It's a great shot, though. I like the whites that Mel gets from that DSLR of his.
Anyway. April may be the cruelest month, but so far we are doing great in the music department!*
To wit-- last week, I was turned on to a new band, the mighty Wet City Rockers. Their work is absolutely perfect for a bunch of stuff we need, so I contacted them immediately. They are very cool.
And -- they are willing to contribute four songs to the film! That's a lot of songs. (Thank you Wet City Rockers!!)
I've also been composing a lot on the 8-track, and I've been listening to a whole ton of great stuff from other folks--nothing else has quite clicked yet but sometimes it takes a while.
To wit again, I completed a song last night that I'd had in mind and then dismissed for one part of the film, only to realize that it might work great in another part.
Then I woke up in the middle of the night and wondered if that song is right after all and if so, maybe it could be a lot better.
The middle of the night is not the best time for objectivity, so I'll have to look at it again and reevaluate.
On that note, if anyone knows of any traditional disco bands out there that are not shackled to Sony or Warner Bros, please let me know.
*Actually I think part of the cruelty of April is the illusion of joy early on, a set up for you to be absolutely crushed by the end of the month...
