Music in Sci-Fi: the Sound of Black Mirror

Videoland initiated the Videoland Academy, a new talent development project, supported by the Dutch Film Fund in collaboration with NFF, IDFA, IFFR, Dr. Script, Nederlandse Filmacademie, PlanetX, Filmmore and Buma Music in Motion. Within the theme ‘grounded sci fi’: four fiction and one documentary series have been selected for this talent project. We on our side selected five composers who will meet the filmmakers in a matchmaking session. But first, in order to promote the role of music in sci fi series, we organize an in-depth conversation with the music supervisor responsible for the soundtrack of Black Mirror: Amelia Hartley.

Amelia is an award winning music supervisor, taking an award at Music Week’s Sync Awards, and being the first person from the UK nominated at the prestigious Annual Guild of Music Supervisors Awards. Through her 15 years working as Head of Music for Endemol UK, credits include Peaky Blinders, Fortitude, Black Mirror, Big Brother, the iTunes Festival, the Brit Awards and Fame Academy.

The Q&A with Amelia Hartley is moderated by Dutch mucisian & songwriter Rita Zipora Verbrugge.

Please note: this is a closed session.
