Film scores move the story along, highlighting the ups and downs and plot twists and moments of reunion and the happily ever after and the epic battle scenes. Scores are there to emphasize the moment a character realizes they’re in love and the moment when a character realises they’ve been betrayed. It’s all part of the story.
Jay Weigel, instructor of Loyola’s film score class, wants to use this class to change the entire outlook of a career as a composer. Students can be more than just musicians, they become storytellers.
