Post-Flood Studio Upgrade

In December 2017, Mustang Recording Studios were flooded due to a burst pipe on the ground floor.

We are in the process of making Lemonade out of some pretty sour lemons. While insurance helps with some of the costs, we are in the process of upgrading the studio in some important ways.

Two key things are new wood floors and better professional wiring/routing. These were not on the immediate TO-DO-LIST. However, this unfortunate situation kind of created the situation that makes NOW the time to do these things.

TexasBigStar Launches Another Show

Bary Clower is an entertaining soul. He’s also a legit cowboy and ranch hand.

Mustang International’s TexasBigStar launches a new show based on Bary Clower’s practical wisdom as he educates his star pupil (one and only pupil) Brian B Barrett. The faux-institution BAR Y UNIVERSITY is where Professor Clower instructs his student on all things farm and ranch.

Video Assist Interview with Jordan Brady

In April 2014, Matt Wallace provided Video Assist support to a commercial production crew producing a series of new DODGE TV spots. Jordan Brady was the director, and he also produces a Podcast called “Respect for Process” that discusses commercial production.

During the last day of shooting, Jordan interviewed Matt about video assist services. Click here to visit Mustang International’s page regarding these services.

FYI: Jordan uses the terms “VTR” and “video assist” interchangeably – which is common in the industry. VTR is short for Video Tape Recording. Even though tape is no longer used on set to capture and playback images, the term “VTR” is still used to describe the function on set that originated with video tape machines and operators. A more accurate name for the actual function currently provided on set is “video assist” as it encompasses not only the recording and playback capabilities, but the service of providing high-quality video monitors for real-time viewing to assist the overall production.

Ain’t Them Bodies Saints

Mustang International assisted the director and production crew of Ain’t Them Bodies Saints as key scenes were shot on the Wallace farm in Bosque County. Producer Toby Halbrooks and Director David Lowery decided that the farm and area had the look they wanted for their movie. The farm was established in 1893 by Matt Wallace’s great-great-grandfather, and after multiple visits, the crew was supported by Mustang International for a multi-day shoot in the fall of 2012.

The first five scenes in the movie trailer, in addition to other scenes, were shot on the Wallace farm and were used to establish the appropriate look for a story set in central Texas.

Mourning the loss of Becky Moorhouse

Becky Moorhouse was a friend and gracious lady. She had provided some direction as we worked on an idea to produce a series of videos focused on the western lifestyle. As of today, that project has not been properly financially supported even though we continue to work towards this idea with hopes of producing the series someday.

We met Becky and Tom when we produced the Moorhouse Ranch episode of All Around Performance Horse Weekly for RFD-TV. That was always one of my favorite episodes and proudest achievements while producing that show.

Watch the video we produced of her as an advisor to Mustang International.

In mid-March, 2012, Becky passed on after a long bout with cancer. Link to obituary

On The Road

Executive Summary: Mustang International has started production on a documentary about two young people looking to work in the music industry while capturing the fun of a once-in-a-lifetime road trip.

On The Road: A Rock-n-Roll Journey is still in progress. From July 8 through July 24 of 2011, two young musicians traveled over 3000 miles and 11 states interviewing artists, musicians, producers and others in the music industry about what constitutes success and gathering advice as they start their careers in music.

Additional interviews are being conducted and all of the information and media collected during this once-in-a-lifetime journey are being compiled into a documentary book! Like many documentaries, one thing leads to another, and this project is still being processed with possible new material to be added before it’s conclusion.
