About Me…

Feel free to get in touch! I’m open to work inquiries, music conversations, and cat video sharing!

Currently located near Fort Worth, TX

Greetings and salutations! I’m Sam Dillard, usually release my work under “Samo Studios” online (despite only having a bedroom to work from), and my general existence has been divided up between making music, artwork & 3D animation, game design, story writing, and Chinese martial arts. So yeah, basically I have no life.

I am entirely self-taught in visual and musical art; I was drawing from the day my fingers could hold a pencil, learned how to play music on keyboards as a child and eventually figured out how to use computers to link everything together and become a primarily digital artist in my early teen years. These days I focus on producing high quality remix albums of my favorite games, while plotting world domination.

Top Secret Info

Gosh, I didn’t know you cared so much! Here’s some super important stuff.

 

What software I use

Cakewalk Sonar, Winamp, Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere Pro, 3ds Max, Mari, Clickteam Fusion, Notepad++, Secret World Hacking Program

What gear do I have

Just a custom built PC, my twenty year old Roland XP30 keyboard, and some speakers


Will I remix such-and-such soundtrack

Sure… some day

What martial arts do I practice

I am a practitioner of Xingyiquan, Taijiquan, and Tibetan Snake Boxing


Top 5 Games

Super Metroid, Chrono Trigger, A Link To The Past, Megaman X, Starcraft

Top 5 Movies

Aliens, Jurassic Park, The Matrix, Terminator 2, Stargate

Do I have cats

Yes


Do I have a turtle

Yes


What is the meaning of life

Zelda Cinematica- New Preview

Progress continues on Zelda Cinematica and I’m looking forward to presenting it in the coming weeks! For now, here is a short preview of some Wind Waker music from the album. 🙂 On release, there will be both CDs and vinyls available!

Metroid & Chrono Cinematica CDs BACK IN STOCK!

Back for a limited run- get ’em while supplies last!

You can order them from my album page, and each set comes with a digital download version of the album too!

New Site: Updated!

Finally got around to not being lazy, and rebuilding an actual website!

I set up a gallery section which hopefully makes it easier to find all my stuff; I had a lot of songs and videos that kind of got lost in the mist before, now everything is sorted neatly into categories and whatnot. Thanks for sticking around and being patient!
