My Oticons Faculty Grand Prize trip to the Krakow Film Music Festival, proved a valuable and inspiring introduction to the film music community. I made some much appreciated new acquaintances, both among emerging and established composers, as well as the many other film music professionals attending the festival.
Having been introduced to a number of international key players in the business, has radically improved my starting point, as I go on to expand my professional network and look for opportunities abroad. George Christopoulos of Oticons was a wonderful companion during the festival, he eagerly introduced me to both celebrity artists, organizers and a range of other professionals, and I really enjoyed his pleasant company.
I am very grateful for everything I have gained – and will gain from this experience, and I will definitely recommend it to anyone seeking to expand their opportunities in the field.
