"Things You Need": 48-hour machinima
Jun Falkenstein (of Stone Falcon Productions) and Ben Covi (of Oblivious Films) recently teamed up to take part in the 48-Hour Film Project's Machinima segment, where you naturally are tasked with creating a short machinima film in its entirety within 48 hours. I was happy to be a part of it by orchestrating music for the piece, since the genre that the team pulled was musical.
Creating any sort of film in 48 hours is not easy. Jun and Ben's work, I think, ended up campy and hilariously insane as a result. I certainly think my music arrangements could have been much better, but part of the fun is the mad rush to produce something--anything--that will work. I'll definitely consider participating in a more major way next time the contest rolls around.
