Its been a couple of weeks since I wrote any updates on the King No Crown movie that I’ve been working on. This wasn’t because things haven’t been happening or because I haven’t been working on the film–I certainly have–I just wanted to get a few things ironed out before I gave another update.
In my last update, I was deep in the not-so-fun post-production process. Although I’m not 100% finished with with post-production, I am very close. I’m at least close enough to where I feel comfortable moving forward with the next step, which is…
This has been an exciting week as far as progress for my King No Crown movie goes.
After a two-week setback that was caused by converting my entire film over to a newer version of Final Cut Pro, I finally finished redoing the color and most of the sound. This allowed me to get the film back where it was before I decided to convert it. Even better, because I now have more powerful features than I did before, things are actually looking and sounding better than they did before. Initially, I wasn’t happy about sacrificing two to three weeks redoing work I had already done but, now that it’s finished, I’m convinced it was worth it. It looks and sounds better than it did before all this, which is all that I could ask.
This week, I started working on a trailer for the film.
For the last two weeks, I’ve been knee deep in revising my first film King No Crown. Obviously I’ve been gradually revising it throughout the entire process but, as I get closer to the end, the revisions start to get a little more involved and intensive.
For those who listen to my podcast, you heard me announce this week that I am in the final stages of finishing my first movie, a documentary called King No Crown.
In my book, The Making of Adventures in Counter-Culture, I go into great detail about the role that television and movies have played in creating my music. During my most intense periods of music creation, there are times when I will watch three or four movies a day while I’m in the studio. Although I don’t actively “watch” them – the sound is usually off or very low – they are on in the background providing images and inspiration.
