Watch An Hour And A Half Conversation Between JJ Abrams And Michael Giacchino

In June 2011, I attended a discussion between filmmaker JJ Abrams (Lost, Alias, Super 8, Star Trek, MI3) and composer Michael Giacchino (Lost, Up, The Incredibles, Star Trek, Let Me In) at the Hammer Museum. The event was actually pretty cool, part of the museum's "Hammer Conversation" series which pairs two artists together to talk to each other about their careers and art without a moderator. The hour and a half long conversation is interesting and entertaining, and brings new light to the collaboration of these two filmmakers. Watch the video embedded after the jump.


J.J. Abrams is the Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning co-creator of the television series Lost. The producer, screenwriter, director, and composer is also creator of the TV series Alias, co-creator of Felicity and Fringe, and director of several films, including Mission: Impossible III (2006) and Star Trek (2009). Michael Giacchino is the composer of scores for the films Up, Ratatouille, and the television series Lost, among many others. He has received numerous awards for his work, including an Emmy, multiple Grammys, and an Academy Award. (Run Time 1 hour, 26 min.)
