In October, it’s an Exposed: Inside Film special event: an evening with Bear McCreary, the popular composer for the re-imagined series of Battlestar Galactica, as well as Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Mr. McCreary will be showing clips from these series and discussing how his scores enrich the characters and plotlines of the shows. Warren Etheredge will host the evening.
Award-winning composer Bear McCreary is a classically trained composer and musician who spent most of his formative years in Bellingham, WA. He has emerged as "one of the most innovative and intriguing composers on television" (Film Music Weekly) with his critically acclaimed score to Sci Fi Channel's ground-breaking series Battlestar Galactica. This series has been hailed by Time, Rolling Stone and Newsday as "The Best Show on Television," and won the prestigious Peabody Award. McCreary has also earned his share of acclaim. Both his Battlestar Galactica: Season Two and Season Three soundtrack albums rocketed into Amazon.com's TOP 30 Music Sales on their first days of release, and both were ranked by Visions in Sound as the "#1 Soundtrack of Album of 2006 and 2007" respectively. In addition to completing Battlestar Galactica's highly anticipated final season, Bear is currently scoring Fox's smash hit Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, the next chapter in the iconic Terminator franchise. He also scores Sci Fi Channel's immensely popular series Eureka. McCreary studied under Elmer Bernstein at the USC Thornton School of Music and has composed original music for over thirty films.
