I plan on directing films one day, but again to reiterate what Hurr said, the composer would depend on the film script and direction. I would love to work on a film scored by Thomas Newman, but if it was a thriller or action oriented film I would look more towards John Powell or Edwawrd Shearmur.

I'd probably write a sci-fi with lots of characters so I'd like someone to add that leit motif touch to the movie. I'd go for someone like Williams or Giacchino for it. Probably Giacchino because his music just seems more robust at the moment.

a fun question!

Well i made a short film once, used a bunch of moody James Newton Howard pieces.

If i were to make My Movie, the sweeping sci-fi epic of my dreams, *squeal!* it'd be a close call between Howard and Harry Gregson-Williams.

There's my bit. Cool

If I could I would choose Joel Goldsmith. But I'm really happy with Christian Brunner and Costas Stergiou by now Mr. Green

Hmm this is kinda a cool question and like most have said it would somewhat depend on what the movie was. Here is my preferred composer for different genres:

Horror: Christopher Young
Comedy: Rolfe Kent or William Ross
Action: John Powell or Harry Gregson Williams
Adventure: John Scott or John Debney
Drama: John Williams
Wild Card (When I reject one of these scores, could come in and give an excellent score in a short period of time): James Newton Howard

And this could change by tomorrow! Laughing

Definitly Joel Goldsmith or Trevor Jones.

They meet a good deal of what I like for movies...

Funny, when I started this thread, I didn't think so many people would go for the genre route, mostly because I thought there could be one single composer whose style would be more in touch within your own personal sensibilities, thus resulting in a fictional collaboration.

Every composer out there can (and should be able to) write in every single genre. Cool

Yep, it would appear I am the one who screwed up the thread then Razz . Yeah I agree every composer should be able to handle every genre, but just because they can handle it does not mean they can excel at it. That is why I think certain composers are better suited for certain genres and therefore are better utilized in those roles.

Fine! If I have to be nailed down to one, then I pick Thomas Newman. He has a light side and a dark side to his work that kind of seeps into my psyche. I agree with Nate in that I prefer hearing some composers' works in certain genres over others, not that they aren't capable of composing for all types of films. For instance, I'm not so keen on Jarhead, although it was an interesting departure for Newman scoring something kind of muscular and action-like.

I vaguely remember an intention to respond to this post, back in the day, and getting busy with work...

I seriously remember that.

As James Horner has unfortunately died (my first choice at the time,) I would have to say:

A partnership between John Williams & Alan Silvestri, or James Newton Howard.

Each of these composers can handle marches or leitmotifs, as well as more quiet introspective character studies or thematic pieces.

With Vangelis being a wild card.
