Interviews With ‘Loki’ Season 2 Composer Natalie Holt & Cinematographer Isaac Bauman

As we hurtle toward the last two episodes of Loki Season 2, I had the chance to catch up with a couple of the people putting in the hard work to bring the wonderful series to life – composer Natalie Holt and cinematographer Isaac Bauman.

‘Loki’ Season 2 picks up in the aftermath of the shocking season finale when Loki finds himself in a battle for the soul of the Time Variance Authority. Along with Mobius, Hunter B-15 and a team of new and returning characters, Loki navigates an ever-expanding and increasingly dangerous multiverse in search of Sylvie, Judge Renslayer, Miss Minutes and the truth of what it means to possess free will and glorious purpose.

Natalie Holt – Composer

Natalie Holt has been the composer on ‘Loki’ since season one, and we had a chance to talk about what changes she made for season two… and also what it was like being on screen this season (that’s her playing the accordion in the Chicago scene!)

Natalie is a multi-award-winning British composer, and the first woman to score a live-action Star Wars project. Her numerous film and television credits include Obi-Wan Kenobi (Disney+) with John Williams, the Netflix film Fever Dream (Dir: Claudia Llosa), BBC’s Wallander (starring Kenneth Branagh), Knightfall (starring Mark Hamill), Paddington (starring Hugh Bonneville), Deadwater Fell (starring David Tennant) and the award-winning BBC drama Three Girls.

Isaac Bauman – Cinematographer

Isaac Bauman joined ‘Loki’ in the second season, and after the incredible work by Autumn Durald Arkapaw in season one, had the monumental task of making the new season as beautifully shot as the first. Their solution? Change everything! From cameras and lenses to lighting and even the aspect ratio, everything was switched to reinvent the show’s look, and they’ve succeeded in doing an amazing job! In the interview, Isaac talks about that decision, along with working with the VFX, and various other aspects of the show.

Outside of ‘Loki’, Isaac is a multi-award-winning cinematographer who has worked on TV series ranging from Apple TV+ show Servant, and horror anthology Channel Zero, to films such as Deliver Us and The Queen Mary, and (almost) one hundred music videos – for artists including Drake, Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Joji, and many more.

‘Loki’ stars Tom Hiddleston, with Owen Wilson (Mobius), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Ravonna Renslayer), Sophia Di Martino (Sylvie), Wunmi Mosaku (Hunter B-15), Neil Ellice (Hunter D-90), Eugene Cordero (Hunter K-5E) and Tara Strong (Miss Minutes). Joining them in season two are the legendary Ke Huy Quan (Everything Everywhere All At Once), Rafael Casal (Blindspotting), Kate Dickie (Inside Man) and Liz Carr (Silent Witness).

Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (‘Moon Knight’, ‘The Endless’) direct and executive produce ‘Loki’ Season 2. Eric Martin (‘Loki’ S1, ‘Heels’) is head writer and exec produces, alongside Hiddleston and Michael Waldron.

The first four episodes of ‘Loki‘ Season 2 can be found on Disney+ worldwide right now, with new episodes landing Fridays in the UK.
