I’ve watched this about two dozen times in a row just now with an ever-increasing smile on my face. You’re a wizard, Sam. Truly stellar work…I really couldn’t have hoped for more.
Sam’s work was so beautiful that when I first heard it played with my film, I wept. Sam went above and beyond in his work and it showed. The film…is winning all kinds of awards and Sam’s work is a big part of that success.
You are amazing…I nearly cried when I just watched. I’ve been waiting for the moment to hear the music as it should be, and I think that was it.
Biography

Sam Hulick is a Chicago-based, BAFTA nominated, and NBC News award-winning composer for film, television, and interactive media. He’s best known for creating the signature music for BioWare’s blockbuster sci-fi franchise MASS EFFECT, as well as original music for A WAY OUT, an intense co-op prison break adventure game developed by Hazelight Studios, and the fantasy role-playing games BALDUR’S GATE Enhanced Editions and BALDUR’S GATE: SIEGE OF DRAGONSPEAR.

With a penchant for creating powerful emotions and memorable themes, Hulick’s original scores range from fantasy landscapes and sweeping sci-fi to orchestral bombast, intimate piano, and small string ensembles. Other credits include PBS feature “JENS JENSEN: THE LIVING GREEN,” a documentary film celebrating the life and works of the famous late 19th Century landscape architect, the sci-fi action short HYBRIDS (Triton Films) directed by VFX artist Patrick Kayln (Avatar, District 9) and the Webby-nominated “100,000 Stars” 3D space map developed for Google.
