Outtake Japan video online:
the Buddhist beggar monk in Tokyo

Here's one many people have been waiting to see:
ever since our return from our holliday in Japan (in 2008), I've been itching to get to work on the 12 hours of video footage that I brought back, but always something came up and got me 'sidetracked'. By popular demand I've conceded to post an outtake of the documentary I'm still in the process of making (which is titled: "Japan, ancient & modern"). This clip is the famous footage of the Buddhist beggar monk in the streets of Tokyo, enjoy!

Saturday 24th of April at 19:00 hour the long awaited ceremony took place:
in the presence of Bregje and Inge and several close friends, André, after a short speech, officially handed the first copy of the Longshanks CD to singer Alex.
After that, all of the other attendees were given their copies, and bottles of champagne were opened to toast to the successful conclusion of this project and to the start of future ones.
Then the updated and new pages of the Longshanks website were put online (the TRoL-CD-page, the Homepage and the Music-page) and, of course, the CD was played!

As of this moment, the CD can be ordered via the Longshanks website! To do so, visit the Music page.

The Longshanks CD will be out soon!

Today. the last part of the CD artwork, the booklet, was sent to the printshop. Consequently a few pages of the Longshanks website have been updated as well, e.g. some of the songs images.
The illustration for "In the Desert" was edited: thunder clouds and lightning have been added to the landscape.
The small painting for "The Bath Song" has been replaced by a homemade image (a 3D modeling project in Lightwave-9)

Besides that, the image for the cover of the CD booklet was finished as well: it comprises several imaging techniques:
- landscape modeling in Terragen
- extensive 3D modeling in Lightwave
- handpainted foreground scenery
- compositing in Photoshop

Release of "I Love the Road"

For the last recorded track of the CD "the Return of Longshanks": "I Love the Road", a photo collage was made to express the atmosphere and feel of the song.
This 5:08 minutes track is a true 'road song': an up-tempo rock song, influenced by the likes of Micheal Schenker (a song that makes you want to push the pedal to the metal!). The image was composed of three seperate elements: the landscape, the car and the driver, all cemented together in Photoshop.
