Music set to Motion Picture

For those of you who might be unfamiliar with http://www.newagepiano.net/ , it's a website dedicated to exposing pianists of new age and contemporary genres in conjunction with providing music available to the students involved with the Swan Lake Moving Image and Music Awards.

Three of my songs were selected by film students this year to make short films for the SLMIM awards: "Release", "Fly Away", and "The Tempest".

You can watch the videos by clicking here

Winners will be announced in late October. I think the film students did a really great job timing their work to the beats and accents in the music. "Release" filmed by Alexander Lorenz (in the Digital Film Category) and "The Tempest" (in the Animation Category) filmed by Tobias Kolodziey both made it as finalists in the competition.

P.S. You have to watch these films keeping in mind that these students were trying to acheive a couple of things - 1) putting into practice techniques learned in their classes for their categories (digital, animation, etc.), 2) the use of light (being hard to capture accurately on film), and 3) sincing to music.

I am very impressed with the short films they are great. The pieces that they chose were perfect. I love it.

Those were really neat! It was funny, Maddy was sitting on my lap while we were watching, and when "The Tempest" came on she said:
"mommy, spider! I'm scared!" And now she is yelling at me that she wants to see it again as I type.
Can't wait to see you in November!
