Burning Up! is finally finished and live. It’s a musical product of the Lehman Engel Musical Theatre Workshop at BMI. Thanks to the cast and crew who worked very hard on this, I’m proud to call it my latest film.
How cool is this? Paper statues. Left to sit, they look like stone, but lift them and well… you get the idea. Wonderful spin on a classic medium.
I wanted to update you all on what’s happening behind the curtain at Man Powered Films. At the moment, I’m working on a few projects, and two will be coming good in the next few weeks. The first, is Burning Up!, the musical by Pam Grayson and Rick Bassett. The edit is done and now, because this is a film and not a live show, Rick is using the magic of postproduction to sex up the sound design, which was pretty amazing to begin with, so this thing is going to rock. Second, I’m working with Jordi Magomero on finishing a video art project about magic we started with the participation of the talented Teutonic Tobias Dostal, yet another magician, artist, and friend of mine. I look forward to showing you all the amazing work that’s been put into these projects, but for now, sadly, I have to keep you waiting. Until next time!
Let me start by apologizing for posting this sort of spam on my blog. I don’t do this often, and I’m doing this this time because this is a valuable tool for film making and this has got to be one of the best prices I’ve ever seen for it, hands down.
I just ordered this. This is one of the best deals I’ve ever seen on electronics. Okay, so it’s the previous generation, and it’s a refurb, but it’s still one of the best tablets, and it works. No one complains if their screwdriver or dishwasher had a previous owner. It’s got 32 gb of storage, which is nice for most normal this-isn’t-a-toy-it’s-a-tool uses, and the pure Google Android OS, which is amazing. Most importantly to me and my planned use of this, it’s got long battery life, a great screen, and the ability to be used as a monitor for a video camera or DSLR, and unlike purpose built monitors, it is futureproof. No more hoping things are as in focus as they appear on my tiny on camera screen or diopter. If you’re a photog, this thing is great, and at this price, impossible to pass up. The only better tablet for shooting video like this is the Kindle Fire HDX, which is nearly three times the price. You can even get this with a two year warranty. As film equipment goes, this is versatile, useful, and for once, super, super cheap.
