This last week has been a lot of planning. At this present moment I have been personally engaged in the production of the new NPACE center’s promotional video. Our group will meet sometime this week for a storming session, to include building a rough story board, discussing narrative, and finalizing character ideas. I think that I’m more excited to get the footage into editing and playing with the different video techniques. Fun stuff!
Last week in the workshop at NPACE with Dave Arwood we learned a bit about the view of a radio station from a management perspective and shortly there after we got a chance to play with the new sound boards and software! Now things are getting fun! Wednesday we will get the chance to check out PMB‘s Wynnton Road studio. We’ll be meeting some of the different personalities behind the mics, and getting a chance to see the “how” and “what” of what it is these guys really do. I had a chance last year to hang out in the studio getting some air time for our “Children of Music in Schools” program and it was amazing to see how it’s really done.
Also this week, I am beginning work on some new posters for NPACE. I have had an absolute blast playing around with the different editing softwares in the new (and might I add lavishly furnished) labs in Dillingham Hall.We are playing with Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Indesign and a few others. Ever wonder how they doctor (edit) pictures in tabloid magazines? That’s what we’re playing with all week, too fun!!
I’m gonna have to wrap it up for today, but look forward to an early post this week as excited as I am about it’s happenings!! Until then…

Post Layne (Stayle)and these cats are still putting out some great jams. No one will ever BE Layne, but Willy Duvall does a great job trying. This album has been out for a hot minute, but it’s still a must rip album (Black Gives Way To Blue)!!
