Film Scoring in the 1960s
Introduced by Christopher Budd
The end of the US studio system, a revitalised British film industry, and the emergence of pop music as a cultural force; It was a perfect storm. Squeeze into your best bellbottoms and spend two hours with writer and teacher Christopher Budd exploring how composers and filmmakers on both sides of the Atlantic tackled the challenges and opportunities of film scoring in the decade which took us from West Side Story to Midnight Cowboy, from Psycho to Planet of The Apes, and from How The West Was Won to Zabriskie Point.
Day Trip to Lincoln
We will be visiting The Collection and having a private film screening in the auditorium. This year, to allow working members to participate, we have planned the trip for a Saturday.
Full details and booking form will be emailed out to members in February.
Please let us know if you have any requests for future events.
