HOLLYWOOD director Jonathon Kay welcomed local composer Igelese Ete last week to seek his musical assistance for the upcoming movie Dolphins.

The head of performing arts at the University of the South Pacific in Suva, was flown to Los Angeles by the university to discuss the soundtrack for the movie that is set to premier in February, 2014.

Mr Ete's task is to figure out all the scenes that will require new and original music — a task he will need to complete within a four-week period.

"It's going to be a huge challenge but I'm excited about it as it will push me to another level," he said in a statement earlier this week.

He explained that over the four-weeks, he would be required to put together a total of 50 minutes of music, "which is a vast amount in the music world, especially in the space of four weeks".
