Movie Posters!

Here they all are. I sure hope you like them! I would love to print these out into postcards. Now remember, the guys don't have all their facial hair and Kat didn't spend a lot of time on her hair, so this is just the costumes. But I think the digital set looks pretty decent and the integration works despite my limited four light setup (and the occasional power failure!)

Let me know what you think!

Look at what we made!

Most of the actors for my film came over on Wednesday evening- It was a last minute thing and I almost forgot to tell Scott that it was on! Nevertheless, everyone put on their costumes and I have to say, wow. What great casting. The group got along well, and looked amazing. Kat fell right into the role of suffragette and her facial expressions were grand. Scott looked every bit the narcissistic playboy inventor and Mark was fantastically funny as the guy who carries things for Mulvey. And James hair made a surprise appearance. But he looked suitably nasty.

More pictures to come!

A Victorian Prosthetic

My friend Pam (who happens to be a dialect coach!) sent this my way, knowing how much I would like it! Ironically, this is very similar to what I had planned for Mulvey's arm in the third act, although mine was more brass and hardwood. But I like this a LOT.

I know you guys are probably sick of this view..

But things have been winding down at work, and while I still have to be there, I now have a little time on the side to make my digital set pieces look really nice. So, you'll notice the new crates. Doctor Grymm Laboratories has provided the gravity retardants, the aether manipulators and the blasting caps. The barrels contain gunpowder, cavorite, saltpeter and methyl nitrate. There's a travel poster on the wall, and I've done my best to simulate bright daylight streaming from above. What do you think?

More to come!

Some beautiful period accessories for my film!

While I have been drifting in the white noise of overtime, my friend Karen has been knitting up a storm of Victorian era awesomeness. This is called a misers purse- a design of brilliant innovation to keep pickpockets from stealing your coin. It opens in a very unique way, with sort of a crisscross pattern that you have to pull apart and then separate the yarn in order to get at your money.

Not only is it beautiful, it's practical too.  You can see some of the other stuff she's made for Adventures in Science over at her blog!

Thanks, Karen! It looks AMAZING!
