Jul 2009 09

Tonight we are updating the master visual effects tracking spreadsheet. Ian and Nathan Vegdahl have broken out the final battle into a wonderful choreography with details around each shot so that we need to update our original numbers. That means our numbers below are going to go up and our projected VFX completion dates are going to jump around for a while. We still hope to make exceptional headway this summer to bring the dates back into November of ’09. We’ll see what happens. Fingers crossed.

Note: We are pulling for Adventure Star Pictures entry in the 2009 48-Hour Film Festival. Jen Forbes and Barry Gregg are at the festival awards ceremony and screening tonight. Check out their amazing entry (above). I recommend clicking through to Vimeo so you can watch it in pristine high definition.

Now back to our report:

Status of Visual Effects (VFX) Shots:
Number remaining: 164
Number in progress: 6
Number completed: 429

Doom: Keying Artifacts (calculated by Ian)

Projected date for completion of all VFX:
1 March 2010 (based on projected time estimates of all tasks)
2 January 2010 (based on spreadsheet items completed per week)

This week’s recommendations:
Ian: “Suicide Medicine” by Rocky Votolato. Because I hear Nathan McCoy listens to our recommendations and I think he will like this.
Veggie: “Moon” a very contemplative science fiction film.
Nathan: “When the Tigers Broke Free” by Pink Floyd. Because Roger Waters just can’t get over it.
Phil: “Galacticon” by Heliocentric. Scott Burnett turned me on to these guys. They make awesome music and we are talking to them about using some of their tracks in Project London. Check ‘em out.
