Half way to go!

So, there’s been so much talk about the movie but what about the iPad application? Well, I haven’t forgotten about it. Wednesday June 23th was the end of the term and we had an presentation where the five teams demonstrated their progress so far. We are excited about the reactions we received from the audience [...]

Wickatronic Zann Moments…

This was the moment – the day of the “money shot”. Jon Berezen did an incredible and amazing job on the makeup for the character, Eric (played by Paul Toolan). We were all fascinated and in awe of the key reveal of Eric Zann. We also spent a ridiculous amount of time trying to get the music [...]

Your call is really Important for us…

So Term 3 came and went so fast that I cannot believe that is actually half of my year at VFS.  I still have more things and stories to share about the Project Space Squid, but today I’ll just write about the meeting we had.

We spent most of Thursday finalizing that list again and getting all of the odds and ends tied up. First, we started out by subjecting our sheet music to a rigorous “aging process” (endless soaking sessions in tea, coffee, and Coke), then we planned [...]

Pawn the Replay…

The days are winding down and so is the money …yet, it feels like there is still so much to do. Our 3D guys are having difficulty with finalizing and committing to the green screen flooring. They have to create a floor, which will be time consuming. We have since decided that throwing a rug down would eliminate the tedious [...]

Things for the Ritual
Old books predicting C'Thulhu coming back

After we had the “Ritual” (a.k.a Script) in our hands, we had to make a really detailed list of the things need it to call C’Thulhu.

The Ritual for the Calling
Presenting the RItual to the Team

As any ritual or process to summit either a force, a god or any other upper creature, you need a list of different ingredients and steps to follow. C’Thulhu was no different, but there was an exception, the ritual was in a language no one of my team knew how to pronounce.

Prop shopping on a low-budget, what better place to start than home?
