    COSTUME UPDATE

    Now that I'm not quite so busy this week (funerals, moving and a wedding will do that), I'm just about to start on the costumes. I'm hoping to make everything just a bit too big, because it is a LOT easier to make clothes smaller than enlarge them.

    Justin, if you could just send me a message to remind me what all the pieces are that I have to make, that would help a lot. then I can check them off when I'm finished. I'll do Deb's last, since she won't be around for the first weekend.

    I would love to help out, but have a move and a reunion that weekend. Thank you for the invite! I'll see if any other North Ridge members can make it.

    Good luck with the film and have fun. I would be interested in seeing a copy of the film when you are done.

    Thanks!! I sure hope so :)

    I can't do this alone, and I have been lucky enough to find many many talented people :) Including one who can make prop binoculars from pill bottles!

    All I really need now is a real talent team of CG artists ;)

    Wow! Everything is looking awesome! I actually have a really neat lamp that we can use, and it's even already in London at my and Wolf's new place. I'm hunting to see what else I can find, but I'm going to head to bed now to catch about 4 hours of zzz's. Just FYI in case anyone checks it, the Toronto/Scarborough crew will be arriving hopefully before 9, due to the uncooperative TTC.

    Wow, first to reply since shooting began! Well, no wonder, the weekend has been hectic.

    I'd like to thank all the members, cast and crew from London, Toronto, and all over who came out to this. It was an honour to be a part of this production. It was great to see the fabulous costumers, costumes, directors, actors, and crew members which made this possible, and seeing all of you again, or meeting you for the first time. I'm sure we're all looking forward to the next shoot date!

    Heath, you REALLY became the role and tool Polol into a direction that was more than perfect. You looked the part and did great!
    Having your R2 unit here was amazing and well what can I say, he was amazing (Even though he was a slowpoke.) ;)
    Thanks for helping set up and bring down and giveing your fair shar of help, including sanding the blades and fixing the lightsabers!...Not to mention helping us actually GET them :)

    Alex, thanks you for all your help! As everyone would agree your R2 is top notch and having TWO R2's was just so amazing :) Your props were sooooo coool! :) The binoculars were amazing and above any expectation I had! The pouches were awesome as well!
    Your help with teh blades and runiing with Heath to the hardware store was greatly appreciated :) THANKS!

    Cutaways?

    Cutaways = additional shots that may not be relevant to the story or action but allow for seemless editing. Rookie mistake is to not get cutaways...makes it difficult to edit. Also get different angles...really helps, sometimes running the scene so different shots over lap helps...

    sorry you have got me in movie mode now...lol

    *sigh* 14 1/2 hours of sewing on Saturday alone (only counting from the time I woke up) and I don't get in the Saturday picture :( :( :_|

    I loved watching everything on Sunday, I had a really good time. The costumes turned out very well, even if I was ready to throw my machine out the window at one point!

    It was great being able to see everyone again, and to meet so many great people. All I've been able to talk about today is the fanfilm, driving some of my co-workers crazy and amusing others. I can't wait to see the finished film, and hopefully I'll be able to see most of you at the next shoot!

    Oh, and Justin? when can I pick up my VCR? I want to see this episode of E Now I have on tape that apparently stars some people I know.....

    Other Angles? Check.

    Few non action shots that may help. Jymm if you're hand is still able to help with editting, even just these scenes filmed that would help alot! Email me or something :)
    I think we did alright for shots.

    We need to get a complete cast and crew photo, maybe at the Primere :)

    (Janet IM me about the VCR :) )

    EDIT:

    John (The Wookie) Just told me Richard, my teacher who was watching us film said this: "Security was impressed and they said there would be no problem if you wanted to shoot more"

    :)

    Actually that is really good news for you because though I haven't seen the footage yet I know that most productions often require people to return for small reshoots. Its a pain but if you want it to work its a requirement.

    What an incredible weekend!

    Matt and I are back in the city now, we left Justin's around 10 this morning and arrived around 1, as there was horrific rain along the way. We were watching Empire Strikes Back, repeating lines, and when Yoda says "Cannot get your ship out," Matt said along with him something slightly different by accident, it was quite amusing ;)
