Drew Spence interview with Crazypellas.net Mark of the Griffin Web series

Interview with Drew Spence (Mark of the Griffin)

 

Mark of the Griffin

The Mark and the Mask with questions to ask

Crazypellas.net:
How did you come up with the concept of Mark of the Griffin?
I fell in love with the look of a jet pilot’s gas mask and wanted something similar. It was going to be just an image used across all my music videos, but the concept just seemed like it needed to be fully developed and so, I fleshed out a character that matched the visual.
What message are you trying to give off with the series?
The overall arc with be about the personal growth of Marcus Griffin and his transition into a fearsome avenger.
How do the episode plots get created?
Choice D) All of the above. Sometimes I scout a location and ask myself what interesting thing could happen there. A story could be attached to someone I met with a skill set or unique attribute. And other times, there’s a statement I want to make and it’s about trying to convey an idea using the MOTG universe.
What software and hardware is used?
Pretty much, I use a Canon camera and Adobe’s suite for graphic and video editing with plug-ins by Red Giant to twist the color at the end.
How close to reality is the series?
So far it’s pretty real. As the story moves along, some of the sets and villains will push the borders. We’re going to slide further into the realm of comic book fantasy.
What’s the difference between the comic book and web series?
The web series is very linear and the comic book jumps around in time. In print, I will be taking advantage of the graphical freedom and showing you stuff that would be impractical to film at this point. The web series is more about you watching Marcus Griffin and the comic book is written straight from the thoughts inside his head.
What other stories have you explored?
I created a two-part rap album called Chaos Legion that explores a futuristic Rome and the vengeful quest of a betrayed general. I rhyme as Dynamics Plus- it’s highly lyrical with some ground breaking storytelling, if I do say so myself. Battlestrux is another rap universe which is similar to Star Trek and Macross. The first album is called Year One: Captain of a Starship.

Where are you hoping Mark of the Griffin will take you? In other words, what’s your final goal from the series?
I’d like to be able to devote more time and resources into the MOTG universe. I have so much more to show you. There are short chapters and segments and also a very long story arc. Being able to tell the full story is a huge goal.
Where can we watch and follow the series online?
We have a youtube channel with all the episodes and a website that explains and links to it all.

Do you have any kind of management, publishing or distribution team behind you? If so what are their responsibilities?
I do everything under my own label Dynamica Music. I stay split between creating and sharing my content.

In MUSIC

How long have you been producing music?
I think I made my first record back in 2000, sometime back then. I got tired of paying for studio time and began building my own studio and making my own music.

What influences your music? Do you use samples or compose your music from scratch?
I started off sampling vinyl and still use sample libraries today. Early in, I began to want the source instrument for the sounds I found myself always sampling. That began my interest in researching and amassing production gear.

What software and hardware do you use to make and produce music?
I like synthesizers to create new sounds and keyboards for traditional sounds and familiar instruments. I mostly record everything into my digital workstation as live audio and then edit after.

How do you create across multiple genres of music…Rap, Dance and Electronic?
I’ve been around different styles of music since I was young, so it’s not that hard to wander around between the different vibes. I have a bit of freedom to just make music and then gently push it in a certain direction.

What one tip would you give to other music producers?
As a creative, I think it’s important to love your own work. A lot of artists create what they think others will like. They are being influenced by material that is popular- even though they don’t like it or can’t fully connect with it. It’s following whatever’s selling well or at least out there in a big way. They feel they must do something similar. You can never have true confidence in your art thinking and working that way.

If someone says you stink, they will be right because it’s all about their feelings about you or your art. If you walk in already appreciating your merits, no one can limit your value; they can only offer their opinions. This world is full of No’s; you’d better get your Yes together before sharing or doing business behind your art.

IN CLOSING
Do you want to give a shout-out to anyone?
Wow. So many people have helped me put this together. You know, I’d like to thank you, Iain for taking the time to help spread the word about the Mark of the Griffin. I’d also say check out my music group Fallout Shelter, EDM artist Domino Grey and rap artist Dynamics Plus.

Thanks again Drew for doing this interview.

Dynamics Plus presents the Falling Planets Soundtrack

Falling Planets, the Soundtrack

This is man’s first step into the larger universe.

 

 Our warp drive will open a new frontier.

This is man’s first step into the larger universe.

We will stumble over our humanity.

 

Falling Planets is the soundtrack inspired by the Graphic Novel.

 

 

I spend most of my time hunched over something; it’s either my computer or synthesizer keyboard. When I think about it, it was always this way. – Hidden away in my room drawing up adventure stories about heroic characters from far off worlds. Come to think of it, my music tends to follow that theme too. It makes sense since I used to play music while I drew my comics. The idea hit me to use my music as a soundtrack to a graphic novel. So, you are supposed to read the book while the music plays in the background. That’s the experience I was trying to create.

I actually sat on this comic for a long time. Every so often I would get the urge to read it again and remember how different the graphics were or put the soundtrack on while I worked. It just struck me to put it out, yeah and drop the soundtrack too. While looking for the original files, I stumbled across a video version of the novel with the soundtrack behind it and decided to upload that too.

Story Synopsis:

A team is sent discover the fate of Earth’s first unmanned, warp-drive capable, space probe. They will discover their own humanity… and also be discovered!

Battlestrux was a comic book I began drawing back in high school. The entire saga follows the rise and fall of humanity and our influence in the universe. Falling Planets is the first story I wanted to present and it tells the story of alien contact. Thank you for supporting my imagination. – Andrew Spencer
