We were supposed to have a meeting this evening for key crew, but it turned out that no-one could make it. D’oh. I advertised for a props maker and a costumes maker last week, and some solid CVs have come in. The cogs are beginning to grind into motion. So much of the work is already done. The main thing now is to start getting the props and costumes made and to recast the characters who have moved on since last year.
David Abbott, who wore many a hat (and toupee) on the crew of The Beacon, sent through a CG animation last night which will appear in Soul Searcher as a computer game which Joe’s best friend Gary is playing in an early scene. It’s fantastic, and it reminded me of one of the great things about doing a big project like this – getting the right people in to do certain jobs, then sitting back while their excellent work flows in. Much more fun that doing everything yourself, a la The Beacon.
