it's that time again. that sort of anxious sick excited feeling i always get when a season starts.
i had dinner with a fellow composer in vancouver recently, and he was saying how when he submits for a show, he doesn't care if he gets it or not anymore because he knows how much work it is going to be.
in fact, thru out dinner i kept saying "we have the same life!"
the same client experiences, same network experiences, same everything.
dinner was so much fun. roger, who owns the post house where mlp is dubbed was buying me dinner, and his composer friend and main man on the show, adam,came along.
hal and i were like two old war buddies, trading stories that no one else should ever hear, and that no one else would really understand anyway, except a composer who has been in the trenches of episodic animation.
on another note, my animated short for stick man and the butterfly is coming along. will cuna is doing a great job with the character design and storyboard. we had lunch after going thru a bunch of stuff and we got to talking about the music and i had the strangest feeling. the thought of writing whatever i want with no input from a network or executive producer or director was very unsettling. i have had people just give me the freedom to do what i want on more than one occassion, but this is different.
i like it! i am just doing stuff for my approval!
