Product February 17, 1999 Director`s Guild Of America Hollywood, California

This is an opportunity to hear Mr. Elfman`s story and experience in his own words, told with engaging honesty and philosophical humor. The interview was conducted by SCL member, Jerry Grant.

Mr. Elfman touches upon subjects such as how he approaches a new film, working with temp scores, the importance of setting the tone of the film at the very beginning, communicating with directors, his transition from the acoustic world to the MIDI world, and the "non-process" of writing the score. Many lively anecdotes include his edgy experiences on the scoring stage and the horrors of the dubbing process.

Danny Elfman`s scores include "Sleepy Hollow" (1999), "Good Will Hunting" (1997), "Men in Black" (1997), "Mars Attacks!" (1996), "Mission: Impossible" (1996), "Dead Presidents" (1995), "The Nightmare Before Christmas" (1993), the "Batman" movies and "Beetlejuice" (1988). In 1997 he received Oscar nominations for "Good Will Hunting" (Original Dramatic Score) and "Men In Black" (Original Comedy or Musical Score).
