Jake sits down with Composer and Music Editor, Shie Rozow to discuss his work on “Wu-Tang: An American Saga,” and much more. Sit back and have a listen!
Throughout the past 20 years, composer and music editor Shie Rozow has worked on major international blockbusters including AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, OZ: THE GREAT & POWERFUL and HELLBOY II: THE GOLDEN ARMY. As a music editor, Shie has earned 16 Golden Reel Award nominations, including two wins for CHICAGO and IMAX: DEEP SEA. He is currently the music editor of Hulu’s WU-TANG: AN AMERICAN SAGA and DC’s upcoming live-action series STARGIRL. As a composer, he previously scored the award-winning indie features JASMINE and CAPTAIN HAGEN’S BED & BREAKFAST, as well as John Singleton’s BET show REBEL.
Shie studied at Berklee College of Music where he completed the four-year composer program in just five semesters (“being broke is a great incentive,” he explained). After graduating, Shie moved to Los Angeles where he worked as a composer, music supervisor, and music editor at Alan Ett Music Group (now Spirit Music Collective), overseeing more than 650 hours of music for series including INTIMATE PORTRAIT, BIOGRAPHY, HISTORY’S MYSTERIES, and MODERN MARVELS.
Later Shie became music editor Richard Ford’s assistant, helping on films such as TRAINING DAY and ABOUT SCHMIDT. Shie quickly went on to become an in-demand music editor himself on films including CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, CORPSE BRIDE, THE KINGDOM, and the Oscar-winning drama HUSTLE & FLOW. A fan of superheroes and comics, Shie was also the music editor on SYFY’s KRYPTON, CW’s ARROW and SPIDER-MAN 2 & 3.
In addition to composing and music editing for film and TV, Shie also writes concert music and released his first concert album MUSICAL FANTASY in 2016.
