An interesting fact, Zimmer has no academic training. After a few lessons given by his piano teacher he decided not to attend the lessons as Hans was more concerned with improvisation than studying formally. As a young man, Zimmer moved to England where he went through some difficult years. He was active in a number rock bands; one of the most famous groups in which Zimmer played was the group founded in 1977 called Buggles, which produced the video named “Video Killed the Radio Star” (1979), and was engaged in various musical spheres which later gave him a lot of advantages while being active in the film industry.

Zimmer started composing for films in a productive collaboration with another composer, Stanley Myers. It was a very successful start which evolved into an outstanding career which brought not only fame but also wealth. In 1988, he began his solo career in the film industry, debuting with the music for the film “Rain Man” (1988), for which he received his first nomination for an Academy Award. In the ’90s, Zimmer wrote the music for several successful films, such as “The Lion King” (1994), “The Thin Red Line” (1998) and “Gladiator” (2000). “The Last Samurai” (2003) directed by Edward Zwick was the hundredth film for which he wrote the music. On the whole, his composing for over 150 feature films has added significant revenues to his net worth, as well as made Hans Zimmer famous.

Aside from the Academy Award, Hans Zimmer won two Golden Globe Awards, three Classical BRIT Awards, four Satellite Awards, three Saturn Awards, two WAFCA Awards, four Grammy Awards and many others, and in 2010, he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

In addition, Zimmer has his own record company named Remote Control Productions. Initially, together with Jay Rifkin they owned the company Media Ventures, located in Los Angeles. The record companies have also increased the outright size of Hans Zimmer net worth.

Finally, in the personal life of the composer, Hans Zimmer was married to Vicki Carolin(1982-92) with whom he has a son. He is now married to Suzanne with whom he has three children. The family resides in Los Angeles.

