Overall direction of the project
The short-film is completed (with the exception of one small 4-second clip). The score is composed, waiting on orchestrations. That means our main focus has been building the digital app.
The digital part of the project has had a lot of ideas, tests, and iterations, and by testing many hours of ideas, our current goal is to create a virtual experience of the Thomas piece, with an interactive component that lets you play the role as the conductor. We want to represent visually what the sounds of the instruments do, while challenging our “player” to interact with the music cues to learn a little bit about how the sounds of the instruments work together.
This has been a lot of fun, and considering we’ve had to reorganize parts of our project based on not having immediate access to live recordings, we’re excited that we can continue moving forward with our work.
Tracking the Progress with a Roadmap
In an effort to be transparent with you about our progress, we’ve created a project showing our roadmap. This post is dedicated largely to describing what these components are and what we’re working on. Keep in mind this is due to change widely based on what we learn going forward, but its insight into what we’re doing.Keep
