I did some interviews for Tysus & Zianna Wednesday night -- whatta blast.
Dan Parsons is freaking amazing. His lighting and setup created a warm, professional, studio-like ambiance, and the hi-def camera (in capable hands) puts out an incredible picture.
The interview was lot of fun, and I left with a ton of "what I would have done different" ideas rolling around my head. Not in a negative way at all -- this was my first interview of this kind, some I'm giving myself grace. I just noticed things about myself watching the playback, and can make corrections and more interesting choices the next go-round.
I guess that's one of the big things I took away from the night -- just a like for a character, it's important to make strong choices for the interview.
We then watched some of Dan's other stuff, including his/Alex Lawrence's previous CGI animated piece, Wheel of Time. Five years ago, and the thing is tight, compelling, and fluid, and the technology (and Dan and Alex) have just gotten better.
The interviews'll be used to tease Tysus & Zianna on the upcoming Website over the next year, and'll be added to the DVD for distribution.
I'm really excited to be a part of this.
