Introducing the Project London logo
Feb 2008 23

Our logo contest was recently completed on worth1000.com and we are pretty darn pleased to show you the winning design created by Mark Damiano.

Mark created an interesting symbol that appears here in place of the “O” in the word project. We plan to use the symbol in some cases as a stand alone icon. Mark suggested that, “the symbol can be looked at as people under a microscope or as scientists on either side experimenting on the head of a subject; the circle representing a psychic aura. It can also symbolize the face of the subject with sensors attached to it, the 3rd eye representing a psychic element. Orrr…. just a cool intimidating secret government symbol.” We felt that Mark really connected with what we are trying to do and that the symbol could have originated with the first Project London experiments that began with Subject A on the Nalaradian home world.

Thank you Mark!

How old are you and why?
My age range for tax purposes is 38 – 42. That’s why.

What got you started in film work?
I wanted to meet girls. Actually that’s not true I felt a strong desire to express myself artistically in a medium that would capture a moment in time which would in turn, demonstrate an idea, mood and feeling to anyone experiencing that creative process in that instance… and I wanted to meet girls.

Progress Report!
Feb 2008 29

Hello all,
I read the other day that Thomas Edison invented the word “hello,” because it carries better on a telephone. I have no idea if it’s true or not.

Things have been going QUITE well with Project London. The stage two edit is just about done (I suppose you could call it a second rough-edit, since my voice is still visible in one or two places yelling, “Cut!” or “and… STAB! Retract! Fall! Die!”), and looking better and better. There have been a few problems, but nothing that doesn’t end up being for the best in the end.

One of my favorite things about problems is that they force us to think outside the box. When everything is going fine it’s easy to get into a groove and just go with it, but when things start going wrong, well! THAT’S when the cool stuff happens. That’s when the creativity and thinking comes out, and I’d say 9 times out of 10 we’ll end up with something better than if everything had worked in the first place. It’s a great way to break you out of your ‘business as usual’ mindset and force you to give the audience something it doesn’t expect.

I’m working on the massive scene that takes place at “Benny’s Fuel and Repair.” It’s our only wholly green screen scene and it exists (among other reasons) to really introduce us to the world in which the characters live. It’s a fairly short scene, but a lot happens. Long story short; two folks visit a “Spaceship Repair Shop” type thing, and while they’re there a crazy battle ensues. The crazy battle is what I’m working on now; and it’s easily the most complicated bit of CG (Computer Graphics) I’ve ever had the privilege to work on in my life (with some AMAZING help from Nathan Taylor, who’s doing some amazing CG work… take a look at the red exo-suit above).

The more I work on this movie the more excited I get. It’s gonna be a fun, fast-paced, sci-fi/comedy/drama with a cool story, epic visuals, and totally glorious music. There’s a big difference between a totally hyped Ian and a ‘business-as-usual’ Ian. The ‘business-as-usual’ Ian will work maybe 6 hours a day. The ‘Totally Hyped Ian’ will work 11 or so. The past few days I’ve been working 16.

Well worth the admission price. Or ninja’ing your way into the theater to see (although the grill of the ductwork vent could block some of the epic visuals).

So yup! Just logging in to let you guys who care know; this movie is turning out better than I could have ever dreamed, and if nothing else, will be totally flippin’ awesome.
