Christopher Young Returns to Varna, Bulgaria this summer for the 2018 International Film Scoring Program

Now in its 4th year, this 24-day program aims to provide composers with comprehensive and fundamental techniques in scoring for Film, TV and Visual Media.  It examines the responsibilities, workflows and processes of the composer from initial commission through the final completion of the score

Participants will score a scene from a major Hollywood movie, have it recorded with a 38-member orchestra, and have it dubbed to picture. Participants will also compose for a 9-member ensemble and a 25-member ensemble, providing live material for their film scoring portfolio, a prerequisite for successful scoring engagements.

This program is suited for all musicians, including professional and non-professional composers, performers and producers, who wish to develop and explore composing music for Film, TV & other Visual Media.


This program provides participants with an introduction to industry workflows and practices, and provides professional recorded material for their composition portfolio, a prerequisite for successfully “pitching” for scoring engagements. At the end of this program, you will be able to score a movie!
