Composer Interview: Henry Jackman (June 14, 2013)

September 14, 2017

The fantastic Henry Jackman takes some time to chat about his busy slate of projects. We discuss his scores to This Is The End, Turbo, Captain Phillips and even Captain America: The Winter Solider. Henry shares his approach to scoring an apocalyptic comedy and playing as straight as he can with a huge orchestral and choral approach. For Turbo he shares a lot about the animation process and reflects about his work on Wreck-It Ralph as well. We then delve into working with Paul Greengrass on Captain Phillips and how he completely had to switch gears for that score. Henry then shares what his views and what his approach will be for the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Solider. We finish up by talking about following in Alan Silvestri's footsteps, which Henry has done on two franchises now. Also how he discovered Alan's music to Predator by sneaking out to watch a VHS copy when he was in boarding school in England. Henry is always a complete joy to talk with and listen to. Just like our last chat this interview is extremely fun and very in-depth, please enjoy!
