Somebody Doesn’t Like Us

 

Cock-Knockers Struck By Lightning!
Cock-Knockers Struck By Lightning!

 

Since Ed Video wasn’t hosting a 48 hour film challenge this year, some friends and I decided do a film challenge by ourselves.

24 hours into the project, a lightning strike took out the power to my neighborhood!  We waited around for a while, but we had no idea when the power would come back on.  So we packed it in and scheduled the completion of the challenge for two weeks later. 

Someone obviously doesn’t want you to see this work of genius , but we will prevail and post it next month.  We shall overcome!

We used this site for a random line of dialogue:

And we used this page to generate a random prop and situation:

Keychain of Events on TV again

I’ve been promising to post our award winning film “A Key Chain of Events” for some time. I forgot that we had a deal with Movieola to not distribute it on the web for a year.
As the first anniversary approaches it looks like Movieola is trying to get their money’s worth out of it.  It’s being broadcasted three times this month. …Wait a minute. We didn’t get any money from them.  I guess it’s because they just like it so much.
– SOON, for realz, it will be posted.

Test Shots on ICFPE

The plan was to start shooting “It Came From Planet Earth” in January.  Well, we shot some tests this month, so I guess we’re on schedule.  The image to the left is a composite of a still image of clouds, the graveyard  miniature and a life sized Rob shot on green screen.  We’ve also been doing tests using 3D graphics to extend the miniature sets.  These have been so successful, we’re now thinking of expanding the use of 3D in the project.


– You can see an example of  the set extention tests in the Production Report.

Rebuilding Ricky - E3 completes shooting

Rebuilding Ricky 3 is now done shooting!  There’s still a good deal of post production to go, but a significant milestone has been reached….  The one I was aiming for 6 months ago.

Still don’t know the details of our deal with Movieola, so I am unable to post our award winning short, “A Keychain of Events.”  As soon as we know what’s going on, you’ll know.
