Academy award nominated John Debney is considered one of the most prolific and successful composers in Hollywood. His unique ability to create memorable work across a variety of genres, as well as his reputation for being remarkably collaborative, have made him the first choice of top level producers and directors. Debney combines his classical training and a strong knowledge of contemporary sounds to easily adapt to any assignment. As a pitch to redo his website, I took the liberty of creating a set of comps to communicate my vision for the site. I created a new logo along with a completely responsive design approach that is highly stylistic. The site would be ajax-loaded to allow for his music to play throughout the user experience. As far as project pages go, custom static and video backgrounds were envisioned to set the mood for the project. If audio from the score was available, it would be associated with the projects as shown. The lower third of the page allows the user to traverse between projects and view related media to the active project they are looking at. An index/list view is also shown, to be usable in either a vertical or horizontal fashion.
I have stayed busy, restlessly creating one thing or another. This "Black Hole" section showcases some of that legacy. There is a lot here. Best grab a glass of scotch first and then come back and dig in! As far as digital goes, I have spent the last 20 years creating websites and have been a part of hundreds of projects in various capacities, including UX, Design, Front-End Development, Back-End Development, Biz Dev, and more. Use the filter controls at the top of the page to search my credits. For the last 7+ years, I have been working completely freelance turning out websites. So if you've got a project you need help with, give me a holla!
My music has been used over the years in film and television. Chances are you've heard my music and didn't know it. Additionally, I used to work as an actor when I was a kid and have been on TV a few times in different series. This section compiles some of those credits along with any projects related to movies and/or tv. For fun, I also re-score film trailers and scenes from time to time. Since the Black Hole is just for my credits, those little experiements can be found in the "Eye Candy" or "Blahg" sections.
I wish I had more time to actually play them...but at any rate, browse this section for projects I have been a part of which related to games of all kinds, console or otherwise.
This category is a smorgasbord of random other things. Music Videos, Promotional Videos and miscellaneous credits. Consider for a moment that I started out in the early 90s working with my Father doing large-scale murals, set backdrops, restaurant graphics, and all sorts of things. I carried on doing this after my father was hired on at Disney, adding my own clients and continuing to work with some of his until 1998 when it was clear the days of hand-painted things and vinyl were over and it was time to start focusing on digital. Paint is somewhat a lost art but it sure is fun to work with.
