Carter Burwell Talks About Writing the Piano Piece in ‘Breaking Dawn Part 2′
At what point in the filming process will you come onboard? Is the film usually finished by the time you see it and set the score?
Generally, I don’t actually write anything until a film has actually been shot. But, there are some exceptions.
In the movie I’m working on right now, which is “Breaking Dawn: Part II,” they needed Rob Pattinson and the actress who plays his daughter to play piano onscreen. I had to write this duet before they shot the film so they could actually learn the parts. Rob is a musician, so he prides himself on working out the fingering for these correctly.
I’m so excited to see Rob and Mackenzie performing together in this scene. It’s such a sweet daddy/daughter moment in the books.
