Music Scoring for Visual Media

Feature your work

Each year, there are numerous opportunities to present your work.

The annual Double Exposure collaboration teams Jacobs School composers with IU Media School filmmakers for a live score-to-picture performance, with Jacobs student musicians, at the Indiana University Cinema.

The winner of the annual Jon Vickers Film Scoring Award competition receives a commission to score a full-length silent film that culminates with a live-to-picture performance at the IU Cinema.

Project Involve is a special summer collaboration where six scoring composers spend three weeks in Los Angeles writing original scores for six emerging LA filmmakers. It includes a major premiere at the ArcLight Hollywood multiplex, while HBO retains the rights to air the final films.

Live recording sessions of the best scenes written during your scoring-to-picture courses will enable you to have a robust portfolio, strengthening your unique preparation for a career pursuing your passion.
