More Bugbaby screenings

Bugbaby, a horror comedy for which I was the film composer, has been a Halloween favorite two years in a row. It has won multiple awards, played at more than 30 festivals, and continues to get more screenings.

It will screen at the Sacramento Horror Film Festival on Oct 14th and at the PollyGrind Underground Film Festival on Oct 20. You can see all the awards and festivals on my credits page.

Home from South Pacific tour

I got good news upon arriving home yesterday from our amazing tour in the South Pacific. First, the album we were touring made it to #3 on the Billboard reggae charts while we were out. Second, Magic Hourglass (one of the many films I have scored for Robert Rollins) had a very successful screening at the West Coast Film Festival 5 days ago. Third, Hourglass will have another screening at the OC Film Fiesta some time next week. What a great welcome home!

Magic Hourglass screenings

There are a handful of new screenings for The Magic Hourglass coming up:

Beginning August 19 you can catch it at The West Coast Film Festival at the Regency theatres in San Juan Capistrano. Beginning of September 1 it will be playing at the Orange County Film Festival.

I was the film composer and orchestrator for the film, and the film score continues to impress audiences everywhere it’s played. I’m very proud of this one!

Composer’s salon performance in Venice

Today I will give world premieres of some contemporary classical pieces for piano and voice at a composer’s salon in Venice Beach. Hosted by Kubilay Üner, the event is a European style salon in which composers can present and discuss the creation of music. The songs are new works by composer Mark Abel, with whom I produced the album Dream Gallery.

Bugbaby plays in more festivals

Bugbaby, the horror short that I scored in the summer of 2010, is turning out to be the little film that could. It continues to get festival screenings and attention, most recently tonight at the Hollywood Fringe Festival here in Los Angeles.

Fortunes Fools production begins

Fortune’s Fools, my sixth film with director Robert Rollins has begun production. I was on set today to meet the actors and hear Bob’s direction, because it’s enormously helpful to my composing process and gives me a little head start. It will be part of  a larger package of movies called Dream Country, and I scored all of the films in it.
