Composer Sheldon Mirowitz (professor of Film Scoring at Berklee College of Music, three-time Emmy nominee and Director of the Berklee Silent Film Orchestra) will discuss the process of creating and then presenting live-to-picture a new score for a silent feature.  

With examples from previous BSFO scores, he 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 the Harold Lloyd comedy classic The Freshman — which will premiere at the Coolidge on Monday, May 1st.
