Documentary Recommendation: Beware of Mr. Baker (2012)

This rockumentary came on high recommendation to me from one of my musically inclined friends. I watched it today at 8AM because I got up particularly early today because my wife was leaving early to participate in the Color Me Rad 5k in Indianapolis. This documentary gets 5/5 in my book and a 98% on rottentomatoes. Check it out if you are into incredibly talented and eccentric drummers. It’s inspired me to dust off my Fresh Cream LP and give it another go.

I’m on a gnarly documentary kick as of late. This is the third good doc I’ve seen in the past 2 days.

Judi Lee Session

Judi Lee Session from Reber Recording on Vimeo.

Here’s a short documentary that Lauren Reber and I created for Judi Lee who came into my recording studio, Reber Recording, to record a 5-song EP comprised of songs written by bands from Indiana’s past. This is my first attempt at documenting a recording session in this way. I work with audio so this video stuff is still pretty new to me. That being said, I look forward to making more of these. Feel free to like the studio FB page!

Indie Game: The Movie

Tonight I had the pleasure of watching this documentary about the trials and tribulations of a few independent video game creators. I gave this documentary a 5 out of 5. It was very well done and managed to give a great deal of insight into the stressful issues involved in creating a unique game. I appreciate that the focus was centered around the people and not just the technology and code. This made the story relatable to a wider audience of people that otherwise might not have sat through the entire film.

I’ve learned that independent game makers and song writers are not all that different. I like to think that the majority of creators share similar experiences and emotions regardless of their chosen medium. However, I can’t speak for everyone. We’re all different and have our own opinions and views. That being said, it’s time for me to go to sleep. I have to be showered and ready to teach class in the early AM.

Judi Lee Micro Documentary

Here’s a shitty soft-focus glimpse of a micro documentary that I have been editing for the past couple of days. The documentary is focused on local Muncie musician, Judi Lee. Judi came into my studio a few weeks ago to record a 5-song EP consisting of cover songs originally composed by Indiana bands that she had grown up listening to.

I am hoping to wrap up the editing process in the next couple of weeks. As soon as I am comfortable with it, I will upload it to vimeo and embed it in a blog post. I wish I had more time to devote to editing but I’m being stretched pretty thin between grad school, teaching, recording, and filming. Life is feeling pretty crazy at the moment.

Village Green Records Short

I created a short film for to advocate the ideals and philosophy behind Village Green Records. This is the first film I’ve created using Adobe Premiere CS4 but I’m fairly pleased with the end result for it being a first attempt.
