Re: "Polaris"

I have no interest in seeing Dennis in a wig, bald was bad enough. I would like to know if we're going to be seeing a trailer of some sort though?

Thanks for the interest. Well, when we have an assembly of the film and enough effects work in place to have a good idea of the release date for the movie we'll put together a trailer. I wouldn't expect to have something like that ready any earlier than six months before we're finished.

Have you settled on a composer yet?

To be honest, that makes it sound like it's either him or no one at all. I don't know if that was your intent... but it comes off that way.

'Cause there's no way of knowing when they got their said composer, unless Dennis tells us. Though it is possible that they could of picked one up before Xortex even offered his services.

These things happen and in this universe, anything can happen. Maybe if they continue to do more episodes, they may ask Xortex to score it. Who knows?

I don't think cheap shots at anyone's expense is kind or helpful.

Re: "Polaris"

But fun nonetheless.. I am genuinely curious to hear his compositional skills put to the test.. I wonder if he'll want to get paid.

Re: "Polaris"

This brings up an interesting question ... we've seen the ship and some shots of the sets and actors; do you have any music clips from Polaris that can be shared yet?

Re: "Polaris"

The composer has done some preliminary work on a main theme, but it's basically exploratory material at this point, and something we're not ready to share at this early stage. The actual scoring must wait until major segments of the film are edited, because the composer needs to see the film in order to make decisions about the tone of the music.

That doesn't mean you don't secure the composer well in advance of when the music needs to be written.

And I wouldn't dream of suggesting otherwise. Just remember some of us love soundtracks as much as we love clever writing and jaw-dropping special effects. I'm eager to hear an original score, that's all.

In fact, I buy soundtracks all the time. Perhaps you should consider this as a potential source of additional income and put it up for sale on Amazon? Just a thought.

Re: "Polaris"

That would be up to the composer. We've asked for the rights to use elements created by the artists in the context of the movie and promotion, otherwise they belong to the creators. IOW, if the composer wants to sell his music, that's up to him. If Vektor and aridas wanted to have models made or sell drawings of the space, etc well, they own the designs - we don't.
