What I did last summer…Part 1

Three music for media projects during my final, thesis semester.

-Animated short film (for a film scoring contest): Virtus Vitae

Clip (not used in the final version) from the opening of a documentary about breast cancer called “Baring It All”

-Commercial/promo spot from C-SPAN: White House Week

I never get tired of these musical geniuses.

Sometimes You Just Need a Little Disney

Not only does it have Disney songs, and they are almost all non-princess songs (I had forgotten how many of those actually existed), they are (or were, since it was uploaded in 2010) very creatively presented by the all men A Capella group, Doo Wop Shop, at UMass.
