Composer Pablo Gomez Trujillo was named the 2011 BMI Film Scoring Scholarship recipient at the annual BMI Day at Berklee College of Music. Trujillo, a film scoring major, received the scholarship at a presentation at Berklee by BMI composer Alan Silvestri, in whose name this year’s scholarship is given; Doreen Ringer-Ross, BMI Vice President, Film/TV Relations; and Berklee Film Scoring Department Chair Dan Carlin also co-presented the award.
The BMI Film Scoring Scholarship is a yearly tuition scholarship awarded on the basis of compositional maturity and talent, as well as financial need. Each year, the scholarship is given in the name of a noted BMI composer. Silvestri was this year’s honored composer, he also taught a master class on film scoring as part of the ceremony.
