Director/Producer/Actor Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling follows Alice and Jack living in an experimental company town where the men work for the top-secret Victory Project while the women enjoy the luxury of their utopian community. Frank serves as the corporate visionary and espouses a 1950’s societal optimism that anchors every aspect of daily life in Victory. Life is perfect here, with every resident’s needs met by the company. All they ask in return is discretion and unquestioning commitment to the company cause. When cracks begin to appear in this idyllic lifestyle, exposing flashes of something sinister, Alice must reckon with what lurks behind the façade and the price of this paradise. R | 123mins

John Powell is a composer who wrote music for commercials out of school and assisted composer Patrick Doyle in the early 1990s. He moved to the U.S. in 1997, where he worked on numerous projects for Hans Zimmer and his film music company Remote Control. He co-wrote the score for Antz with Harry Gregson-Williams and quickly became one of the most desirable, versatile, and exciting composers in town. Powell was catapulted into the realm of A-list composers by displaying an entirely original voice with his oft-referenced scores to the first installment of the Bourne trilogy, The Bourne Identity. He has also become the go-to writer for animated family films, scoring such hits as Shrek and Chicken Run (both co-written with Harry Gregson-Williams), Ice Age: The Meltdown, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Ice Age: Continental Drift, Bolt, both Rio films, both Happy Feet films and the first two installments of Kung Fu Panda (co-written with Hans Zimmer). His pulsating action music has provided the fuel for Hancock, Green Zone, Stop Loss, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, and The Italian Job. His music has also sweetened the romance of Two Weeks Notice and P.S.: I Love You. In 2006 his music empowered X-Men: The Last Stand, lent tenderness to I Am Sam, and gripping, real-time drama to United 93. 50 His infectious score for How to Train Your Dragon earned him his first Academy Award nomination.

Throughout his career, Powell also collected three Grammy nominations for his scores, ranging from sci-fi to family animation. Powell has also lent his voice to the score of Warner Bros.’ Pan, Ferdinand (directed by Carlos Saldanha), How to Train Your Dragon 2, and How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. Powell scored Solo: A Star Wars Story, directed by Ron Howard, and the family adventure feature The Call of the Wild. In addition to his numerous film scores of all genres, John Powell has also written concert works for choir and orchestra. A selection of these has been released with the album Hubris: Choral Works by John Powell, including his deeply moving oratorio, ”A Prussian Requiem.”

Holly Sedillos is a vocalist for studios and stage. She played Jasmine at California Adventure and is a frequent new music guest artist with the LA Phil, having soloed under both John Adams and Gustavo Dudamel. Last year she sang with Danny Elfman at Coachella and the Hollywood Bowl, having previously recorded featured vocals on his album Big Mess. Other solo stage highlights include: Carnegie with Christpher Tin, The Soraya with Marco Beltrami, Maria in West Side Story in Finland and with the San Bernardino Symphony, theater festivals in France and Morocco with Cindy Shapiro, and Carmina Burana with the San Bernardino Symphony, led by Anthony Parnther. She has performed on 5 continents and has sung with the Los Angeles Master Chorale since 2009. 

In the studio, Holly just recorded an original Richard Sherman lullaby for an upcoming featurette. You can hear her in Michael Abels’ opening and end credits in his recent HBO doc Fake Famous. She has provided numerous solos for scores by Jeff Russo, Mychael Danna, Jeff Danna, Austin Wintory, Batu Sener, Anthony Willis, Ben Wallfisch, Adam Gubman, and Fabrizio Mancinelli. Holly can be heard on numerous 2022 films, including Nope, Avatar, Disenchanted, Hocus Pocus 2, Shazam!, Dr. Strange, and Minions.

Holly began working with John Powell in 2020, when he became her remote session engineer. Shortly after, he had her singing everything from opera to Swingle Sinsters (Scrat Tales end credits), to the eerie hissing and choking sounds in Don’t Worry Darling, and more. Holly is a proud member of the SCL and SAG-AFTRA.
