Hans Zimmer Teaches Film Scoring | Official Trailer | MasterClass


In music, you’re basically
having a conversation. There’s a question,
there’s an answer. Ooh, there’s a bit of
a dodgy question here. I am convinced that I have
no idea how to do your movie. It’s always a blank
piece of paper. I can tell you
everything you need to know in one word– story. All they’re doing– set
designer, actor, writer, composer, we try
to create worlds. “Sherlock” It’s the score anybody could do. One microphone on a laptop. Ideas are not limited by budget. The creative process
takes place in your head. The interesting ideas
come from some kid in a garage in the Bronx. You just need to
break through the myth that you can’t create
a great Hollywood blockbuster on an iPad,
because if you have a story, you can do whatever
you want to do. I like writing in D. And it’s
nice that if you go from– [MUSIC PLAYING] It’s satisfying. For “Batman,” four French
horns on the right, four French horns on the left,
and they’re up in a gallery, up way above the orchestra. Two notes, but the
amount of expressiveness you can put into them. This is a musician’s life. Everybody tells you not to
do it and get a real job. When all is said and done and
we filled the highest high rises and we built the
fastest machines, there’s still going to
be room for somebody to tell you a story or somebody
to write you a piece of music. The seconds of your
life are ticking away. If somebody tells you that
there’s a rule, break it. That’s the only thing
that moves things forward. I’m Hans Zimmer. And this is my Master Class. [MUSIC PLAYING]

  1. Today was the 3rd time I ever watched an entire skippable ad in the whole time I've spent on YouTube… The ad was this video.

  2. Why did u left to add "inception " Theme @ 0:29 … .. Inception is one of the best themes he have ever done😇😇😇😇

  3. "The creative process takes place in your head."… So did I!
    Check out Longing, an original composition, on my channel!

  4. Haha. That's fucking funny. Hans Zimmer is teaching a class about film music. Not Danny Elfman, not Thomas Newman, Han Zimmer. Yeah, right.

  5. You wanna know the truth? Donald Trump deserves a film about his life and Presidency with a score composed by Hans Zimmer! Just as Hans thinks that he knows everything about film and T.V. shows scoring, Trump thinks that he can't do anything wrong with America. So Hans should musically treat him with a score that draws inspiration from what both he and Antonius B. Tom Holkenborg a.k.a. Junkie X.L. and J.X.L. produced for Lex Luthor in both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – Ultimate Edition from '16. Okay, I'm ready for all the condemnation that you're all now about to give me.

  6. The 7 seconds of music he played from 1:11 to 1:18 is more beautiful than most "music" composed by mumble rappers in their entire lifetime.

  7. I can't stop watching this Ad… Hans Zimmer is utterly compelling and it helps that this ad comes with what is undoubtedly his own audio making the entire thing feel like a film trailer.
    THIS is how adverts should be written… Perfect.

  8. Whoever made this ad needs to do a Masterclass.

    Obviously the music makes it and Hans himself is hypnotic but the editing is world-class

  9. I LOVE that genius analogy that he says "Music Is A Conversation." I sort of interpreted it as a conversations between two or more musical harmonies communicating with each other "having a conversation" that make up a score or song. For example in classical music for solo piano pieces the  left and right hand are having a conversation with each other creating one score.

  10. For years, I'd been adamantly ignoring my higher calling.
    Not anymore.
    Thank you Hans, I'M READY TO GO RENT A GARAGE IN THE BRONX.

  11. "In music you're basically having a conversation.
    in keys oh, hey how are you?
    in keys I'm doing fine.
    in keys are you?
    "Ooh. That's a bit if a dodgy question"
    That's what I heard lol

  12. how we do the 1:30 notes ?
    organ ? or organ through synthesizer ? what to look for on google ? it's stretched and pitch changed, i guess synth

    how come this add is up 3 years, but i started seeing master class adds only 3 weeks ago ?

  13. "If somebody tells you that there's a rule, break it. That's the only thing that moves things forward."
    I may or may have not shed a few tears while listening to this man giving me hope and support

  14. I always skip the ads. The first time life i didnt skip the ad. And it was for this video.Hes coming in Toronto in a few weeks but none of my friends are interested in real music 🙁 so ill probably miss it… Thank you for sharing your magical gift with us Mr. Zimmer

  15. I love it, starting 1:40. Especially, the part: "If someone tells you there is a rule, break it! That is the only thing moves
    things forward"

  16. I took this masterclass and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. It changed everything in my life. Now I'm following my dream to become a full-time musician and film composer.

  17. This man is probably the most inspiring man I’ve ever seen. What he does is absolutely amazing! I used to take piano lessons and now I’ve seen this I 100% regret that decision, I’m taking it up again.

  18. "I have no idea how to do your movie…."……."so I'm gonna make you the same orchestral rotary climax shit that I always do…for a thousands box…ok ? ok"

  19. "everybody tells you to get a real job" and "the seconds of your life are ticking away".. these quotes sound too inviting for people who are desparately seeking and ready to pay tons for learning a profession online, hence the expression "masterclass".. nice ad btw..

  20. Actually, I was looking for a vintage synthesizer on YouTube at 1 am. So this ad came up. And me: Forget about the synthesizer! Search for the ad and watch it again. Hans Zimmer your ads are so good 🙂 Such an inspiring person.
