Nothing. What's news with you?

HAHAHA!

Yeha.

'aight! So this is the news thread!

321, let's jam.

We filmed today! After a fierce 24 hours of planning, it turned out really well! We got Janssen's camera (I love it, BTW)

We filmed a scene with Chase and some other people.

Probably the coolest part was when a truck driven by a guy we knew drove by, so we filmed people jumping into it.

And... Anything in slow motion is awesome.

That's all the news for today.

WELL! We filmed the "Meeting the Principal" scene. One of the big scenes of the first episode.

It turned out good. It was one of those days when we only had the facilities for an hour and a half, so it was rushed, but it turned out awesome.

Here's a few pics. THe first shows the equipment (except the lights. We were actually able to use a highly decent light kit for this scene, but it's casting lights through the blinds), the second kinda shows the setup of the room.

I always look like I have really long hair in these pictures, but it's cause I'm looking down.

Heh. It's true!

Well! We're gonna be getting our props in from Mike, a guy who makes props, within the next week.

He made us a custom hovering robot, which will be a primary/secondary character (So said because, while he hangs out with all of the main characters, he really doesn't play a PIVOTAL role in the story.) We sent Mike our sketches, and he make the robot. We still have no idea what it looks like.

He's also making us an oversized revolver, similiar to the one viewable Here!

Click Here! to view the rest of Mike's amazing prop-making site. He's an awesome guy.

We'll post pics of the new props when they arrive.

Meanwhile, we are amassing huge amounts of props for the duke 2.5 set. The back of Steve's truck is literally packed to the bring. We could possibly fit in a VCR, but that's about it. And I have a couple cupboards overflowing with awesome junk, too.

I'm excited, honestly. Highly excited. We just have to FINALLY GET PERMISSION FROM JAN TO BUILD THE SET IN HIS BASEMENT! Yeaho! (awesome guy, Jan. You should all meet him) Which is taking much longer than expected. To get permission to build the set, not to meet him. Most of you probably wont. Because you live far away.

It's true!

Very cool stuff.

I'm curious. What type of lighting do you guys use? Stuff you just kinda collected together over the years or something more elaborate.

This is Janssen's camera. ANd I love it. And him.

Like, seriously. Best camera ever.

He has track every day after school. Whaugh!

As far as lighting goes, yeah, there's a lot of lights which we've obtained just through light obtaintion, but for a few shoots we've been able to use the actual "Light kit", owned by filmaking friend Mark (the guy in the center of the picture on the right).

It's an awesome, actual light kit. With 3 lights, and 3 stands, with reflectors and gells and all that stuff.

it's a blast. Smiley

Take it easy, what?!

Ian, did you do something amazing to that or is blender just extremely good at rendering glass? That's amazingly realistic. Wow!

Heh. Most programs with glass are that good, they just have nothing realistic to reflect (IMO). I just used my regular rendering options, with a slightly transparent, highly reflective texture on it.
