I forgot to post these two competitions that were held this past year. Both of the competitions were affiliated with the Indie Gathering Film Festival held in Ohio every year. I entered the 2017 "Horror Hotel" and "Indie Gathering Film Scoring" contests. Kind of misleading in that there's no film scoring taking place... you're just composing music for a film trailer.
I received "winner" laurels for both competitions but failed to actually win!
Here's a link to the Horror Hotel "Dark Resonance" trailer where I did all the sound design AND music: Dark Resonance film trailer
Here's a link to the Indie Gathering film trailer for the film "Roman Citizen" where I also did all the sound design AND music: Roman Citizen film trailer
