Sunday, April 12th, 2009

On Thursday April the Second in the Year Two-Thousand and Nine, it was writ and entered into the annals of history that I won a composer award in the 10th Annual First Boards Awards for my work with MassiveMusic!

The First Boards Awards “celebrates the international industry’s top emerging talent from a series of categories including director, editor, composer, designer, animator and agency producer”. The event is hosted by Boards Magazine which is the leading industry publication about the international business of commercial production. Its read monthly by over 13,000 agency producers, creatives, production and post-production company executives, artisans, reps and I have an interview and profile in the April issue! You can read or download that here. The other finalists are some awesomely badass peoples including Director Nima Nourizadeh (Flight of the Conchords, ADIDAS House Party commercial(which MassiveMusic also did the licensing for), Trish Sie (who directed the Ok Go music videos on the treadmills) and a ton of other amazing Editors, Animators, and Graphic Artists! I am flattered and honored to be included in this group! (you can check out all the winners here).

A huge thank you to Boards Magazine, all of the judges, MassiveMusic and to YOU for reading this!

(a very thankful)
