    C'mon clone_me, I sent you a pm 4 days ago, you read it 18 hours later, no response, considering the pm i sent i should have at least gotten a decent and civil reply if you are truthful, or a denial and whine if you aren't.
    the lack of response and time taken between your reading the pm and posting now only tells me you had to get your story straight.

    but the bottom line is this, you are either soulkrusher, posting exactly as you have been before, or you are in fact a new person, who has posted nowhere before except this thread barring a few introductory posts of little meaning or content to establish a shaky identity at best.

    in either case, you are seriously annoying people with your self righteousness and pompous carrying on with your attitude, again a solid indicator of the person you actually are, regardless of the sock you are using, you do come across as exactly the same person, i need only check my PMs from sk to read the same attitude that you are posting with.

    as i PMed you, i'd like to think i'm wrong and that you may in fact be a whole new person for the fanfilm interest here in perth, but nothing of what you are saying is even close to ringing true, or i would have at least had a pm in response, or SH would have heard from you, neither of which has happened.

    Hawk, you can do ip scans, is my gut reaction accurate?

    MFT, this isn't the appropriate place to discuss these things. Follow stinky's lead and keep this topic on the subject of fan films, please. PM me if you want to ask me something.

    In an attempt to get this thread back on topic:

    filming was GREAT!! Great camera and the weather was on our side... *Remembers to say a prayer of thanks to god*

    Just some more shots to be shot this weekend and then my job really starts with all the Computer Graphics.

    Second Day of Filming Report (abbreviated)

    Again, utter determination from everyone involved to get the job done, and get it done well.

    Down to the beach at about 8:45-ish, having ingested (again) large quantities of coffee and other stimulants. Everyone in costume, and awaaaayyy we go...

    The afternoon was a lot more hectic than the morning, methinks...mostly because of large, black clouds slowly creeping in from the west. One of us basically watched Garden Island for the first signs of rain, knowing that would be our last chance to finish...

    Ironically, I think we came out with our best work in that afternoon. There is something to be said for time constraints, I think...:D

    And for everyone watching, a few of Saintheart's Laws Of Fanfilming:

    1. Utilise all the skills of your cast. Do not be afraid to allow your special effects guy to jump off six-metre cliff faces if he asks. ;)

    2. Have faith in the Force. Particularly if the mask of one of your characters keeps moving and making the character wearing it basically rely on memory during lightsaber duels :D :D

    3. Always remember sunblock...or have a generous person able to donate moisturiser.

    Next weekend: final scenes (in the afternoon) and hopefully pickup shots (in the morning) ... any thoughts, anyone?

    I'll attempt to get the camera again, but it depends on my partner... Hang on, no it doesn't... It depends on the other group... I'll ask the teacher if I can book the uber camera to do some "work"... But yeah, I'll post a "yay" or "nay" tomorrow... It should be good... I've borrowed it twice before now and no problems with it... So yeah.

    Third Day of Filming (Abbreviated)

    ...And He saw that it was good.

    It's done.
    Seven months after the inception, principal photography on "Home" is finally complete.
    It came about through a series of pickup shots at Cockburn one more time, and then a couple of hours at the City of Melville Civic Centre.

    The last shot was a lengthy take between two of the principal characters, who stuck it out and finished it on a high note.

    My thanks to each and every person who came along and helped on this thing...once more.

    Now, on to editing, and SFX. It's on to me, Shadow, and Darth_Soup to bring it home.

    If I see another beach before the summer, I may well go out of my mind. :D

    ...Sorry if this seems a bit incoherent. 9:30 p.m. after a 7:00 a.m. start always feels like three beers. :D

    Almost forgot: a special thanks to Darth_Soup and FaLLeN_AnGeL for the cameras on the shoots. That Canon XL-1 in particular was very, very impressive.

    Kartnaym: sorry you missed it, too...we got there a bit late...hope you didn't come and miss us by a few minutes...
