With this paper, I finish an intense year of learning and working in one of the best programs in the world that exists to study scoring for cinema, television and video games. Berklee College of music has given me the opportunity to meet and work with many of the greatest composers on the current scene. Thanks to the intensity of the course, the facilities used both on and off campus, and the excellent work of the faculty, I have learnt and mastered various skills I couldn't even imagine one year ago, before Berklee. As a culminating experience of the program, we have the wonderful opportunity to record our composition in one of the best recording studios in the world, which will allow all of us to meet again in London and conduct one of the best orchestras performing our work. In this paper, I will explain all of the steps that I have followed for the creation of the piece and the project. I will talk about my musical background, my year of experience at Berklee, and how both have helped me in order to create and fulfill this experience. Thanks to my perseverance in composing for an original short film, I met “Dennis”, and I am extremely happy to have been able to compose the music for this fantastic animated short film. This is undoubtedly the best way to end my year, with what has certainly been an experience at a personal, academic and professional level.
