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:
Filmmakers submit a 60-second silent film
Composers submit a 60-second recorded piece
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
The completed films will be uploaded and shared on our Vimeo channel, and we will arrange a screening of the best films.
There will be a small administration fee to take part in Cinema SoundEX. We intend to run the first project in mid-2020.

WHEN WILL CINEMA SOUNDEX RUN?
The project has been delayed due to the COVID-19 lockdown. We plan to run it in mid 2020. If you wish to take part, start working on your 60-second submission.
IS THERE A FEE FOR TAKING PART?
There will be a small fee to cover administrative costs.
ARE THERE PRIZES? IS THERE FINANCIAL BACKING?
No. This is not a competition; it is a collaborative artistic exercise. The purpose of this project is to create portfolio content and connect with collaborators.
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.
