I'm surprised that he's going to score a Dreamworks movie. Sure it must be a animated one. Nice that he talks about how he manage to make a lot of proyects every year, And thoses he didn't.

Wonderful Interview! And now we know why Desplat doesn't score many action films.

What an intelligent and articulate guy. He clearly chooses his projects carefully and I admire him for that. Fantastic composer. He looks a bit tired though.

Excellent interview.

"I'm only the composer but I'm gonna spend long long long hours in my studio locked in watching up people on my screen and I want to be with good people. Even if I don't know them and they don't know me I'm gonna spend time with them."

"John Williams Catch Me If You Can which should have won everything I think.... his opening titles is forever, just for that he should have had the Oscar."

Great guy.

Here's another great interview:

Desplat says that he's glad that Deathly Hallows Part 2 ended with Williams's Leaving Hogwarts. Also the mentions of Reznor and Zimmer.

Here's another Desplat interview:

This answer was of great interest:

Q: How has film composing changed in the past decade?

A: It seems sometimes that after more than 600 years of sophisticated, extremely scientific and incredible music, there's a kind of a laziness in what I hear in many movies now. Don't get me wrong. It doesn't have to be a big score. It can be very minimal. ... But it's just a matter of sophistication and craft. I would say for the last 10 years it's lost that a bit. There's always a wave like this. When synthesizers appeared everyone was a composer suddenly ... It kind of went away but now it's coming back because of (computer programs) Garage Band and Logic. And so now anyone can be a composer because you can buy a keyboard and a computer and just put things together. But putting things together doesn't give you a mind and a storyline and something that's interesting.
