OBT Music Wins National Emmy

OBT Music and Tom Phillips scored the 2009 Outstanding Science and Nature Documentary Emmy winning film "5 Years on Mars", a National Geographic Channel film produced by veteran filmmaker Mark Davis. The film covers the two Mars Rovers, Opportunity and Spirit, that have lasted over 5 years, 4 and a half years longer than they were expected to last. The music score was about 25% straight from the library, 25% adapted from the library, and 50% originally composed. All of the originally composed pieces are now in the library, mostly in the Science Fiction and Film Score > Contemporary categories.
