Hans Florian Zimmer was born in Frankfurt am Main, then in West Germany, the son of Brigitte (Weil) and Hans Joachim Zimmer. He entered the world of film music in London during a long collaboration with famed composer and mentor Stanley Myers, which included the film My Beautiful Laundrette (1985).

His iconic theme "Journey to the Line" from The Thin Red Line (1998) is heavily used in trailers and various other media. This theme was born out of trial and error. Terrence Malick, the director of The Thin Red Line (1998) had been dissatisfied with Zimmer's results and had him continuously rework melodies and come up with various approaches. Thus "Journey to the Line" was finally born. Many of his latter scores would go on to bear an uncanny resemblance to this classic Thin Red Line theme.

He pushes collaboration between composers because that is how he learned. Every composer that has come out of Media Ventures learned by working with him on various scores by conducting, writing additional music, or even co-composing with him. Harry Gregson-Williams, John Powell, Mark Mancina, Klaus Badelt and Steve Jablonsky are just a few composers who are now doing solo work after expanding from Media Ventures.

Hans Zimmer's score for The Thin Red Line (1998) would inform the direction he would take in style for the rest of his career. Many directors (especially Christopher Nolan) would employ him based on their love for The Thin Red Line (1998) and the desire for its similar ambiance. More specifically based on the track "Journey to the Line". Ironically, with the exception of "Journey to the Line", most of Zimmer's score did not make the final cut of The Thin Red Line (1998) What was used was often sampled with various other music chosen by Malick to create an intricate work that is often mistakenly credited to Zimmer.
