15 minutes, Language: English

Toronto born film composer Andrew Lockington is establishing himself as one of Hollywood's newest sought after composers. Before he was established, he assisted and collaborated with another Canadian native turned Hollywood composer Mychael Danna, but Andrew has completely come into his own. Andrew Lockington's newest project is New Line Cinema's live-action 3D feature, 'Journey to the Center of the Earth.' This film is based more on the original novel than the 1959 feature. Andrew chose not to listen to the 1959 score by Oscar winner Bernard Herrmann to maintain his own unique musical voice. He did incorporate a full orchestra with over 80 musicians into his score which runs over an hour.
