Those of you who’ve been following the Cellar Door project so far will know how multi-faceted it is, and also how important it is to me to make this an inclusive project – after all, it is ultimately about the people of Earth and for them too! I’ll be running auditions for the various performers soon, singers, dancers, musicians and so forth but one element which is particularly pressing is that of the visuals. Creating a two and a half hour video accompaniment to the Cellar Door suite of music, both for inclusion on the deluxe DVD edition of the albums and, critically, as a backdrop to the launch event and live show itself, is a mammoth task. Without giving away too much of the story of Cellar Door, there are many sequences featuring different locations, topics – some like moving stage sets, some like a feature film, some working in conjunction with live action on the stage too.
I’m inviting animators, CGI artists, illustrators and film makers with all levels of experience, from passionate amateur to full time professional to get in touch – even if you’ve just shot something that looks beautiful and is in great quality on your phone, please send a link to examples of your work, your name, a brief bio (or link to one) and anything else you’d like to say to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org – although incredibly busy as you can imagine, I will make every endeavor to get back to everyone who get’s in touch, and hopefully many of you will become a part of this exciting project.
Some sequences in the piece will be specially commissioned, some will be made up from fitting clips from many sources, and some will be shot from scratch. There are many levels at which you can get involved and potentially hired / paid!
Meanwhile, work continues in earnest on the music itself which I’m thrilled to say is coming along wonderfully. I’m working on a piece at the moment which will feature a very unusual, beautiful and surprising instrument during one of Cellar Door’s more ‘mystical’ sequences…
Thanks for reading, and as ever, my thanks to you all for continuing to support me and this project by subscribing to the email list, following the Facebook page, and for taking the time to be here in the first place!
Best wishes… new V-Log coming soon!
Have a great week,
