Daniel Robert Elfman is an American composer, singer and record producer. Elfman first became known for being the lead singer and songwriter for the band Oingo Boingo from 1974 to 1995, he is well known for scoring films and television shows his frequent collaborations with director Tim Burton. In 1976, Elfman entered the film industry as an actor. In 1980, he scored Forbidden Zone, directed by his older brother Richard Elfman. Among his honors are four Oscar nominations, a Grammy for Batman, an Emmy for Desperate Housewives, six Saturn Awards for Best Music, the 2002 Richard Kirk Award, the Disney Legend Award. Danny Elfman was born on May 29, 1953 in Los Angeles, California to a Jewish family from Poland and Russia, he is the son of Blossom Elfman, a writer and teacher, Milton Elfman, a teacher, in the Air Force. He was raised in a racially mixed affluent community in California, he spent much of his time in the neighborhood's local movie theater, adoring the music of such film composers as Bernard Herrmann and Franz Waxman.
Stating that he hung out with the "band geeks" in high school, he started a ska band. After dropping out of high school, he followed his brother Richard to France, where he performed with Le Grand Magic Circus, an avant-garde musical theater group, he was never a student at the CalArts, but an instructor there encouraged him to continue learning. Elfman stated, "He just laughed, said,'Sit. Play.' I continued to sit and play for a couple years." At this time, his brother Richard was forming a new musical theater group. In 1972 Richard Elfman founded the American new wave band/performance art group called The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo, they played several shows throughout the 1970s until Richard Elfman left the band to become a filmmaker. As a send-off to the band's original concept, Richard Elfman created the film Forbidden Zone based on their stage performances. Danny Elfman played the role of Satan. By the time the movie was completed, they had taken the name Oingo Boingo and begun recording and touring as a rock group.
From 1976 and on, it was led by Danny Elfman, until 1995 when they retired. The semi-theatrical music and comedy troupe had transformed into a ska-influenced new wave band in 1979, changed again towards a more guitar-oriented rock sound, in the late 1980s.. Oingo Boingo, still led by Danny Elfman, performed as themselves in the 1986 movie Back to School. Additionally, Danny Elfman and Oingo Boingo guitarist Steve Bartek reunited on October 31, 2015 to perform the song "Dead Man's Party" – "for the first time in 20 years to the day", as Elfman said to the audience – during an encore at a Halloween celebration at the Hollywood Bowl. In 1985, Tim Burton and Paul Reubens invited Elfman to write the score for their first feature film, Pee-wee's Big Adventure. Elfman was apprehensive at first, because of his lack of formal training, but with orchestration assistance from Oingo Boingo guitarist and arranger Steve Bartek, he achieved his goal of emulating the mood of such composers as Nino Rota and Bernard Herrmann.
In the booklet for the first volume of Music for a Darkened Theatre, Elfman described the first time he heard his music played by a full orchestra as one of the most thrilling experiences of his life. Elfman developed a rapport with Burton and has gone on to score all but three of Burton's major studio releases: Ed Wood, under production while Elfman and Burton were having a serious disagreement, Sweeney Todd and, most Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. Elfman provided the singing voice for Jack Skellington in Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas and the voices of both Barrel and the "Clown with the Tear-Away Face". In 1990, Elfman composed the iconic orchestra piece, "Ice Dance", for the Tim Burton film Edward Scissorhands. Years he provided the voice for Bonejangles the skeleton in Corpse Bride and the voices of the Oompa-Loompas in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. One of Elfman's notable compositions is The Simpsons theme, which he wrote in 1989. In 2002 Elfman composed the soundtracks for the Sam Raimi Spider-Man series, except for Spider-Man 3, to which he contributed a variety of work on the soundtrack, but did not compose the soundtrack.
In October 2013, Elfman returned to the stage to sing his vocal parts to a handful of Nightmare Before Christmas songs as part of a concert titled Danny Elfman's Music from the Films of Tim Burton. He composed the film score for Oz the Great and Powerful, composed additional music for Avengers: Age of Ultron together with Brian Tyler. Elfman composed the score for all three of the Fifty Shades films. Elfman's film scores were featured in the 2017 production SCORE: A Film Music Documentary; that year, he took over the place of composer in the DCEU's Justice League and was able to reprise parts of his own score from Tim Burton's 1989 Batman for the new incarnation of the character. In 2004 Elfman composed Serenada Schizophrana for the American Composers Orchestra, it was conducted by John Mauceri on its recording and by Steven Sloane at its premiere at Carnegie Hall in New York City on February 23, 2005. After its premiere, it was recorded in studio and released onto SACD on October 3, 2006; the meeting with Mauceri proved fruitful as the composer was encouraged to write a new concert piece for Mauceri and the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra.
