Now Playing Tracks


Boxing ring is done. Now to film the dancers. Turning out pretty good!

blackredandwhite asked:

I am extremely interested in purchasing sheet music for the orchestral arrangement of Brodyquest. I am wondering if this would have to be done through you or Neil Ciciereiga?

If Neil is cool with it then so am I. He’s the composer, I’m just the arranger. On my FAQ I say I can’t sell sheet music simply because major label publishers aren’t as approachable as independent musicians.

I also have more fun arranging independent music because

1.) they’re easier to work with

2.) are more appreciative of royalties

3.) they write better music.

Neil’s contact info is on his site.

Above is a screenshot from yesterday’s rehearsal. Today I thought about what I did wrong:

1.) I should have built the poles better (you can see one of them broke in the back)
2.) My choreography instructions were too vague
3.) The green boxing gloves clash with the greenscreen in the background. However, Little Mac’s boxing gloves are green in the videogame, so I may use a Blue Screen for chroma-keying.
4.) Rather than sending emails and video to the choreographer, I should have met up multiple times to make sure everything was pitch perfect way in advance before the dancers arrived.
5.) Camera height and lighting. I’m considering a budget-concious 3-point lighting system.

This project means a lot to me. I may put the group dance on hold because I learned a lot yesterday now that I’m looking at the tape. I came up with a few more ideas this afternoon which will solve a lot of issues for me.

Everyone’s encouragement to continue this project and not to give up has been a big help this morning. I think it’s worth a second chance - a “Round 2”, perhaps.
