The Ancient Pain of Creating A ShowReel

The Ancient Pain of Creating A ShowReel

It's been FOREFVER since I put together a decent showreel for my musical endeavors, but this site needs one. To that end, I'll be (courageously) delving through the 1,000+ hours of content I've created, flagging, tagging, clipping (gopchop-ping), then editing together what should be a badass 1 minute long showreel highlighting:

  • Stride Piano
  • Music Education
  • Composer and Arranging (always so hard, cause it happens on paper, and filming paper is so very rarely exciting - exception: "Crumb")
  • Synthesist
  • Band Leader (bunch of screencaps of lillypond running the generation of my book, I guess, followed by screencaps of all the pdfs opening, followed by my scanner toolchain, followed by ipad vid of my book on the ipad?)
  • Ukulele goofiness
  • Music box creation stuffs
  • Chiptune and games music
  • Podcasting/Voice overs/Engineering

So yeah... gonna be a pain in the ass - it's the exact type of thing I traditionally truly HATE spending my time on. But hopefully we can just bang it out today and get back to work building out the rest of this damned site.
