THROWBACK THURSDAY: “V1Z1” Teaser Trailer (2010)

Going back 9 years to when I got my first video DSLR. I shot this silly fake trailer with a bunch of friends. Lots of After Effects, and lots of fun! Shot on the Canon 550D / t2i, which in my opinion is the camera that democratized filmmaking. It was the first camera that anyoneContinue reading “THROWBACK THURSDAY: “V1Z1” Teaser Trailer (2010)”

Progress. More than one minute into the film.

It has been a while since I have last posted. Lots has been done since then. Late 2012 the newspaper for my region came out and did a story on the film, which was an interesting experience. Still, if there is one thing I have learnt from it, it’s: never trust the media. I hadContinue reading “Progress. More than one minute into the film.”

First shot is in the can! (and a sneak peak)

I finished my first shot for “Disappear” on Thursday night at around 11pm. After being in pre-production on and off for around 12 months, this is a major milestone. I can finally start to see my vision take on a life of its own. ——————————————————————————————————- Stay tuned for some frames pulled right out of theContinue reading “First shot is in the can!

The apartment set is close to finished!

So I have finally finished up on “The Great Gatsby” and have been back in the studio for a few weeks now. The set is nearing completion and I should think it is not unrealistic to start shooting in June as scheduled, unless the feature film I am booked on decides they want me forContinue reading “The apartment set is close to finished!”

1000 1:6 scale bricks and a wardrobe

Another month has flown by. I’ve been really busy with my theater role in the production of “The Great Gatsby”. The show starts in just over two weeks, so will only be getting busier from here on in. In the studio; I’ve finished the neighboring brick wall. I did a base coat of ceiling paint and then blackContinue reading “1000 1:6 scale bricks and a wardrobe”

Furniture, hands and a tiny key.

Wow how time flies huh? Another month already. With this in mind I’ll quote Bruce Lee; “If you love life, don’t waste time, for time is what life is made up of.” Been a good month, lots of progress. I have all of the furniture finished apart from the wardrobe, which is a hero prop (I’m starting on thatContinue reading “Furniture, hands and a tiny key.”

Character completed, hands, furniture started.

So, it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’m gonna make it a “first week of every month” thing from now on, unless it’s just a few quick photos. I’ve fabricated some new sculpting tools out of brass, after watching a tutorial excerpt by Marc Spess (very talented sculpter), and sculpted some apoxie sculpt hair onto theContinue reading “Character completed, hands, furniture started.”

Set is built, painted and ready to be dressed. Progress!!!

So it’s been about 3 weeks since I last posted and I have gotten a fair bit done. That big pile of timber…. Turned into over 100 small bits of timber, which I’ve spent some time assembling into a section removable stage. The set sits on top of a timber stage I built (I wentContinue reading “Set is built, painted and ready to be dressed. Progress!!!”

Slowly getting a head. Also, the start of a rabbit and a pile of timber.

Been a very productive week. I really love being in the new studio. I’ve even found time to do some music and paint a bit, in between apoxie setting times. So this week I have gotten the head sculpt completed and baked (sculpey) and attached it to a neck made out of latex. Next upContinue reading “Slowly getting a head. Also, the start of a rabbit and a pile of timber.”
