Hans Zimmer Teaches Film Scoring Course
Tell a story with music
Hans Zimmer didn’t see a film until he was 12 years old. Since then, he’s scored over 150 films, including Inception, The Lion King, and The Dark Knight. In his MasterClass, the self-taught Academy Award winner teaches how he creates sounds from nothing, composes compelling character themes, and scores a movie before ever seeing it. By the end, you’ll have everything you need to tell your story.
As a child, Hans Zimmer took two weeks of piano lessons. That’s it. Since then, the Academy Award winner has scored over 150 films, from Sherlock Holmes to The Lion King. A master of creating character themes, Hans knows how to collaborate with directors, musicians and editors; develop a tempo to provide rhythm to a film of any genre; and compose the score before even seeing the film.
In his MasterClass, Hans Zimmer sheds light on how he found his voice, to help you find yours. He’ll teach you the rules of film scoring – and how to break them. How to collaborate with filmmakers and musicians. How to refine themes and score full-length films or shorts. By the end, you’ll have the tools he uses on his projects, to use on your own.
