A Film Scoring Summer Academy with Hollywood’s Elite
We offer nine different masterclasses over a period of seven weeks that can be booked individually or as a whole. We are happy to introduce our new and amazing line-up of top Hollywood composers, orchestrators and arrangers to this year’s participants. Our workshop has been incredibly successful over the past 8 years and we have been able to grow into this excellent summer film music academy. This again will be a one of a kind opportunity to work and study with some of Hollywood’s greatest film music talents in the wonderful ambience of the beautiful City of Baden. Composers such as Mozart, Beethoven, Strauss and Lanner performed in this historic Spa Town near Vienna. Starting from composing, orchestration and arrangement through recording with a real orchestra on the new world class Synchron Stage Vienna to final mixing. Our participants can learn the entire film scoring process gaining real-world knowledge delivered by some of Hollywood’s best.

We will make sure that your take will be recorded professionally – using state of the art equipment at the world class Synchron Stage in Vienna to record your music performed by a 50 piece professional orchestra.
Hollywood Acting Workshop
For the first time Hollywood Music Workshop is offering three acting master classes. Acting and film music are the two most important areas of the overall cinematic storytelling. The master classes will be a great opportunity for actors to deepen their skills and to learn aspects of the craft particularly relevant for acting in front of a camera.
- Knowing how to set up your shot
- Differences on super close up, close up, medium shot and a wide shot
- Do your emotions translate to the screen? Understanding how the camera reads your face
- How to make your performance more unique and interesting
- Not in Hollywood – no problem. E-casting is the future. How to master self-taping

The Hollywood Music Workshop is all about bringing talented composers from around the world together in one place, and providing them with first-class courses and a very inspiring working environment. We want to establish a personal relationship between lecturers and participants and therefore let them profit from one another. We love film music and we want to provide other people with a chance of experiencing the magic of film music as well.
