WITH CONRAD POPE
Film Music – Composition, Orchestration & Live Recording
July 1 – 14, 2013, Klosterneuburg near Vienna/Austria
This unique workshop, created and established by American concert violinist DIMITRIE LEIVICI and Austrian radio host LILO BELLOTTO offers the exciting and one of a kind possibility to work with one of Hollywoods busiest composers and top orchestrators, CONRAD POPE, composer for “My week with Marilyn” and orchestrator for Academy Award winning movies “Argo” and “Life of Pi” in a close and Hollywood style working environment.
CONRAD POPE will instruct the participants with the use of film clips provided by major Hollywood motion picture companies from current and well known movies on how to properly score a scene. Thus the student will learn how to achieve the desired goals in the most effective way and be able to record their own version to these clips in an optional, professional style recording session. We wish to thank Mr. MIKE KNOBLOCH, President of Film Music – UNIVERSAL STUDIOS for providing the scenes for study purposes.
A sound engineer of international reputation, FRANKIE CHINAKSY, will prepare the participants for the recording experience, further details on the “Live Recording Session” page.
To have the chance to be so close to a successful and well known Hollywood composer for such an intense work period and receive his advice and direct personal input, will bring incomparable benefits for every upcoming student and professional of the filmmusic genre.
Therefore, and in order to maximize the learning benefits for all the participants, only a limited number of students can and will be admitted for active participation.
Passive enrollment will also be accepted on a limited basis.
