Recording with Cazz! We took our very talented musical ensemble to lay down some bagillion part harmonies with Cazz Brindis, who is writing some additional music for the movie.
Saturday we shot one of our biggest scenes, the ending of the theme of the musical, “Life is Not a Musical.” We had our crew hard at work for 7 hours, and they were great! Here are some photos from behind the camera, so you can get an idea of why we had so much fun shooting this weekend. Look for video blogs and camera stills soon and keep an eye on our Twitter feed for by-the-minute updates.
Well, now everything is in full swing and it’s getting pretty intense. Our weekly production meetings have doubled in size and things are getting very serious. Idea Box Productions has become official and is the producing company behind Life is Not a Musical.
As you’ve seen from the photos and video below, we had our first shoot and it was amazing. We can’t wait to put some more talent in front of the camera and show them off. Every time we meet I get so excited to see how the actors are going to illustrate the things we’ve been just imagining.
Every weekend now we are either in the music studio recording vocals or shooting a scene or both or rehearsal. Things are getting really fun as we start to see what our finished product is gonna look like.
We are excited to announce we’ve been sponsored by a couple of organizations. This week we received donations from Pepperdine’s Student Government Association and Inter Club Council via the newly created Pepperdine Film Society. We can’t thank them enough and we are excited about what we can do now that we have a little funding to back us up.
Also worth noting, a friend and frequent collaborator, Jeff Loveness, won the “Audience Choice” at this weekend’s ReelStories Film Festival. Check out our cast members and choreographer in his great short Tutor.
Now it’s time for us to put our nose to the grindstone and get to work.
