LENNERTZ SCORING LOONEY TUNES FIRST 3D ANIMATED SHORTS
(Los Angeles, CA) Award-winning composer CHRISTOPHER LENNERTZ scores Fox’s MARMADUKE, a family comedy, directed by Tom Dey (FAILURE TO LAUNCH) and starring the voices of Owen Wilson, Fergie and George Lopez. The film is based on the beloved comic strip appearing in 600 newspapers in over 20 countries, MARMADUKE’s leap to big-screen stardom sees the world’s most lovable Great Dane moving to Southern California, where the “Duke” is livin’ large and enjoying new adventures. After completing MARMADUKE, Lennertz went on to score Warner Bros’ sequel CATS AND DOGS: REVENGE OF KITTY GALORE. Lennertz is currently scoring three 3D animated shorts for Warner Bros; the first features the beloved Looney Tunes characters Wile E. Coyote and Roadrunner. For all his recent projects, Lennertz incorporated a full-orchestra. For the Looney tunes shorts, his style is reminiscent of the classic cartoons of the 40s and 50s. MARMADUKE opens June 4th. On July 30th, Christopher Lennertz will receive a double-billing when CATS & DOGS: THE REVENGE OF KITTY GALORE screens with Looney Tunes’ 3D animated short COYOTE FALLS both scored by Lennertz. Both MARMADUKE and CATS AND DOGS 2 will be released on Varese Saraband.
Lennertz’s musical talents transcend from film to TV to videogames. His score for the CW’s SUPERNATURAL earned him an Emmy nomination, and he received the Interactive Achievement Award for his score to MEDAL OF HONOR: RISING SUN, which he recorded in Hollywood with an 80 piece orchestra. Additional film, TV and videogame credits include: SOUL PLANE (collaborating with RZA from the Wu-Tang Clan), Fox’s ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS, TORTILLA HEAVEN (collaborating with Ozomatli), Fox’s BRIMSTONE, THE SIMPSONS GAME (nominated for Best Action Game at the 1UP Awards); and MTV’s TOUGH ENOUGH which appeared on the Billboard’s Top 100 charts for weeks. Lennertz’s powerful, full orchestral score for the Stephen Spielberg-created videogame, MEDAL OF HONOR: RISING SUN, led him to score more MEDAL OF HONOR games as well as the popular JAMES BOND videogame. Christopher Lennertz’s upcoming projects include a new videogame project and The Concert for Haiti -- An orchestral concert piece combining original Lennertz music with many other leading film composers.
