Directors who scrore their own work...

I just finished watching the second Halloween....besides Carpenter, are there any other directors that score their own films?

Woody Allen also scored one of his own films a long time ago (Sleeper).

What a classic!

But anyhow, I have a lot of respect for a director who scores his own work. Shows a pretty wide range of talent.

I'm pretty sure Clint Mansell did the music for both of his films.

Ha! He attempted to delete it, but it's forever enshrined in the quote of another.

Oh, and Groucho...you were beat to Charlie.

And also, save money on production as well, without essentially employing another composer to score the film.

Alejandro Amenabar did the score for The Others. Eastwood came to mind first though.

It doesn't really qualify as scoring, I suppose, but Mel Brooks has written songs for many of the movies he has directed.

Your forgot the best one: Purple Rain. I wouldn't considered these as movie scores, but as various individual songs being played at random in a movie.

A traditional film score are original orchestrated compositions, of instrumental cues that are inserted, played in the background, which enhances, and corresponded with the activity, or the character's mood being portrayed during a particular scene.
