He just joined on the 13th and is already a labelled a veteran? :huh:

Two explanations as I see it.

#1 A glitch on the board

#2 It is someone's second account, since Drax's parallel account last year also attained that rank immediately.

NAME: Frankie Westmoreland

LOCATION: Texas, U.S.A.

AGE: 21

SEX: Male

PROFESSION/EDUCATION: Currently studying Radio-Television-Film at the University of Texas at Austin - one year left!

FAVORITE JOHN WILLIAMS SCORE(S): Return of the Jedi, the first three Indys, E.T., The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones

FAVORITE NON-JOHN WILLIAMS SCORE(S): Julian Nott's Wallace and Gromit, Blade Runner, Medal of Honor (Giacchino and Lennertz), Batman 1989, Lawrence of Arabia, Homecoming Season 2 by Emile Mosseri (very Herrmann!), classical that JW pulled from for his film music, Rite of Spring (Ritual of the Ancestors and Spring Round Dances - I like the 70's Leonard Bernstein version with the LSO a lot as to me it sounds very close to the general recorded sound of ANH - not sure exactly why but would be interested in exploring this further!), Tannhauser overture, Le Tombeau de Couperin II, anything by Erich Wolfgang Korngold, Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf, Prokofiev's Ivan the Terrible, Joel McNeely's Shadows of the Empire, Belshazzar overture, Hor care canzonette by Claudio Monteverdi, Halo 4 by Neil Davidge, Halo 5 by Kazuma Jinnouchi, the Star Wars Resistance score by Michael Tavera... I could do this for a while! I still need to discover more Goldsmith.

FAVORITE FILM(S): Star Wars - if I had to pick a favorite it would be ROTJ, Vertigo, Raiders, Temple of Doom, E.T., The Wrong Trousers, Tarkovsky's Solaris is a huge influence - VeggieTales and Thomas the Tank Engine are huge influences from my childhood that I cannot ignore.

FAVORITE DIRECTOR(S): Spielberg, Lucas, Hitchcock, Sam Esmail (Homecoming), Dave Filoni

SPECIAL INTEREST(S): Voiceover, impressions, sound editing/mixing/design

VISITING THIS BOARD SINCE: A few months back - I actually used this to assist me with putting together a Spotify playlist of a chronological version of TROS released score! I love popping on here every now and again to "hear" other opinions on JW's music. To me, his music speaks to me in ways other music really hasn't, and I think a lot of that has to do with him pulling from older composers. It is the music I hear if I'm running late, stressed, successful/victorious etc. along with other film scores!
