A Composer's Dream

This short film demonstrates how Howard Shore has distinguished himself as one of Canada's most accomplished - and versatile - composers.

During woodland rambles with his beloved dogs, Shore gives free rein to his ceaseless creativity. Whether composing delicate counterpoint or OscarĀ®-winning movie music, Shore is keenly tuned to a remarkable range of musical expression.

Produced by the National Film Board of Canada in co-operation with the National Arts Centre and the Governor General's Performing Arts Awards Foundation on the occasion of the 2011 Governor General's Performing Arts Awards.
