  • The Lord of the Rings: War in the North – Fell Beast

    The Lord of the Rings: War in the North – Fell Beast

    Here is a cutscene work print with a full sound design and mix treatment.  I incorporated in-game assets along with custom sound design to maintain continuity between the gameplay and the cinematic.  The Fell Beast vocalization was where I spent the bulk of my creative effort.  I made a large suite of specific and wild […]

  • The Lord of the Rings: War in the North – Warg Intro

    The Lord of the Rings: War in the North – Warg Intro

    Here is a cutscene work print with a full sound design and mix treatment.  This is a quick scene that serves to message to the player that their presence is no longer secret. We hear a rustling from off-screen right that anticipates the Warg’s entrance, his snort and howl, followed by his exit back into […]

    Currently working on cinematics for Snowblind’s new LOTR game, also heading up a new project, very hush hush.

  • This is Vegas!

    This is Vegas!

    This is the game that I’ve been working on for the past couple of years. I’m the Project Audio Director, so I’ve got my fingers in just about every aspect of audio, from the macro to the micro. There’s not too much info that we’ve made public other than a round of PR for a […]

  • Evil Dead: Regeneration Game Play

    Evil Dead: Regeneration Game Play

    I was going to post some game play, but someone already beat me to it. Actually, a lot of people did. Here’s the first 7 minutes or so of the game. It includes some cutscenes, menu, combat, and voice systems. Sounds like this was captured off the PS2.

  • Classic Remake

    Classic Remake

    This is one of only two cutscenes from ED:R that is a remake of scenes from the original Evil Dead II movie. Since I’m a big fan of the movies, I really wanted to do this scene justice. I tried to ride the edge of campy and creepy, much as Raimi and Campbell did. Each […]

  • Legacy of Kain: Defiance Cut Scene

    Legacy of Kain: Defiance Cut Scene

    Here’s another cutscene work print with a full sound design and mix treatment. There is a magical “temporal” explosion happening in the background while the foreground is primarily dialog and a few SFX. 5.1 mix encoded into Dolby PLII. The vocal treatment for the possessed Yanus was a variation of the pre-verb technique; reversing the […]

  • Midway Logo

    Midway Logo

    This is my mix of the Midway logo movie. I was asked to create an alternate ending for the HD version of the logo. While I was doing that, I was so annoyed by the over-used distorted swooshes that seem to be used for every game publisher logo I decided to remix the whole thing. […]

  • Sam and Ash

    Sam and Ash

    This is a more subtle mix and sound design example. The graveyard night ambiance is a composite of some field recordings that I did in Eastern Washington. One of the layers is significantly pitched down and the frogs take on a nightmare cow kinda feel.  The music is typical of my eerie mood compositions, with […]
