Watch the trailer for deadmau5’s film score debut, ‘Polar’
deadmau5 is making his film score debut with a new Netflix original, Polar, arriving January 25. The action-packed trailer features the mau5trap head honcho’s “Drama Free” from his mau5ville: Level 2 project, along with crisp audio cuts of guns blazing and tension-filled battle scenes.
Polar is based on the noir graphic novel Polar: Came From the Cold by Victor Santos. Another musical component is found in the film’s Swedish director, Jonas Åkerlund, who is best known for his music video works. Åkerlund won three Grammy Awards for his projects — two with Madonna and one with Paul McCartney.
Joel Zimmerman has brought forward some of the industry’s most forward-thinking arrangements, cinematic in nature. Now he’s ready to show his stature on the film side of things, continuing to build his robust audio repertoire.
