    Behind the scenes on my current project (photos...56K probably not)

    sponsored links


    ***Advertisments***
    Hey all...I have been busy the past week working on my latest project. I am producing an independant film with a friend of mine (Tim Garrick) who is directing. This is my first venture into producing, and his into directing. He is already an established writer and I of course, a composer. The independant, festival bound comedy short is called RUN LENi RUN and is a comedy spoof on the German film RUN LOLA RUN. Tim wrote the script and I will compose the music as well. We have been completely amazed at the wonderfully talented crew and their amazing positive attitudes (sometimes a rarity in Hollywood). It has overall been a very pleasant experience.

    Here are some behind the scenes shots I thought maybe you all might enjoy. I know that I have enjoyed this process...working on the project from its beginning and now on the set is very different from just being brought in at the end as a composer in post. We are about 1/2 done shooting and finally have a day off in the schedule today which I need to recover. I am beat.. Anyway

    Here are some select photos from the sets:

    Dina Waits - she's such a trooper (no pun intended)

    She's so cool.
    ...And has a mean right-hook by the looks of it!

    Thanks for posting this. Very cool!

    Come-on Brian we're AUDIO folks here! The audio guy: Sanken CS-1 (or 3) shot gun right? DAT?, DEVA?, Nagra?

    Nice gig (lucky stiff - outside in the fresh air away from clients and producers and directors).

    Cheers

    We will most likely submit the film to festivals that will be appropriate to the film's comedy style. I know Tim has a special place in his heart for Germany (he has family there) and with the original RUN LOLA RUN being a German film, the Berlin Film Festival is probably top on his list to get into. There is the Toronto Comedy festival, of course Sundance and Slamdance, HBO Aspen comedy festival, LA Film fest, etc...

    We'll have to see.

    I am sure we will have some screening here in L.A. either at one of the studios (with Tim's connections) or at one of L.A.'s theatres. Anyone who is here or can be there at that time, I will make sure you can come to a screening. But that will probably be after the first of the year if I had to make a guess.

    You know...I am not sure what the boom is. But yes...everything is recorded on DAT in the field. There will be some ADR needed in the film and lots of sound design of course. I will be working with the sound designer closely so the music and sound design will live happily together. Being not just the composer, but one of the producers...I will make sure that happens for sure. Tim is pretty much giving me free reign on creating the film's music and supervising the sound.

    Brian, I was referring to the actual microphone(s) being used not the boom that holds it.

    The adr is always the craziest part. Sometimes it's just best to have the talent return to the studio to "loop" in when the digital tricks, like Voc-Align, amoung others, seem to just take up more time than results produced.

    Logic's cycle record works great for this, if you get a Quicktime made of the scenes & open inside the session you're golden. (Cinepak compression easiest, Logic behaves better with & for some odd reason still around)
