    This was my first feature-length film with director Tim Cox.  With very limited financial resources he created an amazing-looking film that consisted of all blacks and greens and shadows. It definitely gives a nod to the great Alien films with its claustrophobic setting and evil-looking creatures zipping around.

    This was one of the first projects I worked on that had a heavy action component. I had primarily been a nice theme family story kind of guy until I started working with Tim. I don’t know what happened!

    This score aspired to have a giant orchestra but economics precluded that. So, with this film I plunged to the next levels of technology and added three new computers and Giga studios to my rig (a big deal for me at the time) and became forever entwined with the world of samplers and digital audio.
