#021 July 2017 Graduation

Leaving school and having to learn independently can be a very daunting experience. But fear not! We are here to guide you so you don’t make the same mistakes we did! Spitfire really wants to lend a helping hand to all budding composers entering the world of work, alone and unsure. Christian’s not taken the most conventional route through his career; from being a baker to writing a bit of porn music, to composing music for mainstream television and film. His latest Vlog may help you feel less alone when wondering how to break into writing music for film and TV. One great starting point for any young composer is to “ghost” another established composer, and so we’ve captured Oliver explaining what it is to be a Composer’s Assistant. Whilst this world is highly competitive and requires long hours and dedication, it can be hugely rewarding. Let us get you there with your hair and teeth intact!
