Where to start?


Been thinking about where's the best place to start with my blog about VFX stuff and for some reason have decided Deathilating Machine is the best place to start, the film was shot some time ago and for one reason or another (mainly other projects coming up in between) it still needs finishing on both the 'film making/ editing' side and in terms of the visual effects. Though we did screen a very early edit with very rough visual effects, it is still not quite complete in terms of how Matt and I visualise the final product.

Welcome to the 'geeks r us' technical blog!


So, Matt has asked me to write a blog about all things CG relating to Chainsaw Films' current, past and future projects, for anyone that may be at all interested in techy nerdy stuff.... 

So here's a quick heads up on what we have been up to, more detail to follow in the  fullness of time...

Zombiez - completed post production on promo/trailer for this feature film in July 2010

A little bit of progress?


So I'm laying in bed contemplating the last few days.

Events kicked of quietly, a quick email to a few regular crew members asking their permission to include a bio on the Crew page - they would be involved in Genesis after all. Quickly found myself on Facebook having a chat with Piotr, my regular sound engineer.

New Website Incoming


Due to database corruption, the website had to be taken down. Unfortunately, we lost all user data (the backups were too out of date) so no-one could sign on (including me!), even after setting a new password directly through SQL. Therefore I'm afraid you'll need to rejoin.

No amount of SQL magic could get the old site ticking, so it was time to start again. With a change in focus this last year, it made sense to move away from Be A Zombie and onto our new found maturity!
