Ep 34: Edgar Wright

To be honest the man needs no introduction, especially when it comes to films and music, he’s a bit of a master. This is Part 1 of Edgar Wright, a retrospect as such. Part 2 will come later this year when he releases his new film Baby Driver. In the meantime sit back and enjoy. It’s a brilliant ride.

Episode 33: Bill Condon

What a fantastic texture of films Bill Condon has worked on over the years. He had a very clear and specific vision of how he wanted to approach remaking the Disney Classic, Beauty And The Beast. That involved bringing the original composer along for the ride. Having worked on everything from Dream Girls to Gods and Monsters, Bill also delves into his back catalogue to share his musical experiences.

Episode 32: Jordan Vogt-Roberts

I remember watching The Kings of Summer when it was released a few years back and feeling excited and thoroughly entertained by what Jordan Vogt-Roberts had created, but also what the future held for him as a film maker and me a film fan. Wait till you see what he has done with Kong! It’s like being on a roller coaster and in his own words, as ‘weird’ as he could make it. I hope this is the first of many of our chats.

Each and every week I learn something new from my chats for Soundtracking, it fuels my passion and love of film. It was wonderful to hear Jordan Vogt-Roberts enthusiasm for South Korean Cinema when I spoke to him about his new film Skull Kong Island.

Episode 31: James Mangold

It became pretty evident early on that this was going to be a fun and interesting chat. James Mangold exuded enthusiasm and wonderful stories as we sat down to talk movies and music. Walk The Line, Cop Land, Girl Interrupted and now Logan, just a snapshot of some of his incredibly diverse work. I hope you enjoy listening to James as much as I did chatting to him

Episode 30: Gore Verbinski

He’s ranked as the 10th highest grossing director in the world, he’s also collaborated with some mighty fine composers. Gore Verbinski is not short of something to say about music, film and composers. As his new film A Cure For Wellness is released in cinemas, I had the pleasure of spending time with Gore to sit down and chat film and music.

Episode 29: Ang Lee

Oscar winning director Ang Lee has the most bombastic body of work and it’s almost impossible to predict what he will do next. It was a total joy to sit down and chat with him about his work and the place that music has in it. His infectious enthusiasm is quite exceptional and his love of music obvious.
