Interview: Lorne Balfe - Mission: Impossible - Fallout (Ep. 114)

LORNE BALFE, composer of the original score to MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - FALLOUT, talks about why he thinks it is important to engage with fans about his work on social media. He also opens up: on what the challenges are when taking the musical-reigns of an existing movie-franchise, about what Tom Cruise had to say about his original score, and finally, on something that no one knew (until now) about his experience of scoring the sixth entry into the Mission: Impossible franchise.
