New Predator Film Composer Got the Job Thanks to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
Sarah Schachner’s work on Valhalla really struck a chord with the director of Prey.
Prey director Dan Trachtenberg has revealed that one of the reasons the film‘s composer, Sarah Schachner, was hired was due to her previous work on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
Trachenberg reveals this in a tweet on his personal Twitter account (thanks Kotaku), explaining that he first heard Schachner’s music in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla while preparing for the film in Calgary. Schachner has composed for a handful of large-scale releases like Assassin’s Creed Unity, Origins, and Valhalla, as well as titles like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Infinite Warfare, and Anthem.
“When we were preparing the movie in Calgary, I was playing AC Valhalla and I was like, ‘well, this music is unbelievably beautiful. Who did that?” explains Trahctenberg. “The answer is Sarah Schachner. You will listen to it a lot in the future, I promise you…”
Schachner was undoubtedly cast as Prey’s composer for reasons other than her work on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, as she also has a pretty impressive resume in film and TV. His latest work on Prey is actually out very soon as the movie will be streaming on Disney Plus on August 5th. If you watch the movie and really like Schachner’s music, the movie soundtrack will also be available for download on the same day.
