While we do prefer being a ‘production partner’ from the very beginning of a project, we have somehow earned a reputation of the ‘quick turnaround’ guys. This is another one of those “we need it yesterday” calls. While the job had its brain draining challenges, what made the task more pleasurable was that we were working once again with Bill Kinnon.
Bill and his wife Imbi directed and produced the Chris Falson and the Amazing Stories live concert (and many other similar concerts for Tommy Walker, Joseph Garlington and others). Better still, they are people with whom you want to hang out and talk about life and stuff over a glass of wine (or two) into the wee hours of the morning. Which we have done on many occasions.
Like many other projects, there were issues with the original music, to which the video had been edited. And so our modus operandi was to emulate all the key moments in the track and match them so that video edits and musical moments were married. It was more a mathematical equation than a musical one, and once the track had been mapped out the ‘musos’ were able to get to work and weave their magic.
In the end, what matters most is that we meet the needs (and wants) of the Client. And from today’s email from Imagine Communications marketing dept, I quote:
“I want to say a massive thank you for turning this audio around so quickly. We have had such great feedback on this video which I credit wholly to you and Bill. I hope we can all work together again soon.”
We hope so too.
