Culminating Experience in Film Scoring 1
Course Code: OCOMP-693
In this first culminating experience course, you will work one-on-one with an instructor to develop your final project. The project involves creating a hybrid score for a film provided by the instructor or sourced by you with the instructor’s permission. The instructor acts as the director and requests revisions and re-writes, emulating the professional world. You will use all the skills developed in the rest of your coursework to create a successful score.
