Scoring for video games is an aspect of composing for screen that is crucial to this year’s WSA Film Music Days from 19 until 21 October. Stephanie Economou (Assassin's Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarök) and Borislav Slavov (Baldur’s Gate 3) have extensive experience as game composers, and will be sharing their expertise. They will be accompanied by other composers such as Gordy Haab & Stephen Barton (Star Wars Jedi: Survivor) and Austin Wintory (Journey). Japanese multi-instrumentalist and composer Eiko Ishibashi will be joined on stage by frequent collaborator director Ryûsuke Hamaguchi to talk about their Creative Partnership.
