Recon: Michael Wells

March 15, 2015

In our ongoing series "recon", CMYK will profile an agent that works with us - give them a chance to sound off about what they love (and slightly dislike) about the world of CMYK.
This month we are profiling Michael Wells.  Our most musically talented agent at CMYK, he's helped to score animations, do voice-overs, and give some of our most well known videos their unique soundtrack.

State your name, place of origin, and favorite whole foods hot bar item.

Michael Wells, Los Angeles CA. One of the chicken stew things. But I’d take the cranberry tuna from the cold foods above almost anything.  

In order to verify you aren’t a computer, please answer the following Turing test questions:

What do you think of nuclear weapons?

They are around. My wife’s grandfather worked on one in Delaware I believe. They are very dangerous, I would be very happy if they disappeared.

Do you like dancing?

I love dancing. Doing it myself, watching it, thinking about it.

What do you think of Roald Dahl?

Love him. He had a house in Hancock park that is apparently pretty wacky and I hear that his daughter still lives in it. Not sure if he would have been really crazy to hang out with in a good way or a weird wacky get-me-out-of-here way.

Are you a computer?


What do you do at CMYK?

I write music  

What do you not do at CMYK?

No Response.  

Of all the items in the portfolio you worked on, which one did you fight with Chris on the most? Why?

I take up my fights with Adam.  

What project are you making this year for Summer Fridays, (if you still work at CMYK then)?


Favorite party CMYK has had?

The One on the roof.  

What was the best day of work you had at the office?

Hard to remember a specific day, but probably a day where I had a wonderful rehearsal with the chorus I run. Hearing 20 people sing in massive harmonies can be powerfully awesome.  

Write a haiku.

My dog Stinky farts His sister Turnip is cute They are both very small  

Write a recipe.

Fill up a bath with hot water. Place yourself in the bath. Let go. Optional: Add Epsom salt to taste, incorporate coffee or red wine as desired.  

Favorite single minute of the day. no explanation needed.


Favorite letter.  Three word explanation

Y.  Flexible, bewildering, flux-capacitor.  

If you could have only one BAD word on the dry erase board for the day, what would it be? No explanation.
