Episode 5:
Jon Favreau

This week’s podcast is a very special one. Actor, director, writer and all-round good guy Jon Favreau (Swingers, Iron Man) talks about the making of the new Jungle Book movie.
From the big-band beats of Swingers to the Latin and R&B infused rhythms of Chef, Jon has always displayed a knack for using sound to perfectly compliment his visuals. This is no bad thing in the context of his remake of The Jungle Book, what with its formidable musical legacy. As well as George Bruns’ majestic score, it also features a series of unforgettable showstoppers by longtime Disney collaborators the Sherman brothers. Good job he had Bill Murray and Christopher Walken to help out!

Todd Phillips

Writer / Director Todd Phillips has been hugely successful in delivering a steady stream of huge comedy films. Each one of those has at least half a dozen scenes, that without the music, probably wouldn’t be as funny, dark or memorable. With a step towards more dramatic comedy with his new film War Dogs, Todd hasn’t changed his attitude towards the importance of music in film.

Episode 2:David Ayer

This week in our second in the new series I sit down with Writer/Director David Ayer. He’s known for his immersive & gritty style of film making in movies like End of Watch and Fury. How has music shaped and influenced his film making, along with working with composers Stephen Price and David Sardy? I hope you find this a fascinating insight into the mind of an incredibly accomplished film maker backed by an eclectic selection of music.
