Make it Reel Musician /Composer
We are also looking for expressions of interest in leading on the music / composition strand of the Make it Reel summer school.
We’re shaking things up with this year’s film-making summer school, and offering a wider variety of opportunities and art forms for young people so they can choose a specialism (either Acting, Music, or Film-Making), more akin to how industry works. Working alongside professional artists, each specialist group will focus on their preferred role while gaining a greater understanding of how all the elements come together to create a film.
We are looking for someone to work with Ludic Rooms to help design and run the music strand of the summer school. The role will be paid at a freelance artist day rate – full time for one week from 6 – 10 August with some part-time planning hours before hand.

Please get in touch to tell us about your experience and your interest in the role.
