Back to work! FCU is a web series by Dan Beers- one of the most talented, easygoing, and collaborative directors I’ve ever worked with. (This is our second time working together- we also worked on an ESPN web series, release pending)
This was a lot of fun, as there were plenty of diverse music needs (often the case with comedy)… here’s a walkthrough of the first few eps:

Episode 2 (ft. T-Pain): I produced/recorded the song “Party in My Mouth” for this one, and co-wrote it with the illustrious Pete and Brian aka Russell and Dylan. Pretty impressed by T-Pain’s acting in this.
Episode 3 (ft. Kyle Gass!, TJ Miller) Did a little angelic cue for when “Mirage” is floating around the sky at 0:40:
More episodes coming soon..
