Synopsis: The film centers on Renfield (Hoult), who has grown sick and tired of his centuries as Dracula’s (Cage) lackey. The henchman finds a new lease on life and maybe even redemption when he falls for feisty, perennially angry traffic cop Rebecca Quincy (Awkwafina).


What an amazing week we had at Skywalker Sound recording the score for RENFIELD. Skywalker Ranch is such a tranquil and inspiring place to work especially after all the rain we’ve had here in California. Thanks to Marcus Trumpp and Miles Hankins for their awesome contributions to the score and to my studio partner Buck Sanders. In the booth we had Leslie Ann Jones mixing with Jim Schultz doing music editing and the orchestra conducted by Sarah Hicks. It was also so nice to have my family around for the session, which is not always the case. Thanks to the amazing staff at Skywalker who make each visit so memorable. Special thanks to Josh Lowden and Eva Porter. Thanks to Universal Pictures and Universal Music Group, Mike Knobloch and Natalie Hayden for making our process streamlined and easy and to Samantha Nisenboim and Chris McKay for making such a fun film!
