As a huge fan of films like Titanic and Braveheart, I was saddened to learn about the death of composer James Horner. The plane he was piloting went down yesterday and Horner was pronounced dead. I often marvel when these celebrities die, how they are never really gone, because of the work they leave behind. Horner was working with James Cameron on the upcoming Avatar movies, as well. They have collaborated on several films.
“My job — and it’s something I discuss with Jim all the time — is to make sure at every turn of the film it’s something the audience can feel with their heart,” Horner said in a 2009 interview.
