A Trial Listen

Steven Spielberg’s new film, Bridge of Spies, starring Tom Hanks begins its theatrical run this week.

The legendary director, who has taken us on rides through the heroics and tragedy of war to a park with genetically-engineered dinosaurs to the open sea with a supreme predator to treasure-mapped adventures, has taken his camera and storytelling expertise to the high-stakes game of negotiation.

An ordinary lawyer protecting a captured enemy of war with the American legal system as his defense during the Cold War may not sound terribly exciting, but the story (based in truth) just may lead us all to experience the movie that critics are raving about.

While the trailer looks exciting, the music takes it to another level…the Spielberg-level.

Movie soundtracks can make or break a film. In special cases, the perfect score can define a film, characters, story and/or concept.

A powerful soundtrack can bridge the gap between action and inaction…

or between staying home and going out to the theater.
