“Composing for the Screen,” a film scoring mentorship program sponsored by BMI and directed by composer Rick Baitz, recently wrapped in New York. Nine emerging film composers participated in six high-level sessions where they explored a wide range of film sources: composing, recording, reviewing, and sharing work in a supportive environment.

For their final project, each participant composed a cue to a well-known film, which was then recorded by an ensemble consisting of prominent, top-notch New York recording artists. A year following the workshop, regular meetings will be held with the participants, to monitor, advise, and continue their development as film composers.
