Composer Interviews


Thank you Ned Ginsburg!

Last Thursday uber-orchestrator and composer Ned Paul Ginsburg gave a warm, informative and entertaining talk to Melbourne screen composers.

Ned has a lifetime of experience working as an orchestrator at the very top of the film and theatre worlds in New York and Hollywood, and he discussed collaborations with the likes of Elliot Goldenthal and the legendary Alan Menken to name but a few. He shared with us some of the tips and tricks of the trade, insightful stories of risk and reward, and of pressure and perseverance.

Thank you Ned for your generosity, and we hope to see you again when you are back in Australia.

Finally, many thanks to APRA for their generous support in hosting this event!
