Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

To produce a 36 minute video entitled "Musical Impressions: The Art Of Hazel Belvo," consisting of Hazel Belvo images and Briand Morrison music. The music is to be inspired by the Hazel Belvo images, composed and recorded in-house at my studio. The art images will be selected and provided by the artist. I will specify the initial visual sequence and will use this for musical composition. The final visual sequence will be approved by the artist. I will then produce the video with the music using video editing software. The creation process is as follows: 1. decide on a cohesive body of visual work suitable to be shown in sequence. -I will rely on expertise of artist Hazel Belvo to satisfy this requirement 2. create initial visual sequence -sequence will be performed in video editing software and exported to various formats for evaluaion 3. compose music against visual segments -individual songs will composed for visual segments 4. record and mix music -songs will be "sketch" recorded and put with initial visual sequence exported for viewing and evauation 5. finalize visual sequence -having viewed the art with music I will finish the visual sequence and await approval from the artist 6. use recording software to fit song fragments in and record transitions -with the final sequence I will finish the audio track using the audio recording software 7. mix and master audio track -this process requires several mixes to be heard on various platforms including studio reference monitors, home speakers, car stereos, headphones and earbuds 8. import audio to video editing software and do final video edit -the final 24-bit mastered audio track is imported to the video editing software and finsihing touches put on 9. video ready for export in a number of formats including Mpeg for web, SD (DVD), full HD (Bluray) -video exported to various formats for viewing and evaluation
