I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead

I thought I would post a quick update on what I’m currently working on.

Zerk’s Log Game

Once again, I’m working with the amazing Steve Lettieri and the Killer Minnow crew on a game (last year I scored “Inheritance” for them, a Facebook game). Zerks Log: Mission Botacular is set in the universe of the sci-fi comedy webseries—Zerks Log (www.zerkslog.com). It takes place specifically between Episodes 11 and 12. In the game you control one of a series of mechanical “bots”. The bots main task will be to fix numerous cracks and breaches of their starship. The Music is coming along great; each section of the ship has it’s own version of the “theme,” I can’t wait to share it with you! Watch for the game to come out for the iOS platform.

Replaced

This television pilot has been in the works since we did the Tacoathon last year to raise funds. Visionary Heath Vinyard is close to a cut for me to score, I’m looking forward to delving into this Fringe-esque show so that Heath can start pitching it to networks. Look for a score that’s a cross between action and sci-fi, with a darker edge.

Of Teaching Killer Whales Compassion

Director Raphe Wolfgang just finished shooting his short narrative film highlighting homelessness in Los Angeles. Produced by Allison Vanore (Alliecine), this portrayal of a homeless man has been in the works for 2 years. The footage looks amazing, I’m looking forward to getting the first cut shortly. The score will be an ambient soundscape utilizing the guitar.

Whole Day Down

The “Arrested Development-esque” webseries by veteran Tai Fauci recently premiered at iTV Fest in Los Angeles to a packed and enthusiastic crowd. I’m putting the finishing touches on the last 3 of 6 episodes, look for a launch later this month online. The score is reminiscent of French Jazz, with an orchestral twist.

Shelved: The Rise and Fall of 11:11

I’ve known Director Rocky Costanzo for years, and scored his horror/thriller “Amhurst” back in 2008. “11:11” is a film he worked on for 7 years, only to have it fall apart in a sea of drama and deceit in the 11th hour. I was on set in March of 2009 when most of the feature was shot; and I was there while it crumbled. Utilizing hundreds of hours of behind the scenes footage, interviews shot with the cast and crew (including me) and never-before-seen footage from the film itself, Rocky has decided to tell the story behind the story with a feature-length documentary that I’ll be scoring. I’m very excited about this film; I think it’s the closure that Rocky and the fans have needed for years, and I’m proud to be a part of it. Look for more blog posts on the process.

On top of these projects, I’m working on music for 2 television shows, pitching for another, scoring a horror feature in the Summer (Love in the Time of Monsters), and I’ve got another series and short film on the horizon before 2011 is up, along with working in the Story Dept on a major production company show.

Oh, and a wedding to continue planning, a book to write, and a soundtrack release to mix, master and release.

(rereads list) I need some wine. And tacos.
