John Powell has composed music for over 50 feature films but some of his most recognizable pieces are from How To Train Your Dragon, Robots, Shrek, Ice Age, X-men, and Rio. A previous member of Remote Control Productions, Powell has collaborated with a variety of great composers such as Harry Gregson-Williams, David Buckley, and Hans Zimmer. Beginning his careering in film scoring, Powell composed his first film score for the film Stay Lucky in 1990. Then, in 1998, Powell co-scored Antz (the first film produced by DreamWorks Animation) with Harry Gregson-Williams. His work is as diverse as it is vast and will provide the ideal background track to any situation provided.
