For all the racing enthusiasts and fast-paced action film lovers, Need For Speed starring Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul, is out this weekend in theaters. Based on the video game by the same name, the film is scored by Composer Nathan Furst, who also scored Lakeshore Records‘ Waiting For Lightning sound track. Waiting For Lightning, a documentary about visionary skateboarder Danny Way is on a list of action films scored by Furst which involve tales of determination and pushing the limits of man’s capabilities (“Act Of Valor” and “Dust To Glory”). Fun fact: both Need For Speed and Waiting For Lightning involve a helicopter and an amazing stunt.
