Episode 60: Tomas Alfredson

I had the pleasure of doing a few interviews with Tomas a few years back, around the release of Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy. A fantastic cast have congregated for his latest film, The Snowman and that includes composer Marco Beltrami. Great to catch up with Tomas.

Episode 58: Denis Villneuve

It’s fair to say I am a huge fan of Denis, it’s also fair to say he was the prefect choice to direct Blade Runner 2049. Here we talk about his long standing relationship with composer Johan Johansson but also how for this particular project, it was necessary to turn to the expertise of Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch.

Episode 58: Nancy Myers

I still can’t quite believe we managed to get time with Nancy, who was here supporting the release of ‘Home Again,’ her daughters directorial debut. Having been oscar nominated for her screenwriting debut with Private Benjamin back in 1980, since then Nancy has been a pretty important part in Hollywood history. A dream to chat to, so warm, generous and fun. I hope you enjoy our chat.

For Philip Selway it’s always been a dream to compose a film soundtrack. The time has come with his debut for ‘Let Me Go.’ Thrilled that we got time with Philip to soundtracks and fitting it in with all his other work.

If every week involved getting to chat to Stanley Tucci, it would be a pretty sweet life. A man who can deliver on both sides of the camera he has most recently Writen and Directed, ‘Final Protrait,’ a film about a short period in the life of artists Alberto Giacommetti. We got to chat about his work both on and off screen for this latest episode of Soundtracking.

Episode 54: Steven Soderbergh

Thank god he thought again about retiring from making films. Steven Soderbergh is back with the brilliantly raucous and funny Logan Lucky. He’s made so many fantastic films and always with a level of social commentary, layers to peel back from your initial interpretation of uhis w movies. It was a real thrill to get time with Steven to take a step into his world and discuss music. I hope you enjoy.

Episode 53: Doug Liman

American Made is his new film which sees him team up, once again with Tom Cruise. I think they bring out the best in each other and I might have told him that during this interview. Doug Liman has been responsible for so many moments in my film watching history fro Swingers to Go, Bourne to more recently The Wall, he’s unpredictable and I think it’s fair to say a non-conformist. I see this as a snap shot into world, I hope there can be more.

Ep 51: David Lowery

It’s still very early days in the career of David Lowery but what he has done with his new film, “A Ghost Story,’ is to make one of my films of the year. A touching and powerful look at human existence and how that transcends time and emotions and relationships. And that’s not even the half of it. The score to this film is divine and I had a blast chatting to him about this and his other works.

Ep 50: Sarah Bridge

Happy 1st Birthday to us. It seems fitting that we explore the wonderful world of the music supervisor with the fabulous Sarah Bridge. She’s worked across a number of hugely impressive and creative productions and it was a total pleasure to pick her brain and find out more about a role that definitely doesn’t get the recognition or celebration it deserves. I hope you enjoy.

What a charming and infectious enthusiasm this man had. A total joy to talk to him about his new project but also hugely grateful for the insight he gave me into some of my favourite films. The Big Blue, Leon and recently Lucy. I hope you have as much fun listening to Luc as I had chatting to him.
