TENORI-ON!!! + Updates
So this has nothing to do with anything aside from the fact that I want one. I want one NOW.
I will literally spend hours curled up with this thing by a snowy window. they're out of stock on the moment but I signed up for email updates. Stay tuned.
Here's some news while I'm here:
One: We're going to get started on the next LDE project, "Push" asap. Possibly monday. We'll be shooting a bit of preproduction and editing Tennessee footage simultaneously. Principal photography begins in about a month.
As a result, Two: We're really going to have to step up the editing process for the Blip Festival Performance DVD (are we still calling it "Blip Festival: Galaxy Tonite" ???). For those of you outside of The Know, we here at the 2pp lab are hard at work on a dvd featuring a performance video from each of the 32 artists/groups that performed at Blip 06.
Because we're submitting the documentary to various festivals this year, we are prohibited from screening any of that material at Blip 07. However, to avoid showing up empty handed, we decided to ramp up production and have this thing pressed and ready for the merch table by this year's festival. It's going to be hell juggling this with Push but I'm up for it.
If all goes according to plan (which is to say, if we sell all the copies from the first run of printing), we should be left with enough to FINALLY own our own camera + a few accessories. About time.
Oh, and let me just give a huge nod to Don "No Carrier" Miller. He's programming a series of demos for the DVD menu design among other things. To get a small taste of his wizardry, here's the e-flier he whipped up for last month's Pulsewave. (music by Nullsleep)
If that doesn't make sense to you, all will be explained in time. For now, my thanks to our many talented collaborators -- it has, and continues to be, an honor.
and because you make the effort to read my little ramblings, here's a look at the trailer I'm putting together for said DVD. Ideally, this will be playing on a loop on a small tv at the merch table next to a towering stack of dvds.
