Collaborative Project Post 2

Alright, it's been a week.  So I have an animatic to show - really exciting news!

I have the time counter on the bottom for Shadowbox reference so they know when things are happening in the song - for when they need to know when performing live.  I also have annotations on each of the storyboards detailing what is supposed to be happening on screen.

Now I have started to figure out how this is going to look and Karl and I were filming my friend Haley in the space astronaut suit we borrowed from Phil.  And this is what we've got to show for it:

I am really happy with it and cannot wait until we start filming for real!  Now I just need to contact Shadowbox to get someone who will fit into the costume and borrow some of their instruments to get the ball rolling.

Collaborative Projects Post 1

Well, I guess this is my first post for Collaborative Project's Which One's Pink.  And in case you're new to the story, it's a CCAD collaboration with Shadowbox Live where we're producing the visual images for a Pink Floyd Musical.  So the show is divided into two acts, the first act following Syd Barrett and the second act focuses primarily on Dark Side of the Moon and its connection with the Wizard of Oz - The Dark Side of the Rainbow, as it is commonly known.

But enough about that, let me get to my part.  I have the song In The Flesh (Pt. 2 - because apparently there are two parts, this shows what little Pink Floyd I know!).

Now for In The Flesh, I have this crazy astronaut idea that is a reflection of how the band decided to kick Syd out of the group.  Where they're all playing on the moon and the "Syd" astronaut does something strange and weird - like destroying the moon base, so the rest of the astronauts decide to leave him there and go back to earth.

The style that I'm trying to go for would be along the lines of A Trip to the Moon and the main title sequence to Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll in which there is live-action footage that is green-screened on to flat images.


This ought to be interesting once it's done.  But on the bright side, I have the approval of the leader at Shadowbox to start production!
