RTE Concert Orchestra performing and recording original scores for short film submissions received from both student and professional Irish filmmakers. IMRO are now seeking applications from interested composers who would like to participate in this project. Because of the limited number of places available they have set down a number of qualifying criteria for those wishing to take part.
1 Previous experience of scoring to picture (short film/advertisements etc) is desirable.
2 Proficient music notation ability, preferably training to 3rd level standard.
3 The ability to score for full orchestra is essential.
If you meet the above criteria and would like to participate in this programme please send us an up-to-date CV and samples of your work, outlining your film and TV scoring experience to date. A total of four composers will be selected for inclusion in the project.
Please send your submission to: Keith Johnson, Director of Marketing & Membership, Irish Music Rights Organisation, Copyright House, Pembroke Row, Lower Baggot Street, Dublin 2.
Closing date for receipt of entries is 31st of October.
