  1. nice.. i’m still browsing around this site without success to find the writer’s group..

  2. Hi Ebuka, working on the score , should match the atmospere 🙂

  3. That’s what you need to hear Ebuka!

  4. Yeah nice work Ebuka. I totally agree with David Nerlich that it’s simple, engaging and leaves you wanting to know what will happen next.

  5. That’s cool to know Nerlich. We’ve to do what best we’ve to offer to bring about a greater series in which the Africa continent is not excluded. The journey must cut across this part of the world.

  6. Nice work from Ebuka. If the goal of an opening episode is to show things going wrong without too much revealed as to how or why.. these do the job well. The characters and action are simple and easy to understand, tension is felt, and I’m sufficiently engaged to wonder what will become of the characters.
