June 20, 2014 : Closing Days For Ultra

Things are wrapping up on Ultra… and quite nicely, in my opinion. At this point, it’s a matter of getting the final specs on the rendered clip. Sadly, things like this always take longer than expected. Still, the hope is that everything will be completed by the end of the weekend. Below is an establishing shot of the store:

The shot is the first thing you see after the Intro Animation. I like its simplicity. For some reason, I originally intended to have outside, ambient noise playing over the shot. Instead, I decided to create a quick establishing musical number. This can be heard below:

In the past, I would record these short establishing pieces at the very end of production, and several times I felt the music suffered because it was rushed in the process. Not having identified the need for this piece until last week, I didn’t have much of a choice in prolonging the writing/ recording of it until the end of production. However, I like how it came out. I think it goes well with the theme of the short – and thus it helps establish things.
