Emmy nominated composer, Robert Honstein is our guest this week to talk about the 2021 Peter Middleton and James Spinney directed documentary, The Real Charlie Chaplin. Honstein's Emmy nominated score for the documentary was just released in December of 2023. It is his first film score.

We discuss:

  • Honstein's classical composition background and how that contributed to him being brought onto the project
  • Trying to record for the soundtrack during the beginning of 2020
  • Using his grandmother's slide guitar on the soundtrack
  • Things he learned from film scoring that he has brought into his composition work
