Nicholas Britell

Emmy Award-winning composer, Nicholas Britell, is enjoying a moment right now. The Oscar-nominated talent behind the scores of films like “Moonlight,” “If Beale Street Could Talk” and “Vice” and television series like “Succession” is as in-demand as they come, an artist who approaches film music composition in incredibly original ways, with some of our greatest contemporary filmmakers lining up to collaborate with him. For Netflix, Britell is behind the haunting, eerily timeless melodies of David Michod’s “The King,” a story taken in part from William Shakespeare’s “Henriad” series of plays and focused on the rise of King Henry V. Like all of Britell’s work, the score is a piece of its own within the film, the music seemingly sprouting from the very tones and atmospheres rendered by Michod and his team behind the camera.  In this week’s episode of “The Call Sheet,” Britell dives into his love of hip hop, his use of unconventional instruments for the score of “The King," and the importance of trusting your instincts.
