The Noh Garden DVD Is Finished!


All right. It took me longer than I thought it would to finish the DVD of "Noh Garden," but it is now done. We had a cast/crew viewing party last Friday, July 27, at the home of Matthew Smith, the music director. A number of guests also showed up. In the next month, I will be sending copies of the DVD to potential producers and others interested in working with me on this project. Those of you who contributed to the making of the film will receive your copies at the end of the month of August. Thanks again for your support.

I am looking for other composers to work with me on the remaining four plays. If you are interested, let me know (ken@ken-arnold.com). Also, let me know if you'd like to read any of the other four scripts and help locate a production venue for the plays. I am looking to put these on stage, not produce another film. The DVD is to help potential partners visualize what I have in mind.

The DVD for Noh Garden is basically done--a few tweaks to go. I'll be sending copies to subscribers in the (merry) month of May. Meanwhile, here's a brief trailer:

DVD Preview

After too many months, the production team for Noh Garden reviewed the rough cut of the DVD last night and agreed it is about ready to go. We have another day's worth of touchup editing to do. I hope to have it finished by about March 21. Some of you who have been following this project were kind enough to help us when we needed funds last summer for the filming. You will be receiving a copy of the DVD around April 1.

This is only the beginning of an experiment in creating a western form of Noh, based on Christian myth. Plans are underway to expand the project in exciting new directions. Watch this space for updates as we move ahead.
