This past month, on June 22nd, Cogswell College hosted the 2013 Fusion Awards, which gave me what is likely my greatest level of music recognition to date. I won TWO awards, and was nominated for an additional two categories!
My wins were Best Music Production for , a track I composed and produced for a console game in development, and Best Game for Wizard Prison, a title I am currently working on in various capacities, including as the sole programmer. (The latter award was shared amongst the development team.)
Worlds Apart, the award-winning animated film created by “Project X Productions” at Cogswell College, is now available on YouTube! I worked as the Music Production Engineer for Worlds Apart back in 2011 as production finally wrapped. My job was to assist composers Jeremiah Dias and Cameron McLaughlin in creating a score that was tailor-made for the film, and stayed true to the director’s vision.
I’ve been working on a good deal of original music this year, and there are several tracks I’ve created that are either complete or 99% there. Unfortunately, most of them are for albums that are not yet finished. I’m not going to give time estimates on any of these, since they are not solely under my control, and are always subject to change. However, I’d at least like to share the names of the albums and tracks to list the “coming attractions”.
This is an example of my graphic design and illustration work. The school’s mascot is a dragon, so I devised my own little dragon character for inclusion with the textual and other graphical elements. I created the entire logo in the span of a week, and added some additional effects soon afterwards. I may make some further improvements in the future, but I feel this is a good state for public display, and I’m happy with how well I was able to execute the creation.
Clark & Dagger has been released for download (free). I worked with Cameron on the music, and also designed the Cogswell Game Dev Club logo that you see when starting up the game (I will post a finalized version of the logo on my site later).
It has been over six months since my last post, so I wanted to give a status update. I’ve laid my hands on a few different projects, including Worlds Apart, the Cogswell blog, “Creeping Forest Stream”, and Clark & Dagger. Details as follows…
