In the Behind the Score series we explore and analyze various film scores from a wide range of composers including Hans Zimmer, Rupert Gregson-Williams, James Horner and more. In this BTS event we explore Hans Zimmer’s score for Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel.
The year is 2015. Two young Scandinavian creators & entrepreneurs Arn Andersson & Walid Feghali meet at a composer meet-up in Berlin. Both share the same passion for travelling the world while creating music and art, and teaching others to do the same. They also share their frustrations about the outdated creative industry…. how much time and money they’ve both spent learning how to turn their passion into a sustainable career, and how they dream of offering a modern day creative platform that doesn’t just teach text book theory.
It was never supposed to be easy, to create the circumstances in life where your music could be heard, celebrated, and mythicized by millions of movie-goers around the globe.

First impressions are impulsive, decisive, unfair perhaps, yet crucial to the day-to-day decision-making that occurs behind closed doors for independent producers and directors. When they’ve set out to find a new composer, they’ve got to quickly sort from hundreds of options and create a shortlist of 4 or 5 candidates whose “sound” could be ideal for their project (that is if they don’t already have someone in mind from a previous collaboration).
