posted some more screen grabs...

mark stirton said...

I'll have a look this very moment.

allen said...

Well goody, goody...looking forward to comments...we are blazing through the script and it makes Darkness Aftermath look like...well...hey...it was our first try...this is doing a lot better...and we have GUNS!

allen said...

BTW, congrats on all of the success with ODR! It is so cool to see the little guy make something better than Hollywood. Honestly, I have not been as entertained with mainstream films (with Ice Age 3 being the exception, maybe) as I was with ODR. My 11 year old is begging to watch it...

mark stirton said...

Mmm, 11 is a bit young isn't it. We could always make a child friendly version, which would be about 10 minutes long. One of these days I'll make a nicer film.

allen said...

Yeah...he'll have to wait a little while. You really think a kid friendly version would be that long? 10 minutes? Maybe with credits...

And for the record, I wasn't comparing ODR to IA3. But Simon Pegg stole the show! Makes me wonder how much he add-libbed...

Hi Allen, I think most of the audio for things like Ice Age is done well in advance of the animation. There possibly is scope for some ad-libbing from the talent.

Not as much as Tom Baker while on dr who though.

allen said...

Didn't know that about Baker. I was wondering about Pegg because I saw a documentary where Robin Williams was looping audio and he did each line about ten different ways.

On a different note, I am contemplating leaving Beneath Shadows as director. With my work status and some family issues, it's just too much...can't dedicate myself to it 100% anymore.

Michael Grant Clark said...

I'm sorry to hear that Allen, you really enjoy film making. Perhaps you could act in advisory position for a while.

You know you'll miss it if you leave it totally.

What are you, some sorta quitter? Never retreat, never surrender.
