Regarding recording session footage, I like for instance the Goldsmith DVD with River Wild footage, but it wouldn't be something I'd need to see in order to enjoy the music. As a matter of fact it kinda takes away from my enjoyment of the music and I'd rather be watching the movie with that music instead of the recording session. Also, if you are going to show the recording session that means you show the bad takes as well? Wouldn't be more than a curiosity really.

I'm a bigger fan of isolated score tracks on dvd & blu-rays.

Yes, why labels do not sell videos with the recording sessions of movie scores?

Because the sales wouldn't make it worth their effort, is my guess.

There was a dvd of Jerry Goldsmith a couple of years ago. It was very expensive and I wonder how many purchased it.

And since somebody has pirated it to YouTube, so everybody can watch the whole thing for free, on demand, why would anybody ever buy it?

I know the person who paid to make that DVD. I know how angry he is that someone uploaded it to YouTube. I also know how fans, with their sense of entitlement, probably wouldn't give two hoots that he's angry. YouTube certainly doesn't. (YouTube only responds to copyright violation notices from big corporate entities, apparently.)

One thing's for sure. Nobody's going to do a DVD like that again. And I don't blame them.

I would die and go to pleasure heaven if Spielberg ever released all the videos he shot of the Williams recording sessions.

I take it you missed Simonec and Giacchino conducting the Dallas Symphony last year... It was glorious.

I've got it - to be honest, an hour's footage of one recording session is a bit much! If it was a compilation of selections from sessions that would be one thing, but...

I don't have the Goldsmith DVD (it was THE RIVER WILD, if memory serves), but personally I would love it if the WHOLE thing was there. Makes it easier to feel like "you're there", witnessing the whole creative process as the music takes life from the score sheets.

We are talking about the Jerry Goldsmith DVD that is now out of print? On offer for crazy prices?

Who cares if it's on youtube? I want to own the official release and not a compressed uploaded version. I just checked, it's in 360p lol, Goldsmith's ponytail is one pixel. Also, by the same logic movies wont be made anymore because every movie is available on the internet... There will always be fans who support an official release.

I'd love to see the complete scoring session footage of TESB and Return Of The Jedi. The footage from the Poltergeist sessions would be pretty cool too.

Since it is virtually impossible for any composer or performers outside the Hollywood Insider Bubble to get close to the processes of preparing for and carrying out the orchestral film scoring biz, it would be helpful for outsiders who want to get into the biz to see them carried out.

Just sayin'.

I'm not sure what you mean. Composers break in all the time. It's not easy, but then nothing is. And I don't really see how seeing an orchestra perform music would be all that helpful.

Since that films gets special features on DVDs an Blurays, and film scores are treated more like movies in these days, I always thought that they should release footage of the scoring sessions.

Like a behind the scenes feature. Having the composer talking about the themes, how does he gets inspiration for the film he's scoring, the final mix, and composer's final speech to the orchestra (JNH's King Kong speech is beautiful).


Surely, some special features have to exist somewhere like this.

Can someone point me in the right direction?
