actors

At the moment I have three of the main parts spoken for with Karen Pistorius as the lead female called Emmanor. Campbell Cooley as Gotlieb the half man half fish computer Genius, and Grae Burton as Lord Froth. The three male leads however have yet to emerge. I have temporarily cast myself as Tom the […]

scooter

Hooray I have a scooter. Art collector James Wallace has agreed to lend me his scooter for the movie. I explained to him that I would be adding jet wings and painting it silver and will probably never work again. His one condition is that once I have finished it goes back to him and […]

gotlieb

Gotlieb is one of the main characters in the movie. The actor who we decided would be perfect for this role was Campbell Cooley. He is already american and is great with funny voices. So why haven’t we used him in the promos so far. Gotlieb is an alien creature with a head like a […]

Spaceships

Yup Dean is the man and he’s done it again. Look at this new spaceship he has made for the movie. Definitely got a train thing happening in this one. Love the paint job. I will find some way to use this one. Even if I didn’t need it. It always helps to have a […]

Crowdfunding Part 2

Well it looks like a few people could resist quite well. We never made the target. But amazingly we made about $7000 of almost money. yes that’s quite a bit of real support and I really thank all those people who pledged the bickies for the movie. Next time I think I will set a […]

New promo

So I had this great idea to do a new promo right in the middle of my major exhibition of the year and two major sculpture shows. But I felt I needed to somehow integrate some of the characters in with some dialogue. I love the other trailer but it doesn’t have any words. This […]

Josh

The other day Josh and I went out to Bethels to use the sand dunes as a backdrop for the robot part of the trailer. It also involved me playing Tom and remembering my lines.To my surprise I did and believe me this is a first. The footage looked awesome but further emphasized the importance […]

Music

Well I have almost finished my album and at least two songs are to be used in the movie. It’s not going to be a goonfest but I did write the lyrics with this in mind. All in good time though. It’s still a wee way off releasing. Andrew is working on the intro music […]

Crowdfunding

Well here we are crowdfunding again. This is not the first time. But this time it’s all or nothing. If I don’t make the target of $60,000 then I get nothing. A few months ago I went to a crowdfunding seminar and was introduced to a hosting company called pozible. They were based in Australia […]

Props

I love making guns and robots. I can’t help myself sometimes. They had the inorganic collection around the north shore and I was constantly stopping and picking through the most unsavoury items of discarded odds and sods. Now my backyard is even more filled with junk for this movie. I should be concentrating on my […]

The Escalator Part 2

Bastards. they didn’t go for the idea. The Escalator Fund turned us down. That was my last hope of proper funding and I thought it would be just perfect. The other major bummer is that this is apparently the last year they are doing this programme. They have had quite a few people start their […]

Trailer 2

Behind the scenes Just to give the escalator people a bit more of an idea of my style I decided to compile a behind the scenes look at the trailer which shows the screen tests of the actors. It’s funny and this is a good thing. yes ward fwoff.

Trailer 1

Well I just finished the trailer for the movie. Its not perfect and it is more like a music video but for some reason that’s the way I want it right now. I have too many limitations and this is the best solution. The last thing I need is to be shown up by bad […]

The Escalator

Well what a mission that was. I just applied for the escalator grant. Man that took some paper work but actually it felt pretty good to do it all. It gave me a bit more insight as to what’s involved on a big scale. The grant is for $250k. This is $150k more than the […]
