What has been done?:
- Acquired recorded Violin 1, 2 and Viola takes (for Cousin under the Axe, and Bull versus Lioness) from Steve Bingham, incorporated to songs, and comments kindly provided!
- Tristan Daniels has sent out his recordings of his Bass playing for To marry or not to marry, and Bull versus Lioness, however, the latter song’s take, was suffering from unintentional Distorting feedback, which affected the audio quality, Tristan said he will rerecord the part again with a new cable.
- Made a start to developing the Story boards
- Unfortunately, Terry Thomas has opted out of performing Electric and Acoustic Guitar due to Circumstances beyond his control, he will still be credited for his support with meeting Piet Zorn and the Voices.
- Terry has been replaced with Dewi Jones, a fellow football and old school friend.
What has been Learn’t?:
- The difficulty of when you have more than one people wanting to take part in a certain role, understanding how to appease and maintain collaborative interest with connections.
- The Importance of having contingency options, easier with the more common roles, but for the exotic, radical ideas have to be considered (so far it has not came to this)
- Learned about new fie type and file sharing methods from the performers I had recordings from this week.
-M4a.file:- Which is a newer version of the MP3, which contains stereo audio.
-WeTransfere:- A free (but can get premium for larger data sharing for a price) sharing website platform that can share files of 2GBs to recipients regardless the type of email they use (better to use than Google drive)
4. Dawned on me, from attending the local Medieval festival, the majority of people who are interested in history was thanks to a external influence, be that a creative media influence (Game or film etc). History directly could be seen by some people as being bland by reading about it in depth. Sparking interest in history therefore requires it seems a media outlet. Especially as people are ever interesting in the retelling of history, be that new evidence being found that question what was previously thought, or the medias that take advantage of history.
Games such as Assassins Creed, and For Honor, or for period films like Dunkirk, or Titanic are just very few out of the vast number of examples that take on History as a theme, loosely based of accurate (well evidenced) historical events, objects, creatures or people.
Fictional elements are prioritised as such due to the interest of the “what ifs” being juxtaposed on something happening which is more evidently real as non-fiction.
Horrible histories, creates interest in history as a topic, across many periods and civilisations. With as a Children BBCs programme in the between late 00s to early 10s, away from the books. played on using music with modern genre flavours, for educational and entertaining reasons.
Gloriana as a multi-media business idea can follow a similar path to horrible histories based on the books and the programme’s success, but the idea may not necessarily approach in selecting comical aesthetic. The target hopefully will appeal to a broader audience, and more fluid, in terms of musical genres and historic themes.
What is the plan for following week?:
- Continue working on the story boards.
- Complete more of the stage.
- Research recording of choirs, violins and violas.
- Record Andy Nicholas on thursday(s).
- Record the choir on Sunday.
- Prime camera hopefully to self record myself on drums for Gloriana trailer.
