Hello! I am a filmmaker and composer in Los Angeles, CA.

On The Carl King Podcast, we explore the making of music, films, and the other creative arts. Subscribe on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or YouTube.

I’ve written and directed two animated pilots: The Oracle of Outer Space (starring Dweezil Zappa and Jon Schnepp of Metalocalypse) and That Monster Show (starring Mark Borchardt, LeeAnna Vamp, Joanie Brosas, Dan Foster).

In 2013, I directed a documentary called Morgan Ågren’s Conundrum, with guest appearances by Brendon Small (Metalocalypse), Devin Townsend (Strapping Young Lad), Danny Carey (Tool), and others.

In the music world, my focus is scoring for TV & Film. My biggest influences are John Williams, Danny Elfman, and Fred Steiner. And classical composers like Prokofiev, Stravinsky, and Bartok.

In the progressive rock world, I have recorded many complicated albums under the names Sir Millard Mulch / Dr. Zoltan. My latest symphonic rock album was released in 2017 with Dweezil Zappa, Virgil Donati, Mike Keneally, Marco Minnemann, Mark Borchardt, and others called GRAND ARCHITECTS OF THE UNIVERSE. Check out my Music page to listen.
