Edgar Wright is a director, screenwriter, producer and actor hailing from Poole in Dorset, England, known for his fast-paced editing style, wry sense of humor and parodying cinematic tropes. A fan of action movies, Wright likes to synchronize music to the kinetic movement he depicts on screen, and his best-loved films – all of which have more than a few moments of rousing musical impact – include 2004’s zombie horror mash-up Shaun of the Dead, 2010’s bittersweet Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and 2013’s The World’s End. Wright’s latest movie, the star-studded Baby Driver, sees him once again flipping familiar tropes, and it became the surprise summer blockbuster of 2017, propelled by the protagonist’s beloved iPod. This talk, part of Red Bull Music Academy’s Director’s Series, will touch on Wright’s ideas about music in film and his longstanding creative partnerships.
