Minushi DVD at Amazon.com

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

Some people are still a little skiddish about making online purchases on unfamiliar web sites. To those folks I give you the Minushi double DVD here at Amazon.com.

None the less if you are planning on purchasing the DVD (I love you) then please consider the Minushi eStore first as it is managed by the DVD’s distributor CreateSpace which is a company owned by Amazon.com anyway.

Both options are equally secure for online transactions but Amazon takes a huge chunk in commission so in the end, the filmmaker (that’d be me) sees less revenue in return.

I’m just saying.

PS. I promise I’ll use this site more in the new year to let you all know what’s new around here.

Click Here to get your very own Minushi double disk set! Right now! Finally!

It’s been a long, long road gang. Thanks for hanging in there. I’ll post more later about the ins and outs of getting the DVD made but for now, I’m just going to take a little rest.

I truly hope you dig the film.

Minushi in 5.1 Surround

Wednesday, October 24th, 2007

If there were a Minushi DVD in the works - and again, I can’t promise there is, because to promise it and then have it not happen would be just plain mean - but if there were; then today I might imagine I would be remixing Minushi’s soundtrack for 5.1 Surround Sound.

As with most things that I find befuddling until I actually dive in and try to figure out on my own, 5.1 sound seemed to me like it would require a studio at Skywalker Ranch to achieve. But in the same way one might, say, make a feature length animated movie on their laptop, mixing 5.1 is actually no great mystery. It’s kind of tricky working backwards from an already mixed 2.0 stereo soundtrack but I think the result will be worth the trouble… If, in theory, there were to be a Minushi DVD.

Fortunately all of Minushi’s sound effects were always created with a full spectrum of 16bit 44.1kHz sounds to begin with despite being originally destined for it’s low bandwidth online delivery. But you haven’t really heard Minushi until you’ve heard a Giant’s foot come down in a room equipped with a subwoofer on a DVD with a LFE channel. So if you’re working on your own project and its a web project, don’t limit yourself to compressed files, always think big because hey, you never know what you’ll be applying those files to one day.
