Movies can create impactful and emotional experiences for viewers, many associated with social change. Actors and directors are often at the forefront of the movie industry and movie experiences. What lies behind the scenes are the score producers. The score, or the music, brings motion pictures to life, adding depth and detail. Various score techniques create different environments and experiences for viewers. This research project will explore which film score techniques have the potential to motivate viewers to take social justice action. Scoring techniques that inspire action by viewers will be identified through interviewing score producers for future reference for inexperienced score producers.
