VSCO 2: Professional Edition is coming to Kontakt Player and in celebration, we held a contest for ALL users of VSCO 2!
For the contest, we "discovered" two short films unscored, one more serious and the other more humorous and asked our users to use their skills as composers to create unique scores using our products. The results were absolutely stunning all around, and it is our pleasure to share their works with our community.
Feel free to check out the winning entries below. Videos with the Pro Edition winning entries will be made available in the coming weeks as soon as custom title cards are prepared.
"Seasons" is a short, symbolic film consisting of representations of each season. Above is an example scoring to help you come up with a sense of the range of possibilities VSCO 2 Pro offers. Download a silent version to score to: [DOWNLOAD - 54 MB]
"The Adventures of S.A. Gossner" is a brief and highly educational nature documentary we found while rifling through a box of old films. Unfortunately it must have run out of funding before the music could be composed, and only has a narration recorded on the tape. Maybe you can help restore this film to what it might have been?

Although the Community Edition portion of the contest opened later, we received many excellent entries using it. I have curated a few "honorable mentions" in addition to the judges' selections that show the range and quality of these entries.
Custom title cards like these will be sent to the composers whose scores for "Seasons" placed in the contest.
