Anybody on these forums submit anything yet for this composing opportunity? You get the chance to win a job interview with Bleeding Fingers productions in LA to work as a film composer! Great opportunity even though you don't end up getting the job.

The contest stipulates that you MUST use at least one of the stems created by the piece and that it has to be from 60-120 seconds in length.  I would love to hear all of your entries!

I chose to change the theme and melody of the original and go with a gradual epic finish: https://soundcloud.com/renan-javier/destiny-awaits-bleeding

Anyways.  Looking forward to hearing your entries people!!!

  • Decided to read the rules for fun, guess what I found?

    "This Competition is open to residents of the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada (excluding Quebec), Germany and Sweden only."

    So, basically, f*** them. No, seriously, this is beyond ridiculous at this point. But at least I haven't wasted my weekend. :P

  • So, the competition is closed or not? I want to submit my work if it's open... It says until february 24th... Oh, i guess that Serbia isn't part of any of these... 

  • Career? More like a free three day trip to L.A. plus a 500 bucks bonus. Not a bad deal for roughly a day's work. Admittedly the prize isn't guaranteed, but there's plenty of other Saturday activities you could spend your energy on that provide even slimmer a chance of earning substantial amounts of money (beer is a model example).

    Sorry for the language, by the way. I'm sort of used to forum boards with automatic filtering.

  • Here's my contribution to the contest. I took percussion and brass stems into the composition. Please have a listen. Thanks.

  • Thanks for listening the track, Ray, even though you weren't finishing it haha. What do you mean by "no one plays like that" ?? Too impossible to play, ya think?

  • Here is my entry. I must say, I had fun composing this and using the stems.

  • Ray, how do you suggest for a believable phrasing on the guitar part? Can you give us an example?
  • Very nice version of yours, Jon. :)

  • Thanks Ray, thats a good point I didn't think of. I guess I was trying to cram as much as possible into two minutes.

    Jon,

    I like the brass but I'm completely thrown by the ethnic voice samples. Just an opinion of course but a finish like that would have me think of starting with some kind of ethnic flute. Or......................a more classical choral ending.

    Thanks for sharing here
