Composing a piece as part of the 30 minute Film Group taster session proved incredibly challenging due to both time and orchestration restraints. Nonetheless, it was a valuable learning experience that offered incredible insight into the typically stressful conditions a film composer may encounter on a day-to-day basis. What really pushed me outside my comfort zone was having to write incredibly fast, especially as what we came up with had to also compliment the scene we were given! Regardless of the pressure, it was an enjoyable experience and one that I have learnt a great deal from.
