Meeting up with HTF’s Brian Ralston and Director Chris Chan Lee from Silent River:
  • Intro by Sam: Meet Brian Ralston and Chris Chan Lee
  • Interview Qs:
    • Brian: What can you tell us about your work on Silent River
    • Chris: The film is out on digital to buy now. How has the reaction been from audiences? What was the film’s journey to getting made? Is there a disk for those who don’t do digital?
    • Brian: The music in SR is very unique yet has a lot of stings that reminded me of 70s horror films. What was your inspiration for the soundtrack?
    • Chris: this is your fourth film. How has the progression been going?
    • Brian: Can you tell us about the Atmos authoring process and releasing the soundtrack in Atmos?
    • Chris: a few of the reviews I have read call it very Lynchian. What’s your take on that?
    • Brian: Having heard the final LOTR on Prime I still think your ideas would have been wonderful. Can you enjoy the show with that in your history? What was your take on the musical?
    • Chris: I’m intrigued by the role of the stranger. Can you give us some insight into some of his motivations?
    • Brian: Can you tell us about your podcast? What about your own home theater?
    • Chris: you are both screenwriter and director here, how was it managing both hats?
    • Brian: What’s up next?
    • Chris: What’s up next, both for Silent River and yourself? Will we see SR on something like Prime or Netflix?
Good Bad Or Ugly?
Sam - Infernal Affairs
Brian - Jasmine
Chris - Everything Everywhere All At Once

NOTE: I experienced 4+ power brownouts and lost 10-15 seconds of conversation each time. I edited as best I could to mask those interruptions but it's not perfect. Those responsible have been sacked.

I fondly remember how I first met Brian during the 2008 HTF Hollywood Meet. Paramount was hosting breakfast on the lot and Sam and I grabbed a table in the patio area and Brian sat down and joined us. Very pleasant conversation that morning, and then that evening Brian gave HTF a demonstration on his process of scoring a film (which may have changed since then as technology has), with examples from 9/Tenths and more specifically Graduation.
