We couldn’t get anyone to make the weapons rack, so my Dad and I spent Wednesday afternoon making one out of a block of foam and a large cardboard box. Aside from almost dying from inhalation of toxic foam fumes, it went pretty well and will do the job nicely once it’s sprayed black. As an in-joke I’m including the gun from the original short on the rack.
Yesterday I went to London, spending the time on the train redoing some storyboards. Edd and I went to Southbank University’s Film Special Effects Department again, showed the students the trailer, and talked to some of them about making puppets and miniatures. They were very enthusiastic.
Tonight is our first day of Principle Photography: Part II (“Getting BACK<< was only the beginning..."). We're out at the Romney Hut in Rotherwas again, in the dead of night. Edd isn't coming, due to paying work, which is going to put some strain on me. I'm glad it's only three days in a row.
