Animated Interview With Bear McCreary Pits Geek Composer Against Geek Composer

All this has happened before...


Gary Levine plays comedian Richard Lewis (I’m not sure why) in this chat with the real Bear McCreary, composer of modern Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead, Human Target and more. Watch as “Lewis” chats with McCreary about geek life and then presents him with various scenarios of who would win in a fight between the likes of John Williams and Hanz Zimmer. I heart this so hard. There’s also an uncensored version on Vimeo. (If the end bit seems weird to you, it’s probably because you haven’t watched BSG.)
