UMike Baldassari (umthombo: Jonsar Studios)

UMike Baldassari ungumklami wesibani owaziwayo futhi ohlonishwa kakhulu wesiteji nefilimu. Muva nje ngithole ithuba lokuxoxisana naye ngokuningiliziwe ngezinto azifeze kahle nangezifiso eziningi.

"Ngiyaziqhenya ukusho ukuthi ngingumqambi wezibani zikaTony no-Emmy oqokwe umsebenzi wakhe owenziwe wabonwa emazweni angaphezu kwe-25," kungitshela uMike. “Ngaphezu kokuqamba imibukiso yeBroadway efana cabaret (1998 & 2014), Izingane ZikaNkulunkulu Omncane, Futhi Usuku Lokuqala, Ngidale isibani semidlalo yaseshashalazini yamafilimu Ghostbusters (Uhlobo lwe-2016), Nine, IDwala lamaNyaka, Umsindo Ojabulayo, Futhi I-Neil Young Trunk Show, phakathi kwabanye. Imiklamo yami yethelevishini ifaka iSizini 2 ye Isimenywa Sami Esilandelayo SikaDavid Letterman Asikho Isingeniso, lo I-RED Live ikhonsathi / ukusakaza kusuka ku-Times Square nge-U2 neBruce Springsteen, i-U2's Phezulu kweDwala ukusebenza kwe The Tonight Show, iziqephu ze Idokhumenti manje!, kanye namateyipu we Saturday Night Live futhi Late Night ne uSeti Meyers. Ngihlelele izipesheli zeNetflix zikaJohn Mulaney, uRay Romano, uJoe Rogan, uDana Carvey, nezinto ezizayo zikaHannibal Buress noChris D'Elia. Emhlabeni wezomculo, ngisebenzise ama-Eves New Year's's Eves nge-Phish kwa-MSG, kanye nama-Concert Tours ka-Neil Young no-Alice emaChains. Ngokwengeziwe, ngakhelele amakhonsathi e-televised; UMary J. Blige, uTim McGraw, uSam Smith noGarth Brooks. ”

U-Baldassari wangitshela ukuthi waqala kanjani njengomklami wokukhanyisa. “Ngenkathi ngisesesikoleni esiphakeme ngangidlala emabhendi futhi ngisebenza ngisebenza njengomdlali wesigubhu. IParsippany Hills High School yayinohlelo lwezobuciko oluhle kakhulu, futhi ngagcina ngichitha isikhathi esiningi ngangisebenza endaweni yemidlalo yeshashalazi lapho ngabamba khona isibuko sokukhanyisa. Ngiqhubeke nezifundo zami zemidlalo yaseshashalazini e-University of Connecticut, kwathi ngisesemkhulu, ngamukelwa kuhlelo lwe-United Scenic Artists 829 internship. Ngemuva kwalokho, ngangihamba ngigijima! Kimi, bekuyinqubekela phambili yemvelo ukusuka kumculi kuya kumklami wokukhanyisa, njengoba ngisabandakanyeka nomculo cishe nsuku zonke. Ngibheka ukuba uMklami Wezikhanyiso njengoba empeleni ngiyi-'orchestrator,' ngaphandle kokuthi, ngisebenzise izinsimbi zomculo ezinjengezinsimbi zomculo noma izigingci, ngisebenzisa izibani ezihambisanayo neminye imithombo ukuhlela umculo noma okunye ukubonwa kwaseshashalazini. ”

Ngabuza uMike mayelana nokuthi yimiphi imikhiqizo nemidlalo yaseshashalazini ayithola ikhumbuleka noma waziqhenya kakhulu ngayo. "Benginobudlelwano bonyaka we-20-plus nokukhiqizwa kweBroadway kwe cabaret, njengoba eqokwe kanye noPeggy Eisenhauer ukuthola umklomelo weTony e1998 ngawo. Sabe sakha kabusha imvuselelo yokugcina e-2014. Ngesikhathi siqala, bekuqondiswa ngokubambisana yilezi zinganyana ezimbili ezibizwa uSam Mendes noRob Marshall. (Ngiyazibuza ukuthi kwenzekeni kulaba bantu?) Sigcine ukwenza izinkambo eziningi nokuzikhiqizela emhlabeni jikelele. Akunakusho ukuthi, ukukhiqizwa kwethu bekunguquko-lomdlalo kangangokuthi kuzoqhubeka nokuthonya konke ukukhiqiza okulandelayo okuke kwenziwe cabaret. Enye into ngokuba nobudlelwano obude nomdlalo owodwa ukuthi kuyasiza ukuthi kunjalo I-Cabaret—omunye womculo omkhulu waseMelika wesikhathi sonke, ngakho-ke lolu hambo ngokuqinisekile aluzange lube isidina.

