Sheldon Mirowitz, Professor of Film Scoring at Berklee College of Music and his students created a new score of Harold Lloyd’s 1923 silent film "Safety Last!"

Today, a 90-minute movie has about 85 minutes of music. 20 years ago it was more like 35. The grammar and logic of how movies are made has much changed in 20 years.

Mirowitz talks with Mindy Todd on The Point about the project, and on being creative, open to new experiences, new styles and new tools.
