I was introduced to Eric Whitacre’s Virtual Choir through a music-loving lynda.com author who had seen the video Lux Arumque on YouTube, and had written to find out more about the project.
It turns out that Scott Haines, the producer and editor of Lux Arumque, had relied heavily upon his lynda.com membership and our After Effects training tutorials to complete his truly massive project.
I was able to reach Scott via a Skype video call this past weekend to talk to him directly about his story. I hope you enjoy.
And by the way, please forgive the choppy edits of this interview. I was so excited to share Scott’s story with you that I conducted the interview in Skype, and used iMovie ’09 Essential Training to learn how to edit this together. It was my first editing attempt.
And now, for really impressive editing and production, here’s Lux Arumque, edited and produced by lynda.com member Scott Haines. Turn up your speakers and watch full-screen for the best effect.
For more information on Eric Whitacre’s projects, and Scott’s next editing jobs, check out Eric’s Facebook fan page, and Eric Whitacre’s Blog.
