Now in its fourth year, Composers Lab: LA is a day-long workshop for composers, filmmakers, students and other industry professionals looking to engage with music in film. The event will empower and connect the next wave of emerging artists by offering them access to some of the top composers working in film and television today.
Focusing on craft, process and tricks of the trade, the day, led by Peter Golub, Director of the Sundance Institute Film Music program, will be packed with panels and discussions with a diverse line up of presenters and industry veterans. Speakers and panelists will include Academy Award-nominated composer Thomas Newman (Skyfall, American Beauty, Saving Mr. Banks) and composers Jeff Beal (House of Cards, Pollock, Ugly Betty), John Frizzell (Ghost Ship, Legion, Cradle 2 Grave), Blake Neely (The Mentalist, The Last Samurai, Resurrection), Trevor Morris (The Tudors, The Hills Have Eyes, The Borgias) and others. In addition, a panel on career issues will be led by BMI's Doreen Ringer Ross. The day will also include a complimentary lunch and will end with a reception to network with fellow composers and Sundance Institute staff.
