So if you didn’t know we are in the middle of preproduction of Awoke the musical and it’s been a great journey. We have been diligent in creating this too be one that many will enjoy. Over the weekend myself, photographer Lina Baker and makeup artist Melissa Mosqueda along with actor,comedian Jamaal White got together at one of my favorite spots in the city Germantown Espresso Bar for the Awoke: The Musical covet shoot. It was fun just watching the process. Makes it even more curious as to seeing the final look of this when it all said and done.
Our choices of music for the production has been the challenge that I felt would be the thing that would bring the story together. For me that was a no brainer but to bring onboard creatives such as Vince Brown and Rugrat Nam to create the sounds and songs we felt would not only be direct in pulling together the story but holding on to the crowds attention as well.
With music it often becomes the life journey of a play and or film. As Karen’s work we all felt the need to make sure each piece represented not just the characters being portrayed but the ones that most likely would relate to them as well. We only have two more songs to go before we are done with the soundtrack but boy what a collaborative journey this one is for us all. Our casting went well and for the next blog we will talk about the cast.
