Yes, yes; I know, I know. It has been sometime since I've been active on dA. To all my Watchers, I apologize. Things have just been crazy busy with real life stuff and with several projects that I've been working on. Projects in which I am add, am finally able to reveal. I didn't want to say anything until after I had something to show for it, which I now do.
The First Big Project that I've been working is a music video with a talented young singer. A rising star if you will. A Miss Kat Bastow (Sound Cloud [link]
/ FaceBook [link]
). I first met Kat through my brother; who past on her contact info; because he felt that she and her band would be prefect for an episode of "Minding Our Q 'n' A" [link]
. So, I interviewed her and her bandmates.
After the interview, I got along with the band and quickly made some new friends. Skip ahead a bit and one faithful day, I was texting with Kat and I mentioned to her that I really wanted to do a film project and asked her if she was interested in helping out in anyway. Kat being Kat, jumped on board and shared an idea that is closely related to her first album, "Echoes Unheard". From her idea and a fair bit of back and forth, we had decided on make Kat's first music video, based on her song, Narcissist.
Over the summer, a great deal of work has gone into this project. Most of the costumes are locked in, the script / treatment for the video has be finalized. Right now, we're looking at getting all the equipment and locations that we're going to need; as well working out the scheduling for the shoot itself.
We are hoping for a Oct 31st release for the music video. Yes, all hollows eve. Which is appropriate considering the nature of the music video. I'll keep you guys and gals posted and updated as the project continues to move along. Look forward to seeing Production Journals and Test Photos for the costumes.
As for the other project. I may also in the middle of producing a web series. A motion comic to be precise. It'll be a mix between full motion and still images, fully voiced, and an original soundtrack. At the moment, I don't have a whole lot to say or share. I'm working closely with a crew of actors that will be choreographing all the action scenes; while working with a fellow dA artist with character designs. Again, I'll keep you guys and gals updated as stuff gets done.
That more or less brings you up to date on everything that I've been working on over the past several months. As you can see, I have been busy. I'd like to get back in the swing of posting new art work on dA and getting all my Watchers involved in the projects one way or another.
