This is Iain Kelso’s entry for the #scorerelief2022 film scoring competition. The music is written somewhat in the style of 80s fantasy animation film scores and draws from orchestral forces only.

Sprite Fright, Blender Studio’s 13th open movie, is an 80’s-inspired horror comedy set in Britain. When a group of rowdy teenagers trek into an isolated forest, they discover peaceful mushroom creatures that turn out to be an unexpected force of nature.

Score Relief is a free film scoring contest, open to all, running in parallel with our fundraiser to support a charity of our choice. This year we are partnering with In Place of War, a global organization that uses creativity as a tool for positive change in places of conflict.

For composers, thousands of dollars’ worth of prizes are available, principal of which is the opportunity to have your music performed and recorded by session orchestra Northern Film Orchestra at the prestigious Stoller Hall in Manchester, England.
