UNLV School of Music: Film Series
The School of Music and its seminar on Hollywood Film Music would like to invite you to a weekly film series. Each week, we will screen a different film that has been selected particularly because it bears an interesting relation to (or contradicts) classic Hollywood scoring practices. The screenings will be prefaced by 10-15 minute presentations about the films’ scores.
Screenings will be held in HFA 224 beginning at 7:15 p.m. A schedule (subject to change) follows:
- Sept. 15: Captain Blood (1935; score by Erich Wolfgang Korngold)
- Sept. 22: Birth of a Nation (1915; score by Joseph Carl Breil)
- Sept. 29: Psycho (1960; score by Bernard Herrmann)
- Oct. 6: Vertigo (1958; score by Bernard Herrmann)
- Oct. 13: Easy Rider (1969; Mike Deasy, music department)
- Oct. 20: Moulin Rouge (2001; music by Craig Armstrong et al)
- Oct. 27: Alexander Nevsky (1938; score by Sergei Prokofiev)
- Nov. 3: Prénom Carmen (1983; François Musy, sound) [or maybe Une femme est une femme, 1961; music by Michel Legrand]
- Nov. 10: Die Hard (1988; score by Michael Kamen)
This event is free and open to the public, so please spread the word and invite others to enjoy a different film each week.
Feel free, also, to forward and distribute the lovely attached flyer designed by Kevin Eberle.
