NYU/ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop

This summer, I was fortunate enough to have taken part in the NYU/ASCAP film scoring workshop. I met a lot of great people from all over the world and was able to learn from some of the great composers in the industry, even taking a "selfie" with Mark Snow, composer of X-files. For the workshop, we were given 6 2-minute clips to choose from and got to record our music with a small orchestra of some of New York's finest musicians. For my clip, I chose the opening titles of the movie Serenity.

Since the clip contains the Universal logo, I wanted to try and utilize the Universal theme in a different way than how one typically hears it in the opening of a movie. In fact, the entire first half of the cue is based solely on the Universal theme up to the key change.
