A photo taken during April 1st photo shoot, this is George Tutie playing Midael, a Chimaera who has wings that shoot out daggers (concept developed from several live action Anime styled films). This is the film I've been in pre-production since June 2005, principal photography is July 1-14 (2 units shooting simultaneously)
Many of local talents are involved plus friends from Boston, MN, Columbus, LA, etc. This is the project I was talking about that will be shooting in HD.
Teaser should be readied by begining of May. Enjoy

Those are very awesome pics. Why do you tease us so? I want to see footage! :)
04-10-2006, 08:56 AM
Coot :) that's what tease is about :)
for those tech-savvy, this is shot with 3 Canon XL-1 (2 XL-1 and 1 XL-1s), good lighting, great DP, 2 units simultaneously on 2 different scene, and a fun location to work at. Not to mention great cast that helped made this work, of course the wonderful crew :)
Teaser video will be readied by end of April, however, we might tease you more later with some 'footages' :)

I'd be interested in finding out what settings your DP uses for the XL1's and if there's anything they are doing special for lighting. Frame grabs look great.
04-10-2006, 11:35 AM
Just basic settings, 0 gain, manual mod.
Lighting wise, we use gells, lights bouncing with around them, each scene got like 2 light sources, then fog. ;)

04-10-2006, 01:23 PM
Damn, man. Looks impressive!

I have never seen my husband (the tall guy with the gun) look so HOTT!! Sexy and bad to the bone. :) This was so much fun to shoot. Now our cast/crew can't wait to get to principle photography.

"Why wasn't I told about this? Who's in charge here?!" :D ahh batman quotes

Why haven't any of the 387 photos made it my way yet? Chandler got some, but not me. ;);)

Christine, the photos are from BTS, it's not going to be good to tease with that ;)
All, look at job's pic, now with some 'cg' into it :)

Looks like you have an interlace problem there...
Is that an image you did the VFX on, or was it the entire clip?
What app did you use?
04-14-2006, 10:29 AM
Coot, oops, it was a screen grab that I forgot to de-interlace it with photoshop, now it's done, thanks for pointing that out. It's the entire clip that added the fx, and Tom Luhtala did that, as a first draft, he's adding some blueish color to it.
04-14-2006, 10:47 AM
I can't wait to see what else comes of it... What is he using for his VFX program? AE? Combustion? DF5?
04-14-2006, 10:54 AM
I think he uses 3ds max, not sure, Ill ask him to post hre. ;)
