With Thanksgiving behind us, we can finally breathe and start taking in this 2018 offseason as fall band quiets down and the WGI/DCI rehearsal schedules pick up. I thought I'd put together a quick update since we've been doing a lot of planning behind the scenes to get some pretty cool content over the next couple months and we're ready to share some of that.
Over the past few months, we've been going through the process of hiring a new content creator to the team and have been completely overwhelmed with impressive candidates. That should be wrapped up soon.
Let's get into the good stuff now.
Boston Crusaders "S.O.S." Archive Available
Years have gone into making it possible for FloMarching to offer a video on demand (VOD) solution for the marching arts. We are excited to have achieved this step, and there will be more to come.
You can now view the Boston Crusaders performing their 2018 production "S.O.S" at DCI World Championship finals.
ONYX: A Three Part Series
We are re-releasing a docu-series about the Winter Guard International phenomenon that is Onyx. After a few months of a portion being tied up in copyright law, we are now able to release the second and third episodes to complete the series produced by FloFilms. Get an intimate look into the mind of Michael Lentz and learn about the institution that is Onyx.
Check out the full raw interview (with minor cuts) with Creative Director Michael Lentz.
As I said before, we've been planning a few trips for December and January that are going to be pretty cool. In mid-December, we will be traveling to Arcadia, CA to get a very early look at the Mandarins. The corps will be holding their last audition camp for the 2019 corps throughout the weekend. We will be talking with designers to see what they have in store to follow up last year's historical season and keep their name in finals.
In January, we will be out in Los Angeles to hang out with some indoor percussion groups. How about a visit to Remo, Vic Firth, Ziljian and more? It's all on the way. And then, before you know it, it'll be WGI season.
