Busy, busy time … only 6 weeks left until I need to get this final cut of Freedom Dance to sound designer Kevin Hill so he can finish the effects tracks and mix everything.
I have the 30 minutes of Freedom Dance cut … minus the Vienna scenes … a big hurdle for Craig and I, but it is being surmounted. My last couple of edit sessions have given way to a basic skeleton that gives the scene a basic shape … many holes to fill though.
Meanwhile, am also creating a festival list and listing the deadlines so I can get a sense of what festivals are possible for us and how long we have to prepare.
Making final list of end credit role. Will pass along to a couple of others for varifcation … (biggest fear is for me is leaving some deserving soul out of the Thank You list!)
Just about to finish up a one-hour special I am producing for NVCC-TV in Virginia about regional animation (interview-driven showcase on animators in the area). When this is through, I’ll have more time to dedicate to the Freedom Dance final cut.
The animation workshop I am giving is July 22 in New York! ... met with fellow animators John Bintz, Ernie Berger, and Mark Stansberry (who will all be joining me in a kind of panel discussion) to finalize our agenda. Been making the calls to friends and colleagues up there in anticipation … meetings and social get-togethers.
In between all this, I’m also finishing up the music sound track. I’ve now completed the music that will go with the Border Crossing scenes—a tense and dangerous moment full of suspense! Will be back at The Note Factory in a couple weeks to record the latest batch of music.
Freedom Dance is in the final stretch!!! Keep your eyes on Freedom Dance The Movie Dot Com for future screening dates!
