The Producer’s Report #54
Feb 2009 01

Status of Visual Effects (VFX) Shots:
Number remaining: 221
Number in progress: 11
Number completed: 303

Doom: “Bad Bad” (calculated by Ian)

Projected date for completion of all VFX:
7 July 2009 (based on projected time estimates of all tasks)
9 September 2009 (based on how much is actually completed each week)

This week’s music recommendations:
Nathan: “One Day Like This” by Elbow is the cure for what ails you. Seriously.
Phil: “The Great Gate of Kiev” by Mussorgsky from “Picture’s At An Exhibition”. I believe the orchestration by Herbert Von Karajan is perhaps the most epic and majestic piece of music ever, of all time.

Cheers,

Phil McCoy, Executive Producer

The Ian Report #439
Feb 2009 12

Some cool news;

I’ve recently obtained the ability to do a larger portion of work from my home, allowing me to work different hours. We’ll see how that goes! Last week I wrapped up the “crazy aerial chase over Seattle!”- a very fun sequence.

Dolf has made us a missile for the climactic ending battle! It’s the most steampunk missile you’ve ever laid eyes on, inspired heavily by propfans.

Nate T’s working on a shot where the Goose picks up Nebraska at a bustop. Mike B is working on a shot where the Paddywagon descends from the sky to drop of… a mysterious visitor! Tracy’s working on some more rad slides, and I’m animating and compositing other assorted shots!

Peace!

Doom: SpiralofDoom (calculated by Ian)

Projected date for completion of all VFX:
11 August 2009 (based on projected time estimates of all tasks)
6 November 2009 (based on how much is actually completed each week)

This week’s music recommendations:
Jen: “I Want to Break Free” by Queen.
Nathan: “World Destruction” by Time Zone – aka Afrika Bambaata and John Lydon – arguably the first rapcore single. This one goes all the way back to 1984. I just recently saw this on Zune and it took me back. I remember digging it on alternative AM radio back in the day. Also World Destruction seemed an appropriate song title to hook up with The Movie that will Eat Your Planet.
Phil: “River of Love” by T Bone Burnett. Another all time top ten song.
Ian: “The Doom Song” by Gir.

Cheers,

Concept work for Subject C is now in full swing. We’re all talking about ideas, and Nathan Taylor is whipping up some rad 3d concepts. What will it look like? I’m as intrigued as the best of them.

This week’s music recommendations:
Jen: “Rise” by Will Dailey.
Nathan: “The Hook” by Stephen Malkmus. Because it’s a song about pirates.
Phil: “Soon” by Yes. The most beautiful song of all time. But you have to listen to the entire “Gates of Delerium” to experience the full impact.
Ian: “The Last Saskatchewan Pirate” by The Arrogant Worms.

Let me just say-

The ending of this movie is going to be crazy awesome. Nate transformed a concept by Branson Anderson into a 3d mock-up, and just kinda took the idea and ran- it’s phenomenal. An insane space-age crustacean! With reality-bending supernatural powers! And trippy-hippy bioluminocity!

From Outter-Space™!

This is me being hyped.
