Thank you all for your support this year, have a wonderful holiday season… as a little bonus I’ve posted another little video to wish you all happy holidays, no matter what or how you celebrate, have a wonderful time. I hope you enjoy this little excerpt from Cellar Door from the piece called ‘The Seed’ – it’s the most wintry sounding section! Thanks for liking and following – keep it up! Here’s to a magical, musical 2019. Peace, love and mince pies, Harvey. 🙂 X
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: email@example.com – 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,
Super quick first VLog – I’ll be posting a new one every day that is spent working on Cellar Door in any way – showing you what’s happening behind the scenes, sharing the process with you and letting you know how you can help and be involved in this wonderful project. Forgive the ropey editing on this first one, super busy day and I currently have the flu so may not be at my absolute best let alone most animated! 🙂
Here we go folks… one year from today, we launch Cellar Door. Will we do it?
Thanks for joining me! Are you ready to find out what lies behind the cellar door?
The ‘Cellar Door’ Trilogy is the latest project from composer and record producer, Harvey Summers (that’s me – hi!). An epic cinematic, predominantly orchestral work set to span a three album set, Cellar Door will take you on a journey and tell the biggest story of them all, from the birth of the universe through to the impact of humanity upon the planet, our lives while we are hear on Earth and beyond into our potential futures.
The music, mixed in stunning surround sound will be available in many formats when released in 2019… and talking of that, we are planning a totally unique, immersive, spectacular launch event at the Troxy theatre near Limehouse, London, UK which will not only provide an awesome listening experience but will be a multi-media, multi-sensory event with end to end video, dancers, live musical performers and vocalists, stunning lighting effects, theatrical sequences, scents and some secret ‘special effects’ which will transport the audience into the world that lies just beyond that mysterious Cellar Door.
Please follow this page and sign up for email updates – this is one you won’t want to miss!
Meanwhile, enjoy exploring the videos and extracts from work in progress. We will be adding content regularly featuring behind the scenes footage, interviews, fly on the wall documentaries of the studio sessions and much much more.
Thanks for stopping by!
