    Most likley we'll just have both (or all three if Carrie's coming) camera's totally pointed at the characters, and none at the ground, at least for that shot.

    Something else just occured to me: all of the cameras must be totally steady during this shot, or else the bluescreen will not work. Any jiggle will be picked up and render the shot usless (at least that section, we can use camera cuts to make the rest fit).

    Also remember that if we use the bluescreen, we'll need to shoot Roan alone pretending to talk with them, without the cameras moving.

    For this shot, we'll set up everyone on a tripod, angle the camera's and just walk away. Don't even touch them until the end of the day, becuase everything needs to be at the exact same angle when we shoot it a second time.

    Just to confirm...

    We're meeting tommorow at the same Loews at the same location at 1:00PM?

    Who can stay afterwards? Do you think that after filming (to celebrate our creation) we should go watch a movie? There are a lot of good movies playing next weekend (Head of State, Anger Management, and The Core to name a few), it might be fun to watch a movie as a SWAP event.

    The only problem I can think of at this point are prices, which may get rather high. I may be able to pay for a ticket or two for someone else if needed.

    I think I have a sheet that is blue. That might work if it is pulled tight and had no wrinkles.
    Bring that, and also bring something that will make it stick to the wall, such as a staple or nail.

    *sorry for putting so many posts in a row, here...*

    I'm editing a rough draft of what we have to bring with me tommorow, and I'm at the point where GC introduces the Stormie award.

    Wouldn't it be great it we could have a little title at the bottom of the screen with "Little Known facts about the Stormie". We could have a blast with this, there's got to be something funny we could come up with about the original origin of the Stormie or something.

    The first person to ever win the award was actually a Stormtrooper, thus, each award given thereafter resembles a Stormtrooper... or something along those lines.

    Anyway, just make sure you shoot the blue ghosty scene once without the bluescreen in case it doesn't work.

    Hello everyone, I'm Roan Jivers with the latest update on Titanic Productions newest film, The Stormie Awards!

    The weather co-operated with beautiful sunny skies as Titanic Productions, under the direction of ZeroCool, wrapped up principal shooting on Saturday. Despite earlier uncertainity as to their participation due to contract disputes ;) Qui-Gon Jinn and Darth Maul did make their appearances, looking absolutely fabulous! Unfortunately, technical difficulties resulted in the abandonment of the planned bluescreen effects for the Jinn-Maul scene.

    The special cameo appearance of "Uncle George" concluded filming, with the last minute addition of a high speed chase by security.

    Cast and crew were treated to a rough cut of the previous filming by head camera co-ordinator Orekal. Reports are that responses were very favorable.

    Afterwards, some of the cast and crew headed to Eat-n-Park, for a nice dinner.

    Next Friday will be a special advance viewing of the rough cut at the "Movies & Munchies" held at Noble_Kale's room at the Pittsburgh comicon.

    This is Roan Jivers, thanking you for tuning in!

    Well, at the least I hope everyone had fun.

    I am very curious to see how that comes out. I would like to be part of the next film. Has there been any discussion about the next one?

    For the Survivor: Endor film I am in the process of selecting a location, which can be discussed on that thread. Everything else is still in the early planing stages but PM me if you want to know more.
