Animation: Blue Habits Campaign

I had the privilege to work with Innovage Studios to score an animation for the Blue Habits Campaign, a behavioral study performed in collaboration by Stanford University and Oceanic Society.

Blue Habits are small acts of consciousness that promote a healthier planet, something as simple as bringing your own shopping bags to the grocery store, or abstaining from single-use plastics. Today, more than any other time in humanity’s brief history on the planet, we need to show more respect for our natural Earth, and do more to preserve it for future generations of all species.

I’m really excited to have been involved in the production of an animation, and I hope I get to do more work with animation in the future. Big thanks to Alex Yamamoto for being such a flexible and understanding collaborator.

Documentary: I Will Go Back Tonight

This year I had the privilege of scoring Kara Frame’s short documentary, I Will Go Back Tonight, a moving piece which investigates the lives of six veterans living with post traumatic stress disorder, “a natural reaction to an unnatural situation.” This short documentary is as intimate as it is visceral, delving into the darkness and tragedy of war as it lingers on, pervading the lives of those involved and their loved ones. I urge you to watch and listen to the stories of these men and women, and to give thanks for their continued service to the people of the United States of America.