Elfman composed an "overture to a non-existent musical" and called the piece "The Overeager Overture". 2017 saw the premiere of his 40-minute Concerto for Violin & Orchestra in Prague, with soloist Sandy Cameron

Fox, Rod Steiger, Pam Grier, Ray J, Tom Jones, Lukas Haas, Natalie Portman, Jim Brown, Joe Don Baker, Lisa Marie Smith, Brandon Hammond and Sylvia Sidney. Alex Cox had tried to make a Mars Attacks film in the 1980s before Burton and Gems began development in 1993; when Gems turned in his first draft in 1994, Warner Bros. commissioned rewrites from Gems, Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski in an attempt to lower the budget to $60 million. The final production budget came to $80 million, while Warner Bros. spent another $20 million on the Mars Attacks! marketing campaign. Filming took place from February to November 1996.
The film was shot in California, Kansas and Argentina. The filmmakers hired Industrial Light & Magic to create the Martians using computer animation after their previous plan to use stop motion animation, supervised by Barry Purves, fell through because of budget limitations. Mars Attacks! was released theatrically by Warner Bros. Pictures received mixed reviews from critics; the film is now considered a cult film. The film grossed $101 million in box office totals, seen as a disappointment at the time. Mars Attacks! was nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation and earned multiple nominations at the Saturn Awards. In Kentucky, a family watches in confusion as a herd of cattle on fire starts running past their home. A spaceship is seen departing Earth and returning to Mars, where it gathers hundreds of other Martian ships and heads back to Earth. President James Dale, along with his aides, addresses the United States concerning the historic event. Several days the President's science aides set up a first contact meeting with the Martians in Nevada, as President Dale watches the development on TV with his wife Marsha and his daughter Taffy.
Using a translation machine, the Ambassador of Mars announces that they "come in peace". When a hippie releases a dove as a symbol of peace, the Ambassador shoots it before he and the other Martians slaughter most of the people at the event, including General Casey, news reporter Jason Stone and Billy-Glenn Norris, before capturing chat-show host Nathalie Lake and her pet chihuahua. Thinking that the Martians assumed that the dove was a symbol of war, the President tells Professor Donald Kessler to renegotiate with the Martians, whose ambassador requests to address the United States Congress. At this meeting, the Martians massacre most of Congress. Kessler begs the Martian ambassador to stop, but is knocked unconscious and taken aboard their ship, where he is shown with his body parts dismembered and his disembodied head remaining animated. General Decker tries to convince President Dale to retaliate with nuclear warfare, but the President refuses. After a failed attempt to assassinate President Dale in which a disguised Martian is killed, the Martians invade Earth in droves, starting with Washington, D.
C. and spreading around the globe. As they attack the White House, the Secret Service evacuates the President, but the First Lady is crushed to death by the Nancy Reagan chandelier and Taffy, the president's daughter, is separated from them during the chaos. After the President of France is assassinated by the Martians that night, the U. S. government attempts a nuclear attack on the Martian mothership, but that proves futile and the Martians continue destroying Earth and start defacing and vandalizing world landmarks. The Martian leader and his bodyguards breach the bunker where Dale has been taken and the former reduces Decker to the size of an insect before killing him; the Martians kill everyone else in the bunker except for Dale, who makes an impassioned speech in an attempt to plea for peace and his life. The Martian leader appears to be moved by the speech and deceptively appears to agree to a truce with Dale, but uses a gadget disguised as a hand to kill him; as the Martians ravage Las Vegas, Byron Williams, a former world champion boxer, leads a small group of survivors consisting of Barbara Land, Tom Jones, a waitress named Cindy and a lawyer to an airfield in the hopes of flying a small jet procured by Land to safety.
They make it, losing the lawyer in the process, but discover a large group of Martians stationed there as they are preparing to take off, the ambassador among them. Byron creates a diversion by challenging them to a fistfight. While he succeeds in killing the ambassador, he is outnumbered and overwhelmed, but Tom and Cindy escape. Billy-Glenn's brother Richie discovers that the Martians' heads explode when they hear Slim Whitman's "Indian Love Call" when he goes to rescue his grandmother, Florence. Richie and Florence drive around town, using the song to kill Martians, broadcast the song on a local radio station. Thereafter, armed forces broadcast the song around the globe, killing the Martian leader and most, if not all, of the other Martians. Nathalie and Kessler's disembodied heads kiss while the Martian spaceship they are on crashes into the ocean. In the aftermath, Taffy awards Florence the Medal of Honor. Byron, who survived the Martian brawl, arrives in D. C. to reunite with his former wife and their two sons as the devastation is being cleaned up.
