Film Scoring Student Making Waves in Hollywood

After only 8 months on the 1 Year Scoring for Film and Visual Media masters program here at Pulse College, Irish composer Stefan French was accepted on to the prestigious ASCAP Film Scoring workshop with Richard Bellis in LA earlier this Summer, chosen as one of 12 composers from over 300 submissions worldwide. The workshop is regarded as one of the top training opportunities in the world for emerging composers for film, and its list of alumni includes many of the top names currently working within the industry.

Hollywood entertainment trade magazine, Variety, recently published an article on the workshop, “ASCAP Scoring Workshop Gives Top-12 Upcoming Composers Taste of Hollywood” and covered the Film Scoring work being created by Pulse student Stefan.

Stay tuned to the blog and social media channels as we will be speaking with Stefan about the experience and what this workshop, paired with his Masters from Pulse College will mean for his future Film Scoring career.

Quote from Richard Bellis, ASCAP Board Member & Visiting Tutor on the Pulse College MA in Scoring program: “The ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop for 2015 is officially wrapped. And now, a fully prepared, crack team of ninja composers will disperse throughout the international film music industry ready to elevate and “re-sophisticate” our (formerly) illustrious profession!”
