Join us for a special screening and Master Class with The Orville composer John Debney, where he will discuss how they created a thematically composed musical experience performed live in studio to give the show a movie-like feel performed by an almost 100-piece orchestra, wich remains one of the largest in FOX’s television history. Joining Debney for the Master Class will be The Orville‘s Executive Producer Jason Clark, and Music Editor Stan Jones. Debney’s score for season one of The Orville won the IMFCA award for “Best Original Score for Television”.

Set 400 years in the future, the series follows the U.S.S. Orville, a mid-level exploratory spaceship. Its crew, both human and alien, face the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the problems of everyday life. The ensemble series stars Seth MacFarlane as the ship’s Captain, Ed Mercer, and Adrianne Palicki as his ex-wife, who’s assigned as his First Officer.

John Debney is the ultimate film music character actor. In equal demand for family films like Elf as he is for adventure films like Iron Man 2, the Oscar®-nominated composer also scored the poignantly brutal The Passion of the Christ. Debney is an agile jack-of-all-genres, composing for comedies (Bruce Almighty), sci-fi action (Predators), horror (Dream House), and romance (Valentine’s Day) with the same confidence and panache. He is also known for his work in such films as Princess Diaries, Sin City, Liar Liar, Spy Kids, No Strings Attached, The Emperor’s New Groove, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and Hocus Pocus. Debney’s work includes The Jungle Book, Ice Age: Collision Course, the award-winning musical The Greatest Showman, and the action thriller Beirut. Most recent for Debney is The Beach Bum, the comedy feature Isn’t It Romantic, and the upcoming family adventure feature Dora the Explorer.

Born in Glendale, California, Debney’s professional life began after he studied composition at the California Institute of the Arts, when he went to work writing music and orchestrating for Disney Studios and various television series. He won his first Emmy® in 1990 for the main theme for The Young Riders, and his career soon hit a gallop. Since then he has won three more Emmys®, and has been nominated for a total of six. His foray into videogame scoring – 2007’s Lair – resulted in a BAFTA nomination and a Best Videogame Score award from The International Film Music Critics Association.

Debney has collaborated with acclaimed directors as diverse as Robert Rodriguez, Garry Marshall, Mel Gibson, the Farrelly Brothers, Jon Favreau, Jim Sheridan, Ivan Reitman, Peter Chelsom, Rob Cohen, Brian Robbins, Tom Shadyac, Sam Raimi, Adam Shankman, Howie Deutch, Renny Harlin, Peter Hyams, and Kenny Ortega. He was nominated by the Academy for his Passion of the Christ score, and in 2005 was the youngest recipient of ASCAP’s Henry Mancini Career Achievement Award.

Jason Clark is an established and innovative producer in the world of live-action films, CGI feature films and television. By working with a remarkable community of esteemed directors, writers and artists, Jason has helped bring many engaging stories and characters to life. Jason currently serves as the President of Production and Business Development at Seth MacFarlane’s Fuzzy Door, where he oversees production for its current film and television slate.

Alongside MacFarlane, Clark produced the comedy mega-hits Ted, and Ted 2. He also executive produced the successful military drama Act of Valor. On the small screen, Clark served as Co-Executive producer for Fox and National Geographic’s award-winning series Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, and is currently executive-producing the third installment of the series, Cosmos: Possible Worlds. In addition to serving as an executive producer on The Orville, Clark recently produced an 8-part miniseries for National Geographic based on Martha Raddatz book, The Long Road Home.
