“As the Earth Turns” is NOW available on DVD and Bluray! This will be a PERFECT movie to play on Halloween, that very few people have ever seen.  Ask me about the film and how it came to be. (I am doing virtual and in-person presentations, too)

This has truly been an amazing journey.  Three years of scoring, producing, researching, learning about filmmaking, editing, festivals, distribution, and another persons life and dreams.  Huge thanks to my co-producer, Kim Lyford Bishop for helping make all of this possible.  

“As the Earth Turns” is a tremendous film for anyone that loves silent film, indies (especially filmmakers), Pacific NW film, sci-fi, and the ability of what a 20-year old was able to create in Seattle, in the 1930s with very little resources (and went on to Hollywood and direct an Academy-Award winning documentary).


"One of the most exciting discoveries in the archival offerings of Seattle International Film Festival...This is a festival must-see for fans of classic film. It’s a marvelous discovery."
Seattle International Film Festival


"Had Steven Spielberg been a 16-millimeter camera-toting teen in the 1930s, his home movies might have looked like “As the Earth Turns.”
Michael Rechtshaffen, LA Times


“The musical score...beautifully complements the film and simultaneously sounds modern and retro”
