With 2013 wrapping up, I thought I'd put together a list of my favorite (mainstream) film scores from the past year. I doubt you'll be surprised by the list, but feel free to let me know if I missed something!
Curtis Roush has been working as a music editor on many of the movies we see on TV and in theaters for over 30 years, some of his more recent notable projects include The Hunger Games, Alice in Wonderland and X-Men, just to name a few. He's also a graduate of the Berklee College of Music ('80) with a B.M. in Film Scoring.

A few years ago, Pakk Hui visited one of my film scoring classes at Berklee. Being an alumnus himself, our class got to hear about his experiences after his time at Berklee.

Pakk is a highly talented film composer and musician who has had the opportunity to work with such famed names as W.G. Snuffy Walden, Alf Clausen and Brian Tyler.
