"Official" music video link

Despite having a few things in the video that we were tempted to go back and fix, we (and the band) decided to push the music video live on Youtube.

Here's the link.  We're going to try and get as many eyeballs on it as possible, so please forward the link around to your Bush-loving buddies!

Music Video Production: Part 4

*NOTE:  Video privacy settings were set to not allow embedding.  That should be fixed now.

Done.

And I can't tell you how relieved I am.

I was planning on writing up this blog with more production notes, photos, and videos...but I'm exhausted.  We presented the video to the class, guests and client yesterday afternoon.  It was well received.

There are a few glitches and some bugs that we would have fixed had we had more time.  Perhaps we'll go back and fix those if the band ever want...Read more

Music Video Production: Part 3

The past few days have been busy and hectic as we had to turn in our "fine cut" on Saturday.  There was as whirlwind of productivity to make the deadline, but it came out well and I think we're on track to finish on time.  Still a bunch of elements to fit in and a lot of fine tuning.

Here's another screen shot of one of the pages from the pop up book.  Bush and Cheney go hunting!

As I said before, there were a lot of asset to be built for this project.  Some included sketches which developed into inked illustrations, which were then scanned and edited digitally for animation.

We needed a fish:

Music Video Production: Part 1

The past 3 weeks have been completely consumed with my current school project:  a music video.  We are a team of three students and we have a total of 5 weeks to go from concept to final product.

We were assigned to a local artist named Alexis Harte.  The song is called "President" and it's a humorous jab at President Bush.  I'll have to admit, if we had not been assigned to Alexis, I might never have heard Read more

a study break mix for me and you

school has got my mind twisted up in a knot and study breaks have been a necessity. just recorded this at 11pm. no monitors, mixed in my headphones.  all cds.  one take.

starts minimal techy, starts pumping, gets dirty and crunchy, ends on a proggy note.

People's Republic of Capitalism.

for those of you who have traveled to China (and even those who haven't), there's a program on Discovery that examines the intricate relationship that the United States has with China on a economic/global trade basis. 

from what i've seen so far, the program is fairly well balanced.

part one is on right now.  part two is tomorrow night.  part of a four part series.

a different take on things

just finished up another term here and that means two final projects in the can.  the past few weeks have been incredibly busy for me.  i think in one week i was in the computer lab 60-80 hours.  partially due to time mismanagement on my part.  partially due to some challenges in the project developing in way that i hadn't quite planned for.

i should take this moment to thank my buddy Drake for unknowingly providing much of the inspiration...Read more
