Stefan French has received the Steve Kaplan Film and TV Award, awarded by the ASCAP Foundation, in recognition of his talent and achievements as a film and TV composer.

The award was presented at the ASCAP Foundation's 20th annual Award Ceremony in New York earlier this month, and was a result of the work he did during his participation on the ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop in Los Angeles in July 2015.

During this workshop Stefan received mentorship and training from key members of the film scoring community including John Powell, Richard Bellis, Bear McCreary and Dennis Sands among others. The culmination of this workshop saw him composing, orchestrating and conducting an original cue on the Newman Scoring Stage at 20th Century Fox with the Hollywood Studio Symphony. Stefan was one of 12 people chosen, from over 300 applications worldwide, to participate on the workshop this year.

Speaking to IFTN about winning the award, Stefan French said: “To gain this kind of recognition from people who are so highly respected within the film music industry is highly motivating and encouraging, and I am extremely grateful.”

French’s upcoming projects include ‘I Live For You’, directed by Monika Wesley and produced by Sobini Films, which is beginning its festival run in the US early this year.
