What’s in store for this year? Well, I have an entire HOUR tributing to The Beatles!

9Teen’s cover of ‘Golden Slumbers’ by the Beatles!

So, this past March, the video and audio students in the ‘Media Arts & Technologies’ department at Mount Wachusett Community College were suppose to take part in filming a concert, hosted by the band 9Teen. Unfortunately, the concert was cancelled, but we did do a video shoot and recorded the audio for an ‘online brochure’ of what it is the department does. The official video has not yet been released, but the songs they performed in the video shoot have been digitally mastered and finalized.

The band mostly did 60 to 90 second shorts, but one song they performed on this video shoot was the entire medley of “Golden Slumbers” from the ‘Abbey Road’ album by The Beatles. I threw up the video on YouTube to take a look at it. The still images in the video are some shots I took at the shoot and rehearsal, that happened the night before.

When I get news about the official video being released, I’ll make it available on my website, as there’s a good possibility I may have been featured in the video at least once. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy this track by 9Teen and very much appreciate your feedback.

My final project in Advanced Audio Production

I’ve been getting a lot of requests to share the YouTube video of my ‘Advanced Audio Production’ final project, so I figured I’d share it here. This assignment consists of a 3 minute clip from the movie ‘Plains’, where we eliminated the audio, and did our own dialogue, foley, sound effects and music. In the clip, I play the character Dusty, a crop duster. This project was compiled  by the whole class and each of us were responsible for our own final mix. It was a lot of fun and definitely something I’m proud of. I hope you enjoy it!
