New Music, a Full Free Movie and More

I’m well aware that it’s been a very long time since I posted anything substantial to my blog, but there’s a pretty good reason for it: I’ve been busy. Busy making cool stuff that I’ll be able to share with you in the future. Among that cool stuff is a book I’ve been very slowly but surely writing that should be of great interest to any creative people who have enjoyed my writing in the past. As I get closer to completing it, I’ll be posting various chapters and excerpts to finally have some quality new content for you. I’ve also been working on illustrations for a children’s book and lots and lots of music. But in the meantime, I haven’t wanted to half-ass blog posts just to have them.

It was actually a hell of a good bonding experience—kind of like our own version of 'Nam, but we only suffered emotional deaths—and proof that good things can come from awful situations. One such co-sufferer was a gentleman (I use that term loosely) named Brad who led a team with me. We spent many hours playfully insulting our freelancers and talking to each other about the things we actually cared about rather than the work we were doing. For me it was music and this idea for a webcomic I had. For him it was a movie he was writing. I made him promise to let me score the film when it was done, whenever that may be. He agreed for reasons I cannot explain.

Fast forward to sometime in 2014 when I get a Twitter message out of the blue: Hello Sir Evan. You still interested in scoring my film?
