Richard Marvin
     I'd like to thank Richard Marvin for taking time out to answer my questions and not forgetting about me. :-)

How did you get involved in "Eulogy"?

     Contacted by the director.

Did the test screenings really do in the score?

     No, the company that bought the film for distribution did. (Lionsgate?)

What did the score sound like?

     The test screeners said it sounded like "Six Feet Under"??????

Is there any chance for a CD release one day?

     Probably not.

What exactly was your involvemend in "Breakdown"?

     Socred 6 scenes.

This is a rumor, but were you ever onboard "Terminator 3"?


For those unfamiliar with you and your work, can you tell us a little about yourself?

     Session synth play in the 80's, worked extensively with Maurice Jarre, David Newman, Tom Newman, Mike Post.  Started composing early 90s.

I have to ask -- a very underrated composer is Ken Thorne; how did meet him and do you two still work on projects today?

     I met him through Richard Kaufman when ken was looking for a synth guy to work on his scores.  He orchestrated "Breakdown", "U-571" and others for me.  He remains one of my closest friends.

What future projects do you have?

     "In Treatment", "The Narrows, "Street Dogs", disney action/thriller.

Thank you for the short Q&A.

     Sorry it took me so long!