Interesting Facts

#Fact
1Hans Zimmer's score for The Thin Red Line (1998) would inform the direction he would take in style for the rest of his career. Many directors (especially Christopher Nolan) would employ him based on their love for The Thin Red Line (1998) and the desire for its similar ambiance. More specifically based on the track "Journey to the Line". Ironically, with the exception of "Journey to the Line", most of Zimmer's score did not make the final cut of The Thin Red Line (1998) What was used was often sampled with various other music chosen by Malick to create an intricate work that is often mistakenly credited to Zimmer.
2He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6908 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on December 8, 2010.
3Was included on the list of "Top 100 Living Geniuses" published by The Daily Telegraph (2007).
4Was nominated for Film Composer of the Year in 2006 by the International Film Music Critics Association (IFMCA).
5Was nominated for a Tony Award for Original Musical Score in 1998 alongside Elton John, Tim Rice, Lebo M., Mark Mancina, Jay Rifkin and Julie Taymor for their work on the musical version of The Lion King (1994).
6He told in an interview that he would retire for some years after The Dark Knight (2008), saying he has been exhausted in the past years. He also said that he wants to help young composers and would produce their scores. His future plan is also about touring the world holding concerts with his own music.
7He pushes collaboration between composers because that is how he learned. Every composer that has come out of Media Ventures learned by working with him on various scores by conducting, writing additional music, or even co-composing with him. Harry Gregson-Williams, John Powell, Mark Mancina, Klaus Badelt and Steve Jablonsky are just a few composers who are now doing solo work after expanding from Media Ventures.
8Completely self-taught, he learned everything he knows through collaboration and experimenting.
9The reason why he was chosen for the movie Lauras Stern (2004), was because, in an interview, he said that he feels that German producers forgot him for composing to a German language movie. One of the producers read the interview and he immediately asked him to do the movie.
10Fans and industry insiders in the film music world credit Crimson Tide (1995) as a turning point in both his career and the scoring business. The Grammy-winning score, often heard in trailers since, was a departure from the norm, making use of digital synthesizers, electronic keyboards, and the latest computer technology to digitally produce a rousing score with traditional orchestral arrangements.
11His favorite movie theme of all time is from Assault on Precinct 13 (1976) by John Carpenter.
12He wrote music for a a 4-minute Maybach commercial.
13His iconic theme "Journey to the Line" from The Thin Red Line (1998) is heavily used in trailers and various other media. This theme was born out of trial and error. Terrence Malick, the director of The Thin Red Line (1998) had been dissatisfied with Zimmer's results and had him continuously rework melodies and come up with various approaches. Thus "Journey to the Line" was finally born. Many of his latter scores would go on to bear an uncanny resemblance to this classic Thin Red Line theme.
14Inspired by Ennio Morricone's The Mission (1986).
15The Last Samurai (2003) marked his 100th score.
16Gladiator (2000) became into one of the best selling film score albums of all time.
17Hans' longtime business partner, Jay Rifkin, filed a $10 million suit against him for conspiring to take business for himself. Because of this lawsuit, Media Ventures changed its name to Remote Control. [December 2003]
18Co-founder (with Jay Rifkin) of Santa Monica-based music studio Media Ventures (now Remote Control), which has housed composers Mark Mancina, Harry Gregson-Williams, Rupert Gregson-Williams, Nick Glennie-Smith, John Powell, Klaus Badelt, Steve Jablonsky, Geoff Zanelli, Jeff Rona, Jim Dooley, Henning Lohner, James S. Levine, Mel Wesson, and several other composers from all over the world.
19Last name means 'room' in German.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on his score for The Lion King (1994)] The main emphasis to me was how we were going to get, in a children's movie, to the idea that a father dies and make it an emotional yet not horrifying experience but make it something that children might want to start asking some questions about. It's very simple. It's my point of view because my dad dropped dead when I was six and I had nobody to talk to about it. So, it's a very personal sort of thing.
2When you write a theme one of the things you want to do is you want to see how much life it really has. How many possibilities there are. Can it speak to you in joy? Can it speak to you in sorrow? Can it be love? Can it be hate? Can you say all these things with just a few notes? That's the thing when you figure out if a tune is any good or not. Does it have more than one shallow little character? Does it have just one little thing to tell you. Can it get underneath there under your skin? Can it get dark? Can it talk about the death of a father or something like that.
3If the secret should be known, which is not much of a secret at all, this is my hobby I love doing this. Anything else feels like work to me.
4[on his score for The Lion King (1994)] I thought how do we deal with in a children's movie the idea that a father dies and make an emotional yet not horrifying experience. And it's very simple. It's my point of view because my dad dropped dead when I was six. I had nobody to talk to about it.
5[on his score for The Lion King (1994)] I'd never written for talking fuzzy animals before. I knew how to write to human emotions but these were animals. It took me a while to sort of get over that and do what you do which is just treat them like human characters.
6I am not saying it is a bad movie or good movie, but it is an odd movie. All of the music was written before Terry would edit a scene. That was just how he wanted to work. It was a very odd way of working for me, because I had to lead the charge up the hill all the time. It gets a little daunting.
7[on his previous Batman scores] Nobody ever mentions the Elliot Goldenthal scores. And of course, I'm not mentioning any of that either, because quite honestly I didn't go and look at the old Batman movies again.
8[on his score for Batman Begins (2005)] I think this one has more electronics in it than anything else. I didn't want to do straight orchestra because Batman, he's not a straight character. I mean where do you get those wonderful toys from and the technology? So I thought I could embrace a bit more technology in this one... there isn't a straight orchestral note on this score.
9[on his score for Hannibal (2001)] This is the best love theme I've ever written, I keep telling everyone this is a romantic comedy, but nobody believes me.
10You have to remain flexible, and you must be your own critic at all times.
11If something happened where I couldn't write music anymore, it would kill me. It's not just a job. It's not just a hobby. It's why I get up in the morning.
12I don't drive, so one of my assistants drives me to my writing room, and I have a calendar on the wall telling me how much time I have left, and how far behind I am. I look at it and panic, and decide which scene to work on. And you sit there plonking notes until something makes sense, and you don't think about it any more. Good tunes come when you're not thinking about it.
13I wake up around noon, light a cigarette, get a cup of coffee, sit in the bathtub for an hour and daydream, and I usually come up with some ideas... It's a very irresponsible life. The only decisions I make are about the notes I'm writing.
14I have all these computers and keyboards and synthesizers, and I rattle away. For instance, with The Lion King (1994), I wrote over four hours' worth of tunes, and they were really pretty - but totally meaningless. So in the end I came up with material I liked. We worked on The Lion King for four years, but I wasn't toying until the last three-and-a-half weeks properly. On Crimson Tide (1995), on the other hand, I just went in and within seconds I knew what I wanted.
