Turning our close film analysis work towards the expressive potential of film soundtracks, in this workshop we celebrate the extraordinary filmmaking career of composer Ennio Morricone (1928-2020). The creator of scores for over 400 films, Morricone’s music has become intimately connected with Italian cinema as well as filmmaking and film viewing traditions across the diaspora and beyond. Through films as diverse as A Fistful of Dollars (1964), The Mission (1986), Cinema Paradiso (1988) and The Hateful Eight (2015), for many generations of filmgoers, the very art of film music is firmly stamped with Morricone’s hand.
In this workshop we will view key clips from beloved Morricone scored films and direct our analytical skills towards discussion and a developed appreciation of those qualities which a Morricone score can provide. We know how important good music is to our love of cinema. This workshop will explore exactly how important Ennio Morricone is.
Attendees are encouraged to pre-watch the documentary, Ennio: The Maestro (Giuseppe Tornatore, 2021) which is available to be streamed on various platforms.

Mark Nicholls is Senior Lecturer in Cinema Studies at the University of Melbourne where he has taught film since 1993. Mark has worked as a film journalist for ABC Radio and The Age and has a list of over twenty stage credits as a playwright, performer, producer, and director.
