Parrots and Dragons and Bourne - Oh My! Master Session with John Powell

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Film composer John Powell has earned oodles of accolades for his scores to blockbuster action flicks (the Bourne trilogy; X-Men: The Last Stand), and four Annie Awards for modern-day animated classics Shrek, Kung Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon (which netted him an Oscar nom). Whether he’s scoring the exploits of an international spy or an anthropomorphic mammoth, Powell brings unforgettable themes and inventive instrumentation to every project he works on. With his film Rio 2 now in theaters and How to Train Your Dragon 2 on its way this summer, Powell will share his unique composing philosophy with respected film music historian and educator Jon Burlingame. He might even unpack a cue or two for anyone lucky enough to be in the room.
