Talking “Mission: Impossible” with Joe Kraemer

JoeKraemerJBParamountFun last night doing a Q&A with composer Joe Kraemer, who scored the fifth film in the Mission: Impossible franchise, Rogue Nation (already on track to outpace the four previous films). The film wowed the Society of Composers & Lyricists audience at Paramount, and Kraemer was both informative and funny while regaling the crowd (mostly composers and songwriters) with the ups and downs of scoring a big summer popcorn flick. I was pleased to be able to tell him that Lalo Schifrin (composer of the original Mission: Impossible themes that Joe brilliantly applied throughout the score) loved what he had done.
