Artist Talk with Sound Designer/Composer David Parfit

March 17, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


With apologies for the short notice, we have decided to postpone this event. Out of an abundance of caution, we want to do our part in curbing the exponential spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will aim to reschedule and post a new event date soon.

Join us for a FREE artist talk by local sound designer, composer, and recording mixer David Parfit. CineVic is pleased to have him as the seventh mentor in our new film training program The Incubators!

David Parfit is a trained composer with a Master in Music Technology from New York University and a passion for exploring non-traditional sounds. Known for his easy-going demeanour, technological expertise, and creative approach, David has created scores that have been heard around the world in theatres, online, and on TV (CBC, BBC, ABC, PBS, ESPN, National Geographic, and others). His feature film work includes Esluna: The First Monolith (2018, co-scored with Marc Junker), The Hollow Child (2017), Maureen Bradley’s award-winning comedy Two 4 One (2015) and the critically-acclaimed documentary, Saving Luna (later re-edited with narration by Ryan Reynolds and released in US theatres as The Whale – co-composed with Tobin Stokes). Film and TV projects that David has scored have won more than 50 industry and festival awards worldwide. He is the owner of Seaside Sound, where he’s accumulated ten years of experience in composing, producing, post-production sound design, editing, and mixing for film and TV. David and business partner Scott Amos run the interactive installation art company Monkey C Interactive, which recently designed and installed the now-well-known Musical Railings in downtown Victoria and Floralume in New Westminster.
