    Geoff Zanelli | Composer: Leo

    Geoff Zanelli | Composer: Leo

    Emmy-winning Composer Geoff Zanelli sits down for a brand new Film.Music.Media conversation!
    It’s always a blast having Geoff return to discuss his latest projects, and this conversation is no different!
    We dive right into Leo, the new animated feature starring Adam Sandler from co-directors Robert Marianetti, Robert Smigel and David Wachenheim. Geoff takes us into his process and how the score had to work with the original songs that were part of the film. We discuss finding the right tone and how to navigate between comedy and sentimentality within scores for family films.
    Geoff also gives us a look into the score for 10 Lives, the animated feature recently premiered at Sundance and sees Geoff co-scoring with Tome Howe.
    Lastly, we get an amazing update on the immensely anticipated Star Citizen which Geoff has been working on during it’s lengthy development as the game tackles an unprecedented approach to its production through crowdfunding, conventions and building a whole community surrounding it.

    David Metzger | Composer: Wish

    David Metzger | Composer: Wish

    Composer David Metzger sits down for a brand new Film.Music.Media conversation!
    Dave is an industry legend who has built an incredible body of work as a composer, orchestrator and arranger. Besides his incredible body of work as a composer, he's also been composers' and songwriters' secret weapon when it comes to orchestration and arranging.
    Composers like Mark Mancina, John Powell and Henry Jackman have relied on Dave's skills to bring their music to life. And without Dave, the songs of Frozen, Moana, Spirited and Disenchanted wouldn't have the orchestral colors that they do.
    We dive into Dave's gorgeous score to Disney's Wish, and how he approached scoring his first feature since Brother Bear 2. Learn how Dave got hired on the project, and how he approached bringing the world of Wish to life.
    Dave also shares his path to becoming a composer, and how the biggest breaks in his career came when he was ready to give up hope. We talk about his big break working on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, how he formed a lasting creative relationship with Mark Mancina to become an essential part of his team, and much more!

    Christopher Lennertz & Matt Bowen | Gen V

    Christopher Lennertz & Matt Bowen | Gen V

    Co-composers Christopher Lennertz and Matt Bowen sit down for a brand new Film.Music.Media conversation!
    For this conversation we are spotlighting the collaborative process between co-composers, and what the process is for two composers to tackle a project together.
    Chris and Matt are unique in that Matt has worked for Chris as an additional composer on various projects and has spent a good part of his early career learning from Chris as part of his music team. For Gen V, Chris knew it was the perfect project for him and Matt to tackle as co-composers.
    You'll learn all about what Chris looks for when hiring people for his music team and how Matt used the early years working with Chris to learn techniques that he now applies to his solo projects. We also discuss the evolution of the score for The Boys and how that led to developing the sound for Gen V.

    Matt Novack & Dan Mirk | Miracle Workers

    Matt Novack & Dan Mirk | Miracle Workers

    Composer Matt Novack and Co-Showrunner Dan Mirk sit down for a brand new Film.Music.Media conversation!
    For this conversation we are spotlighting the collaborative process between the composer and the show runner on a TV series. Matt and Dan take us right into what the process is like between the composer and showrunner and how the two of them worked together across Miracle Workers: End Times.
    This conversation is incredibly insightful and unique given that Miracle Workers did not have a composer till this season when Matt was brought on. The prior seasons utilized library music, and Dan explains why they decided to bring in a composer to write an original score for this season of the anthology comedy series. Matt takes us into how he approached the tone and style for the season, and what elements informed his creative process.

Insightful

Very informative and insightful! The interviews and all access talks are great, much better than the score reviews on the website which basically are: if the composer has been interviewed by FMM then there literally won’t be a single negative comment about whatever score is being reviewed. BUT.. I would be the same way lol.. I listen to these all the time so keep up the good work!! :)
