Remote Control Productions is a film score company run by veteran composer Hans Zimmer and based in Santa Monica, California. Originally known as "Media Ventures," which was conceived and founded by Jay Rifkin and Hans Zimmer,[1] the company changed its name after the partners both filed lawsuits against each other.[2] Today, Remote Control is home to a large group of composers mentored by Zimmer, many of which have had successful film scoring careers as part of the company or on their own.

Remote Control Productions has been responsible for the scores for a number of successful films including the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy, the Shrek series, Iron Man, Gladiator, Kung Fu Panda, Mission: Impossible II, The Last Samurai, Batman Begins, Transformers, Hancock, Kingdom of Heaven, The Dark Knight, Madagascar, The Da Vinci Code, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises.

Recently, many composers from Remote Control Productions have worked on the scores of successful videogames such as the Metal Gear series, The Sims 3, Gears of War 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, its sequel, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Crysis 2, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, and Assassin's Creed III. Harry Gregson-Williams, Klaus Badelt, Stephen Barton, Steve Jablonsky, Lorne Balfe, and Hans Zimmer are a few of the composers who have joined the videogame industry.
