The December edition of FSM ONLINE is now live. This month's cover story, THE WOMEN OF WINTER, covers a wide-ranging field of projects -- the majority of them for Hulu. First up, AMIE DOHERTY discusses her work on Hulu's holiday romantic comedy HAPPIEST SEASON, starring Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis; AMELIA WARNER collaborates with John Patrick Shanley on WILD MOUNTAIN THYME, starring Emily Blunt and Warner's husband, Jamie Dornan; JULIE BERNSTEIN and STEVE BERNSTEIN reprise their roles on ANIMANIACS, also for Hulu; and REBEKKA KARIJORD takes the reins from JON EKSTRAND on the Greta Thunberg doc I AM GRETA, yet again for Hulu. Also this issue are a chat with DAVID FLEMING about his collaboration with Hans Zimmer and Ron Howard on Netflix's HILLBILLY ELEGY; Cary Wong presents his annual MEMO TO THE ACADEMY, right on time, despite the delayed 2021 Oscar ceremony; in keeping with our Swedish theme, we have a JOHAN SODERQVIST SOUNDTRACK OBSCURITIES; Composer's Corner looks at Spitfire's ABBEY ROAD ONE: ORCHESTRAL FOUNDATIONS; a RANDY EDELMAN Ear of the Month contest; lots of album reviews, including NEWS OF THE WORLD (James Newton Howard), THE MANDALORIAN: SEASON 2 (Ludwig Goransson) and LET HIM GO (Michael Giacchino); more embedded audio clips, and more.
Happy Holidays, and enjoy!
