April 5, 2012 by Mike McNamara
If you are a fan of action movies, THE RAID: REDEMPTION is a no-brainer must-see-immediately pick for you. And who better to provide the score for this uber-intense, adrenalized thriller than Mike Shinoda of LINKIN PARK fame, working side-by-side with composer Joe Trapanese, whose credits include TRON: LEGACY and DEXTER. Screen Magazine’s Mike McNamara sat down with these gents to discuss their unlikely pairing while also asking: what challenges did Shinoda face in his first foray into creating a movie score? Why was it so important for him not to be pigeon-holed as “the LINKIN PARK guy?” All that and more in this Screen Magazine exclusive!
