Alumnus Curtis Roush '80 was the music editor for <i>The Hunger Games</i>.

When the credits roll, there's a good chance Berklee alumni will be among the names listed for their behind-the-scenes work on Hollywood's latest hits. They've got their soundprints on the big screen, as composers, orchestrators, and music editors, as well as music editors, programmers, and mixers, to name just a few roles.

From Curtis Roush '80, music editor for The Hunger Games, the screen adaptation of the first in Suzanne Collins's wildly popular post-apocalyptic trilogy; to Melissa Muik '01, music supervisor/supervising music editor for the musical comedy The Muppets, the largest grossing Muppets movie of all time; to Stephane Wrembel '02, composer of the theme song for Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris, Berklee's alumni are putting their sonic stamps on some of the most talked about movies.

And they're earning some industry recognition for their work. Howard Shore '69, composer for the 3-D children's film Hugo, and Michael Semanick '85, rerecording mixer for the crime thriller The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, both earned Oscar nods for those 2011 films.
