LAB #3 Working on Sex Education / Music Production and Composing

Ever wondered how shows like the Netflix teen comedy-drama Sex Education create their original music? Or what exactly a composer working in film and TV does? Want to know how to create a music that elevates a film with or without a big budget?

Oli Julian, Sheffield based composer, producer and arranger of music for Netflix, TV, commercials and indie feature films will share his career journey, creative practice and collaborations and give us some insights into scoring music for comedic and dramatic moments in shows like Sex Education.

Oli’s work was nominated in the Best TV Score category at the Ivor Novello Awards 2021 and he has worked on Independent Feature, How to Build a Girl, based on the novel by Caitlin Moran and a wide range of shows including Catastrophe (C4), Cuckoo (BBC3) and Plebs (ITV2), as well as Josh (BBC3), Cockroaches (ITV2), GapYear (C4), Crashing (C4), Year Of The Rabbit (C4).

This session will be of particular interest to anyone interested in film, soundtracks and music production.
