Zimmer's passions also lie in activism—from big endeavors such as his score to the South African anti-apartheid film The Power of One, where he was able to expose local musicians to a larger audience, to making a daily difference with his company, where he works tirelessly to keep his staff employed in a down market. 

"Film and music have the power to open people's eyes," he says. "Especially with what is going on in the United States currently, people need to be activated and see what is happening with the economy and our healthcare system."
Next up for Zimmer is the score to Christopher Nolan's Inception. He won't say much about it, as it's under wraps, but knowing Zimmer, it is sure to inspire.