"Ngokuqondene namafilimu, ngaphandle kokungabaza, ngizofaka ukukhiqiza kukaRob Marshall Nine khona lapho! Ngikhanyise izinombolo zomculo ze14 ezikule filimu, ngisebenza ngqo nomdidiyeli we-cinematograph uDion Beebe noRob, lapho sobathathu sasebenzisana kakhulu ekubukekeni umzuzwana ngamunye. Zonke izinombolo zomculo zidutshulwe esiteji esikhulu somsindo eShepperton Studios eLondon, lapho isethi yayilingana nenkundla yebhola. Yifilimu ebukekayo enesiteji esimangalisayo, eholwa nguDaniel Day Lewis enama-co-star uSophia Loren, uDame Judy Dench, uNicole Kidman, uPenelope Cruise, uFergie, uKate Hudson, noMarion Cotillard. Ngaphezu kokukhanyisa ukulandelana okukhulu kakhulu komculo, umkhondo ngamunye ubuye nezinombolo zawo ezifakiwe. Ngokuyisisekelo yonke inamba yomculo bekufanele ibekwe ngendlela yemidlalo, yingakho uRob engilethele. Wayefuna umqambi ongakhanyisela ifilimu sengathi ngabe siyibeka esiteji seBroadway, futhi uyazi ukuthi siyakhuluma ulimi olufanayo. Kwakuyisimo esingalibalekiyo! ”

Izikweletu zikaBaldassari zifaka nokuklama imibukiso yenkampani ye-CBS Television. Ungichazile ukuthi wayithola kanjani leyo gig. "Umkhiqizi omkhulu we I-CBS Phambili wabona cabaret futhi bafinyelela lapho bezama ukuthuthukisa amanani abo wokukhiqiza. Ngokuhamba kwesikhathi, imibukiso iye yaba yinkimbinkimbi eyengeziwe futhi siqhubekele umkhawulo walokho okungenziwa eCarnegie Hall. Enye yezinselelo ezinkulu esivame ukubhekana nazo kule phrojekthi ukwenza ukuthi umbukiso ubukeke umnandi esixukwini saseMadison Avenue egumbini, kanye nekhamera, njengoba lombukiso usakazwa kwezinye izindawo eziseduze nase-US. Ukuze ngifinyelele isilinganiso esifanele sokukhanyisa bukhoma nangekhamera, ngisebenza kakhulu kakhulu kunjiniyela wevidiyo uBilly Steinberg. Umdanso esiwenzayo uqinisekisa ukuthi akukho ukuyekethisa okubonakalayo kunoma izithameli. ”

Ephendula umbuzo wami wokuthi hlobo luni lwezinto zokukhanyisa nesoftware yakhetha ukusebenza nayo, uBaldassari uthe, "Ngasohlangothini lwesoftware, ithuluzi eliyinhloko lokusebenzisa ama-Vectorworks kuyo yonke imidwebo yethu ne-3D. Okwamaphepha ahambisanayo phakathi komklami ne-gaffer, kuhlala kungukukhanya okulula, ebengilokhu ngikusebenzisa kusukela kwaqhamuka ngenkathi ngisekolishi. Lezi zinhlelo ezimbili manje zisebenza ngokuhlelekile komthungo. Njengoba ingxenye ye-3D yeVectorworks iqhubeka nokuthuthuka kuze kube manje njengoba ibaluleke kakhulu njengengxenye yenqubo yokuklama ukukhiqizwa kwangaphambili, umbono wayo wengxenye yokuqala Umbono manje usukhula uba yingxenye yomsebenzi wethu. Ngokuyisisekelo singakwazi ukuhamba kalula ekwakheni isakhiwo sethu sokukhanya nemidwebo yobuchwepheshe, ku-3D njengengxenye yeVectorworks, bese sithekelisa ifayela le-CAD ku-Vision, lapho singaqala khona ukwakha izinkomba ngqo kukhonsoli yokukhanyisa bese siqala ukuletha umbono wokudala we design ukukhanyisa empilweni.

“Ngokuvamile ohlangothini lwezinto zokusebenza, ngiyaqhubeka nokuhamba ngisiya emithonjeni ye-LED nokulungiswa okuzenzakalelayo, okuya ngokuya kukhula kufana. Ngihlala ngithanda ukuba nekhono lokushintsha umbala kanye nenketho yokulungisa ukugxila kwesilayidi nge-programmer esikhundleni se-ladder. Ngicabanga ukuthi njengabaculi kubalulekile ukuqhubeka nokucacisa amathuluzi asebenza ngokwengeziwe namandla futhi acindezele abakhiqizi emikhiqizweni eluhlaza okotshani. Izinga lokushintshwa liyaqhubeka lishesha kodwa lesi yisikhathi esijabulisayo, njengoba abakhiqizi bebelokhu bephendula ngemishini engcono nengcono eminyakeni embalwa edlule. Sekukonke, ngingasho ukuthi ikhwalithi yokulungiswa okusekwe kwi-LED iyaqhubeka nokwenza ngcono.

