The Learning Center hosted an unprecedented event, drawing in Boston area filmmakers, including film students from Boston University and Emerson College, as well as a flock of Berklee composers, sound designers and audio engineers. Offering 3 presentations on film music, sound design, and post-production mixing, the Learning Center bolstered the opportunity for Berklee students to provide filmmakers with all audio aspects for their productions. After the presentations, students and filmmakers mingled, sharing ideas and demos, while the Learning Center provided light refreshments. The second half of the evening was the Film Scoring competition finalist showcase, where we were treated to six equally effective, but entirely different musical interpretations to The Learning Center Productions' film Paranoia. In attendance were panel judges Andrea Pejrolo, composer and contemporary writing and production faculty, and last year's Film Scoring contest winner, student Chris Lane. The other panel members were film scoring faculty Richard Davis, and contemporary writing and production faculty Bill Elliot. Pablo Vargas announced the winners and presented the awards. In third place landed Christopher Carmichael, runner-up, Stephanie Olmanni, and the grand prize winner was Jeehoon Chong.
