Film Scoring Practicum
A real-world immersion course in which students learn about aspects of film scoring that go beyond composition and production by scoring actual student films. These will include one collaboration with a senior electronic production and design student who is creating sound design, as well as at least one student film from a local college. Some of these student films will be provided through the professors; however, students will be able to find their own films if they wish. Lectures and discussions will consist of real-world examples of how the director-composer relationship works, as well as critiques of student projects and processes. Admission to the course is by application.
