  1. Someone knows Czech movie The Elementary School? The film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1991. In this movie is a scene where boys ride on bicycles and playing music variation on John WIlliams. E.T. Extra Terrestrial was a temp track. I think.

    R.I.P. John Hurt

    Gutted about this news. I only just watched Snowpiercer last night and was wondering how old he was/if he had any new films on the horizon. Just a brilliant actor who elevated every film he starred in. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4166046/Actor-John-Hurt-dies-cancer-aged-77.html
  3. I've been a lurker on this forum for a little while now and I'm amazed at all the wealth of the knowledge here! I'm sure many people here agree that engineer Bruce Botnick is one of the best, if not the best recording engineer for film scores. His work on Jerry Goldsmith's scores, Alan Menken's work, and especially my favorite from the maestro himself E.T., sound so clear and warm even compared to today's modern film recordings. I've always wondered: How does he achieve this? What is his "secret" if there's even one?

    A Great Theme Mix!!

    Hello friends, I just wanted to bring you a very good video! This is a compilation of the best songs of John Williams, really good! I did it as a tribute to his work. I hope you enjoy! Thanks a lot! PD: I'm Spanish and my English is very bad, sorry
  5. Hi, I'm new here so please forgive me if I do anything stupid. My name is Greg as you can see and I really love John Williams music. I would very much love to get his autograph. I'm far from rich, but it means enough to me that I would fly somewhere to get it. I live in Seattle. I'm thinking of flying to L.A. as I see he is doing some concerts at the Hollywood bowl. Does anyone know what my odds are of getting him to sign if I wait hours before the show? Or is there a better place? Thank you so much for your help it means a lot. Greg

    Star Wars Flash Mob

    Not sure if this has been posted previously, but, it convinces me that I'm moving to Europe. BKL: Packing as we speak.

    John Williams Action Music

    Anyone else here a fan of his action/chase music? I love the musical complexity. So I'm trying to expand my John Williams library, so does anyone have any awesome selections of Williams Action cues?
  8. This is a new song I created, for a "planned" movie. It plays as Alex Harper (a character based on Tintin) walks out of class clutching one-half of the treasure map that leads to a school treasure. However, Alex and his friends, Cassandra and Archie (archibald Haddock, anyone?) run into Allan, the school bully. They start arguing, and during that, Alex drops the paper, which is promptly picked up by an elementary student who runs off with it. Shortly, Alex and Allan find that it's missing and chase after the kid into the school fare. After Alex catches the kid in slow motion (Pursuit of the Falcon), the ruckus they have caused has caught the attention of Mr. Kaufman, the strictest teacher on campus, who confiscates the paper. This song is heavily influenced by Williams, and it was my first use of syncopation. It does sound very random at times, but that's because I was trying to emulate Williams' modern action cues. There are a few recurring motifs: Allan's Theme (Sounds a bit like the secondary motif in Flight of the Bumblebee) The Treasure Theme (Sounds like Zimmer's "Mermaids" combined with the Unicorn motif) Trio Fanfare, to represent Alex, Cassandra, and Archie (sounds a bit like the trio fanfare in "Pursuit of the Falcon") The Pursuit Motif (a syncopated group of notes that appears throughout the score) The songs that I received the most influence from are "Flight from Peru" (the beginning pizzicato) "The Basket Game" "The Snake Pit" "Flight to Bagghar" Enjoy!
