Geoff Zanelli is one of today's most promising talents in the film music world. Working alongside Hans Zimmer at RCP he has been living the success story of separating himself as one of the premiere voices in the score industry. Geoff is an Emmy Award winning composer who has done a number of solo projects such as Outlander, Disturbia, Hitman, Ghost Town & House Of D. He also scored the miniseries Into The West, which won him his Emmy. I recently got the chance to ask Geoff some questions about his work on the highly anticipated HBO miniseries The Pacific. He along with Blake Neely and Hans Zimmer were in charge of the emotional backbone of the series also known as the score.
"I am not an artist" - An Interview with Hans Zimmer
A conversation with a composer like Hans Zimmer is a dream come true for every film music critic. I finally made it, even if my patience was tested due to mails asking me to postpone the interview even a bit further. You can forgive somebody who is so busy with his projects and preparations for the Oscar night. Especially that finally, a few nights before the Academy Awards, it was done. Internet connection let me forget that the composer resides and works in California, thousand miles from me in Poland. For almost an hour I could talk with Hans about his old and new projects, what he thinks of Christopher Nolan and other directors and what he thinks of the art of film music. You can read about all of this in this interview.
