It was a fun movie to work on. I am very happy to have had the chance be a part of it. The songs were recorded in my home studio. I tried to use acoustic instruments instead of samples or synths whenever possible. Most of the songs are piano, acoustic guitar, melodion and accordion. I enjoy doing soundtrack work. Being able to draw the pace and mood from the film allows me focus more energy on melody and texture. There is also a second set of songs I wrote for the movie that did not make the final edit: Moustachette Outtakes by Ryan Cashman
I have finally begun work on the follow up to my video "Light Paint Piano Player"
The new video will be slightly more ambitious. Among other things, I am building custom lights using cold cathode tubes.
The light on the left is a single cold cathode tube attached to a paint roller. The light on the right is made out of two smaller tubes and a paint roller. The handle on this one is the roller so the entire light spins around.
The push button control of the white cathode makes it easy to create both long ribbons and short broken up lines.
Although less accurate than the white cathode, the spinning light is extremely gratifying. It creates smooth flowing arcs with ease.
All photos were taken with a Canon Powershot G10.
Version 1.5 introduces several exciting new features.
1) Cinema 4D compatibility
2) Complete hierarchy management for multiple stereo 3D workflows in a single project.
3) Improved UI
