Two weeks in, over half way!
First I just want to say a hearty thank you for supporting the campaign if you are already a backer. We are two weeks in and have raised over half the funds--on track, but we still have a long way to go! We will not rest on our laurels. Bob said it best:
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
So please tell your friends and spread the word. And thanks!
John and Bryan (producer/engineer) have been working hard on getting the songs mixed. Then they pass them to me for inclusion in the film. I'm pretty deep in editing these days, and it is an exciting process. Lots of footage to go through, but it is fun to discover moments I had forgotten and relive the experience of watching the musicians create the album. The songs sound amazing! I've found myself humming them around the house spontaneously. A few in particular are really stellar.
I'm really excited to be a part of this project, and I can't wait to share it with the world. One month to go.
Here's a screenshot of what I was working on today. It is the first song on the Album, "Envy." In the words of John:
The dress she wore was the color of envy,
when she smiled all the men would lose their cool
She turned to me and she said, "You are a fool, boy."
I said, "It's true, but don't you know, I am your fool, now."
Thanks for being part of this project!
