Interview by Paul Salfen

Alex Belcher quickly rose to fame in the film composer world and has worked closely with famed composer Henry Jackman since 2010. Together they’ve co-composed on feature films such as the recent Netflix action-thriller Extraction, starring Chris Hemsworth, and 21 Bridges which were both produced by Joe and Anthony Russo, as well as the Netflix sci-fi film IO. His first solo venture is composing the score to director James D’Arcy’s new British-Italian comedy Made in Italy.

Currently Alex will be partnering up again with Joe and Anthony Russo as the composer for the highly anticipated Amazon series Citadel starring Richard Madden (Marvel’s Eternals, Rocketman, Game of Thrones) and Priyanka Chopra Jones (The Matrix Resurrections, Baywatch).

With an action-packed pedigree, Belcher’s other credits include writing additional music for Captain America: Civil War, Kingsmen: The Secret Service and The Golden Circle, Kong: Skull Island, The Predator (2018), and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. He has also written music for the Uncharted video game series, and produced Henry’s score for the war drama feature Mosul, also produced by the Russo Brothers.

As a young man growing up in Kentucky, Alex pursued music as well as theatrical acting, eventually realizing that he could combine his love of music and passion for storytelling to become a film score composer and studied at Belmont University and Berklee College of Music.

“What I loved about theatre was the storytelling. Film scoring was such a great discovery for me because, in its purest form, it’s musical storytelling… so it didn’t take long for me to realize that that’s what I wanted to do.”
