Preview by Jack Foley

FROM the spine-tingling sounds of the Star Wars theme to the terror-inducing Jaws signature piece via the instantly nostalgia inducing sounds of E.T., Close Encounters of the Third Kind and I>Raiders of the Lost Ark, what is it about these scores that make a film and a lifetime of memories?

Now, a fascinating new feature documentary, Score: A Film Music Documentary, from director Matt Schrader, featuring the work of some 60 plus of Hollywood’s elite composers, takes a privileged look inside the musical challenges and creative secrecy of the world’s most international music genre: the film score.

It arrives on DVD and VOD, complete with a slew of special features on April 2, 2018 from Dogwoof.

A film composer is a musical scientist of sorts, and the influence they have to complement a film and garner powerful and lasting reactions from global audiences can be a daunting task to take on. Score: A Film Music Documentary contains interviews with dozens of inspiring film composers including Hans Zimmer, John Williams, Danny Elfman, Trent Reznor, Quincy Jones, Rachel Portman, Bear McCreary, alongside director James Cameron.

They discuss their craft and the magic of film music while exploring the making of the most iconic and beloved scores in history including James Bond, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Pirates of the Caribbean, Titanic, The Social Network, Mad Max: Fury Road, Psycho and more.
