CINEMA SOUNDEX

collaboration for filmmakers and composers

Cinema SoundEx is a collaboration between composers and filmmakers that you can take part in from anywhere in the world.

Here's how it works:

First cycle

Filmmakers submit a 60-second silent film

Composers submit a 60-second recorded piece

Second cycle

The filmmakers are provided with one piece of music; the composers are provided with one silent film

Filmmakers have 3 weeks to make a 60-second film to their given piece of music​

Composers have 3 weeks to create a soundtrack to their given silent film

Distribution

The completed films will be uploaded and shared on our Vimeo channel, and we will arrange a screening of the best films.

FAQ

WHEN WILL CINEMA SOUNDEX RUN?

We are running Cinema SoundEX twice a year: in Jan/Feb and in Sept/Oct. 

IS THERE A FEE FOR TAKING PART?

There will be a small fee to cover administrative costs.

ARE THERE PRIZES? 

Each participant will receive a digital certificate, and their work will be showcased on our channels. The best film (where the music and film work the best together) will receive a digital laurel. This project aims to create portfolio content and connect collaborators; there is no financial award currently.

CAN I TAKE PART AS A COMPOSER AND A FILMMAKER?

Yes. That means you will create both a 60-second silent film and a separate 60-second composition, and then will have to create another 60-second film and another soundtrack. You will have the same deadlines as other participants.

CAN YOU BUILD A SOUNDSCAPE INSTEAD OF WRITE MUSIC?

Yes, you can create a full sound design rather than compose a musical soundtrack.

WHEN DO THE FILMS GET SCREENED?

We screen the best films in the cinema with the one-month film projects.
