Soundtracks are paramount to a good film. They can be epic, moving, heart warming. They are key to adding to the tension, adding to the drama of a film.
Each composer has his or her own style, their own flair. The Rabbit Film thought it would be wonderful to showcase some of the best composers in the business.
First, is Hans Zimmer whose music laces in the films of The Lion King, The Dark Knight Rises and Inception. His music becomes another character, its always epic, emotional and tense.
Check out a clip of his music below, taken from the film Inception:
Second, is Thomas Newman whose work spans from movie classic, The Shawshank Redemption White Oleander, Finding Nemo and A Series of Unfortunate Events. His style is to use hundreds of stringed instruments, he creates a dream-like quality to his music and they become part of the action, they become a character.

And third and finally, is Max Richter whose work spans from successful albums, including the highly successful On the Nature of Daylight to groundbreaking new documentary films, Waltz With Bashir. His music is dark, reflective, it takes you on a journey.
