45 minutes

The fight scenes have turned out really good,
and a lot easier to accomplish than I thought they would


The film now stands at about 60% done, and a little over the 45 minute mark. Which, according to the Academy awards people, now qualifies it as a 'feature' film...

Shots like this, looking 45° down, seem to look the
best of all the 3D shots, for some reason...

However, at the moment it also qualifies as an incomplete film, with some meaty action shots left to do, and a couple smoochy dialog scenes wherein you learn the motivation and history of some of the important characters in the film...

Effects heavy shots are often easier to script and
storyboard, but then the time comes to develop the shot
and create the effects...


But what is done is looking great so far, and that's 45 mins of finished shots.. no reworks or screwups left, that's the finished film so far. Once main sequence production is done, then it's a simple matter of editing and tweaking a bit to get the film flowing right, I'll probably beef up the action shots a bit but for now I'm sticking to the storyboards as close as possible, and any re-cuts or inserts I can do in a second round of storyboards / shots. It's important to stay focused and stay committed to what is already in the script and on the storyboards, I have a couple of ideas, minor tweaks, and a 2-3 minute insert shot that will tie up some loose ends. But for now, I'm sticking to the storyboard.

Trés cool Dave! I'm really looking forward to seeing this one though I'm glad you're not rushing things.

How many hours do you usually end up working on the film per day? On average.

Never more than 8 or so... and not in one straight block either
