Mike Smith | Scoring for Television


Brought to you by Screen Composers Guild of New Zealand and SOUNZ.

Join us for this informal session with veteran director Mike Smith to discuss working with music for TV.

Since cutting his teeth on 1978 soap 'Radio Waves', Mike Smith has built one of the longest directing CVs in local television, winning awards en route for both drama and comedy. In 2005 he produced the debut season of 'Outrageous Fortune', and played a hand in its casting. He has also created or helped create the shows: 'Serial Killer', hit comedy 'Willy Nilly', 'The Lost Children' and campground comedy 'Sunny Skies'.

His more recent work includes such hits as 'The Bad Seed', 'Mistress Mercy', '800 Words', 'Siege' and 'The Brokenwood Mysteries'. Mike will be telling us how he approaches music in his work, showing us examples of its usage, and talking about both the challenges and the fun times facing television directors in relation to music and sound design. More info on Mike here.

This will be a session not to be missed, so pop it in your diaries.

Open to SOUNZ composers, members of all screen guilds and other interested parties.
