One More 'Skyfall' Video Blog on Creating Thomas Newman's Score
"There's something about that tune is that is just classic and iconic." This may be one of the last video blogs we featured for James Bond's Skyfall, since it hits theaters around the world in just a few weeks. For those of you steering clear of any footage/spoilers, this has none. It focuses on composer Thomas Newman (Oscar nominated composer of American Beauty, Road to Perdition, Finding Nemo, Wall-E) and recording the new score for the film. Similar to Adele's excellent title track (listen here), Newman's score is refreshing and exciting, the perfect accompaniment to an otherwise fantastic new Bond film. Get a first listen below.
Here's the latest music/score video blog for Sam Mendes' Skyfall, in high def from YouTube:
