BERLIN — The Volkswagen Score Competition, part of the fifth annual Berlinale Talent Campus, went to the Berlin-based composer Ilja Coric for his new scoring of an excerpt from “One Day in Wolfsburg.”
Jury members Martin Steyer, Martin Todsharow and Jan Kaczmarek were impressed by Coric’s “fresh way of presenting his craftfully worked out score.”
The composer will be invited on a one-week trip to visit the Dolby music and sound studios in Los Angeles.
The award Thursday night capped a Campus schedule in which 362 young filmmakers from around the world huddled in the Hebbel am Ufer theaters for six intensive days.
Among the highlights were interviews with Walter Salles, John Waters, Bianca Jagger, Jasmila Zbanic, Tom Tykwer, Wim Wenders and Competition jury member Gael Garcia Bernal.
Another initiative involved so-called Garage Flicks, which were sponsored by Apple. Four different instant pics were produced over the week — “Resigned,” “One Day of These Days,” “Click-Clack-Clack” and “The Discreet Charms of the Refugee” — and were unveiled to the public on the big screen in Hau 1.
BBC Films head David Thompson moderated a discussion about working in digital production, which included the project’s mentors, Jia Zhangke, Grahame Weinbren and Jay Anania.
