What does it take to be a fulltime composer for film and TV? Australian Institute of Music (AIM) Melbourne will present this exciting panel featuring renowned composers Steeve Body (Seal, Yalumba, Holden), Robert Sedky (The Nothing Men, Beast) and Caitlin Yeo (Growing Up Gayby, The Killing Field, All My Friends are Leaving Brisbane).
