Last month we spent time reviewing the Golden Globe nominated film scores, at the time I had only listened to one of them going in so it was a nice way to start (Film Score Friday: 'The Adventures of Tintin' by John Williams

Rory Hopke's insight:

I agree with the reviewer, John Williams is very much still in the game and this score really shows it

Danny Elfman: 'My Constant Worry Is That I'll Run Out of Ideas' (Q&A)

Danny Elfman: 'My Constant Worry Is That I'll Run Out of Ideas' (Q&A) | Film Scores | Scoop.it

Composer Danny Elfman has won a Grammy and an Emmy and earned four Oscar nominations with almost 80 film scores. On Oct. 25 at the W Hotel in Hollywood, THR film critic Todd McCarthy will present Elfman, 59, with the Billboard/Hollywood Reporter Maestro Award, previously won by Alan Menken, Thomas Newman, Hans Zimmer and Marvin Hamlisch. McCarthy will host a Q&A with Elfman and Sacha Gervasi, director of the Elfman-scored Hitchcock, due out in November. THR asked Elfman to reflect on his 27-year career and his biggest year, 2012.

Rory Hopke's insight:

Danny Elfman has seen a lot of success over the years his name has been attached to some very successful projects.  I personally hope he never runs out of ideas.

Hans Zimmer Talks Scoring 'The Dark Knight Rises' & Says He's Not Confirmed For 'Man Of Steel' | Filmmakers, Film Industry, Film Festivals, Awards & Movie Reviews | indieWIRE

Hans Zimmer Talks Scoring 'The Dark Knight Rises' & Says He's Not Confirmed For 'Man Of Steel' | Filmmakers, Film Industry, Film Festivals, Awards & Movie Reviews | indieWIRE | Film Scores | Scoop.it

During his 27 years in Hollywood, Hans Zimmer has produced hundreds of film scores, sometimes five or six in the span of one year. But what’s interesting about his work is that it’s become more eclectic and undefinable, not less, as his career has progressed. Listening to his more recent work on films such as “Inception” and “Sherlock Holmes,” there are few traces of the synthesizer-heavy material he made his name with in the 1980s, and remarkably, few similarities even between those two recent examples. But even with expectations for his score for “The Dark Knight Rises” looming large over his work for the forthcoming film, Zimmer told The Playlist that he’s not sure how much the score will share in common with its atonal predecessor.

Rory Hopke's insight:

Zimmer's "experiment" turned into one of my favorite movie soundtracks. So, I'd say it was a success

For film scores, composers create a world, note by note

For film scores, composers create a world, note by note | Film Scores | Scoop.it

A film's music is often considered a character itself, and this season the roles composers have to play aren't getting any easier. Talking about love between the emotionally unstable is one thing, but how, for instance, does that sound? Or when a character speaks to God, should God answer back with silence or an orchestra? And what of a period piece that isn't a period piece, or a piece that's six periods at once? Here we offer a look at just a handful of 2012's notable film scores.

Rory Hopke's insight:

The complexities that must go into a film score are impressive.  The article also talks about "The Life of Pi", which had an amazing score.

In this article, it talks about how important a score is to a film. It also dives into some of the best film scores from 2012 and has interviews from the creators of these magnificent film scores.

 

I agree with this article as I believe a film score can make a film way more enjoyable and lovable. It puts you into the film.

Game soundtracks: the new film scores? | Den of Geek

Game soundtracks: the new film scores? | Den of Geek | Film Scores | Scoop.it

We might now retrospectively qualify gaming soundtracks, but until recently they haven't objectively been as big a deal in gaming as outside of it. After all, if people relate music to anything other than the artist, traditionally it's to film. This is changing, and fast. Perhaps it's because maturity has now spread to all corners of the polygonal art that is videogame production. Perhaps it's because developers now give equal gravity to all possible aspects of a virtual experience. Or perhaps it's because teenagers like me grew up and, remembering those film experiences with perfectly pitched soundtracks, want to curate full-blooded experiences on their own terms.

Rory Hopke's insight:

Pro: I imagine the scoring process of a video game is just as intense as that of a film the fact that these soundtracks are gaining more recognition is awesome

 

Con: I am not entralled by the use of licensed music in certain types of video games, most games don't benefit by its use
