Hey people of the interwebs. I know it's been a while since my last post, but I've been pretty busy working on things ranging from script rewrites, to shooting, to editing, and lighting... and the list goes on and on. I'm going to try my best to catch up and post about all the exciting things that have been going on. For those who were following my post about using an FiiO headphone amp to boost mic volume while disabling the ACG on your camera, I have finally shot all of the footage I need for the blog, and I'll be putting that together shortly. I appreciate your patients.
About a month ago, Andrew Bellware gave me a part in his upcoming feature film, currently title "Android Insurrection" Before I go into details about the part, I should tell you about Mr. Bellware. He created a small indy production company called Pandora Machine. Specializing in scifi genre type movies, Pandora Machine is a one stop production house which cranks out between 2 and 3 movies a year, and SELLS THEM!!!! The movies are a blast to make, and Drew as taught me countless things about making movies, which is why I never hesitate to lend a hand. This brings me to the part I played in the movie.
While going through the script to work out some kinks, I found a character; Mooney, who had no lines, dies within the first few pages, and had a Big Friggin Gun. I figured I could get my shots done in one day, leaving plenty of time to help out on set, and I could easily make a kick ass prop gun for my character. It turns out that the only day of production I was able to make it for was the one I was acting in, and that BFG which I thought was going to be cheap and easy to make... ended up being a handful. However those are tales best left for another day. Here are some pictures from the last day of principle photography on the Pandora Machine film, Android Insurrection.
