The Artist's Ludovic Bource gears up for the Oscars

We've been catching up with Ludovic Bource, the man behind the music for the silent film smash hit The Artist, to talk about his recent success at the BAFTAs and his hopes for the Oscars this weekend.

The dominance of The Artist shows no sign of abating at the moment. Not only has it been showered with praise from critics and film fans alike, but it's now cleaning up at the awards, winning seven BAFTAs including Best Film and one for Ludovic Bource's brilliant score.

The film could very well be celebrating once again at the Academy Awards this weekend, nominated for 10 awards including one for Ludovic. He will be going up against Howard Shore's soundtrack to Hugo (the other big contender of the night with 11 nominations in total), Alberto Iglesias' score for Tinker Tailor Solider Spy and two John Williams scores - The Adventures of Tintin and War Horse.

Classic FM's Tim Lihoreau spoke to Ludovic about winning the BAFTA, his competition at the Oscars and his thoughts on future projects.
