Interview - Maciej Zielinski : Discover a great movie composer

  • Par Mulder, Los Angeles, le 26 février 2018

    Q : Hello Maciej, please can you make a short presentation about your background before becoming a composer? Maciej Zielinski : hello, It is hard to talk about my background “before becoming a composer” as I started to compose very early, even before primary music school. At the beginning I was improvising, trying to craft some melodies, add some simple harmonies on the piano. My father - Andrzej “Fats” Zielinski - was a famous jazz drummer in Poland. My family house was always full of famous Polish musicians. Some of them got international recognition, including Basia (Trzetrzelewska), Ula Dudziak, and Michal Urbaniak. My father used to record music to Roman Polanski’s early movies. He worked with Krzysztof Komeda the...

Interview - Ben Lovett’s Interview on The ritual and other score movies

  • Par Mulder, Los Angeles, le 20 février 2018

    Q: Please can you make a short presentation about your background before becoming a composer ? Ben Lovett : I grew up in a small town and never had any musical training when I was young. I taught myself how to play the guitar in high school by listening to punk rock records, then dove into learning about recording techniques, built a little studio and started recording bands in Athens, Georgia when I was in college. I met a lot of creative and inspired young artists there and wound up scoring a film when I was about 19 even though I had no clue what I was doing. The people making the movie didn’t know what they were doing either though so it worked out fine and was a great experience. That was 20 years ago and though my life and career have taken...

Interview - Sean Meehan for his short movie Lost Face

  • Par Nikayaya, San Diego, le 21 décembre 2017

    Q: Thank you Sean, for taking time to answer questions on your critically appraised short film Lost Face. I recently had the honor of screening it at The San Diego Film Festival and was curious what drew you to the lesser known Jack London tale? Sean Meehan : My favourite writers have that rare ability to tell stories that are outwardly simple yet tremendously layered. Jack London’s story feels like a straightforward tale about a man trying to cheat death, but there’s so much more going on in terms of the power dynamics, shifting loyalties, conflicting personal motivations, the tragic history of the Americas, and there’s even a dark, subtle humour – which I love. Gallows humour appeals to me for some reason.
