Calling C’Thulhu…not an easy task!
Without the green screen...first attempt for background

It’s been 2 months now since we made the Call and shoot our film.  I thought that once the project reached the Post Production stage everything will be easier… oh boy, I was so wrong!
Apparently, leading with Old Ancient Ones can be really tricky….as also working with a not well lighted green screen. The problem was that our green screen [...]

Why should I call C’Thulhu?

Truth is why should I? He didn’t know who I was and to be honest with you,  I didn’t know too much about him either…

After been writing for a while about the Project “Space Squid” and “The Call of C’Thulhu”; which is the interactive film I’m working on, based on the work of H.P Lovecraft, I realized that actually I [...]

Even in the Quietest Moments …

Well, it has been 2 weeks since “The Music of Eric Zann” was wrapped, and all I keep thinking is, I definitely want to do this again.
Classes have resumed, assignments are due, overdue, and we have meetings. Tons of meetings. So far, we have met with the creative digital design guys numerous times and have come [...]

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.
It was 4.30 p.m, and our Head of Department Jessica (fearless and assertive  leader I [...]
