The Tangible One



Finally, I have done DVD artwork and the label looks great in print. The front cover is not change much for the sketch. The lines are inspired by classic Thai drawing (I have to do something with at least one Thai influence). It is easy enough to crate in Illustrator even though it is not my ground of expertise. The background is the photography I took to animate in DVD Extras menu and played around in Photoshop.

The greatest thing I learn is what standard information they put on the cover and label: DVD logo, surround sound, DVD region and so on. The only thing I skipped is the rating since it is not classified even though there is a little bit of nudity.

Mixing surround sound design is a very interesting process. I will share it later. Next stop is the last stop�getting ready for the final presentation.

Almost There

After the stress of trying to put the work up onto Annual 09 DVD catalogue and website, I feel the hard work is almost over, thanks to the extended deadline. There are two major tasks in the plan: surround sound and DVD production.

I have corresponded with Rafiralfiro regarding the soundtrack. Even though he could not write something new from the scratch for me, he sent me some unreleased tracks to listen. His works are amazing and he is excited to see his track in surround environment.

I have sketched DVD cover and structured the menu but unfortunately did not get a chance to present them on Week 9 assessment.

Post-Production Juggling

Although I felt relieved after the re-shoot and have started editing for few days, there are still many things to do in post-production:

  1. Visual edit at the fine cut stage but Id like to start sound design to get the feel and mood and take that to the account in final cut. I still need a clearance to use Mrs Delloway book cover and find a tourist footage travelling by boat.
  2. Music I was going to compose myself but I found that Id better get a license. I have been listening to mobygratis and Rafiralfiro over and over then decided to ask Rafiralfiro (I used their music for my previous film) to use Celeste (harp song) but found that it was an original soundtrack of El Plan B. I contacted them anyhow meanwhile I might look for another composer.
  3. Sound design I couldnt believe that CG15 has been pre-booked ahead. I thought I was quick. This project is pretty much plan for sound design and Id like to do surround 5.1 to show off at Annual screening. This is something Cofa might have to look at when renovating the campus.
  4. DVD There is a rough idea and a cover sketch in my visual diary but it will come along later.

Thats the post-production juggling. Still.So.Much.To.Do.
