BMIM x NFF Pro Talk: Lolita Ritmanis

90’s Kids! Get ready for a nostalgic musical trip down memory lane. Composer and Emmy winner, Lolita Ritmanis, will join us live during BMIM x NFF Prof Talk. Lolita orchestrated more than 100 movies, miniseries and and television shows, such as Lethal Weapon 4, X-Files Movie and Robin Hood – Prince of Thieves. Join us on September 25 at 20:30h for a live session where she’ll discuss her work and life as a composer.

Lolita’s resume is what you call impressive. She studied at the Dick Grove School of Music where she specialized in film music. Together with fellow composers Michael McCuistion and Kristopher Carter she is one of the founders of Dynamic Music Partners. You also might know her as the composer of several action animantion series such as Justice League, Batman Beyond, Teen Titans, Ben 10 and Batman: The Animated Series. On top of that she’s one of the founders of the Alliance for Women Film Composers – an organization that enhances and celebrates the work of female composers by advocacy and education.

Some other higlights in her career are the documentary Wild Daze (with Jane Goodall) and her music for the gender parity series Flip the Script (with Lake Bell).

During the Prof Talk we’ll focus on the differences between composing for animation and live-action, as well as the differences between working on an episode of a series versus composing for (animated) feature films and the art of creating music that enhances the action, rather than drowning it out.
