Happy New Year 2010 from Day For Night!

Eric & Austin Scott

First of all – thanks for letting me include you in this latest Day For Night newsletter, as we revisit the past year together, shamelessly self-promoting and trying to plug as many wonderful clients and friends as possible, while trying to thank everyone who helped make 2009 a success. I hope this finds you well in the New Year, and thank you again for your continued help, friendship and support.

2009 was a big year for us personally; Day For Night’s 11th year was also one of new beginnings, a baby boy named Austin David Scott, a move to a new, permanent location in Porter Ranch at the windy north end of the San Fernando Valley… all is very good at this time of reflection and rest, and we thank everyone for their ongoing support and patience during the slight delays throughout the year that had much to do with growth, and the beginnings of life. We expect 2010 to kick in without a hitch!

If you’d like to continue receiving the occasional update, please feel free to send a reply back, hopefully just to say ‘hi’ or to send any feedback this way, kind or otherwise. Please – if this newsletter is unnecessarily intrusive, then please forgive us and respond by simply unsubscribing (see below) No questions will be asked, no offence taken…

All the best,

Eric & Austin (Junior-Developer-In-Training)

Brand Experience, Digital Strategy & Custom Site Design

HerbAlpert_Music_03
Day For Night Multimedia announces the redesign of the official website of trumpeter, bandleader, producer and A&M Records co-founder Herb Alpert. As frontman for the legendary Tijuana Brass, Alpert rose up the charts during the 1960s with over 15 top-ten hits; many of their singles and albums pushing the Beatles out of the #1 spot. With business partner Jerry Moss, he created the legendary A&M Records; leading the Artist-as-Label-Owner movement in independent music.
-
Designed in joint association with Jim Kelley Design Group, this site represents three key dimensions of Herb Alpert, through his Music, visual Art – Alpert is an accomplished sculptor and painter – and life.

Eric Scott “My Nature” Download

Many thanks again to all of those who sent in their votes of support and encouragement on our submission of “My Nature” by Eric Scott, for the 2007 American Idol Songwriting Competition.

A jangling love song with a hooky chorus, “My Nature” is far less the kind of stuff AI finales are made of (…let’s face it – it’s not a power-ballad) – but easily sounds more at home with its 80s and 90s Britpop influences…

“Noel Crane” Official Felicity Site

NoelCrane.com – Flash edition (2000) and follow up to the successful mini-site created during the show’s first season. Digital Strategy, Art Direction and Design by Eric Scott (Day For Night).

Noel Crane has asked us to host his popular Flash site for him, and we are honored to have him on board. Cut. Ok, now, back to reality.

The personal homepage of Noel Crane, graphic designer, friend to Felicity Porter, and resident advisor at Kelvin Hall and all-around nice guy, was launched prior to his creation of Blumberg-Crane Design with business partner Sean. But an entire level of digital strategy preceded this site, when Day For Night helped to visualize a universe in which Noel, a fictitious character on the WB Network’s television show Felicity (created by J.J. Abrams and Matt Reeves), would come to life online as a character with a real life, real website, real feelings… you get the picture.

Salvador Dalek “Spelling Test Video Party"

DVD Launch Event

The evening of Saturday, May 20, 2006 marked the date for the Peter Moraites “Spelling Test” video album Launch Party, at Ocean Front Gallery, along the legendary henna-tatooed, roller-blading boardwalk in Venice, CA. Many thanks are due all-around to the friends who so kindly attended and contributed to the evening’s success.

After sundown, the courtyard space at 801 Ocean Front Walk rapidly became a buzzing outdoor lounge, complete with wine and appetizers, and illuminated by a pair of projection walls (one outdoor, the other inside the gallery) – and featuring a continual and mesmerising litany of classic music videos and intoxicating visuals throughout the night.

Inside the main gallery space, a hushed audience was treated to a soulful, pop acoustic set by Canadian artist Marianne Baker, after which came the anticipated, and warmly received screening of the video album/DVD “Spelling Test,” which comprises nine original Pete Moraites music/art videos, with soundtracks by Moraites (“Simpletongue”, “Twitterpation”, “Smokercraft”) and Salvador Dalek (Day For Night’s Eric Scott, remixing and collaborating with Moraites). The presentation was transformed by Moraites’ own closing speech; a poignant thanks to his closest collaborators – an inspirational hommage to the value of encouragement and the creative workshop process.

Eleven o’clock heralded the premiere live performance of Salvador Dalek (Eric Scott on laptop and mixing desk, with Pete Moraites providing visuals and live VJ-accompaniment throughout the set) – unleashing a storming set of progressive house, trance, and drum’n’bass remixes from the Day For Night back catalogue, spanning a breakneck-56-song live remix (in under an hour’s time) and highlighted by a glowing flute performance from soloist Kelly Wilson, during “Twitterpation” – another key highlight of the evening. Our ears are still ringing, and all in a good way.

The Salvador Dalek remix CD “Beat The Time (Day 055)” will be released soon, featuring highlights from this live set, plus a fully-remixed podcast of the set to also follow soon… Check back at this link for details very soon:
