We have partnered with iconic composer Christopher Young to create our largest “Score This” contest to date! Winner of the prestigious BMI Richard Kirk Award and Golden Globe Nominee, Chris is a true icon of cinema, with a filmography of over 100 films Chris’ works cover a vast range of classics from Pet Sematary, Spiderman 3, Hellraiser, Sinister, Swordfish and Ghost Rider to only name a few.


To celebrate Chris’ involvement we are offering a massive $8500 worth of prizes and 40% off all the Chris Young libraries (Chris Young Textural Worlds, Chris Young Orchestral Touches, Chris Young The Collection).


We have prepared a short clip using the legendary film Nosferatu (1922). This film stood the test of time as one of the silent era’s most influential masterpieces. With eerie visuals accompanied, Nosferatu helped define the future of horror films, and now we want to hear your creative vision on this timeless classic


We have a massive $8500 prize for the top 3 entries that will be judged by the 8Dio team and Christopher Young.
