Students: Get Your Film Scored or Mixed

Hand Of A Pianist

Applications are now closed for the Fall 2016 Semester. Watch this space for Spring 2017 dates and deadlines!

CINE is thrilled to once again offer an extraordinary opportunity to film students, made possible by the Berklee College of Music’s Film Scoring Department: On a limited basis, CINE can pair student filmmakers with student composers and sound designers from Berklee, named the #2 music school in the entertainment industry by The Hollywood Reporter.

Filmmakers with a work-in-progress in all genres — animation, live action and documentary — are invited to apply to work with a Berklee composer and/or sound designer/editor.

There is no charge to apply or participate, but there are a limited number of spots available, with preference given to filmmakers who require both music and sound. Films will be accepted on a rolling basis and you will be contacted within one week of submission. The applications will close as soon as all spots are filled (no later than September 23, 2016).

Please note the dates and deadlines for the Fall 2016 semester:

  • Friday, September 23, 2016: Application deadline.

  • Week of September 26-30 (Berklee Week 4): Student composers send demos to student filmmakers.

  • Tuesday, October 11 (Berklee Week 6): Composers are “hired”, sound designers are assigned.

  • Monday, October 31 (Berklee Week 9): Picture locked, spotting session completed, contract signed, quicktime workprint delivered to composer and/or audio elements delivered to sound designer. You must have your workprint ready by this date to participate.

  • Friday, December 16 (Berklee Finals Week): Final music/sound delivered to filmmaker.
