Hothouse score 'Lord Of The Rings' hat trick

HotHouse, founded by highly acclaimed music supervisors Karen Elliott and Becky Bentham, have just completed the director’s cut of the Oscar-winning 'Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Rings'.
HotHouse have also started working on pre-production of the second film in the Rings cycle - 'Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers' which records this Autumn.
Karen Elliott worked with Peter Jackson and Howard Shore, who won an Academy Award earlier this year for the score to 'The Lord of the Rings – The Fellowship of The Rings' last year.
The HotHouse team handles every aspect of film score pre-recording through mixing and final delivery – a first from one company in the UK.
Ms Elliott sid: “To start with such a prestigious and hugely successful project as the Lord Of The Rings trilogy is fantastic. HotHouse is proud to be involved and delighted to work with Howard Shore and New Line Cinema again.
Paul Broucek, Senior Vice President, Music, New Line Cinema, said: “We appointed HotHouse to work with us on 'Lord Of The Rings – The Two Towers', because we have worked successfully with the team in the past. We trust them implicitly to deliver the score on time, to budget and to our very high standard.”
HotHouse provides a one-stop-shop for the recording, co-ordination and supervision of feature film music. As a sister company to production music team Extreme Music and Hans Zimmer/Jay Rifkin’s Media Ventures, HotHouse have preferential access to the catalogues of both Extreme Music and Media Ventures.
Later this summer, HotHouse will launch a film music agency representing an elite group of composers, experiences in all musical genre’s both here and in the UK and America.
