About the Event

Throughout April WFTV will be hosting a special event series on upskilling, with talks, workshops and 1-2-1 clinics designed to develop your skillset. From focused insights on different fields and roles in the industry to how you can best collaborate with others and, get the most out of your project, there’s something for everyone whichever stage of your career you’re at.

Join TV composer Claire Batchelor for a fascinating look into her working process.

From discussions with a director to having a spotting session, learn how you can collaborate creatively with a composer and how to effectively communicate about scoring music for a project. In this session, you will gain an insight as to what a composer does once you've given them your brief, and how best to express yourself when giving feedback notes on music.

This session is open to all members who are interested in the role of a TV and film composer, no music knowledge is needed.

Claire Batchelor was a WFTV Mentee on the 2020 mentoring Scheme with mentor Lorraine Heggessey. Her music has been used by McDonald’s, Amex, BBC News, BBC Royal Wedding coverage, ITV News, Horizon, Panorama, Mary Berry’s Quick Cooking, Celebrity Masterchef, Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas, The Apprentice, Big Brother, Neighbours, Hollyoaks and many more worldwide.  She has created Original Music for The Wonderful World of Puppies for Zinc Media / Channel 5 and a bespoke backing track for ITV’s The Masked Singer.
