About the AGSC

We are a community of professional screen composers who are dedicated to supporting emerging and established Australian screen composers in film, television, gaming or related industries.


Our role is to advocate for, support, and increase recognition of Australian screen composers. We embrace inclusivity and diversity in our industry and welcome the new perspectives and potential it can bring to the art and craft of our practice.


When you hit a brick wall or are facing difficult choices we are here to help or to put you in contact with someone who can.


We are also here for our colleagues in other areas of the industry such as directors, producers, editors, sound editors and mixers. We believe that the better we understand each other and the challenges we all face then the better our collaborations will be, resulting in stronger and more cohesive productions. So please, fellow professionals, reach out to us and we can help de-mystify the creative and practical aspects of scoring for the screen.
