Adventures

Flashback to “Fear” Friday

Flashback Friday!

So a little ways back I posted episode 1 of the web-series Immortal Alexander and I have been creating, Haunting Light and today I figured, let’s kick back together, relax, and go on a bit of an adventure. And afterwards I’ll let you in on a little behind the scenes action.

Be careful where you step along the way *maniacal laugh*

Episode 2 – Fear

Behind the scenes fun facts:

Guess which actress was very very pregnant during our shoot.

Screen Shot 2016-01-07 at 11.17.01 PMWe filmed the scenes with Shelly in The Dark Place a full year after we filmed the main bulk of the episode. And when we filmed those pick-ups we had to work around the fact that our actress, Bianca Grande, was about 8 months pregnant.

Yep. She rocked it.

 

The Menacing Branch Arm

That was a very cleverly built hand made out of a block of wood, PVC piping, nylon cording, and a climbing ring. Oh and this really cool stuff called balsa foam that “carves like foam by paints like wood.”

And the woman who figured it out?merdman

M Erdman, who is currently rocking out in Arizona, well on her way to becoming a full-time production designer. You should check out her animation projects when you have a minute btw, it’s super trippy.

Here’s the rendering I gave M:

And here’s some photos from when she was creating it:

M did do a bunch of BTS video for us, but alas! I still need to edit that beast together. Although I should probably do that this year, since its been, like… 3 years since we filmed…

Fun Fact:

Our Phantom Child, played by Aaron Snyder, was so much fun to work with on set! But I did have to give him direction by using a lint roller as a puppet so he could keep his serious face on during filming. 🙂

And one last Tidbit to balance out your Friday:

Our familiar spirit dog, played by Colt, was so thrilled to have a full weekend of playing in the woods with us! But was a little bummed out when people wouldn’t play fetch with him.

This had everything to do with the fact that the “sticks” he brought us were literally full trees.

Happy Friday everyone!!
