One of Jeremy Turner’s most recent projects has been composing and conducting the score to the Netflix original series Five Came Back, produced by Steven Spielberg and Scott Rudin.
Adapted from Mark Harris’ best-selling book, “Five Came Back: A Story of Hollywood and the Second World War,” and directed by Laurent Bouzereau, the three-part docuseries tells the extraordinary story of how Hollywood changed World War II – and how World War II changed Hollywood, through the interwoven experiences of five filmmakers who interrupted their successful careers to serve their country, risk their lives and bring the truth back to the American people: John Ford, William Wyler, John Huston, Frank Capra, and George Stevens. To guide viewers through the different personalities, interweaving chronologies and globe-trotting locales, the Five Came Back team turned to the voices of five modern cinematic masters: Steven Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola, Guillermo Del Toro, Paul Greengrass and Lawrence Kasdan. Three-time Oscar-winner Meryl Streep provides the narration for Five Came Back.
On this episode of THE ANNOTATOR, Jeremy Turner talks about: the five motifs he wrote for each of the 5 central figures, how they evolve and change along with the experiences of the 5 directors and lastly how he used silence to give the moments of score even greater impact.
