8/17/14 - Dee Dee Rocks the Galaxy film shoot and soundtrack
Hyperbubble has created yet another synth-driven soundtrack for a new sci-fi comedy musical mini-movie called Dee Dee Rocks the Galaxy! Here's a behind the scenes look:
Pete Barnstrom and Paul Vaughn from X Marks the Bot Films did an impressive job assembling a crew for the film. Here, one of the costume designers preps Dee Dee, the Hero of the film for the first scene.
Dee Dee is bored with her life of endless door-to-door Girl Scout Cookie sales attempts, filled with monotonous rejection. For this sequence, Hyperbubble recorded the ultimate in Emo-wimpiness; A song called "My Life Stinks...I Really Need a Change".
Dee Dee meets a mystery man who convinces her to take a magic potion which will teleport her to a more action-packed environment. This scene was shot at what was easily the oddest location in the entire film, San Antonio's legendary "Toilet Seat Art Museum".
Dee Dee is transported to the Kingdom of Korg on the Planet Theremin, shot at the Lila Cockrell Theatre, in downtown San Antonio. Jessica supplied spooky Theremin for this eerie discovery scene.
Dee Dee encounters the evil Emperor Korg and his Guitar Ninjas in a scene quite reminiscent of Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love" video.
A behind-the-scenes adjustment of the Emperor's costume, which was very much influenced by Ming the Merciless.
Another behind-the-scenes shot of Dee Dee preparing to do battle with Emperor Korg and his Ninjas. For this showdown sequence, Jeff (hiding off camera) had the actors sing along to a rough backing track, then brought it back to the studio for beefing up.
Dee Dee, having clobbered the Guitar Ninjas, reaches the top of the stairs to face-off with Korg.
Will the mad emperor persuade Dee Dee to join him in his evil plans? Will he convince her to return home to her boring life on Earth? Will Dee Dee finally get to sell some cookies? Or will she smash Korg into space dust?
