The character of Erich Zann is coming to life…

There are 4 phases that need to be completed to finish your product -  pre-production, production, post-production,  and distribution. I am proud to say that our pre-production and production phases have been completed successfully. We now need to keep working to complete the remaining tasks.

Even in the Quietest Moments …

Well, it has been 2 weeks since “The Music of Eric Zann” was wrapped, and all I keep thinking is, I definitely want to do this again.
Classes have resumed, assignments are due, overdue, and we have meetings. Tons of meetings. So far, we have met with the creative digital design guys numerous times and have come [...]

Wickatronic Zann Moments…

This was the moment – the day of the “money shot”. Jon Berezen did an incredible and amazing job on the makeup for the character, Eric (played by Paul Toolan). We were all fascinated and in awe of the key reveal of Eric Zann. We also spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to get the music [...]

THE “BEN PEN”

We’ve run over our to-do list over and over again. Yet it feels like something is missing.
We spent most of Thursday finalizing that list again and getting all of the odds and ends tied up. First, we started out by subjecting our sheet music to a rigorous “aging process” (endless soaking sessions in tea, coffee, and Coke), then we planned [...]

Pawn the Replay…

The days are winding down and so is the money …yet, it feels like there is still so much to do. Our 3D guys are having difficulty with finalizing and committing to the green screen flooring. They have to create a floor, which will be time consuming. We have since decided that throwing a rug down would eliminate the tedious [...]

My experience with the pre-production [...]

Made-up

First, let me say that make-up can be a loooong, grueling process. I am happy that I was not the one in the chair. Today, we did a make up test for Eric Zann’s transformation. This process, not including minor mistakes, can take anywhere from 2 1/2 hours – 3 hours. Our test was 2 1/2 hours long.
Our wonderful makeup [...]
