THE 2013 NYU/ASCAP FOUNDATION FILM SCORING WORKSHOP in MEMORY of BUDDY BAKER
June 5-14, 2013 at NYU Steinhardt
Deadline for applications: April 12, 2013
Following in the vision and legacy of Buddy Baker, the 2012 NYU/ASCAP Foundation Film Scoring Workshop will continue to present the rich traditions of classical Hollywood film scoring. Dedicated sessions will address the creative process, orchestrating, conducting, and MIDI mockups. Participants will choose a clip from a selection of rough cuts, representing a variety of genres . The workshop will culminate in a full day of recording sessions, featuring New York City's top-tier studio musicians. Previous workshops included players from the NY Philharmonic and The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, and have been recorded by such top flight engineers as Paul Geluso and Lawrence Manchester.
Participants leave with a professional digital demo of their work. The workshop continues to be taught by some of today's most creative composers and orchestrators, this year spearheaded by "24" composer SEAN CALLERY. Summer core faculty member MARK SNOW ("X-Files") and NYU Film Scoring faculty member IRA NEWBORN ("Naked Gun") will also be featured. Other participating NYU faculty include SONNY KOMPANEK, MIKE PATTERSON, DAVID SPEAR, MARK SUOZZO, TIM STARNES, and RON SADOFF. The ASCAP Foundation and the Society of Composers and Lyricists, with SCL President and veteran composer DAN FOLIART ("7th Heaven"), will headline additional presentations on the art and business of film music.
For the benefit of auditors and participants, all faculty and participant interactions, lectures, and comments will be amplified and projected on to large screens. Auditors will attend all proceedings, including the live recording sessions and critiques. All sessions of the workshop will take place in the Frederick Loewe Theatre at New York University's Steinhardt School. For further information, contact Ron Sadoff at 212-998-5779 / firstname.lastname@example.org.

A great benefit of the 2013 NYU/ASCAP Foundation Film Scoring Workshop is the chance for students to experience life in New York City and Greenwich Village. The cost of living in the city is high. The activities fee students pay for the workshop covers only the primary cost of participating in the evening and weekend events and does not cover personal expenses. Students should budget for enough money to last the entire time they will be participating in the workshop. Students are encouraged to discuss expenses and decide upon a budget with their families prior to arriving in New York City.
WE WILL MISS BUDDY BAKER
Buddy Baker, composer, educator, "Disney Legend," and our friend, passed away on July 26th, 2002 at the age of 84. Less than two months after driving cross-country, and immersing himself in every aspect of a robust, two weeks of film scoring workshops at NYU, Buddy's passing both surprised and saddened us. In addition to the respect we felt toward Buddy's compositional prowess, we remember his unassuming and easy-going demeanor, which invited all to readily approach him. We'll long for his infectious enthusiasm toward composing music for pictures. His program and faculty at USC's Thornton School of Music thrived on his steadfast dedication and enormous energy. The academy will remember him as a pioneer in his defining and promoting the art of composing music to moving image. Present and future generations will bask in the eloquence and imagination of his Disney themes and scores spanning nearly four decades, ranging from "Winnie the Pooh" to "The Fox and The Hound," "Napoleon and Samantha," and music for Disney theme parks worldwide.
From 1998-2002, I was lucky enough to spend a great deal of time with Buddy in developing our NYU Film Scoring Workshops. His endless quest for effective ways to structure his teaching and our workshops' materials was a source of inspiration and a catalyst for creative work. Because Buddy's spirit will continue to inspire us, our workshop will be renamed only slightly: "NYU/ASCAP Foundation Film Scoring Workshops in Memory of Buddy Baker"
