The Sorcerer's Apprentice

Action | Adventure | Comedy


Balthazar Blake (Nicolas Cage) is a master sorcerer in modern-day Manhattan trying to defend the city from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath (Alfred Molina). Balthazar can't do it alone, so he recruits Dave Stutler (Jay Baruchel), a seemingly average guy who demonstrates hidden potential, as his reluctant protégé. The sorcerer gives his unwilling accomplice a crash course in the art and science of magic, and together, these unlikely partners work to stop the forces of darkness.

Selected Cues

Trevor Rabin brought me in to write additional music.  I got to write some epic orchestra and choir action cues for a several of the film's big set pieces, including a Chinese paper dragon coming to life and chasing our hero through an apartment building, the Wall Street Bull coming to life to chase our hero while the dead are raised from their graves. My work on this wasn't all action cues, I also got to write a few comedy cues.  Loads of fun.
