It's hard to distinguish yourself as a film composer, especially in comedies. Just ask Theodore Shapiro, the Washington D.C. native who made a name for himself scoring high profile comedy films. In the early 1990s, Teddy Shapiro began composing the music for the MTV sketch comedy show "The State," which lasted three seasons (from 1993 to 1995). With indie cred in tow, Shapiro scored many more comedies through the 2000s, including the Will Ferrell hit "Old School" in 2003. He scored the 2006 film adaptation of "The Devil Wears Prada" and re-teamed with Ferrell for the sports satires "Blades of Glory" (figure skating) and "Semi-Pro" (basketball) in 2007 and 2008, respectively. Those comedies helped garner Shapiro a pair of BMI Film Music awards. In 2008, Ben Stiller collaborated with the musician for the score of his action-comedy "Tropic Thunder." The result? Theodore's eighth BMI Film Music Award.
