Triple Threat: Chatting With Film/TV/Video Game Composer Christopher Lennertz of NBC’s Revolution
By: Brian Abrams for The Credits
Christopher Lennertz’s composing career has settled nicely across three mediums, making him one of the busiest musicians in Hollywood. His most recent film successes include scoring string star-studded comedies like Identity Thief, Think Like a Man and Horrible Bosses. For scoring TV, his credits include NBC’s new series Revolution, about a family struggling to reunite in a totally powerless American landscape–and we mean that literally, where every single piece of technology, including computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights, has completely blacked out.
Revolution returns tonight at 10pm EST, but it’s not Lennertz’s only major TV credit–he’s also working on the 8th consecutive season of the CW hit series Supernatural. In the video game world, he’s scored the final installment of the mega-popular Mass Effect series, as well has putting his musical touches on Medal of Honor, the James Bond: 007 series, and Gun. Lennertz has also racked up some awards, including two Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences awards for Best Original Score, and an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Music for a Series for Supernatural.