Barbara and Jones emerge from a cave with some wild animals to see dozens of crashed Martian ships in Lake Tahoe. In 1985, A

In 1958, Margaret Ulbrich leaves her husband and takes her young daughter Jane to North Beach, San Francisco. Supporting her daughter alone, Margaret gets a job painting illustrations at a furniture factory. While creating portraits at an outdoor art show, Margaret meets Walter Keane, selling his Parisian street scene paintings. Soon, Walter proposes to her and they marry. Walter goes to a popular jazz club and tries to convince the club's owner, Enrico Banducci, to purchase the couple's paintings, he only agrees to rent out the walls to Walter. A drunk woman buys it. Walter ends up on the front page of the local newspaper; when Walter goes to the club again it is packed with curious people. Dick Nolan, a celebrity gossip columnist, wants to know more about Walter's art, but is only interested in Margaret's paintings. Afterward, Walter shows Margaret all the money, he tells her they are a great team: she can stay at home painting and he will sell her works. Walter opens up his own Keane gallery, promoting the art as his own work, sells reproductions.
Margaret, however, is upset about Walter taking credit for her art, feels guilty about lying to Jane about, the real artist. Margaret decides to paint in a different style with elongated features and small eyes, so that she can tell people she is a painter. Margaret and Walter move into a mansion. While going through a crate Margaret finds a stack of paintings of Parisian street scenes, but they are all signed by S. CENIC, she claims the paintings as his own. When Margaret confronts Walter, he says. Walter learns of the New York World's Fair and demands Margaret paint something to put on display. Jane discovers her mother working on the World's Fair painting Tomorrow Forever. Jane tells her mother. At a party, Walter is angered after reading John Canaday's scathing review of the Tomorrow Forever exhibit and confronts Canaday. Back at home, Walter starts drunkenly throwing lit matches at Jane, they run into the studio and lock the door. Margaret runs away with Jane. One year Margaret and Jane have settled in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Walter will not agree to a divorce unless Margaret signs over the rights to every painting, produces 100 more. Margaret continues sending paintings to California. Margaret is visited by two Jehovah's Witnesses; the next time Walter receives the paintings, they are signed "MDH Keane". On a Hawaiian radio show, Margaret reveals she is the real artist behind the paintings attributed to Walter, making national news. Nolan publishes Walter's claims that Margaret has "gone nuts". Margaret sues both Walter and the newspapers that printed his version of the story for libel and slander. At the trial, reporters swarm the courthouse in Honolulu; the judge rules that Margaret's statements in the press have contributed to the public idea that Walter has painted the paintings, as such dismisses the libel lawsuit against the newspapers. Since the libel suit only concerned the newspaper and its lawyers, Walter is left to defend himself against slander cross-examining himself as a "witness"; the judge directs both Margaret and Walter to create a painting in one hour to prove, the real artist.
Margaret paints but Walter is hesitant, claiming his arm hurts too much to hold a paintbrush. Margaret wins the lawsuit. Outside the courthouse, Margaret says she doesn't care about money and just wants credit for her paintings. A fan asks her to sign a copy of Tomorrow's Masters and she does autographing her own work; the end credits state that Margaret retired in life and opened an Art Gallery, while Walter continued with his claim that he was the true artist but never produced anything to back this, died bitter and penniless.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (film)
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a 2005 musical fantasy film directed by Tim Burton and written by John August, based on the 1964 British novel of the same name by Roald Dahl. The film stars Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka and Freddie Highmore as Charlie Bucket, alongside David Kelly, Helena Bonham Carter, Noah Taylor, Missi Pyle, James Fox, Deep Roy and Christopher Lee; the storyline follows Charlie as he wins a contest along with four other children and is led by Wonka on a tour of his chocolate factory. Development for a second adaptation of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory began in 1991, which resulted in Warner Bros. providing the Dahl Estate with total artistic control. Prior to Burton's involvement, directors such as Gary Ross, Rob Minkoff, Martin Scorsese and Tom Shadyac had been involved, while actors Bill Murray, Nicolas Cage, Jim Carrey, Michael Keaton, Brad Pitt, Will Smith, Adam Sandler, many others, were either in discussion with or considered by the studio to play Wonka. Burton brought regular collaborators Depp and Danny Elfman aboard.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory represents the first time since The Nightmare Before Christmas that Elfman contributed to a film score using written songs and his vocals. Filming took place from June to December 2004 at Pinewood Studios in the United Kingdom. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was released to positive critical reception and was a box office success, grossing $475 million worldwide. Charlie Bucket is a poor boy; the company's owner, Willy Wonka, has for long closed access to his factory due to problems concerning industrial espionage that led him to fire all his employees, among them Charlie's Grandpa Joe. One day, Wonka announces a contest, in which Golden Tickets have been placed in five random Wonka Bars worldwide, the winners will be given a full tour of the factory as well as a lifetime supply of chocolate, while one ticketholder will be given a special prize at the end of the tour. Wonka's sales subsequently skyrocket, the first four tickets are found quickly; the recipients are a gluttonous German boy.
