Scoring Session – “The Incredibles”

Here’s a video about some of the behind the scenes stuff from the scoring session of “The Incredibles” by composer Michael Giacchino.

What I love about this video is how it talks to quite a few of the different people involved in the project. Not only do you hear from the musicians but the conductor and engineer as well. This film went all the way with the retro feel of the soundtrack by not only sticking to the original genre (jazz and symphony without modern electronic elements) but also by recording the soundtrack using analog tape.

Another interesting point is how you get to hear the individual sections as the camera pans around to the different sections of the orchestra. Fun stuff.
