Normally, Lee Sanders would occupy this space with a few thoughts to get your noggin’ spinning about the way you conduct yourself in this business of film music. He’ll be back next week to challenge you with an all new Weekend Provocation.
Right now, though, I have a HUGE announcement to make…
Last year, over Memorial Day weekend, we launched SCOREcastOnline.com. The idea for a SCOREcast website seemed like the obvious move in the natural progression from the SCOREcast podcast episodes, and felt like a necessary step toward our goal of bringing the professional film music community closer.
At the time of the launch, we weren’t sure if an SCO site would be a raging success, or go over like a lead balloon. I’m happy to report that because of your loyalty as subscribers, the word of mouth that makes our industry the great harbor that it is, and quality, consistent content from the best people working in film music, you have grown this website community to over 40,000 hits… PER DAY.
And this weekend, we’ll be upping the ante again.
We are moving the site to a new host and making a significant site modification to SCO on Saturday night. If you visit SCO between 4pm (PST) Saturday and Sunday evening, you might find it to be “down for maintenance” or, in the case of whatever browser you might be using, you’ll encounter a “this site cannot be found” error message.
Don’t worry—we are simply uploading the new website and we will be back with a vengeance on Monday morning, bright and early.
I can’t spill too many beans here (you’ll be pleasantly surprised Monday morning, I’m certain of it!), but this simple yet significant “next-level” modification to the way we do chicken around here will set SCO up for the next several years of growth, killer written content, audio and video (!) podcast episodes, and many more exciting features that we wouldn’t be able to offer you if we were to simply stay put and maintain the status quo.
But then again… we aren’t really the type to do *that* anyway!
Thank you—from the bottom of my heart—for making SCO such a runaway success. If we can do this in one year, imagine what we can do in two!
All my best,
