Film Summary:  Not all primers on the history of film making are as fascinating, fun and well paced as this one. SCORE: A Film Music Documentary takes you behind the scenes to visit film-scoring sessions in London and New York, sessions that are usually off-limits to camera crews.  You’ll see the excitement of participating composers, conductors and musicians while feeling like you paging through a scrapbook of your own film memories. Riveting, fascinating, entertaining, and informative – this is a documentary for everyone who has ever loved movies. Special Guest:  Maestro Delta David Gier, South Dakota Symphony.

Featuring composers and music from PSYCHO, VERTIGO, the BOND films, AN AMERICAN BEAUTY, THE SOCIAL NETWORK, GLADIATOR, DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY, and of course the great John Williams, whose work is part of the soundtrack of our lives with JAWS, STAR WARS, SUPERMAN, E.T., JURASSIC PARK, INDIANA JONES and HARRY POTTER.
