Cool "Free" time and personal music projects

Hello Mr. Powell. Thank you very much for taking the time to come on here and answer our questions. We are very honored for this opportunity and your generosity.

I do hope to and will work toward scoring big-name films or video games, though I'm unsure if I prefer games or film.

However, one thing that concerns me is how busy such jobs may be, and if I'll have time for my own works. I get lots of ideas for new pieces, albums, etc., of my own, and I'd want to have some time so I can work on those too.

So, do you come up with your own, non-commissioned compositions as well? How much time do you have for them during a gig, or is it all work? What about between gigs, do you tend to finish one up and quickly get called or find another, or do you manage a little break period before scoring another movie?

Thanks, any insight from you would be appreciated.

I'm lucky to have too much work so much of my time is spent trying to catch up on things I should have finished. Life is a constantly shifting set of priorities. Either by design or by fate, I will hopefully have some time to start writing concert works again.
