I have been at it now for several days on this model. Although I have built such meshes in the past I have been using techniques I should have long ago. So it’s been learning and building at the same time or it would have been done sooner.
None the less I am closing on this mesh and I have gone beyond what’s truly needed as it will never be seen that long on the screen or in such full lighting as this low res render.
It’s in a rather stiff pose as it’s suitable for rigging. Once rigged (which is the next step) I’ll be able to pose it and animate. In addition the face will have full movement of expression.
This being represents the taller beings that seem to be in charge based in my experience and that of others.
Issac has been doing after effects and more editing and the pilot is really shaping up. He is also(you’ll be happy with this Tommie) getting ready a partial cut to our talented composer.
We are shooting on the 21st. Of January. If you don’t have the new script with the new pages let Mary know. We have no special effects make up or creature work that day. It is all talking heads. The actors will need makeup. We are shooting the support group scene.
Thanks so much.
Tomas Martin and I have been battling back and forth over the theme and score for this production. Tomas has been diligent, never giving up trying to find the sound and feeling I want for this show. Over and over again he sent me pieces I rejected. He told me about Mark Snow and Chris Carter doing the same for the X-Files theme.
One day I was washing dishes and it came to me. I heard it in my mind as I often hear music but can’t write it down. I dropped the dishes, grabbed my iPhone and whistled the theme into the phone.I sent it to Tommie. He liked it and sent me a few days later a rough pass at the theme I whistled.
This time it was right. Tommie did an exceptional job of interpiting my theme and adding to it. This is in no way the final mix of this but I put it to Brad Hoplocks intro tease.
We are currently doing a 2.5 minute theatrical trailer. Isaac Blair is doing an “Awesome ” job!
Our production, But Something is There, is not “on spec” as much as a labor of love. The reason we have not asked for a backer is because when someone gives you a large sum of money they want to have creative control as well. This story is based on real experiences. Steve, Paul, Whitley and I don’t wish to make this production into someone else’s vision. It is funded by the few model and prop jobs we get and some of our social security money. We are going to sell it after it is finished to keep our vision. All work on the production right now is volunteer and, when it sells, we will be able to compensate all involved for their hard work and love.
Our current status is:” in production”. However it is difficult to sync up with the rest of the crew, on weekends where we can all be present for a shoot. At this point in time it would appear that August 13th would be the next time if we can all sync up.
What I’m doing today is going through the script and breaking down in a logical manner a time line of dates and scenes we can do. Then share it with the crew and see if it can work and adjust accordingly.
Very soon I’ll be starting the next script. This one will be a wild ride through the unknown as never before in this subject matter. I have so much material to sort through but I have been thinking about it constantly and feel prepared to write it.
No matter what your feelings or experience with this most controversial subject matter are, remember, “But Something is There”.
