  1. I saw this movie when it first came out, I found it to be rather generic with the best part of the movie being the special effects. The main ballad is a lovely one. The other songs were so-so. I don't remember much of the score in the movie.
  2. Hi everyone, I am in the process of forming the next composers challenge. But first, I wanted feedback from the previous challenges (Dear Esther, Mass Effect 2, The Artist). Some of the things that I would like to know: -What were the things that worked for you? -What things didn't work for you? -How do you feel about the variety of the clips? -How do you feel about the length of the clips? -How do you feel about the feedback being given? If there's anything else that you want to add, please do. Kevin
  3. Hello everyone, First of all, I want to thank everyone would participated in this composers challenge. We actually had more entries than with Dear Esther and Mass Effect 2 which is a very gratifying feeling. I tell you that two of the professional composers (James Peterson and William Stromberg) were unable to review the entries due to professional commitments. However, Alain Mayrand and Vladmir Nikolov. Before I announce the top three, I want to explain the voting process. People voted each entry out of 10 and then I averaged out the votes per entry to determine
  4. Just to remind people that they have until the end of Sunday to send their votes and comments you me.
  5. Hello everyone, In the end, it turned out that we have 12 wonderful entries (which is more than the last two composers challenge). Now that the contest is closed, the voting can begin. Let me be clear, everyone (not just composers) can vote and giving feedback on the entries is highly encouraged. The comments allow each of the composers to learn from this experience. For voting, you rate each entry out of 10 (one being the worst and ten being the best). At the end, the votes will be added up and the top three will be announced. Composers who entered thi
  6. 's two weeks left until the deadline, plenty of time to sign and write! There's two weeks left until the deadline, plenty of time to sign and write! Remember if you enter, you will receive feedback from professional composers: 1) William Stromberg - Composer best known for Trinty & Beyond and Starship Troopers 2 and Master of Re-recordings. 2) Alain Mayrand - Composer best known for The Legend of Silk Boy and Orchestrator/Conductor of Elysium. 3) James Peterson - Composer best known for The Red Canvas (with its 12 minute Ballet for Brawlers cue).
  7. Another update: Composer James Peterson has agreed to be a part of the professional review team. James is best known for his work on the The Red Canvas (for which the "Ballet for Brawlers cue is magnificent).
  8. Don't be afraid to enter, you're guaranteed to have constructive feedback about your entry. More than a month left to before the deadline, plenty of time to sign up!
  9. There's still plenty of time to sign up for the challenge! I know of at least half a dozen composers who will be entering.
  10. You could ask the same thing about the movie, they can't use Bishop's Countdown twice within 10 minutes of each other? I actually think that Horner's original "Resolution and Hyperspace" would have been absolutely fine in film.
  11. Hello everyone, With the last Composers Challenge using an action clip from the award winning game 'Mass Effect 2', I thought that the next Composers Challenge should take us into another realm. The Artist is an Oscar winning silent film which follows the life of an actor in the silent film era. Ludovic Bource wrote an Oscar winning score for the movie. The 3 minute scene is from the dramatic climax of the movie where the actor is down in the dumps because, faced with the ultimate choice in life and his love interest is desperately trying to find him:
  12. I would love to see Aliens in London but alas in the wrong part of the world.
  13. Hello everyone, First of all, I want to thank everyone would participated in this composers challenge. We actually had more entries than with Dear Esther (even though the Mass Effect 2 was six minutes long!). That is very gratifying to see. Before I announce the top three, I want to explain the voting process. People voted each entry out of 10 and then I averaged out the votes per entry to determine the winner. I have also complied all of the reviews and comments that people shared out the each entry so each composer will receive those comments from me shortly after thi
  14. In private but if you want to do it publicly, you may do so. After the competition is over.
  15. Please note that Entry 10 and Entry 11 were added belatedly because they were sent in before the deadline. It was my error that they were not included the first time.
  16. Hello everyone, In the end, it turned out that we have 9 wonderful entries (almost the same as last time but this clip was longer). Now that the contest is closed, the voting can begin. Let me be clear, everyone (not just composers) can vote and giving feedback on the entries is highly encouraged. The comments allow each of the composers to learn from this experience. For voting, you rate each entry out of 10 (one being the worst and ten being the best). At the end, the votes will be added up and the top
  17. It's the final day of the composers challenge. Be sure to turn in your entries by the end of today!
