Comic Book Jobs: Who’s Hiring? The Stan Lee Orchestra!

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, Marvel Comics

Stan LeeNot everybody who’s part of the comic book industry is writing, drawing, coloring, lettering or editing or blogging about writing, drawing, coloring, lettering or editing. There’s plenty of room for lawyers and accountants and guys who drive the trucks for Diamond Comic Distributors (and those guys are essential). But now there’s also an opportunity for anyone who can tap out a tune on a keytar, slap a bow on a violin or a blow a French horn.

I didn’t know this, or if I did, I’d forgotten it, but there’s apparently a Stan Lee documentary in the works called With Great Power. I believe this is different from the one called True Believer: The Stan Lee Documentary.

The folks behind the With Great Power doc are putting together “talented score musicians” which, unfortunately, are not guitar players who know how to make women pay their rent, but skilled musicians who want to be in the orchestra that’s scoring the film.

If you’re “skilled at your craft, non-union and can sight-read” and want to be part of the 90-piece non-union mighty marching band, I mean orchestra, currently being assembled for a 1-day session in mid-March over at the Warner Brothers’ Eastwood Stage, then some producers would like to hear from you – by email first, then they’ll listen to your pulse-pounding tuba triumph .


USB Virtual Maestro Tours

ConductorWhen everyone else is playing Guitar Hero, are you the type that secretly wants to lead an orchestra? Then the USB Virtual Maestro is for you. Designed to get kids interested in music, Teresa Nakra and her team of programmers with Immersion Music came up with software that will speed up or slow down the orchestra with the use of a Nintendo Wii remote. The project includes a free-standing wall, a speaker, and a 42-inch plasma screen displaying the music makers.

Two of the games have been on tour around the States since November and there is a chance that it will hit Europe this summer. We are thinking that if they get enough support, the team will try to come up with one for consumer use.
