Week 3 for The Paperboy

Read through:

We had a successful read through with all of the actors this past Tuesday aside from Jon Denney, who will be playing Scott, who was unable to make it due to a scheduling conflict.

Sound design:

This week Tommy and I sat down and came up with a rough sound sequence for the beginning animation scene which you can see in my previous post. I sat down with the animation team and separated each track so they could create a rough animatic:

(password: paperboy)

After viewing the animatic I have a better understanding of how they envisioned the timing of the shots which will make my job a lot easier with the final sound sequence. This week I plan on continuing working on the soundtrack as well as the opening credits.

The Soundtrack:

I’m really excited to get the soundtrack rolling which will have about 4 to 5 songs all written by myself and Tommy ranging from distortion/ grunge sound to ambient/ electronic.


Josh and Cameron managed to get the contact animation for the head of the Larping team at CCAD who were kind enough to let us borrow their foam swords and shields for the movie.

Chelsea picked up the Canon EOS 7d this week and our executive producer Sean balanced it on his steadycam getting everything ready for this upcoming weekends shoot.

As for the soundtrack I plan on using my Washburn WI-64, Microkorg, Joey Sturgis Custom Drum Samples, DigiTech GSP1101, BBE Sonic Maximizer, and many more fun toys.

To do List:

  • Begin finalizing animation sequence sounds
  • Begin soundtrack music
  • Work on voice-overs with the actors
  • Check the finalized storyboards
  • Film!
