Irish Composer Selected For ASCAP Scoring Workshop
24 May 2007 :
Irish film and television composer Louise Heaney has been chosen as one of 12 composers to participate in the 2007 ASCAP Television & Film Scoring Workshop with Richard Bellis (Emmy award winner for the score of Stephen King’s ‘IT’ and a nomination for HBO’s ‘Doublecrossed’).

The ASCAP Film Scoring workshop is "one-of-a-kind" experience for aspiring film and television composers, which each year sees hundreds of composer applicants from around the globe battling it out receive a much coveted initiation to take part in the course.

The 12 selected participants have the opportunity to record their original compositions with an “A-List” of Hollywood professionals, including a 40-piece orchestra on a major studio film scoring stage. In addition, there are "From the Horse's Mouth" sessions with studio executives, agents, attorneys and music supervisors.

Irish composers that have previously attended the course include Philip Carty and David Downes (Musical Director/Composer for the Celtic Woman production).

Participant Louise Heaney has previously won the Best Original Score at the NYC Movie Making Madness for the horror ‘The King's Tradition’ and has provided original music for many film and TV projects including ‘Feng Shui And My TV’ and several reports for RTE's ‘Capital D’. In 2006 she was awarded a bursary from the Arts Council of Ireland/Screen Training Ireland to travel to New York to study with Steven Scott Smalley, orchestrator on the feature films ‘Batman’ and ‘Mission Impossible’.
