FILM SCORING SUMMER PROGRAM
The Film Scoring Summer Program is a 3-week summer course experience designed for composers of all skill levels who are interested in composing music for film. Located in the beautiful beach town of Varna, Bulgaria (right on the Black Sea!), this program aims to give students a foundation in the fundamentals of composing music for film; technology (DAW and Notation software), orchestration, the pedagogy of film composition, and the experience of recording your original music with live ensembles of various sizes.
We are thrilled to welcome annually Christopher Young, Hollywood film composer & lecturer in film music at USC.
Golden Globe-nominated composer whose credits include films such as Spider-Man 3, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Hellraiser, Insidious, and more.
