With examples from previous BSFO scores, Mirowitz will cover the central topics of making music for film, from creating thematic material, determining the language of the score, and collaborating with a writing team to how to synchronize with the film in writing and performance. The presentation will conclude with a sneak preview of the BSFO's newest score—to Harold Lloyd’s comedy classic The Freshman—which will receive its world premiere at the Coolidge on Monday, May 1, 2017.

In honor of the momentous 10-year anniversary of Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!Tim & Eric are hitting the road this summer for a special 10-Year Anniversary Awesome Tour. In the words of Tim & Eric, “It’s been 10 years. We are heading out to see our chips across the U.S.A. and celebrate this incredible decade of Tim and Eric with a number of new spoofs and goofs, riffs and bits, songs and dances, and hope to create memories to last a lifetime.” 

The comedy duo of Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim have developed such a distinct and creative style, it’s no surprise that writers and advertising agencies across the country have essentially named a style after their bizarre brand of humor. In addition to Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, for which they are best known, and their first feature film, Tim & Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie, they run Abso Lutely Productions, a production team behind some of today’s most exciting and original television programs including the Eric Andre Show, Nathan For You, Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories, Check It Out! with Dr. Steve Brule, W/ Bob & David, Comedy Bang! Bang!, and Decker, among others, plus the web series “On Cinema.” Additionally, Eric directed four episodes of the first season of Netflix’s Emmy Award-winning show, Master of None, on which he also stars alongside the show’s creator and lead Aziz Ansari, and is a renowned director of music videos for artists including MGMT, Major Lazer, Beach House, Charli XCX, Flying Lotus, and more. Tim has acted in Eastbound & Down, The Comedy, Bridesmaids, Portlandia, and other films and television programs. He is also a musician who released his first solo album last year, and is known for writing and releasing music about the current political landscape.
