Tom Schipper is the first graduate of the master programme in Composing for Film to win the Keep an Eye Filmscore Award. On June 25th he received the award for his score of The Library of Things, a graduation project by students from the Netherlands Film Academy. The Keep an Eye Filmscore Award has been established this year to generate attention to film scores, and is awarded during the Keep an Eye Film Academy Festival.
From the jury report: ‘The winning composer shows a large talent for composing, which he puts to use very effectively in a score that is clearly in service of the narration and drama of the film. Furthermore, the productional level of the score is high: he dared to fully orchestrate his composition and have it performed by an orchestra. This shows flair and organizational abilities.’
Tom Schipper graduated from the bachelor’s programme in Composition in 2016. In the same year he continued his studies in the master programme in Composing for Film with Jurre Haanstra. The music of The Library of Things is his graduation work.
