Score: A Film Music Documentary Trailer

“The score is the heartbeat of the film.” So says James Cameron, an Oscar-winning director who has worked with some of the greatest composers in film history, and he couldn’t be more right. A big part of why we remember the most iconic scenes in cinema is because of the score that plays along with the visuals. Some movies are even known without visuals simply because they have a theme that is so unforgettable.

A new film called Score: A Film Music Documentary from director Matt Schrader dives into what makes motion pictures scores so powerful by speaking to the best composers in the business. John Williams, Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer, Jerry Goldsmith, Howard Shore, Alexandre Desplat and more all talk about motion picture scores, how important they are to the medium, and how much they love the work of their colleagues.
