Music can set a scene. In the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra’s case, it will set many scenes, as they explore the score from the short film Flying South which takes audiences through the beauty of New Zealand’s wilderness. Los Angeles based Kiwi composer Mark Smythe reveals how he’s broken into the Hollywood scene and the secrets of writing for film and television.
