2011 – Last 100 Days
Prodigal Altar Boy Countdown
T-35 Days to Go
26 November 2011

Goal:  1 hour per day working on the film
Reading Karen Everett’s eBook “Documentary Editing” on the ride back from Norfolk.  Covered the purpose of each act.  Constructing the Doc Plot Map.  Pacing with the Doc Plot Map.  Chapters covered:
Constructing an Inciting Sequence
Launching a Character Driven Documentary
Portraying the Inciting Incident
Sustaining Momentum
Total time:  2 hours

Goal:  30 minutes per day music practice
Warm-up on the MojoCaster
Talkin’ Loud and Sayin’ Nothing – Living Colour version
It’s Your Thing – Isley Brothers
“So What” – Miles Davis (watched Jazz On The Tube clip of “So What” just to vibe on Miles)
Total time:  30 minutes

Goal:  15 minutes exercise per day
Active rest.

Goal:  15 minutes per day working on the score for the movie
“Granby Street” – on the MojoCaster, focus on lyrics, tempo and ending
“Dies Irae” – 20X  in groups of five, allowing me to focus on execution
Am – D7 chord progression, pulling in palm mute A and A octave and D bass.  This progression is really falling into place.  Playing this with  Garry, having him move from the A to the D brings the chord progression home.
A Dorian riff  - this riff seems so small now compared to the chord progression built around it.  I should multitrack this riff against the chord progression.  This might be good for the Digitech JamMan.
Total Time:  30 minutes
