VARIETY Interview

A new Variety interview features a roundtable discussion with composers Hans Zimmer and John Powell, Fox Music prexy Robert Kraft and Sony Pictures Worldwide Music president Lia Vollack. Thomas Newman phoned in to contribute to an all-too-brief discussion about the state of film scoring. An excerpt:
"It can be a great time for film music. Does it turn out that way? Not all the time, because there are so many people -- middle-management people -- with agendas that can make things more difficult. I'm so grateful to just be in a room with great players and hang with them, and have lunch with them. Any time is potentially a great time. Yes, you may be shot down, and things may be awful, but things can also be potentially fantastic."
Read the rest, in which Newman reveals some frustration about LITTLE CHILDREN being released only digitally, here.
