Top Hollywood composers, orchestrators and arrangers introduced to this year’s participants. HMW workshop has been incredibly successful over the past 9 years and we have been able to grow into this excellent summer film music academy. It is 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.

In 2018 starting from composing, orchestration and arrangement through midi mock-ups to recording with a real 50 piece orchestra on the new Synchron Stage Vienna – HMW also covered scoring for video games, big screen and – for the first time – for TV.
