For over two and half decades award-winning composer Marco Beltrami has offered his evolving approach to scoring for feature film, documentary and episodic television. His projects and styles vary; from westerns like 3:10 to Yuma to docs like Free Solo to the superhero genre like Logan to war epics like The Hurt Locker – Beltrami breathes musical life into each project.
Today on Open Dialogue Beltrami shares with Noel T. Manning II his approach to working on A Quiet Place and its sequel; he also answers questions relating to screenplays, what he learned from the COVID-19 pandemic, and why sound designers and composers are no longer at odds with one another.
Noel T. Manning is a member of the CCA, SEFCA and the NCFCA and is also the host of the television program and radio show Meet Me at the Movies. He’s the founder of the Real to Reel Film Fest and is an adjunct professor of film studies. When he’s not embracing mainstream, indie, international, documentary or art films, he’s digging into the world of cinema by chatting with principle individuals involved in various aspects of the filmmaking industry.
