     At the mid-April Notacon/Blockparty I completed the introduction to a Fatman and Circuit Girl superhero movie.  Thanks to all involved in the production -- Jeri, Trish, George, Kevin, Jim, and Rob.  Thirteen to fourteen hours of work just to produce 37 seconds of video!  It was shown to the crowds at the Notacon/Blockparty and greeted with much applause.
     Now the hard part comes... the rest of the two to three-minute animated feature.  Filming the video, overlaying the voices, adding sound effects, and adding in a soundtrack.  Months of work.  However, with the help of most of the people above (including Stephen J. who says he will help with the sound effects and even a SID music soundtrack), it will get done, hopefully by the end of the year or the beginning of next year.

                Replete with Commodore references,

Cool!  Yes, I'm up for the collaboration.  If you have any footage available, let me know and I can start
scoring it. MP4s would work for iMovie HD if you are using that.

     New footage is not available yet, though I have recorded the first voice for the video.  The introduction is up, but you have to compare it to the "original" to understand the satire.  I'll send you the links to the intro and to the original.
     I was thinking of a type of 1950's thematic vibe to the soundtrack, but you are the expert in such things... not me.  Smiley  Who knows?  Perhaps you'd want to incorporate some melodies from your band into the FMCG soundtrack.  Smiley

Definitely is going to have a '50s' vibe to it.  Remember I have Kronos on laserdisc, so I'm set.
I wonder if you sent me up the Moog Producer I could use that as well.  Looking forward to the
footage.

     Oooo, then you know what to do when K-R, the giant robot, appears in the FMCG movie!

     That's possible.

     I'll ask you to replicate those Kronos whistling and pinging sound effects.  Smiley

Yes that should be no problem at all.

     At today's FCUG meeting I showed off the introduction to the documentary filmmakers who have been trailing me.  They were very appreciative of the work and sympathized with what I had to do to get 37 seconds of video.  In fact, filmmaker Rory said that it took her 5 years to finally finish off a 90-minute production.

               Makes me wonder when Starship Exeter: the Tressaurian Intersection will be done,
