Rozatones Press Kit DVD Cover

The Rozatones have relocated to New York City and have been packing each venue they’ve preformed at. They have performed at big name spots like Sullivan Hall, the Canal Room, and The Bitter End and its looking like nothing can stop this force of soul & funk. The Rozatones have recently chosen Moving Box Studios to create their first press kit to send out to record labels and booking agents here in the big city. The Rozatones are no longer a small town band anymore after recently winning a Magic Hat sponsorship for their “Body on the Move” album release and tour. The group has since added two new members giving them a new, more powerful sound. The Rozatones are a unique band with a powerful sound and they chose Moving Box to help them illustrate that talent and professionalism and bring them one step closer to stardom.

AYURVEDA- H. LUMINOUS RECORD RELEASE

6 08 2010

The storyline of H. luminous grew from front man Tom Buchinal’s own study of the 2012 phenomenon. “I began reading, listening, and watching everything I could about the Maya and their culture,” he says. “As soon as I would close one door, another would open. I got very much into the observance of shamanism and began to practice a little on my own. At the time, I had no clue what I was doing. I suppose I still don’t. But H. luminous is about this re-emerging contemporary shamanic vision and practice, being experienced and shared concurrently by more and more people every day. People whom I believe are the direct precursors to the emergence of Homo luminous.” (For more of Burchinal’s musings on the creation of H. luminous, see the album package.)
The music on H. luminous had a similarly intuitive, exploratory origin. Ayurveda’s four instrumentalists actually set out to write that most elusive of things for a progressive rock band, a four-minute single. But the music took them elsewhere, and soon the whole band realized that something much more ambitious was taking shape. Mystical, atmospheric sounds in some parts of the album call to mind Radiohead; other more ponderous and titanic sections evoke the power of Led Zeppelin and the primal virtuosity of Tool. H. luminous was recorded live in the studio, with the four instrumentalists playing together and only the vocals overdubbed later. Burchinal’s parts were added in a similar style later, with all lead and harmony vocals recorded in a single four-hour session. The aim was to capture the intuitive, collaborative vibe in which the album was written.

Behind the Scenes: Interns!

27 04 2009

Hello, world.

This is Steve, a current all-purpose animation intern at Moving Box Studios. My creative director Chris Davidson wants to give you all some insight into what us interns actually do (i.e. not watch cartoons all day), so here’s some insider info.

I had my hands on the pilot episode of Java, correcting colors and whatnot. Java refused to “pop” against the background in his drab duds. We can’t have our title character blending into the background, so I created a bunch of alternative palettes. I consulted with Chris on what the final color choice should be, and after picking it, I went to town in Adobe Flash changing each instance of Java to the new palette by Cmd + I’ing and Cmd + K’ing everything into submission. Repetitive? Eh, maybe, but it seriously helps develop an eye for color, attention to detail, and, well, using Flash in general. Java will be coming to your screen this summer… so I better hop to it.

That’s all for now. Cheers!
