Wow lots of closeups of sheet music pages. Can anyone read the slates or cue names?

That was disappointing. I don't think we got anything new from Williams, and just a paraphrase of Spielberg's liner notes in the OST. Oh well.

Is this really all they have on the Blu-ray release about the score? If so then it is rather disappointing.

Ars superior est vita hominum.

 

"We pop out and come into the world and music is there. We didn't invent it - it's all organised in the atmosphere by divinity or whatever. It's a miracle." - John Williams-

 

I think music is a stream of some kind. It could be blood. It could be water. It could be ether. Whatever it is it seems to be a living, organic force that’s in motion, that serves humanity and is part of humanity and part of what describes us as humans. We sing, play, dance, all the things that we do. And there is a vibrant and great literature we have been given. ... As musicians, we join the stream. We swim in the stream with all the other millions of music makers. It’s a life force, a strong one, surrounding us and we are part of it. -John Williams-

There's also that short clip of the sound editor praising the score. You would think that for what Spielberg has called JW's best score in a long time, there would be more than a one minute interview.

Relax people,. it's just an excerpt. Williams always gets 7-8 minute long featurettes at Spielberg's personal request.

Hi,
I have it on good authority from the marketing people that this is the intro to a feature that runs about 10 minutes and there is a title plate that comes up on the last note of that intro. :sigh:

Could someone please upload the full featurette?

I do not have a Blu-ray player, nor can afford one, and therefore do not have War Horse on Blu-ray (I have the DVD).

The full score featurette will not be available on DVD, then?

Won't there be a 2-disc special edition DVD or something?

It IS not available on DVD.

As of right now, there is no 2-disc special edition DVD, not my knowledge anyway.

Will someone please answer my question?

Just keep demanding it. I'm sure someone will bow to your imperiousness eventually.

I am not demanding it.

I am only asking if someone could upload the full featurette. That is all.

Oh, and where do you go about calling me imperious,

when I am only asking in a common, calm, and polite way?

My Blu-Ray just came today, which is cool since the release date was this day and I have it already here in Finland.
Ordered it from England, very good service.

The sad thing is, there isn't any featurette about music... :crymore: :crymore: :crymore:

I couldn't find it. There was one 20 minutes "making of" feature and I "fast-forwarded" it and didn't see any
sign of that teaser.

Well I just came from work, little bit drunk, have to check it again...

Oh, where I bought the Blu Ray only had this one disc edition. I thought it had this featurette.
Obviously I was too careless and bought a wrong item.

Here's a comprehensive review of the War Horse Blu-ray:

http://www.blu-ray.c...y/35836/#Review

The JW featurette is this:

Editing & Scoring (HD, 9 minutes): Editor Michael Kahn and composer John Williams discuss their personal attachment to the story, their work on the film, and their ongoing collaboration with Spielberg (who weighs in on their efforts as well).

Why would Williams and Kahn have any personal attachment to the story?

I saw the film last night - rather impressive. Story moves rather slow, but I felt it worked. Ending is pure Spielberg sentimental mush, but effective mush.

Does the featurette have anything except Spielberg saying how amazing Williams' music is, and Williams saying how Spielberg didn't dislike any of his ideas?

These two gents badly need to be interviewed with some real questions.

I was only half paying attention when I watched it, and that was a month ago. But it had some nice scoring stage footage and raw recordings, like you hear the actual sound from the stage and not the finished track overlaid on the footage. Rehearsal with the strings on No Man's Land. It also has a full orchestra performance of much of No Man's Land that proves that the film version of the cue has either an insert or is a different version altogether, that extra part that's in the film is not something that was micro-edited out of the full track.
He mentions that he wrote several different versions of Dartmoor, 1912 - the final version with the flute solo is apparently the most subtle and restrained version.
