And that's why we're still working on it. Mainly because I'm perfecting the score, doing some minor re-shoots, and perfecting the FX. But also because "really good" isn't good enough for me.
I'm aiming for amazing. If I aim high, then even if I miss, at least we'll land somewhere above "really good."
So one of the things I haven't been able to do is get alot of the final fight scenes to be really big. I needed alot of actors to play Grimm Soldiers in the final battle scenes. But I've been unsuccessful in coordinating everyone's schedules to get the amount of people I need.
So since I can't get an army of actors in, why not make it an army of Robots. And all I'd need to do is build just one and multiply it in post.
|I started with left over coffee containers, empty juice bottles, and some mini pads I bought for cheap at Goodwill.|
|Yes, that's a Planters Peanuts Bottle.|
|Put it all together with hot glue and cheap wood screws. Added a few details from plastic lids and caps.|
|Did a first coat of black spray paint.|
|Then a coat of metallic silver. Letting it dry for 24 hours between coats helps keep it from chipping.|
|A final coat of off white on the body. It looks a bit orange thanks to the sun going down.|
|A final coat of black for the chest plate and shoulders.|
|After I'm done in post we'll have an army of flying robots.|
This only cost about $7.
Before you know it this movie will be completely finished.
