Posted on September 4, 2008 by Dan Goldwasser

Last month, composer John Debney was at the Eastwood Scoring Stage to record his score for the upcoming family comedy, Hotel for Dogs. Based on the best-selling children’s book by Lois Duncan, the film was directed by Thor Freudenthal and executive produced by Ivan Reitman. We’re thrilled to bring you a few photos from the scoring session!
