RE: EMMY AWARD

Ladies and Gentlemen, I have pretty big news… WE WON AN EMMY! To all of the artists, all over the world that contributed their ideas, writing, music, animation, really ANY kind of RECording: thank you, thank you, thank you!! We all earned this together.

We won the award for Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media in the category of Social TV Experience, which means that the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has recognized our collaborative efforts in making this show together through hitRECord.org.

So thank you to the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for recognizing the efforts of so many who made a show like HITRECORD ON TV possible. While our main focus as a community is to seek validation in the work we do together, it’s truly an honor to have an established institution like the Emmy’s take notice of our collaborative process.

I’d also be remiss if I didn’t thank our amazing network, Pivot, as they took a chance on this show before we even made the first episode.

So I say it again - thank you all!! I can’t wait for Season 2. In fact, if you are ANY kind of artist, come work with us. We’re in production right now, and it’s going really, really well. So come and join us!

Thanks again <3

During some free time a took a crack at composing the music to a short film for Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s HitRECord program.

A flawless MLB All Star Game opening ceremony including music I composed honoring selected teachers. Also music for players as they took the field including Derek Jeter who played his 14th and final All Star Game. 
(It&#8217;s personally rewarding to see the smiles on the players faces as they take the field while my music plays the stadium.)

A Million Ways to Die in the West comes out tomorrow. I had great fun working on this film with composer Joel McNeely providing virtual orchestra mockups (recordings) for him and Seth MacFarlane to review prior to recording sessions. It’s an amazing score in a classic western genre. Go see the movie!

HitRecord short film I scored. Very touching and inspiring film that really ‘spoke’ to me.

Frost Wars-The Rise of Fatty Sparkles, has moved into a ‘closed beta’ stage. Here is a suite of music from this video game. Check out www.frostwars.com too.

A few years ago I learned that Thundercats was getting a reboot with WB and Cartoon Network. I decided to write a new theme for the show for fun. Ya’ know…for fun.
In the process I learned about the original series/theme composer Bernard Hoffer. I liked that he was a graduate of Eastman. But I also discovered how there is a cult following of not only the original series, but the music too. Search youtube for thundercats character themes and you’ll see what I mean.
