New sneak peek into the Max & Carlota score! It has been so moving to see how the music has shaped up and supported the movie. I really enjoy how Max's Speech has several elements which tell so much about his personality and the tragedy that he is under going.
What do you think of the music?
Here is some historical background on Max and Carlota from a section of Volume VI of Dr. Carroll's History of Christendom, The Crisis of Christendom:
"While the United States of America was swept and consumed by its great Civil War, the neighboring state of Mexico briefly became a Habsburg empire, ruled by the second son of Austrian archduke Franz Karl and his potent wife, Archduchess Sophia. Franz Karl was grandson of Emperor Francis, whom “God raised up,” in the words of the Austrian national anthem. Their second son was named for a Holy Roman Emperor, Maximilian. Maximilian was married to a clever, assertive Belgian princess named Charlotte."
Maximilian (Michael Bowen) von Hapsburg's idealistic world sees its dawn when he is asked by France to establish a monarchy in Mexico. His wife, Carlota (Faustina Bowen) encourages him to take the throne and free Mexico from both debt and tyranny. After support from France is withdrawn and the President of Mexico is on the rise, Max and Carlota must fight separate battles to save their adopted country
In honor of the day that Maximilian gave the ultimate sacrifice for his adopted country, Outlaws of Ravenhurst premieres on our YouTube channel.

Some of our scenes asked for battle. So to an open field with a bunch of costumed kids and our recording we set out. To get in the mood for the war, we all stood in a circle and practiced "Bang! Your dead!".
Then out into the field we went, and charged at each other: dying and killing as we went. Bunches of soldiers and bunches of fun!
After their defeat, Max and General Mejia are once again united with General Miramon. It is now that they realize how they were betrayed and who it was.
Bottom Left: Faustina Bowen gets James Phillips' bandage looking authentic.
Bottom Right: It was a typical December evening and Becket Bowen, although perfectly willing to help out, found himself very cold as he ran the volume camera!
