The first interactive site dedicated to film music
Golden Globe nominated composer Christopher Young discusses music
scores of The Priest, The Black Tulip, and Drag Me to Hell
Film composers are increasingly receiving the spotlight, and now fans have the
opportunity to interact with them live. Film Music Live, the first interactive video site
dedicated to the sounds of film, premiers with Christopher Young July 28 at
5:30-6:30 pm PST.
Emmy nominated composer (Norma Jean and Marilyn, Last Flight
Out) Young received both Golden Globe® and Broadcast Film Critics Association
Award nominations for The Shipping News. Young created memorable action scores
for two Marvel movies: Spiderman 3 and Ghostrider. His chilling score for The Grudge
propelled the film to a mega hit, and his score to Drag Me To Hell has made several
film music site listings as Best Score for 2009. These scores are among the nearly
100 films that embody the work of this prolific composer. The video broadcast will
stream on the Film Music Live channel from the website Justin.TV.
Two years ago, Young received BMI’s highest honor, The Richard Kirk Career
Achievement Award. In addition to his busy film-composing schedule, Young also
teaches aspiring film composers at the University of Southern California (USC),
wherewith he bought a house that offers free residency to young composers
because he never forgot his own personal trials.
