AWOS Progress and Video Office Tour
Finally back to my normal schedule after almost a month away from it! Two weeks I took for vacation and the other two were spent doing undistracted "off-grid" work on Spirit Blade: A World Of Shadows. At long last I am thrilled to say that I have begun mixing scenes!
I've spent the last 6 months working on the songs for the project, which are now all at the point where they are either 80% complete or as far as I can take them for now. (For a couple I'm waiting on instrumentalists to record.) For all songs, however, the bulk of the uphill creative work is done, which is a huge relief. This means its time to take a break and work on scenes for a few months before I come back and finish off the songs with fresh ears.
As I continue making progress, I plan to make some videos of my work sessions from time to time that I will share with you on the Spirit Blade Productions Youtube channel. I also plan to present some behind the scenes videos of recording sessions with Michael Tully, Randy Hesson, myself, and even Holly Frandsen, the voice of Ebony Ravenloft (and also my wife), who has successfully dodged interviews and video cameras... until now. ;-) In the meantime, if you haven't checked it out since my brief message earlier this month, I've posted a new video on our channel, featuring Michael Tully (Raan Galvaanik) who helps me present a video tour of my work space. Enjoy!
Disturbing Trends In Christian Geek Media
If you haven't tuned in to the podcast in awhile, you may find a recent episode interesting. (Or maybe controversial.) Not long ago I sat down and recorded a conversation with friend and pastor Nathan James Norman, in which we compared some troubling trends we had recently discovered that we were both encountering with growing frequency. We go into some detail on what is concerning us and why, and also cast some vision for the Christian Geeks of tomorrow.
