The Pattern – Soundtrack Released

ABP composer Tommy Kraft has released the original score to The Pattern, ABP’s first live action film.

The movie was released in May 2010. It tells the story of Robert Bigham, an obsessive compulsive man who discovers a terrible truth while tracking a serial killer. I was very pleased with the score, which I think effectively evokes the style of the old suspense movies that inspired the film. The music also uses patterns and repetition to reflect the themes of the movie.

ABP @ Machinima Expo!

I’m thrilled to announce that Stop, Rewind and Clockwise: Part 1 will be screened at the 2010 International Machinima Expo in November! In addition, Clockwise: Part 1 was selected as one of sixteen Jury Nominees (out of 200 submissions). This means that the film will be judged by the Expo Jury and considered as a candidate for a Jury Prize, which will be awarded to five finalists. The other Jury Nominees will be announced on the Expo site soon.

I have also been invited to give a presentation about my Half Life 2 / Garry’s Mod machinima technique during the Expo. It is a very accessible production method that I hope will be helpful to aspiring GMOD machinima-makers.

We are honored and excited to be part of the Expo this year!
