He can also be seen as the modern day Stu Phillips in the television business due to scoring episodic music for shows whose theme songs were composed by the show's creators ([[Franchise/BattlestarGalactica Glen A.]] [[Series/KnightRider Larson]] for Phillips and Creator/JJAbrams for Giacchino). Also known [[PungeonMaster for naming many of his pieces with awful puns]] and [[ProductionPosse being the usual composer]] for filmmakers Creator/JJAbrams, Creator/BradBird, Creator/MattReeves and Colin Trevorrow.

Added DiffLines:

* BreakthroughHit: It was thanks to his work on the score for ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'' that launched his career into what it is today.


Added DiffLines:

* ProductionPosse: He's worked with Chris Tilton (on whom the terrible pun tradition has rubbed off) on both games and television. Inversely he's part of the JJ Abrams and Pixar posses (specially Creator/BradBird) and used to be part of [[Creator/ElectronicArts EA's.]] Amongst his regular musicians is legendary session bassist Abraham Laboriel Sr.

** He is heavily influenced by the works of Creator/JohnWilliams, as can be heard in his use of strong leitmotifs with complex orchestration. It's even apparent in his incidental music, combining strings with small but precise jabs of flutes to raise tension.

* PungeonMaster: At least half of his song titles will feature terrible puns. A rare aversion is ''Film/RogueOne'', whose titles are sober descriptions just like in the scores by Creator/JohnWilliams. (Although Giacchino and his team ''did'' do some for fun, [[http://i.imgur.com/okvYFcC.jpg which appear in the liner notes]] with a LampshadeHanging - [[ExecutiveMeddling it may have been at the behest of Lucasfilm]]).
