Just A Film?

Sep
11

I've been having a somewhat ongoing conversation the last few days with a couple of friends at work....

Right now I'm knee deep in Genesis development. The idea has always been to try and do more than "simply make a film". At my end of the budgetary scale, there's an awful lot films that seem to be made just because, well, the guys and gals involved want to make a film. I can respect that. I want to make a film. That's one of the driving forces.

Scrap it all, we're starting again!

Aug
27

I've been developing Genesis for a long time. By "developing", I tend to mean lots of thinking about the story, which in turn requires a huge amount of introspection. I've a lot of notes, several false starts of scripts, and still really no idea of what the story is actually about. Lots of character stuff, but no real structure. A beginning, an end, but not so much in between. When I've started coming up with the driving force to get into the story, the "main plot" before it develops in to the character piece, I've been adding more complexity but, again, little structure.

Update time. More of an effort make I must.

One Shot is up! A single shot short to test the camera we're going to be using on Genesis. Check it out in the films section. Hope you enjoy it.

Time flies when you're busy....

Yes yes I know. Late again

Seriously though, how did this happen? 4 months. Nearer 5. I'm going to make more of an effort. Honest. Not like I could make less of one.

So what have I been up to?

Space, The Final Frontier

Sep
25

I may not of updated for a month, but that does not mean I have not been busy. Quite the opposite in fact.

Right now, I'm working on a few things and trying to decide what to do next.

The end goal is, of course, Genesis. Having struggled with the script for over a year, I've finally passed it over to a proper writer :) I'll discuss more when we have the first draft.

Well that could of gone better

Remember my last blog? All sounded like it was going so well.


That was until I realised the old NLE had decided to put a black frame around my uncompressed render. Why? After lots of messing around, it appears to have been a bug. It kept messing up pixel size, and even though I'd manually set it as 1.0, it still wouldn't work until (as I eventually fluked upon) you completely change export types, then change back. It then defaults to 1.0 and, you know, actually works.

Could be a late night

Jul

As Phil has said, we shot Deathilating Machine (aka In The Flesh) a long time ago, yet for one reason or another it's never been completed. We got close last year, but Phil wanted to work on the visual effects some more, and I was never really happy with the edit. Then we completed ZombieZ, then came the Mirrors music video, and then came a much needed rest.


And now we're here.
