Join us for an in-depth conversation with Netflix composers and music supervisors working in the documentary space.
Award-winning composer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Justin Melland is known for his refreshingly inventive scores for documentaries like The Kill Team, and Dark Net. Justin has enjoyed working with many highly respected, award-winning directors. Twice, his work with Dan Krauss has been nominated for an Academy Award®: For The Death of Kevin Carter, and Extremis. Justin has also worked alongside Oscar®-winning director Paul Haggis and Dan Krauss scoring their film 5B, and Oscar®-winning director Alex Gibney scoring his series for National Geographic, Parched. The Melland-scored film In Football We Trust won an Emmy® in 2017. Most recently, Justin scored the series Wrong Man, and the Netflix docuseries, Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes.
Honored with multiple Emmy® and Annie® nominations, as well as 12 BMI Awards, Kevin Kiner is one of the most versatile and sought-after composers in Hollywood. From creating intimate soloistic guitar music over the grim realities of the Juarez Cartel, to grand orchestral music for a galaxy far, far away, Kevin’s wide musical range has allowed him to take on such diverse projects as Netflix’s hit series Narcos: Mexico, DC Universe’s Doom Patrol, ABC’s Single Parents, Disney’s Star Wars: Rebels, AMC’s Hell on Wheels, CW’s Jane the Virgin, CBS’s CSI:Miami, Netflix’s Making a Murderer, and Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Duncan Thum is a two-time Emmy®nominated composer and multi-instrumentalist based in Los Angeles. A host of sonic explorations lead Duncan from co-forming LAs DIY music scene fixture Pizza! to performance at the Disney Hall with Glenn Branca’s Hallucination City: Symphony for 100 Guitars. Duncan’s muse crystallized in writing music for film, where story and image provide a poignant context for his eclectic background. Notable credits include Netflix original documentary series Chef’s Table, and Street Food, as well as features Brittany Runs A Marathon, Dealt, and The Iron Orchard. In addition to his long form work, Duncan has garnered critical acclaim for his collaborations with Apple and VICE Media.

Sebastian Örnemark is a Swedish composer based in Santa Monica. His recent works include music for the Netflix series Chef’s Table, and Street Food, as well as feature films Meido, Cabarete, and Dealt. He has recorded his music with orchestras in studios that include 20th Century Fox, Capitol Records, EastWest Studios, and Warner Bros. in Los Angeles, City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra in the Czech Republic, the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra in Slovakia, and the Macedonian Symphonic Orchestra. Sebastian is also the founder of CueDB, an online project management platform for film scoring with over 1,500 members and 1,000 films and episodes of TV to date.
Originally from Sydney, Australia, Jasper Leak has emerged as a multi-faceted musician, having worked as a performer, songwriter, producer, musical director, arranger and music supervisor. His break came when he was recruited to perform with SIA on the We Are Born tour in 2010-2011. He co-wrote Free The Animal, and Broken Glass. Both of these albums went platinum, and This Is Acting was nominated for a Grammy®. After settling in Los Angeles and completing a brief engagement with Joy Williams (ex-Civil Wars) as musical director and band member, Jasper signed a publishing deal with Sony/ATV and has been working mostly as a songwriter and producer since 2015. In 2017, a new challenge was offered in the form of a Music Supervisor job on the Netflix documentary Quincy. Jasper would spend most of that year on the project, and the documentary went on to win a Grammy® in the Best Music Documentary category.