Charlie tries twice to find a ticket. After overhearing that the final ticket was found in Russia, Charlie finds a ten-dollar note, purchases a Wonka Bar at a news shop. At the exact moment it was revealed that the Russian ticket was forged, Charlie discovers the real fifth ticket inside the wrapper. Charlie receives monetary offers for the ticket, but decides to keep it and bring Grandpa Joe to accompany him on the factory tour. Charlie and the other ticket holders are greeted by Wonka outside the factory, who leads them into the facility. Individual character flaws cause four children to give into temptation and the Oompa-Loompas sing a song of morality after each elimination. During the tour, flashbacks reveal Wonka's troubled past. After sneaking over a piece of candy, Wonka was hooked, ran away to follow his dreams; when he returned, both his father and their house were gone. After the tour, the four children leave the factory with an exaggerated characteristic or deformity related to their demise, while Charlie learns Wonka intended to find a worthy heir to his factory.
Since Charlie was the "least rotten" of the five, Wonka invites Charlie to come live and work in the factory with him, but Charlie declines as his family is the most important thing in his life. Charlie and his family are living contently a while later, he turns to Charlie for advice. Charlie decides to help Wonka reconcile with his estranged father. In the end, Wonka allows Charlie's family to move into the factory.

Warner Bros. and Brillstein-Grey Entertainment entered discussions with the Dahl estate in 1991, hoping to purchase the rights to produce another film version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The purchase was finalized in 1998, with Dahl's widow and daughter, receiving total artistic control and final privilege on the choices of actors and writers; the Dahl Estate's subsequent protection of the source material was the main reason that Charlie and the Chocolate Factory had languished in development hell since the 1990s. Scott Frank was hired to write the screenplay in February 1999, after approaching Warner Bros. for the job. Frank, a recent Oscar-nominee for the R-rated crime film Out of Sight, wanted to work on a film that his children could enjoy; as an enthusiastic

It grossed $296 million worldwide against a production budget of $110 million. For years, Abe Portman has told stories to his grandson Jake about his childhood surviving in World War II, battling monsters and living at a secret home for children in Cairnholm, Wales. According to Abe, the home's children and their headmistress Miss Alma Peregrine possess paranormal abilities and are known as "Peculiars"; when Jake turns sixteen, he responds to a panicked phone call from Abe and goes to his house to find him dying with his eyes removed.
Abe tells him to go to "the loop of September 3, 1943". After Abe dies, Jake glimpses a monster like the ones described in Abe's stories hiding in the forest. Jake's parents sign him up for psychiatrist check-ups, following advice from his psychiatrist, Dr. Golan, the lead of a letter from Miss Peregrine to Abe, Jake travels to Cairnholm with his father to investigate the children's home, whereupon he learns that it was destroyed during a Luftwaffe raid. Upon visiting the ruined house, however, he finds the children there well, they take him through a portal in a cave and he emerges in the year 1940 when the house was still intact. Miss Peregrine greets him and explains that she belongs to a class of female Peculiars called "Ymbrynes" who can shapeshift into birds –in her case, a peregrine falcon – and manipulate time. To avoid persecution and the children hide from the outside world in a time loop she created, accessible only to Peculiars and set to September 3, 1940; this time loop allows them to live the same day and avoid aging as long as they stay inside of it.
Jake is introduced to the rest of the children, including aerokinetic Emma Bloom, to whom he is attracted. Jake learns that he himself is a Peculiar and, like Abe, has the ability to see the invisible monsters from Abe's stories, "Hollowgast". Hollows are invisible disfigured Peculiar scientists that resulted from killing an Ymbryne in a failed experiment to become immortal by harvesting her powers. Led by shapeshifter Mr. Barron, they hunt Peculiars to consume their eyeballs, which allows them to become "Wights", Hollows with regained visible human forms, but with milky-white eyes. A wounded Ymbryne named Miss Avocet arrives and explains that Barron and the Hollows and Wights raided her January 2016 time loop at Blackpool, killed her children, are trying to repeat Barron's failed experiment by using more Ymbrynes. Worried, Miss Peregrine decides to move out with Miss Avocet. Jake returns to 2016 and confirms a Hollow is on the island after another victim is killed, so he goes back to the cave to warn his friends.
