Moving forward…

Posted by Rick Burnett on September 16th, 2009 filed in General News

As always, there are more projects going on at one time than there is time to get them all done, but nevertheless, I do what I can to keep all the balls rolling!  Some new projects coming, some old project updates, and a little of this and that.

Music

First and foremost, I am still working towards the release of my full length CD.  Some other projects came about that had deadlines that put this off, but this is back on track and I am preparing to send more data to my mixing engineer.

In addition to this, I am also working on a remix for the band Red This Ever.  This is turning out to be quite a fun project.

 

Film Scoring and Sound Design

I was shocked to find out that I was up for an award at the Action on Film festival this year for Sound Design, along with Andy Coon.  While we didn’t win, just being nominated felt really good.  After all that hard work, it was nice to see that it paid off in some recognition.  We also won action film of the year at the Fright Night Film Fest.  I know the film is still moving around the film festival circuit so I hope to see some more nominations/wins to come in.

I also worked with Adam Hulin on his film It’s Hour Come Round, which is a HD 3D film.  I was very happy work work again with Chris Hurn scoring the film and me adding additional scoring and sound design.  We’ve still got a bit of ADR to do in the future, but the film looks awesome, and the 3D quality of the film is very spot on.  The film has a strong Twilight Zone presence to it and I happen to have loved both old and new Twilight Zone.

Two new films are coming my way shortly from Mike Chrisco that I will be scoring.  Both of these projects look like a lot of fun.  I will be spending some time working on some more ethnic arrangements and also a boxing film.  Variety does make film scoring a lot more interesting.

Relativity

Things are progressing on the film.  There are a few changes to the script I need to make, that are minor, driven by the logline creation that Micah Moore has been helping with.  Currently there is only a few props left needed for filming to get started so I am getting that together as well.

The amount of talent that has been pouring out of the wood work to be involved with this is amazing.  I honestly did not know just how many talented and willing people there are out there, and I really look forward to combining their visions along with mine for the final product.

Technical Round-up

Lastly, I have put off a lot of upgrading in the studio lately.  For someone who uses more than 100+ plugins from a variety of people, needless to say, upgrading to a new OS is a LONG and PAINFUL process.  Luckily if you have multiple drives, it is ALWAYS good to keep a working setup around that you can go back to.

I have picked up Logic Pro 9, but have not started using it yet.  I really want to get into the flex tools and some of the other interesting additions they have added.  I am a little afraid of compatibility issues with Line 6 plugins that I do use.

I also picked up Snow Leopard and have begun using it on an external drive.  IT IS FAST.   However, for my studio machine, I think I am going to break down and buy an SSD drive from Intel to act as the boot drive (80G)  because the speed enhancements are great. Especially since pro-audio software likes to crash so much, applications will come back up lickity split.

I also see that Native Instruments is about to release updates for both Absynth and Kontakt which I use both.

There are some other updates here and there, but I haven’t moved a lot on those.  One thing I’d like to say that I want to see that I don’t see is synths for the UAD cards.  I’d REALLY like to use their power on some raw synth sounds.

The newest addition to my synth lineup is Largo by Waldorf.  Haven’t even installed it yet, but given I own a yellow Q and an orange MicrowaveXT, I am LOOKING FORWARD to the sound generated by their engineers.

In Closing

As I said, there is a lot going on, which is why I’ve been so quiet on here.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to start directing people to where this stuff is released!
