Music for media (course)

INFO: 12 month dip. course, Summer 2007 , 6 Trk showreel, CD single sleeve

This was twelve month practical course where each unit dealt with composing a piece of music based on a real world brief. Everything from natural history, animation and advertisements to corporate videos and short films. What I really liked about it was how commissioned music, like graphic design, cuts out alot of the, as I see it, self indulgent artistic waffle ;) The music has to match the brief within a given deadline.

Granted I now prefer working on graphics based commissions but what I took from this course was an ethos that really helped me sharpen up my own workflow.