However, he is followed by a disguised Barron. Barron reveals that he was about to gain Miss Peregrine's loop from Abe, but his hungry Hollow companion Mr. Malthus killed him before he could. Barron posed as Dr. Golan and encouraged Jake to go to the island so Barron could find the loop. Using Jake as a hostage at the children's home, Barron forces Miss Peregrine to trap herself in bird form and takes her to Blackpool, leaving Jake, the children, Miss Avocet as prey for Malthus. Malthus arrives and kills Miss Avocet, but Jake and the children escape just as the Luftwaffe bomb is about to destroy the house. Without Miss Peregrine to reset it, the house is destroyed and the loop closes, leaving Jake and the children stuck in 1940, but safe from Malthus, killed in the explosion. Rescuing a sunken ocean liner, they travel to Blackpool and enter its January 2016 loop, fight Barron's Wight and Hollow allies, rescue Miss Peregrine and other captive Ymbrynes. Barron disguises himself as Jake; when the last remaining Hollow arrives, it mistakes Barron for Jake and kills him, is in turn killed by Jake.
Before the time loop closes, Emma tells Jake that because of Miss Peregrine's injury in the battle, the children will live in 1940 and that they will handle the Hollows. Jake says goodbye to them as they exit and return to their ship in 1940, while he stays in his present in 2016, he travels back to Florida and relates his adventures to his grandfather, alive and well, as Barron’s death in the beginning of 2016 erased his presence in Florida on. Abe gives Jake a map of international time loops and money from different countries and urges him to seek out Emma. After months of searching and traveling, Jake reaches Emma and the children in 1940. Emma and Jake confess their feelings, start traveling along with Miss Peregrine and the other children, searching for a new home.

Associated Independent Recording
Associated Independent Recording is an independent recording company founded in London in 1965 by Beatles producer Sir George Martin and his partner John Burgess after their departure from Parlophone. The leading independent recording studio complex was founded in 1969. Since AIR has operated its own professional audio recording facilities, Air Studios. AIR's first facility opened on 6 October 1970, it was located on the fourth floor of 214 Oxford Street, containing four studios, a MIDI programming room. The facility included two small ones; the studios contained two Bösendorfer pianos, many soundproof booths, a 56-channel mixing console, custom-designed by Neve to AIR's specification. The company built another recording studio on the Caribbean island of Montserrat in the mid 1970s. In 1986, the facility was described as such: "Recently refurbished control room now featuring 60 channels by SSL with automation and TR and 12 integrated channels by Rupert Neve of Focusrite, two 32track Mitsubishi X850 digital machines and 24track Studer A800.
Digital mixing on two Mitsubishi X86. Comprehensive ancillary equipment list."Jimmy Buffett recorded Volcano at the Montserrat studio in May 1979, naming the album and its title song for the dormant Soufrière Hills volcano on the island. Elton John recorded three albums at the Montserrat studio in the 1980s. Dire Straits recorded their successful Brothers in Arms album between 1984 and 1985. Other artists such as Ultravox, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, Paul McCartney, Marvin Gaye, the Police, the Rolling Stones, Black Sabbath, Midge Ure, Little River Band, Duran Duran, Sheena Easton and Luther Vandross have recorded albums there; the first album cut in the newly opened studios was Real to Reel by the Climax Blues Band in 1979. In 1989, Hurricane Hugo devastated the island and the Montserrat facility was damaged and was forced to close. According to George Martin, The buildings are still standing but their roofs are failing, leading to extensive damage to the floors of the accommodation area and inner part of the studio complex making them unsafe to walk on.
The facility is now a modern ruin, is closed to the public. The buildings are located at 16°44′28″N 62°12′53″W. In 1991, with the lease on the Oxford Street premises coming to an end, AIR Studios took over Lyndhurst Road Congregational Church, a Grade II listed building designed in 1880 by Victorian architect Alfred Waterhouse and located in the Hampstead suburb of northern London; the space was revamped as a recording facility and opened for business in December 1992. AIR Lyndhurst is now a key London facility for classical and popular recordings, as well as film scores, television post-production, dialogue, sound effects and music for video games.
