So, today, we officially began prep for the Mio/Homura music video. Those of you who haven't already heard the track, kindly click here.
My fiancé Seán and I went walking through some woods that he was very familiar with. Having grown up around Fulwood, he knew the area around Midgery and Fernyhalgh quite well. There are some woods there, and a brook, and some open meadows. All the ingredients which we felt necessary to express the sentiments behind Mio/Homura in visuals!
So we took some footage of our exploration, some nine minutes and a bit of meep. We explored, imagined footage, and I beat my drum a bit.
It was just beautiful, being with him, and preparing to bring another massive creative project to birth.
Part 2 should be on Monday; I'm going to be meeting a couple friends at Soundskills to test that facepaint idea, the one that is my profile picture on Newgrounds, the face with the henna-like designs. Seán's gonna be there to observe and record what he can. It's kinda ironic that in spite of him having a neurological condition which causes him to shake, his camera footage was a lot steadier than mine. I suck at cameras. XD
I intend to have the flowers in my hair on the actual recording day, but we'll see what happens. Like with everything else that I've been doing so far, video is going to be nonprofit.
