A brief reflection so far on the stream and the sessions of Creative Drive. A few months had gone into planning and preparing the idea of producing a stream to create art and to do it live and now it’s happening.
All of the pieces were created and all of the tests had been run. The opening animation that plays after the starting soon visual took a month to produce. The name itself was in flux until I decided on Creative Drive. I sketched out a few images of the wordage and I settled on a design that I had inked, I scanned it, I made it digital and that’s the logo as it is now with both variations. I had worked on creating and producing each of the music tracks that have been incorporated with the holding screens, starting, pausing, stream over etc… Figuring out the cameras for the drawing table and how to get the OBS and the Deckboard app and all of those components to work. The swipe transitions and the overlays were created and a last minute decision to do rotating logos were added as well. I wanted something that would be very encompassing in quality and craft of both from a sound design and visual design approach to the entirety of the presentation.
Now there was a question I needed to the answer for myself and that was, what now? Are you sure you want to start streaming? Click yes. And there we go, that was it. That was the answer. The inner feeling of stage fright of performing and to begin with no material. Just go in and make something up. That’s what you do. Go do it.
So that’s what I did, I wanted to pursue all of the phases from the conception of the idea through the mundane and tedious moments of creation all the way to the final awe moments of completion of the art. Project BCM (Botanical Commandical Mechanical) is the the first project that is being created through these sessions. So far so good, stop by and take a Creative Drive. Until next time. -bryan
