TV and film composer Christopher Willis joined Cultured Vultures to discuss scoring Armando Iannucci’s new film, The Death of Stalin.
Thank you for joining Cultured Vultures today. How are things treating you?
Good, thanks. Great.
You composed the score for writer/director Armando Iannucci’s new film, The Death of Stalin, which has already been released overseas but awaiting theatrical release in the US. You’ve had a long relationship with Armando, having composed every season of Veep, so is that what drew you to the project?
That’s right. Armando met up just as he was getting ready to leave the show and we had a chat about all kinds of things. The subject of the movie came up and it sounded tremendously exciting.
