She Shoots, She Scores, a new initiative launched today provides a career-progression opportunity for an emerging South Australian resident female composer to be attached to multi-award winning musician, performer and screen composer Amanda Brown (Look Both Ways, Red Obsession, Grace Beside Me and The Family) on an upcoming project.
The She Shoots, She Scores paid composer attachment is an initiative of the South Australian Film Corporation (SAFC) and the South Australian Government’s Music Development Office (MDO), in partnership with the Australian Guild of Screen Composers (AGSC).
Judging applications along with Amanda Brown will be AGSC President Caitlin Yeo (The Butterfly Tree, After the Apology and David Stratton; A Cinematic Life) and AGSC Gender Equity Committee member John Gray (Blue Murder, The Surgery Ship and Go Back to Where You Came From).
The recipient of She Shoots, She Scores will be announced at a special screening of the documentary about women in Australian music, Her Sound, Her Story at the Mercury Cinema in Adelaide on September 21, presented by the SAFC and the MDO.
Directed, produced and edited by Claudia Sangiorgi Dalimore and co-produced by Michelle Grace Hunder, Her Sound, Her Story features conversations with more than 45 artists spanning six decades of Australian music. Together they unveil the personal, historical and social legacies of an incredible journey.
Following the screening, a panel discussion hosted by broadcaster and Artistic Director of the Adelaide Cabaret Festival Julia Zemiro will bring together the filmmakers, acclaimed screen composer and former member of The Go Betweens Amanda Brown and Adelaide’s own award-winning independent singer/songwriter MANE (aka Paige Court).
