Our second episode of "All Access" finds us sitting with composer Heitor Pereira in his studio. We cover his approach to his colorful score to the worldwide sensation Minions, and how he tried to deconstruct his melodies from Despicable Me 1 & 2. Beyond that, Heitor shares how he immigrated to the USA via a boat from Brazil all the way to New York City to begin his musical path. Other topics include his love for melodies, working with a temp, trying to break into other genres, and every angle of his unique approach to scoring. Heitor even breaks out a guitar to demo his melodic improvisation. We discuss the importance of hard work and support from the people around us, turning your inspiration into inspiration for others and so much more. Heitor is one of the most fun and passionate people in the world, and this in-depth and fascinating conversation opens up his world to us.
