    To coincide with the opening of our collaboration section, we wanted to focus on a profession that is rarely promoted: orchestrator. We had therefore the great pleasure of interviewing Jon Kull, who worked with James Horner on scores including Avatar and The Amazing Spider-Man.

After earning Bachelor's degrees in Composition and Piano Performance at the University of Colorado, I got into the Film Scoring Program at the University of Southern California. Along with being a[...]
