"Half your billions should go to John Williams."

A subtrope of Production Posse; when a director or other influential individual in the creation of a movie/show/game is intrinsically associated with a particular composer who scores all or most of their projects. Artists and musicians in this type of business relationship are frequently friends, and have been known to feed into one another's creative processes.

This does not include examples where a composer and director work together by being both associated with a single franchise, such as Star Wars. This also focuses on creators as specific individuals who have ongoing relationships with composers, rather than studios.

Please sort examples by director first and composer second, unless specified:
