The Mixail Fan Community was opened last week. It is a newborn for now but I am confident that it will grow well. I'm looking forward to this because I very much enjoy the fact that the internet has become such an efficient global communication tool - I created the MFC after asking if he'd like to use this possibility in his career and he told me that he would be glad to have a more direct social interaction with the fans he has, so the idea for a group on Facebook is to me a good one, in addition to Twitter and the many other conventional ways of socializing on social media. He's already posted tracks he's been working on, etc.
To give the new members something captivating to look at once they join, we are now every Friday posting a picture of the Extraction Music Video Behind the Scenes. This is a video with a concept that will only give you guys a very basic understanding of what the storyline is. I am directing the video along with Sean Mitchell who is our computer graphics wiz at Axon Parallax. There is a lot to do and I'm not sure if releasing the video on the day Extraction gets out is realistic, but it is not a big deal to finish it by then.
A few pictures of the development process that have been posted already:
Working with the artist has been going well, even though we do not actually speak to each other because of the language barrier - we text using Google translator. It's efficient enough to give important information across but yes, it is not the most humane way of working as a team... we're trying to make this situation as temporary as possible. He is quick and good at writing music and he is eager to try new musical ideas, which is excellent.
Working with Black Sunset Music has also been good because - and this has been proven time and again - the trust is very strong between the company and I. That's to me the most crucial element when it comes to administering project as a team, especially when unconventional ideas are being thrown in.
2014 will be seeing a lot of good releases, I know it.
