Finished mixing a great new live action film for the Japanese market called Gatchaman last week. It’s based on the Japanese animated series that started in 1972. There was a version in the U.S titled “Battle of the Planets” which was around in 1978. I used to love this cartoon as a kid, so it was a real honor to be able to work on the first live action movie version.
This is the first project I worked with composer Nima Fakhrara. We had a great experience and the Japanese clients couldn’t have been more gracious. I’m looking forward to Gatchaman 2!
I think this fun, bombastic score deserves a fun, bombastic cocktail. I present…
The Gatchaman Bomb
1oz. Dry Sake
1oz. Dark Rum
1oz. Makers Mark
1oz. Orange juice
2oz. Red Bull
Mix thoroughly with lots of ice and garnish with a slice of orange.
