    16 Musicians-Turned-Film Composers And Their Breakout Scores

    Increasingly over the last two decades, musicians and bands have looked upon the film score and seen a rare opportunity to challenge themselves in a new medium, and also to gain a break from non-stop touring. The results have been an eclectic, unconventional bounty. Last month, Mica Levi of Micachu ...

    Jon Brion To Score Vince Vaughn Comedy 'Delivery Man'

    Among the many talents of composer Jon Brion, besides mounting unique live shows and producing the records of music's top performers, is his ability to switch between scoring small-scale and mainstream films with ease. His work with Charlie Kaufman and Paul Thomas Anderson perhaps allows him a bit m...

    Exclusive: Jon Brion Scores Pixar's 'The Blue Umbrella' Short

    While we first mentioned back in the summer of 2012 that producer and composer Jon Brion would be scoring what was then "the untitled umbrella short" for Pixar (to play ahead of this summer's "Monsters University"), it was never confirmed by the studio… until now. The short, now entitled "The Blue U...

    Watch: Paul Thomas Anderson's Pilot for 'The Jon Brion Show,' Featuring Elliott Smith

    "I tore up the floorboards at H.Q. the other day and came up with this little number on VHS. She holds up well." So reads the description for the video below from Al Rose Promotions, Paul Thomas Anderson's YouTube account. It's a slightly scatchy 2000 pilot for a VH1 series that wa...

    Watch: 'The Jon Brion Show' Pilot Directed By Paul Thomas Anderson Featuring Elliott Smith & Brad Mehldau

    Jon Brion Tried To Score 'The Fighter' For David O. Russell, But The Score Was Scrapped

    At the beginning of the aughts, Jon Brion was the man for film soundtracks, especially the quirky and offbeat kind. He wrote the score for Paul Thomas Anderson's "Punch-Drunk Love" (and had done the same for "Magnolia"), as well as Michel Gondry's "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" and David O....

    Soundtrack Details For Jon Brion's Score For Ghoulish Animated Film 'ParaNorman'

    If we were allowed to talk about these things (which, of course, we're not), we would say that "ParaNorman," the new stop-motion animated film from Laika opening August 17th in 3D and regular cinemas, isn't just the best animated movie released so far this year (not to mention one of the biggest sur...

    Jon Brion Scoring Judd Apatow's 'This Is 40'

    What is there to say about Jon Brion that you don't already know (or should know)? A whipsmart songwriter, a dazzling musician (his live shows are legendary), an encyclopedia of music knowledge and history, and a producer extraordinaire who has worked with everyone from Kanye West to Brad Mehlda...

    Beautiful Trailer, Bland Poster Debut For 3D Stop-Motion Animated ‘ParaNorman’

    2011 hasn’t exactly been an exceptional year for animated films. Besides this spring’s deliciously strange “Rango” and this summer’s gorgeous, supple “Winnie the Pooh,” there hasn’t been a whole lot to fawn over, animation-wise. (When Pixar unloads a colossal letdown like “Cars 2,” you know the medium is having an “off year.”) Thankfully, 2012 is poised to be an embarrassment of riches, with new movies from proven studios like Blue Sky (“Ice Age: Continental Drift”), Illumination ("The Lorax"), Disney ("Wreck-It Ralph" and Tim Burton's "Frankenweenie") Aardman (“The Pirates! Band of Misfits”) and the beloved Studio Ghibli (“The Secret World o...
