Broadcast Music, Inc. was proud to once again to show its support of the Sundance Institute’s Film Music Program. Sundance Institute collaborated for the second year with Skywalker Sound to host the Sundance Institute Music and Sound Design Labs at Skywalker Sound. Its first 2014 session of the Lab began July 8 and provided an opportunity for composers and directors to explore the collaborative process of writing music for feature film.

As a founding supporter of the Institute’s Composers Labs, BMI has played a critical role in the long-term development of the Lab and has furthered the careers of many film composers by presenting a composer/director roundtable each year at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. The roundtable highlights the composers who have scored films in the Festival, as well as their filmmakers.

At the Lab, fellows worked with a variety of Creative Advisors, a distinguished group of film composers, sound designers, filmmakers and film industry professionals. The program aims to give composers first-hand experience working on film music and sound design, while giving directors insight into the process as well.
