Curious to hear more from the creative mind behind the scores of the Transformers live-action movie franchise, including Age of Extinction, Steve Jablonsky? Look no further: MStarz were able to catch up with the composer to talk about his tastes in music, his formation, his arrival on the music scene and his relationship with director Michael Bay - check out the whole piece here, and a snippet below!

You've worked with filmmaker Michael Bay and his production company, Platinum Dunes, on a number of projects. How involved is he in working with you?

He's very involved. He said to me one time that for him, the sound of his movies is 50% of what he puts out there. He considers it that important. That includes music and sound effects. He wants to hear every cue, he likes to live with it for a little while-which I get, when someone hears a piece of music for the first time and I say, do you like it or not? If I were in his position, I would go "I think I like it. I need to hear it a few more times. Can I hear it again tomorrow?"

He's very involved, not just in sound and music, but he's very involved in every aspect of his films; which I think is why his life is just so crazy because he'll come to me to hear some music and he's always racing off to go to look at the color timing of the picture or to go listen to sound effects. Whatever it is, there are a million things ... he might be more involved than people think. The music to him, he either feels it or he doesn't. He feels the music and he knows it's something working for him. That's how he judges it, and like I said, he wants to hear everything. It's good for me because he pushes me to make it right. There's so much music in these movies, I kind of get lost in these scenes, writing for days and days. He's a good judge of what works, what doesn't and what's boring. It's a good collaboration, I think, that we have at this point.

How much creative freedom do you have?

He gives me all the freedom in the world, which is great. When we started Age of Extinction, the only thing he said to me is that it was a brand new cast; let's treat this as something new. We have three movies worth of music, but let's set it aside and start working on these new ideas. That was it; I just started writing and would send him theme pieces that I was writing. I wasn't even writing to picture yet, I was just writing music inspired by some of the visuals that I had seen in his cutting room. I would just send pieces to him to see what he was responding to. He seemed to be responding to the simpler things. This little piano melody I did and things like this, which is just something I thought would be cool in the movie. It's not something he asked me to do, so he definitely does give me an open canvas to try new things that I think might work. Of course, if he doesn't like it he's gonna say so. If there's something that's not quite right, he will definitely give me general notes. "I like this, you lose me here..." We have a good shorthand now where I can just send him music and he will listen to it when he's in the music mood. He will call me up and tell me if it's good or not. He let's me do what I think is right and we take it from there.

Paramount Extends Michael Bay Deal for Three More Years

According to a new article in media website The Wrap, the deal between Paramount Pictures and director Michael Bay has been extended for another three years, and includes two of Bay's companies. This does not really come as a surprise, given the sheer amount of money even just Transformers: Age of Extinctions has made internationally. It also reinforces the idea that Bay will be directing the next installment in the movie series, of course - to find out more, head here, and check out a snippet below!

Paramount is keeping cash cow Michael Bay around for the long haul.

The studio announced on Thursday that the “Transformers” director had extended for three more years its first-look deal with Bay's production company, Platinum Dune, and added another of his companies, Bay Films, to the deal as well.

“With an ever-growing, worldwide fan base, Michael is truly one of the most inspired and beloved filmmakers of our time,” said Brad Grey, Paramount chairman and CEO. “We take great pride in the fact that Michael is part of the Paramount family and we look forward to growing our productive and successful partnership.”

[...]

“Over the years I have become part of the Paramount family,” Bay enthused in a press release. “There is a synergy there that feels different than any other place in Hollywood. From Brad Grey and Rob Moore, where my relationship goes back more than a decade, to my very good friend Adam Goodman, and to Philippe Dauman, who has put so much trust in me, and with the powerful marketing of Josh Greenstein and Megan Colligan, Paramount makes for a very comfortable place to work.”

You may remember the first part of this lengthy, in-depth interview with IDW's Transformers wordsmith James Roberts from a while back. The folks over at Sequart were finally able to post the second part, and you can read it in its entirety here! Take a brief glimpse at some of the great topics discussed, from Chromedome and Rewind's relationship, Megatron's development and the importance of pacing and dialogue, below, too.

Transformers News: Reiventing the Cog Part 2 - Interview with James Roberts: Chromedome/Rewind, Megatron, Politics


WHITTAKER: Knowing you go through that kind of stringent screening of dialogue lends, at least from this reader’s perspective, the characters a certain charming honesty. They seem like real entities rather than just mouthpieces for certain ideas and opinions or to appear simply as catalysts for narrative.

ROBERTS: Thanks! A lot of MTMTE stories are quite high-concept, or if not high-concept then high-density in terms of the plot and the number of things happening at any one time. And because you’re limited to 22 pages and a certain number of panels per page, you only have so much space to convey ideas and information. I try, sometimes successfully, to smuggle exposition into natural-sounding dialog.

I’ve become more confident in how to impart information, and in how good readers are at filling in gaps when you hold stuff back. You can structure a conversation between two characters in such a way that the reader comes in halfway through and discerns the thrust of what’s been said; and then you can dance around a bit and use ‘hard info’ sparingly, but the tone and pace of the conversation, and the order in which certain details are revealed, can lend everything a realistic bounce and ensure that what needs to be established has been established.

The kind and talented man that is composer Steve Jablonsky, the mind behind all live-action Transformers movies scores, has posted on his official Facebook page a couple of announcements regarding the Age of Extinction score and some juicy news about his attendance at SDCC 2014! Read on below to find out more about potential upcoming albums, ways to win signed score sheets and even the elusive Transformers (2007) CD set!

Transformers News: Steve Jablonsky's Transformers: Age of Extinction Maybe Coming to CD, Win a Signed Score Sheet


And by the way, for those asking about an Age of Extinction CD release, I am doing everything I can to make it happen. There are a lot of factors that go into a studio's decision whether or not to release physical copies of a movie score. They definitely lean towards digital releases. It's less expensive and that is just the way things are headed now. I have made my argument that there are still a lot of soundtrack fans out there who appreciate holding a real CD in their hands, and appreciate listening to CD quality audio. I am doing everything I can.

I do have some copies of the original TF1 score, I know there are some people who were not able to get a copy before it went out of print. I'll sign a couple of those for this weekend's Comic Con tweet fest Watch out for questions at @jablonsky_steve

Thanks to all of you for the love and support.

Steve

Heading down to Comic Con today, really looking forward to meeting everyone. I'm bringing some goodies with me to give away after the panel, which gave me an idea for everyone who is not able to attend. I was thinking I might tweet out pictures of Comic Con craziness, seems like a fun way to get more into Twitter. But what if I randomly throw in a Transformers question, and the first person to reply with the right answer will receive a signed score page. Don't worry the questions will be easy

If anyone is interested you'll find me over on Twitter under the name @jablonsky_steve

Hopefully I'll meet some of you in person down in San Diego!
