The filmmakers behind La Barracuda share their secrets to filming and recording live music in their OCFF-winning narrative feature.All images via La Barracuda.There’s an undeniable power to films that find creative ways to feature music as an integral part of a film’s narrative. One recent example is La Barracuda, a “slow-burn Texas thriller brimming with tension and a lot of music,” which screened at the Oak Cliff Film Festival, fresh off of its lauded premiere at SXSW a few months earlier.Filmmakers Jason Cortlund and Julia Halperin (who are pictured below receiving the narrative feature award and prize package at the OCFF) had to find creative ways to make a musical world come to life within a film that is deeply rooted in the rich country and folk music scene in Austin, Texas.It was important to us that the performances and music culture be woven into the story in natural and subtle ways because we trust our audience to know better — and music’s really the key to understanding the story.’ Within a limited indie budget, we were tasked with finding a way to record ‘live’ music to create scenes and atmosphere that looked, felt, and most importantly, sounded true to form.If you’re looking to tug your audience’s heart strings by using “live” music on a project of your own, you may want to check out these filmmakers’ tips before recording.You Don’t Have to Fake It to Make ItWhen we started casting, we were committed to finding someone who could act, sing, and play guitar for the lead role of Sinaloa. But there were lots of people along the way pushing us to consider casting a bigger name actress and just faking the guitar playing scenes with inserts of a hand double. While that would have potentially made the film much easier to finance, it would strip out the heart of what we were going after.One of the most endearing aspects of a film like La Barracuda is the authenticity of its characters and their relationships with the music in the film. Lead actress Sophie Reed‘s character (Sinaloa) actually performed her songs herself — which can both be helpful and problematic.Know Your RightsWe knew that negotiating song licenses can be tricky and expensive, so we brought in a music supervisor during development. History is littered with films that can’t be distributed because of music rights issues. We had to be careful and not get our hearts set on any song in particular until we knew we could afford the license. We also learned that the public domain can be tricky — while traditional lyrics might be free to use, a specific musical arrangement may require its own license.Using music in films, even original compositions, can get tricky very quickly in terms of licensing. It’s important, as in the case of La Barracuda, to do your research and work with a music supervisor from the very beginning — lest you film scenes with live music that you can’t actually use in your final cut.Camera and Sound Departments Need to Work TogetherThe camera can be a bully. Because the frame gets so much attention in terms of lighting and mise en scene, the sound department can become a whipping boy — forced to always make compromises that must then be reconciled in post. Not only does this just forestall dealing with a problem, it also makes for a bummer crew dynamic. As directors, we consciously try to treat sound and camera (and all departments) with equal respect.As any sound mixer will tell you, this certainly rings true on all sets. Cinematography seems to always be the head honcho; however, for a film whose soul is the music, it takes a special relationship between sound and camera departments — expertly demonstrated by La Barracuda‘s director of photography (Jonathan Nastasi) and sound mixer (Paul Toohey). Their collaboration found a way to balance the two elements masterfully.Use the Board In addition to multi-track field recordings of live music performances (often with lavs inside every instrument, and on every singer, and a double boom), when we were in venues like The Saxon Pub or The Old Coupland Dancehall, we made use of their in-house mixing boards as well. We had brought in live-event sound mixers to capture secondary recordings from the board feed via the house mics — which gave us many more options in post (as well as clean recordings for a potential soundtrack release).This is actually a pretty clever workaround as a way to record “live” music authentically while making opportunistic use of the environment. While not every scene will be in a bar or concert venue, that doesn’t mean board mixing is out of the question. Having a board on set can often be a great tool for balancing everything from music to recording dialogue.Have Faith — Music Will Add LayersWhile the musical elements definitely added layers of cost and complexity to the production, they’re also the soul of the film. We shot our first live song on day three, and we could see the lights go on with all our crew — someone literally said “Oh! THIS is the film we’re making.” It instantly made everyone so happy, and it drew us together for the rest of the show. Overhearing our key grip (a burly, tattooed dude who goes by “Animal”) humming a sweet Mastersons tune as he loaded the truck that night gave us all the reassurance we needed — the effort would pay dividends in screen pleasure.At the end of the day, the choice to use music in the film depends on how much it can add to the story and overall production. Not every project needs “live” music scenes (as they can be quite tricky). However, in the case of La Barracuda, it proves that going the extra mile to record authentic music performances can create something unique that audiences (and the crew) can feel.Samuel Goldwyn Films picked up La Barracuda, it will see a theatrical release in the U.S. this fall.

Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores: We’re looking for some kind of styleby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveWatford boss Quique Sanchez Flores admits their performance was not good enough in their 2-0 defeat at Wolves.Matt Doherty’s opener was added to by Daryl Janmaat’s own goal after the break, which saw Wolves pick up three points and rise up the table. The Hornets head coach said: “We knew today would be a different match [to the defeat at Manchester City] and it would be tough. It’s not enough, it’s clear the performance should be better.“Now we are looking for some kind of style, some way we’re going to play, but at the moment we’re not playing in that way. We concede very easy goals and these destroy all the plans. We are playing [catch-up] behind the score so it’s difficult for the players right now.”Asked what it would take to turn the corner, Sanchez Flores responded: “Winning. We need to win. We need to train hard, we need to improve, we’re stronger on the training ground every single day but in the matches we still have problems, we have insecurities, we have situations we can’t solve, easy mistakes giving opportunities to the opponent.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

zoom Cruise ship owner Viking Cruises unveiled plans for a liquid hydrogen-fuelled cruise ship in an effort to develop the world’s first cruise ship with zero-emission technology.Serge Fossati, project manager at the shipping company, presented the plans at the Norwegian Maritime Authority’s Safety at Sea Conference in Haugesund.To feature a length of around 230 metres, the cruise ship would be able to accommodate more than 900 passengers and a crew of 500.“This is a world sensation. Very exciting. If they pull this off, a distribution network may be established, which will enable others as well to use hydrogen as fuel, and could contribute to a zero-emission shipping industry,” Olav Akselsen, Director General of Shipping and Navigation, said.Viking Cruises envisions constructing a ship based on the same design as their seagoing cruise ships, such as the recently delivered Viking Sun. Additionally, the shipping company informed that the hydrogen ship would be registered in the Norwegian Ship Registers (NIS) if it is realised, and is already in dialogue with the Norwegian Maritime Authority.“As a Norwegian and with Norwegian ships, we want to lead the way to zero-emission ships through fuel cell technology. The road to that point is still long, but here at Viking we want to be ahead of the game,” Torstein Hagen, Chairman of Viking Cruises, said.So far, liquid hydrogen has not been used as marine fuel. One of the technical challenges is to maintain the fuel at minus 253 degrees to keep it from evaporating. A fuel cell will convert the hydrogen to electricity for propulsion and electric power on board.At present, liquid hydrogen is not produced on a large scale in Europe, but Fossati explained that Viking Cruises is in dialogue with Statoil in order to find a solution based on a Norwegian refinery. It also emerged that the shipping company wants to use Norwegian suppliers for the project, as far as possible. Several tender ships to carry the fuel to the cruise ship are also part of the project, according to the Norwegian Maritime Authority.
LAS VEGAS — A Nevada judge says documents about allegations of sexual misconduct against former casino mogul Steve Wynn will stay secret, at least temporarily, despite Massachusetts Gaming Commission efforts to make them public.Commission lawyers, its investigations chief and an attorney for Wynn’s former company Wynn Resorts didn’t immediately say Friday in Las Vegas whether the ruling will stall a decision about the suitability of the company to run a $2 billion casino and hotel near Boston.Clark County District Court Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez extended a temporary ban on releasing documents that Wynn’s lawyers say are a confidential.The Massachusetts commission obtained the documents in a probe of how the company handled reports that Wynn engaged in sexual misconduct with female employees.Wynn denies wrongdoing. He sued in November to keep the documents secret.Ken Ritter, The Associated Press

Ghaizbad/GB Nagar: With just a couple of days left for Ghaziabad and Gautam Buddh Nagar districts to go polling, the star campaigners and big names of various political parties are leaving no stone unturned and are conducting massive rallies to attract voters in their own ways.A massive gathering of crowd was witnessed at Ramleela Maidaan in Kavi Nagar area of Ghaziabad, where thousands of people thronged the rally organised by Samajwadi Party Chief Akhilesh Yadav campaigning for their candidate, Suresh Bansal, for Ghaziabad Lok Sabha seat. Addressing public on the occasion, Yadav lashed out at BJP government on employment, farmer’s issues and spreading falsehood among people. “The leaders of Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) are only busy in spreading false achievements while none of the promises of their manifesto turned a reality. All the major infrastructure projects in Ghaziabad district, including the single pillar elevated road, metro line extension from Dilshad Garden to New Bus stand in Ghaziabad, were completed in the rein of Samajwadi Party. However, the present Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath is just cutting ribbons and taking credit. There are no new development works started by the BJP government in past couple of years while those which were incomplete in our rein are still incomplete,” said Yadav. Yadav added that the leaders of BJP party may talk about Smart City Ghaizbad but don’t know the condition of slum and backward areas in Ghaziabad where people are still facing a havoc in their day to day life. Another rally was conducted by BSP supremo Mayawati in Knowledge park area of Greater Noida on Monday afternoon. Over 25,000 people gathered in the ground to hear the campaign speech. Addressing a packed ground, Mayawati slammed the BJP’s “Chowkidar” campaign, calling it a gimmick from a government. “The BJP government used to come up with something new as they came up as chaiwala and asked youths to to start the business of frying pakoras and now they have come as chowkidar. Instead of creating job opportunities, which they had promised in previous elections, they are motivating youths to become chowkidars or fry pakoras,” said Mayawati. She further lambasted the government for their decision such as Demonetisation and GST which she claimed to have broken the back bone of businessman and middle class people. In yet another effort to attract voters, BJP candidate Gen (retd) VK Singh also conducted a road show in Ghaziabad’s old City area along with Uttrakhand Chief Minister Trivender Singh Rawat. The political rally of Congress leader Sachin Pilot’s in Ghaziabad was cancelled due to unavoidable circumstances at the last moment on Monday and is expected to take place on Tuesday.
