We’re adding a whole new animation element to my Siddhartha music video! Chad Krowchuk, the director, is designing and implementing animation to tie together some of the footage! It looks GREAT! I am really excited to share it with you.
Sorry it’s taking so long, but good things take time! Look forward to seeing the video linked on the site within the next month or so!
We are adding some footage to what we have for the Siddhartha video. We got it into the editing room, and realized that the story we wanted to tell wasn’t quite getting told, and that a little extra push from something else would do the trick. So, we are going to use some of Chad Krowchuk’s amazing animation skills and visual genius to build some cartoon work into the video.
It will go along with the live footage, enhancing the story and putting the video into a context, a new world. It will bring a whole new aesthetic to the look of the video, putting it into a realm reminiscent of Terry Gilliam’s amazing films.
Chad Krowchuk is going to create a whole new element for this video, which is going to knock your SOCKS off!!
I have got a good thing going with the editor of my video for my song Siddhartha! His name is Matt Lyons, and he really is a very good editor. We’ve worked together for quite a few hours on the video so far, along with the video’s director Chad Krowchuk, and I’m loving what were getting! Not only is Matt sensitive to story and process, but he has a great eye for aesthetic, and has great rhythm! We’ve talked a lot about how the pictures should enhance and support the rhythm and melody of the song, and he’s right there with me. He’s clearly done this before!
The video should be finished in the next month or so, we’re taking careful time with it to make it as good a it can be. You’ll be able to see it here on my website, and on Youtube and a few other places soon!
I love to meet musicians! I met a wonderful girl today named Nat Jay for breakfast, and we had a great conversation about lots of stuff, but mostly about music and I love to talk to musicians! Next time you get the chance, sit down with a musician and see how they see the world. There’s a musicality to everything they do, in some way! I notice the way musicians talk has a certain cadence, a certain unconscious appreciation for melody and tone. Talking to musicians is an amazing experience because they have this sense of how to convey a thought, convey an idea in a succinct and often very entertaining way. It’s a real treat.
