Friday Absent Update

Making a quick update on what I did on Friday the 19th due to me not attending classes on that day. I’ve decided to start focusing on the performance aspects now since the compositions are not due until after it. I have sent off all the tracks, foley and time codes to Francisco and he finally got to watch the whole film with most of the music. His only complaint was that the songs all felt a bit inconsistent from each other and hoped for more rock elements in it. Unfortunately I don’t have enough time to re-write any of them anymore so I’m just going to have to do my best and work with what I’ve got. I’ve also let him know that the film has to be graded and polished up soon so he’s started work on that. I’ve also begun tracking guitars for ‘Run Johnny, Run’, which is almost finished; I just need to continue layering and equalizing a bit more. Regarding the performance itself, I’ve decided to choose two cues that have guitars in it and I’m going to perform those. The plan is to export the songs (without guitars) and perhaps the foley into Pro Tools along with the high quality film so I can play along to it like a backing track using the Guitar Rig or similar program.

Anyway, so everything is starting to come into place! I should be more stressed out than ever right now because I am about three weeks behind schedule, but I’m feeling quite relaxed now because I’ve done everything I can like a crazy insomniac in the last two months or so and there is nothing much I can do about it now but continue to work.
