We shot our latest short yesterday, a comedy written by MT, produced by LouAnn, and directed by yours truly. Starring Tom Herman, Aaron Graham, and Kirby O’Connell. It’s off to the editor tomorrow, and should be done this summer. More stills from the raw footage:

Vocalo

My good friend Tom Herman interviewed me this morning on Vocalo.org. They’ve been running a series on local musicians, so I came in and talked a bit about life as a Chicago freelancer. As promised, here’s what I played, and where you can hear more:

  • Otakar Ševčík: School of Bowing Technic for Violin, 4000 Systematic and Progressively Graded Bowing Exercises, Op. 2. No. 5.
  • Alaric ‘Rokko’ Jans: “If Music…” from Twelfth Night. Now on stage at Chicago Shakespeare. This was on viola. At the start of the interview, I played some of the show’s underscoring on violin.
  • Richard Rodgers: “If I Loved You” from Carousel. Now at the Joffrey Ballet. I also played a little bit of the opening music.

Vocalo is a really interesting concept. Its mission is to be “a place to create,” and users are encouraged to share their audio, video, and images, which the hosts then use on the air.
