Composers Announced for the LA Live Score Film Festival

The Los Angeles Live Score Film Festival is proud to announce their 2018 class of film composers. Participating in this year’s live score-to-screen festival is an impressive and diverse line-up of composers for film, television, and video games. Hailing from all around the world, these composers who started out in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Canada, Italy, and around the United States, all made their way to Los Angeles to work in media music. Their music has already been featured in major motion pictures, on television, and at the top film festivals but on Saturday, July 21st at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre, their music will take its place front-and-center as the driving force behind the emotion and action of film.

The festival is also a platform for up-and-coming filmmakers, offering them an opportunity to connect with these experienced film composers and to learn how to make the most out their collaboration with a composer to bring out the best in their work. Faculty from the New York Film Academy – Los Angeles and L.A. Film School curate the strongest short films of 2018 and the festival pairs these young filmmakers with our participating composers. The collaboration and the resulting music will be on display – LIVE – at the festival performance.

The Los Angeles Live Score Film Festival is produced by Helix Collective and the Academy of Scoring Arts. The 2018 festival sponsors are Orange Tree Samples, Sonic Fuel Studios, and White Bear PR.
