To celebrate our current NKS Vocal Special, we’re zooming in on the world of cinematic scoring. With his handy how-to guide, product specialist Reuben Cornell gave a unique insight into his workflow when composing for film, and now it’s over to you to show us what you’ve got, by creating your own soundtrack to the video. You can use whatever instruments, effects, and sounds you think will work best – it’s all down to you.

Submit your tracks via the Metapop competition page to be in with a chance of winning some heavyweight Native prizes to inspire your future scores. All entries must be submitted before August 23 for consideration. That doesn’t give you much time, so you’d better get your creative caps on.
