Close Encounters

Ep. 27: David Lawrence - Composer

Ep. 27: David Lawrence - Composer

Thanks to David Lawrence's impressive musical pedigree, the successful composer can include "being around Sammy Davis, Jr. and Frank Sinatra" on his list of the many life-altering experiences he had growing up as the son of legendary entertainers, Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gormé.  

Lawrence sat down with Cinematic Immunity and discussed his greatest influences, his artistic process, the nuts and bolts of being a film & television composer, working successfully with extreme time-tables, and the creative tug-of-war between directors and studios. From adding hairpins on the strings, to subtracting that repeating drum loop, it's an introduction into a whole new area of the filmmaking process that you won't want to miss! 

Special thanks to Pancho Burgos-Goizueta, for his help in welcoming David Lawrence to the Cinematic Immunity podcast!
