That little thing rattling around...

I have been working on a top secret project.  It was born because I was bored and frustrated. I am in the process of basically selling STUCK which is not a lot of fun for me.  And I am working on the second feature film-- this time creating something that is "fully strategized" from the get-go.  That means I'm doing alot of research: market comparisons, budget forecasting, side income generation, blah blah blah...before I even sit down and write the script.  It's alot of work.  And I'm really tired of having to raise money and resources to make something.  So, I said to myself, "how about we make something with what we have just for fun?"  

I thought the first stop would be picking up the Canon 7D DSLR I bought for the Smart Cookies shoot and learning how to shoot video with it.  But I very quickly realized how much technical stuff I have to learn to really get that going.  So I sat down in front of the computer and opened "Garage Band".  My mind very quickly said..."oh, no you can't use Garage Band.  It's not an industry standard.  Very amateurish.  You need to buy ProTools".  My response was:  "I ain't got no money.  We're not waiting.  We're using Garage Band.  And that's that."   

So off I went building out "something" on Garage Band.  I had no idea what it would be.  Well, here it is: Interlude #1.  

Now.  What do I do with this?  I thought it was going to evolve into a music video. But as I was listening to the most recent incarnation it struck me.  "Maybe this is VR."  VR?  Yes-- at Dallas Video Festival I met a guy (who was actually married to a wonderful artist friend I had in HS.  Small world.). He's a pretty hot VR director right now. I never thought I would be into VR because to me it is a very isolating format.  But after I experienced a few pieces of work that they had going on at the fest I was sold.  This could be a very cool medium.  And this soundscape would be perfect for that.  And he told me he has gear sitting around wanting to be used....  

OR  

It could be a part of a stage piece or some kind of weird performance art experience...  

OR  

It could stand alone...  

OR  

It could live as part of a video...  

The options are endless.  Whatever it is it will definitely be a JTExperience.  

I am sharing it with JTExperience Members-- I don't usually share something so early but I want Experience members to be included in my creative process:). AND I want their opinions.  I'd love to hear yours too.  You can join us in the Voice & Vote/Private Screening Room!
