All Good Things: Complete Track Listing

This final video which preceded the release of All Good Things includes the full track listing for the three CD set. Of the 76 tracks, only six were previously heard, and even then those were heard on TV appearances, and radio commercials.

The video also features the disc art, which Alma designed to be reminiscent of what labels Chad and Jeremy were signed to during the eras present on each disc.

All Good Things: Announcement Video

After Chad and Jeremy decided to compile and release their anthology, Alma designed all of the visuals for the project (more details in the post specifically related to the product’s release). In advance, the following video was released to promote the book and three CD set. The following video was made within After Effects.

As a note, this was a second version of the video as the number of books to be produced was increased to 300 from 100 due to popular demand.

Benefit for Owen Shelly

In summer 2016, Chad Stuart’s stepson Owen had to be hospitalized due to pulmonary hypertension. He was placed on the transplant list to receive a double-lung transplant. That transplant came sixty days after he entered the ICU and he is (at the time of this post) still in the hospital recovering from this massive operation.

A group of musicians organized a benefit concert for Owen to take place on July 31 at McCabes Guitar Shop in Santa Monica, CA. Alma attended the show to provide media support for the show as well as thank the artists and management who were involved. The entire show was streamed to Facebook Live (Part 1 and Part 2) and recorded in high definition video. Alma took photos throughout the show.

The post production for this footage needed to be fast, so Alma used mobile versions of Lightroom and Photoshop to process photos. Alma also created several titles within After Effects ahead of time so videos could be edited and published more quickly. Photos are still being posted to LilMarauder Productions’ Instagram page and one is linked below. Video links are coming soon.

DaVinci Resolve 12 Color Grading

Alma utilized online tutorials for DaVinci Resolve and taught herself the basics of color grading. The following video was underexposed and shot in the film dynamic range. Alma balanced the colors using the scopes within Resolve, and then added some selective saturation with the curve tools.

This grading allowed fine details of the tea-steeping process to become visible (see the rippling color on the top of the water).

Jeremy Clyde, Rick Jones, Valerie Neal: So Right Tonight

Jeremy Clyde on vacation in the US after the May 2015 tour. Last September, Rick Jones and Valerie Neal performed with Jeremy to launch his first solo album, The Bottom Drawer Sessions, No 1 (linked are details on my work on the album). This song is another from the bottom drawer.

This video was shot on my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera with a 7.5mm F/3.5 fisheye lens and edited in Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. Audio was recorded on a Tascam handheld recorder (on the table) and synced with video footage during post production.

Jeremy Clyde: Willow Weep for Me

The Chad and Jeremy tour scheduled in May 2015 was cut short by an emergency which left Chad unable to travel. Jeremy sang four songs on his own at the Cannery in North Las Vegas.

Chad has since had a successful knee replacement and we are all very happy for that.

This video was shot on my Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera with a 7.5mm F/3.5 fisheye lens and edited in Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 with effects created in Adobe After Effects.
