BMI Vice President, Film/TV Relations, Doreen Ringer-Ross, and prolific composer George S. Clinton (whose work includes musical scoring for Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee, A Dirty Shame, Red Shoe Diaries, The Tooth Fairy, Mortal Kombat, Salvation Boulevard and the Austin Powers film franchise) engaged in discussions with students of the Vermont College of Fine Arts (VCFA) Master of Fine Arts in Music Composition program, from Aug. 3–4, 2014, in Montpelier, Vermont.

Ringer-Ross and Clinton provided insider insights as industry experts during a roundtable dialogue within the program’s immersive model that brings students and faculty together for a week-long intensive residency, overseen by Faculty Chair Rick Baitz. This musically inclusive program offers opportunities to work across five focus areas: Film, TV and Game Scoring, Concert Music, Electronic Music, Songwriting and Jazz. Ringer-Ross also moderated a panel discussion with the composer teachers.
