Received an Oscar nomination for Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, Original Score, for “The Passion of the Christ.” Other credits include the “Sin City” and “Spy Kids” franchises as well as “Elf” and “Bruce Almighty.”
The director I love…
– knows his movie far better than I do. There are moments that I didn’t see and it’s a nice surprise where I didn’t notice some subplot. It opens up other doors to go down musically.
It drives me crazy when a director…
– doesn’t like certain woodwind instruments, like the oboe. It’s like saying to a painter, “I don’t like the color blue.”
– loves a piece of music one day and second-guesses it the next. Once they approve it, you hope they stand by it.
– calls a meeting before 9 a.m. I hate the early ones.
