Geektown Radio 205: 'Long Shot' Co-Composer Miles Hankins, UK TV News & Air Dates!

We are back to a somewhat normal show on the Geektown Radio podcast. I'm joined by Darryl from Hollywood News Source to review the week's tv and discuss the trailers from the US TV Upfronts. We also have an interview with Miles Hankins, co-composer of Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron’s latest movie 'Long Shot'.

Miles Hankins, award-winning composer, orchestrator, and music producer, boasts a diverse body of work spanning the entertainment industry. Based in Los Angeles, his lifelong passion for sound, the moving image, and musical narrative have earned him a reputation as a dedicated craftsman in the storytelling process.

Miles often works alongside Oscar-nominated composer Marco Beltrami, with the duo creating music for several projects including 'A Quiet Place' (nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Original Score), Marvel’s 'Fantastic Four', 'The Shallows', and Universal’s 'The Snowman'. His latest collaboration with Beltrami was for the Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron comedy 'Long Shot'. This is Miles' second collaboration with 'Long Shot' director Jonathan Levine and Beltrami, the first being 'The Night Before' starring Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie.

'Long Shot' follows Fred Flarsky (Seth Rogen), a gifted and free-spirited journalist with an affinity for trouble. Charlotte Field (Charlize Theron) is one of the most influential women in the world. Smart, sophisticated, and accomplished, she’s a powerhouse diplomat with a talent for…well, mostly everything. The two have nothing in common, except that she was his babysitter and childhood crush. When Fred unexpectedly reconnects with Charlotte, he charms her with his self-deprecating humour and his memories of her youthful idealism. As she prepares to make a run for the Presidency, Charlotte hires Fred as her speechwriter, much to the dismay of her trusted advisors. A fish out of water on Charlotte’s elite team, Fred is unprepared for her glamorous lifestyle in the limelight. However, sparks fly as their unmistakable chemistry leads to a round-the-world romance and a series of unexpected and dangerous incidents.

Miles recently received a Sports Emmy nomination for Outstanding Music Direction for the HBO documentary, 'Being Serena', and will be honoured at the NY ceremony on 20th May 2019.
