tims-vermeerConrad Pope is the composer of the upcoming documentary Tim’s Vermeer. The film is directed by Teller of Penn & Teller fame and follows Tim Jenison, a Texas based inventor, as he attempts to solve the mystery of how 17th century Dutch Master Johannes Vermeer (Girl with a Pearl Earring) managed to paint so photo-realistically,150 years before the invention of photography. The movie chronicles Jenisen’s decade-long journey, including a trip to Delft, Holland, where Vermeer painted his masterpieces, a pilgrimage to the North coast of Yorkshire to meet artist David Hockney and eventually a trip to Buckingham Palace, to see the Queen’s Vermeer. Teller’s stage partner Penn Jillette and Farley Ziegler are producing the project. Pope’s previous credits as a composer include 2011’s My Week with Marilyn and 2001’s Pavilion of Women. He is also known as an orchestrator for such A-list composers as John Williams, James Horner, Alexandre Desplat, James Newton Howard and Alan Silvestri. Tim’s Vermeer is set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September and has just been acquired by Sony Pictures Classics and is set for a theatrical release in 2014.
