Everything starts with the script . If you get that right, chances are you’ll have a good film.
Rocket Man is a good example. It’s a beautifully written and original piece – a bitter/sweet comedy that can really pull on the heartstrings or just make you laugh. It also has some great ensemble acting.
So this was an opportunity to write a lighter, whimsical sometimes romantic score and also create some genuinely funny odd-ball music along the way.
