About the Michael Giacchino Interview

In my 20-year career I've composed the music for many video games (Call of Duty, Medal of Honor), films (Star Trek, Super 8, The Incredibles, Up, Ratatouille) and TV series (Alias, Lost, Fringe). Last year, I scored Zootopia, Star Trek Beyond, Dr. Strange and Rogue One -- the first score to be composed for a Star Wars film following John Williams. This year, you heard my music if you saw War for the Planet of the Apes, Spider-Man: Homecoming and, most recently, Pixar's Coco.

If you ever wondered how someone scores a film or video game, now's your chance. Go ahead and ask me anything!

EDIT: Thank you all for your questions and comments! I'm not sure what I was expecting, but you guys exceeded whatever it was. I'm sorry I couldn't get to everyone's questions, but you might find a lot of what you're looking for on my website. You can also keep up with me on Twitter. Thanks again for making this such a fun experience! Now I know why /u/mistersavage likes AMAs so much.
