I spent a very productive weekend finishing up the music soundtrack for a short educational film on helmet safety that Mike Milo is producing for a client of Milowerx Animation Studios. The film looks really sharp, now hopefully it’ll sound really sharp as well! It features flash animation by Mike Milo and backgrounds by Jason McAuthur. The main character is voiced by one of Mike’s very talented daughters, Melissa. Creative talent very much runs in the Milo family!
For sound and video work, I love the applications originally created by Sonic Foundry (now under ownership of Sony Media Software) such as Sound Forge, Acid, and Vegas Video. I still use the last-gen Sonic Foundry versions of each application, as I just haven’t warmed up to the Sony versions yet.
Aside from soundtrack work, I also managed a bit of writing this weekend, and finalizing my first western novel, Badhat for press after an unfortunate delay.
