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 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 2 April 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.