“Njengoba ngenza amaphrojekthi ahlukahlukene kakhulu, amathuluzi engiwacacisayo angahlukahluka, ngoba asikho isisombululo esilingana zonke-zonke ezinkingeni eziningi zokukhanyisa. Noma kunjalo, ngiyazi noma nini lapho ngibizwa, athi, a Late Night ne uSeti Meyers Itheyipu yangaphambilini ekude, kaningi kunalokho, iphakethe lizoqala nge-Arri Skypanels. Uma ngikhanyisa iNetflix ekhethekile njengoDavid Letterman's Isithandwa Sami Esilandelayo Asidingi Isingeniso lokho kufaka i-backwall esetshenziswa njenge-cyc, cishe ngizoqala ngokulungiswa kwe-cyc Chroma-Q Colour Force II. Ngasohlangothini lokulawula, ngizohlala ngibonisana ne-Moving Light Programer yami, kepha kuvame ukubonakala ngathi sifika endaweni ethile noma ngabe nge-ETC Eco-system noma uhlobo oluthile lwe-GrandMA 2. Yize kungalungele ngokuphelele yonke iphrojekthi, ngokuvamile ezisebenzayo zingcono kakhulu. ”

Baldassari wenza umhlangano for I-NAB Bonisa ENew York ngempelasonto edlule kubizwe “Inselelo ye-LED yeFilimu neTelevishini,” ngakho-ke sikwenzile lokho engxoxweni. “Bekungokokuqala ngqa ukuthi ngibe sengimenyiwe ukuba yingxenye ye-NAB,” echaza. “Selokhu ngaqala embonini bengilokhu ngizwa ngakho, ikakhulukazi kubachwepheshe abahlonishwayo, ngakho-ke ngibheke phambili ekuzibonele ngawami!

“Lapho ngisondela enkulumweni yami ngibona umbono womklami, ngithinte kafushane ukuthi kungani sifinyelela ezingeni lokuthi ama-LED abe wusizo kithi hhayi emidlalweni yaseshashalazini nasekubukweni kwamadwala, kodwa kuthelevishini nakwifilimu. Njengomunye wabakhiqizi bokukhanyisa abambalwa 'be-crossover' abasebenza kuyo yonke le mikhakha, bengilandela ukuba khona kwama-LED okwesikhashana manje. Kukhona izinzuzo ezisobala zokusebenzisa ama-LEDs ukuthinta; ukusetshenziswa kwamandla, ukuvumelana nezimo, njll., kepha bengifuna ukuthinta ezinye izinselelo engihlangabezane nazo. Ngabelane ngama-anecdotes athile ngezinkinga ezaqhamuka, nokuthi senzeni ukuwaxazulula. Iqiniso ukuthi, ukulungiswa kwe-LED lapha kuzohlala-futhi ngenkathi abanye abakhiqizi bekutholile, kusekhona izimo lapho kudingeka siphendule ezinseleleni ezingaba khona nokusebenzisa insimbi enamapulangwe amane kuyo! Izithameli zami engangigxile kuzo bekungowanoma ngubani ocwilisa uzwane echibini le-LED, kubavoti abangomakadebona abafuna ukuba nesixazululo engqondweni uma kunenkinga kuphrojekthi yabo. ”

Baldassari waphetha le ngxoxo ngokungitshela ngamaphrojekthi akhe azayo. "Okwamanje, ngine-Netflix ekhethekile yeHannibel Buress emgqonyeni esedlule ukuthi siwadubule ehlobo eMiami, futhi njengamanje ngakha enye iNetflix ekhethekile kaChris D'Elia esiyicubungula eMinneapolis ekuqaleni kukaNovemba. Kukhona iphrojekthi yefilimu umculi we-choreologist angicele ukuba ngikhanyise ukuthi kuyasakazeka. Ngasohlangothini lweshashalazi, ngingumqambi wokukhanyisa nowokukhiqiza ochungechungeni lweBroadway olubizwa Esihlalweni, esithemba ukubuyisa intwasahlobo elandelayo. Umbukiso wohlobo lomkhosi ku-Broadway lapho singaletha khona inqwaba yabaculi ngokugijima okulinganiselwe. Uhlobo lokuqala kuleli hlobo eledlule lwaphumelela kakhulu. Sibe nabaculi abahlukahlukene njengoMorrissey, uMel Brooks, uDave Chappelle, noBarry Manilow. Isihluthulelo sokwenza lolu chungechunge lusebenze uhlelo lokukhanyisa esilibiza ngokuthi yi-'Flex-i-Fest '™ lapho, sisebenzisana ne-LD yesenzo ngasinye, sikwazile ukunika umdwebi ngamunye isithombe sabo, esiyingqayizivele sokukhanya ngaphandle kokulayisha futhi khipha imibukiso ehluke ngokuphelele. Ekuguqukeni kokugcina esikwenzile, uhlelo lokukhanyisa lwasuka endaweni eyingqayizivele kaDave Chappelle yaya ku-Barry Manilow's ngaphansi kwamahora amabili. Isebenze kahle kangangokuba i-PRG nenkampani yami bafake imvume yobunikazi kuyo. Yibheke entwasahlobo elandelayo kwenye i-Broadway theatre! Ngemuva kwalokho kube nemicimbi emibili yemidlalo okufanele iphume ngesizini ezayo. "
