Graham offers a rare glimpse into the working process of a film and TV composer, using language aimed at everyone, with stunning, revealing visuals and, in this instance, an orchestral score. He uncovers some of the creative decisions made in composing the music to the IMAX 3D family film “Amazing Mighty Micro Monsters”, and how the score contributes to the story-telling, how it amplifies the emotion, and how it helps transform tiny creatures into epic monsters with super-hero powers. With thanks to director/producer Mike Davis and executive producer Anthony Geffen for their kind permission to use an excerpt from the film, produced by Atlantic Productions for Sky 3D.

Graham Hadfield is an award-winning composer for film and TV, with broad experience in both drama and documentary series. His credits include BAFTA and Emmy-nominated productions, and global broadcast credits including series and specials for BBC, Channel 4, Discovery, ABC. For more information, visit
