Re: The Last Battleground

Thanks ZOMBIE!!!

If there's one thing ppl have to complain about is my effects, but with the zombie movie we're making next, I'm going to change all that...

here's some first test pics I did tonight of make-up on my hand...keep in mind...this is the first latex effect I've EVER done!

Re: The Last Battleground

nice, its got that nice looking goug - some depth

i dont think you need to have picture perfect effects - as long as you can work with what you've got

it certainly helps if you have top notch realistic effects - because then you can spend more time staring at the mess - without having to be overly imaginative with the camera work or show just a quick frame of gore

i really wanna see one of your pieces - as you said, they are far from technical masterpieces, but the ideas and style seem to be very interesting and enjoyable. Once you polish those technical aspects - i rekons youd be punchin out some classic originals

Re: The Last Battleground

i rekons youd be punchin out some classic originals

Depending on who you ask...I've already punched out some classic originals tongue

Okay, going on right now- I've got about half an hour of The Complex left to edit...then we'll have a cool little trailer to show off what the hell is going on.

When I'm done with that...I'll start working on The New Girls DVD for release, that shouldn't take too long.

While those two things are going on I'm busy working on special f.x for the zombie flick...which is now OFFICIALLY titled:

HIGHWAY 91

Here's some more make-up tests...please keep in mind NONE OF THESE ARE DONE. They're all just concept stuff, I want lots of rotted zombies lumbering around, we're going with grayish skin for most of them and I'm not planning on having a lot of them with just plain old grey make-up, 75% are going to have bones, teeth, nose, eyeballs etc etc hanging out or poking out skin. So here's a few concept things I've done-

"Highway 91" begins filming on the 10th of next month!

Re: The Last Battleground

HAHA awesomes - cant wait

Re: The Last Battleground

Okay here we go...this is pretty much 3 different zombie make-up jobs.

This is a simple one-

Re: The Last Battleground

i rekons the eyes make a huge difference in zomb flicks

it bothers me when the eyes look full of life - they need to be dead

https://www.clearlycontacts.com.au/imageresources/product/special-effects-lenses/Ouch_face-L.jpg

fkn love the contacts they use in REC2 - heaps wide Sclera lenses - red and black - looks demented!

saw another really good one in a movie recently - cannot rmember what though !?

maybe la horde? the pupils were different sizes - and its was like yellow n green - i feel well braindead - i only watched it last week - AHHH! it was the crazies! one of the red necks

if you can use CG - do that f'sure - prolly heaps cheaper if you got someone

Re: The Last Battleground

After kind of having a full on zombie movie marathon, I realized how much I loved all the old school Romero zombie flicks and I kind of noticed something. His zombies really had personality, like the zombie in Dawn that grabs the gun (and switches up later). I think there's something to be said for zombies that have SOMETHING going on behind their eyes. Some kind of weird thought process so I'm going with eyes that kind of look around and whatnot. I know not everyone will dig that, but it just feels right for what I'm doing.

Allright, first day of filming! Makeup took about an hour and a half for everyone! Shooting went pretty damn good considering it was the first day. The sky was nice and dark. Really good atmosphere!

Re: The Last Battleground

nice one homie

you can still haz the eyes looking around n shit with contacts - cgi would be limiting

you got these awesome face deformaties - but the eyes are extremely normal

it seriously bothers me - ill pay for a set of contacts - IF - you use them

Re: The Last Battleground

where the fuck can i find copies to watch SONNY!

???

Re: The Last Battleground

it seriously bothers me - ill pay for a set of contacts - IF - you use them

Hey thanks for the offer man! But you'd have to buy about 30 sets of contacts, since we've got a huge scene planned with a really big horde of zombies. But as the movie comes together more and more I just think it's very important to still have that humanity in their eyes. I want people to feel sad for these zombies at part, like they're tortured souls.

where the fuck can i find copies to watch SONNY!

Aw Highway 91 won't be done for a few more months, so have patience, I'll have a trailer soon here. You can find all my other movies on Amazon though, some for download for like 2 bucks (my books on their too) and I've got The New Girls finally coming out in a few weeks, so keep an eye out for that! In the meantime though I'll keep on putting up pics and letting folks know how things are going!

Matter of fact...we're filming tomorrow, so I'll have some pretty cool pics up soon!

Re: The Last Battleground

awesome awesome works

i suppose i understand your vision for the eyes - leaves a sense of humanity - where as fuckt up eyes are more demonic and non human

i still prefer the non human demonic styles though tongue

ill have to make a purchase at amazon

Re: The Last Battleground

awesome - just ordered = The Aborted, Cold Blooded & The Last Battle Ground... ill see what else i can find

also - if you ever need original pieces of creep ambience and soundscapes or complete tracks - id do a few for freee - just let me know what is required - if you dont already have some pimpin sound man

Re: The Last Battleground

Hey cool man, let me know what you think!

I might have to hit you up on that! I haven't begun editing yet so I'm not sure what kinda music I'm going for with this one yet!

Re: The Last Battleground

BeyondNerds.com just put up a review for The Last Battleground! They give it an 8.5...she liked it a lot. For those that don't like reading (you know who you are) they even put up an audio version!

Re: The Last Battleground

The New Girls DVD is ALMOST done, just have to record my intros for the deleted scenes. It'll be selling for the low price of 12.99, for that you get commentary from me, Liz Dockter, Sam Ova, Cody Tergesen, and Justin Kavlie, you get a 10 minute bloopers reel, 10 minutes of deleted scenes and tons of trailers from this and other flicks.

I'll let you folks have an exact release date when I get one!

In case you need to be reminded of how badass the movie is...here's that trailer again [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZhFprn_sZY[/youtube]

Re: The Last Battleground

Just saw 3 of your trailers and I must say their pretty damn cool. I liked the New Girls best, but all were interesting to watch. Keep up the good work and hope you fulfill your dreams. Your doing what probably 9-10 of us here only dream of doing, which is making horror movies. Thanks, Sonny!
