Ola Fløttum HARPA Nordic Film Composers Award 2019


My name is Ola Fløttum I’m nominated for Best Score
for Thelma My background is that I started off as an artist releasing albums and playing in a band and… …wondering how on
earth I could make a living out of that I remember like a couple of years before
that I thought like: Wouldn’t I be perfect for scoring music? But I didn’t know how to get into that world Working as a film composer I always
question: “Should there be music here at all?” And if you have a strong story
you don’t need that much music Filmmaking is like a really really
complex process of a lot of people sharing their talents and building up
this house together I sometimes feel that the music has too
much information And if you really pay attention to what the actors do – – it could be just a small sound from the breath – or like a sigh that could
disappear with the music It could be essential for the character and
for the appearance of the acting I tend to like the inner drama more than
the outer drama because… …there’s a lot more going on in people’s minds and heads and hearts You have to be careful with
what you’re highlighting I guess And that’s what I always try to figure out
early in the process Instead of like trying to be all over the place
