Free Scores for Student Films

Get the most out of your movie with a custom musical score!

We are looking for student made films of any genre or length to provide original music to through the Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Program.  This service, which includes a score recorded by professional musicians in a world class recording studio, is offered for free to student filmmakers.  It is an opportunity for our Masters students to use the skills learned during our program and collaborate with directors to produce custom music for any style of film.  The music is licensed to the filmmakers free of charge for use within their films in any and all media and for any promotional use (trailers, etc.) in connection to those films.


The submitted films must have been made as part of an educational program.
