Recording Connection grad completes apprenticeship at Hans Zimmer’s Remote Control Productions
Recording Connection apprentice (extern) Robert Wiley recently got the opportunity work at Hans Zimmer music production company Remote Control Productions. Robert worked in on some of their top-secret productions. While he was working out of their office Remote Control was putting together projects like Batman V Superman, Interstellar, and Madagascar 3.
Robert even got to work on the soundtrack for Chicago PD. The fact that someone in Robert’s position, just a student, would be given the opportunity to work on a soundtrack for a show before graduating is a big deal. He’s gaining real world experience in a hands-on manner. He’s taking these experiences and turning them into a career.
Robert’s mentor Donny Baker set up this experience for him so that he could get a glimpse into what working in the big leagues is really like. Despite running a successful production company himself, Donny knew that there’s really only one way to show someone what the Hollywood system looks like. Put them in it.
