Composers Scale Up Scores for Epic Projects

10 December 2014 11:07 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Back in the days of “Ben-Hur” and “The Ten Commandments,” a widescreen epic was expected to be accompanied by a lavish symphonic score and, just as often, a heavenly choir.

Is that still true for today’s epics, with all the trappings from extensive CGI and 3D to 7.1 Dolby Atmos Surround sound?

Yes, for the most part, say the composers of historical, religious and fantasy films including “Noah,” “Exodus: Gods and Kings” and “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” along with the author of a new book on the subject.

“Big, massed orchestral sounds, alternating with very nuanced, soloistic use of strings and winds. That’s what comes into my ear when I think of the epic style,” says Stephen C. Meyer, author of “Epic Sound: Music in Postwar Hollywood Biblical Films,” which examines the music of such classics as “Quo Vadis,” “The Robe” and “Ben-Hur.”

Tech Support: Can Alexandre Desplat land three Oscar nominations for original score?

4 December 2014 2:36 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Academy Award for Best Original Score is one of the categories I find most interesting and most frustrating. First, the good: I love the awarding of film music, which can immeasurably improve the experience of a film and can become iconic in its own right. There is also much about the music branch that I love, particularly its international flavor, both in terms of the composers cited and the types of music rewarded. Moreover, while the category tends to favor Best Picture nominees and epic movies, it is not excessively exclusionary in this respect. But that love of epics can sometimes lead to simply rewarding "most music." More importantly, this branch is infamously insular. Unless a composer is aboard a major Best Picture contender or has otherwise composed a simply iconic score, it is unusual to earn a first nomination. And even those features are not always enough for first-timers. »

Darren Aronofsky Salutes His ‘Noah’ Production Artisans

12 November 2014 12:28 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Most awards buzz centers on fourth-quarter films, but many earlier 2014 works deserve to be remembered. For example, “Noah.” Paramount debuted the film back in March, but long after the release, filmmaker Darren Aronofsky was enthused about talking with his collaborators on the film, which scored an impressive $362 million globally.

Cinematography, Matthew Libatique

We wanted to reinvent the biblical epic. The edict was no robes, no long beards, no sandals, no Middle East deserts. The Noah story is prehistorical. Everything was new, everything was a miracle — like the first rainbow. So we wanted to create a universe unto itself. We did a lot of research, but much of the look and lighting was dictated by Iceland. We chose Iceland because it’s the newest piece of earth on the planet. We wanted to go to the true primordial place on the map. The lighting there is unique and Matty had huge challenges, »

I'm convinced we could bring you a full three hours every day of movie news and nonsense, but instead we only have time for a couple hours a week as today's episode kicks off with a Seattle bike riders rant preceded by a look through the Magnolia Pictures award season screeners and followed by a look at Interstellar's box office performance and the nature of complex blockbusters in general and then some games in what felt like a very short episode, but still ended up being 52 minutes long.
