Action Adventure


Following on from work on the films ‘Alien Vs. Predator’ (2004) and ’10,000 BC’ (2008), June 2009 saw James returning to Los Angeles where he continued his successful collaboration with Harald Kloser; providing the orchestrations as well as conducting the score to the epic feature film ’2012′.

Featuring an all-star Hollywood cast including John Cusack and Thandie Newton, Roland Emmerich’s thrilling blockbuster is a disaster adventure about a global cataclysm that brings an end to the world and tells of the heroic struggle of the survivors. 2012 – never before has a date in history been so significant to so many cultures, so many religions, scientists and governments.

James’s orchestrations and conducting style shaped and refined the dramatically pounding, grandiose score; capturing the essence of the film with its highly-crafted special effects sequences, dark themes, and journey of epic survival.

Orchestrated and conducted by James Seymour Brett
