EVENT: an educational workshop in film scoring with 2-time Oscar nominee, Hollywood composer, Marco Beltrami (“310 to Yuma”, “The Hurt Locker”), and his team, Buck Sanders and Jon Kurlander.

In this setting, Marco Beltrami and collaborator, Buck Sanders, worked directly with the student composers to explore the scoring process for one of Marco’s previous film projects, “The 3 Burials of Melquiades Estrada”, written by Guillermo Arriaga (“Babel”, “21 Grams” and “Amores Perros”) directed by Tommy Lee Jones. Marco and Buck mentored the students through the entire creative process; spotted the film and selected 5 scenes for the students to create new, original music. With direct support from ASCAP, we recorded and produced the students’ music with members of the of the Hollywood Studio Orchestra, contracted by Peter Rotter. The session was mixed by award winning engineer, Jon Kurlander (Lord of the Rings: “The Fellowship of the Ring”, “The Two Towers” and “Return of the King”), and broadcast live via the internet, hosted by BitGravity.
