Hello fellow Wombatians.
Tis I, Jimmy Martin (who many of you may know as mimmy), the one you have heard of many times before, writing a blog all by myself for the first time. Honestly, I thought I was gonna make it through the entire production process without having to blog, but I got it for the second to last week. Despite various setbacks, we have done absolute work and are approaching the home stretch. We only need a few more shots here and there, some short music clips, and some editing for the first half of the movie, but I’d say we’re pretty close. I can smell the Wombatianess in the air already.
I write music. That’s what I do. It’s pretty awesome. Ive taken the orchestral route for the most part in this movie, as have many others. There’s a lot of competition for music this year, and I haven’t heard a lot of others (except for the occasional symphony by Brian Hazerjian from across the room), so i’m excited to hear what others have written. We have been exceptionally lucky in that almost every song I’ve made has synced perfectly with its scene without any editing. I don’t understand. It’s not like I plan it out or watch the scene while I do it, it just happens. It has saved us a lot of time though, so I’m not complaining. Outside of that, my only other job is to reel in the music trivs with rachel, but lets be honest, I was the mastermind behind this movie.
So yeah, we have basically taken the advice of the writers and gotten really weird. We lost our original vision for the movie a long time ago, but I’d say it has been for the better. This movie thrives on chaos. Everyone has done their part tremendously and the result is gold. You’re gonna love this movie.
