    Mmmph. I must've been out of my mind at that suggestion. :D :D :D

    In all seriousness I did have an idea for Knighthood 2 ... just don't tell Michelle I ever mentioned it. :D

    I'm glad you made DID very clear in your statement. Otherwise you'd be looking for a new markell/editor/vfx.
    ;)
    No way I'm going through that again ;)

    Well the primary ADR day is now over :)
    Sam got ALL her lines delivered, I got a good portion done, and all the other characters got all their stuff down.
    VERY long day, especially for Darran and I, setting it up last night and very early this morning.
    Adrian did a freaking AWSOME job as our sound engineer. Working his magic on our little 4 channel mixer (that Darran's mate lent to us due to an emergancy situation). Really happy with the hard work he did...as well as Darran who had to replace him towards the end of the session.

    T'was an extremely hot day in the room today. Computers buzzing with all windows and doors closed and no use of fans or aircon. Harsh conditions but every one who had to perform managed to block it out and go for it...so did everyone else there today.

    I've now got the massive library of audio to start mixing with the footage (I'm gonna pull my freakin hair out) but the end result will certainly be worth it.
    In the next few weeks we're gonna do another ADR session to wrap up the scenes for Michael and I and we'll be done and done.

    WoooHooo!!!

    Every show has to have a mystery girl. :D

    Saturday's good for me, lads...assuming Adrian's okay to come play as well; he's the only other person other than Elliot and I who needs to do his lines.

    As to sound recording, I have a returning feeling of excitement about the film, which sparked when the first scenes began to roll and as the day went on. 36+ degree heat is pretty nasty to contend with, but seeing large portions of the film edited and then hearing the cast's dialogue over the top of it just was an amazing experience. I can't wait for the day the saber sounds go in, but I'm actually most happy with the scenes where there isn't running around, fighting, or CGI ships roaring from one side of the galaxy to the other. Elliot and Sam's performances are fantastic.

    Highlights of the ADR day:

    (1) Dan, the Invisigoth ;) , and Ron finally revealing their masterplan and reasons for demanding masks/no facial features. They were done in about five minutes flat because, unlike Milli Vanilli, they didn't have to lip-synch.

    (2) Darran's plasma TV after close to ten hours of viewing footage on it. The burnt-in image did fade after a few minutes...

    (3) Achieving the delicate balance between muting a laptop's fan and keeping the chips from melting into component elements.

    (4) The Carbonated Rainbow of drinks in Darran's fridge, at least until around 3:00 or so.

    (5) The slowest service at McDonalds in the known universe.

    My Highlights of the Day:
    Most of which I have on video and are going on the ADR doco.

    1) Getting to see a bunch of people I havn't seen for a long time. Most for over 60 months.

    2) Seeing my work on a big screen with other people. I have a massive TV at home but it's not the same when you watch it alone ;)

    3) Getting a second chance at your perfomances. Well, more or less, discovering we still had creative control over the film, despite the fact it was shot over a year ago. It's amazing how you can change a scene in the way you perform during ADR.

    4) Cracking up laughing at my superman pose in the film....was fun trying not to laugh, and put Sam off, as she was recording her voice for the scene.

    5) Laughing my arse off as Sam recorded sounds that were awfully close to those made by a women in the process of having an orgasm.

    6) Having captured item: 5 on video with TWO cameras.

    ...
    ...

    Yeah...good day.

    Kart: Yeah, still want to do the audio commentary, but I think we'll leave the commentaries to second-to-last in the overall process...mostly because we've still got to assemble the Mother Ship. Er, final cut. But yeah!

    Can I possibly be a bit of a pain and listen to how I sounded (if you can hear it alright) in the filming process of it? I would really prefer to listen to both that and the ADR and possibly have a say on which gets used, if that isn't going to be too much of a hassle of course. From the vague memory I have of the filming, I think I prefer my delivery of that than how I did it for the ADR. Although the final say is up to Mr Director Sir, so whatever works for you. :)

    Oh, and all the Knighthood stuff that was hosted on my webspace is down. Our account got deleted and we've reconnected under a different username so all the stuff that was uploaded got deleted with the account. There's way too much for me to upload now if Troy is working on a new one, we may as well just wait a while until that is completed. If someone can get onto Warwick to make a new site coming soon kind of image (or make it yourself), I'll put up a new page with a link to the news until the new site is up and running.

    My guess is those links are just the ones that I had on the original site. They had been up there since the beginning and you didn't complain then. Just ask Troy/Dazza to add a link. :p
