Composing for film has been a dream of mine for a couple of decades now, but life responsibilities always got in the way of being able to go back to school for this purpose.

 I took this online course for four reasons: inspiration, education, feedback and deadlines. From the assignments and unscored short films I got inspiration to write beautiful lines.
