    The TCM Young Film Composers Competition

    I know, I know ... age descrimination (18-35 years old ) ... but ...

    For anyone who is interested and hasn't heard yet, the details for the 7th annual Turner Classic Movies Young Film Composers Competition are up at http://www.turnerclassicmovies-yfcc.com/

    I've already submitted my entry

    If I win, aside from a certain place freezing over, I'll tell them about the idea for an Old Film Composers Competition.

    Ah, thanks, I guess they changed the location qualifications... or I just remembered them incorrectly... or a mixture of both...

    Je suis, aussi. Well, not again - it was my first time.

    C'mon guys, group hug - we're ok!!

    Do you think you'd want to know where you came in of the 600 plus, if it was a list they produced?

    I'd be very satisfied to be in the top 100. But if I came in 487, I'd be pretty disturbed.

    Well... it's not like we LOST... we just didn't WIN. (delusional thinking?)

    I know some of your names - I was in fine company. Congrats to the winners! Are they on this site? ... cuz if they are...

    Eh... I doubt they sort out all the entries. They probably have a "definitely loser" pile, a "hmmm, maybe" pile, and a "wow, this is awesome" pile. If there are more than 10 in the "wow, this is awesome" pile, then the other piles can be tossed. Even so, if my entry didn't get into the "wow, this is awesome pile" (which it obviously didn't) then I don't care where it ended up. The competition is a great opportunity to have, but it's ultimately based on what other people think, and I care most about what I think (though that doesn't always pay the bills ).

    Well, yes, technically if we didn't win, we lost. I guess if you want to make yourself feel better you could say "oh, well I learned a lot, so I kind of won." Yeah, ok, good for you. But we still lost.

    Anyway, no reason to be dissappointed unless you were actually expecting to win. ("Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed." )

    Wow, look at all them 's... Congrats to all the finalists!
