The Polar Express (2004)


Warner Bros


This was the first project after Johnís move to a new house. It was started on a temporary rig in a spare bedroom while the studio was being built. We wrote tons of music, and after weeks of trial and error, Mojo (the trailer house we work for) was awarded the domestic campaign. This meant that we would be able to record the trailer with a real orchestra. Peter Rotter contracted the Todd AO scoring stage, some of the finest musicians in the world and Shawn Murphy to record and mix. After the main trailer was finished, the gig stretched out for months and included TV spots, featurettes, and extended trailers.
