Plenty of Awesome Cave Footage

July 20, 2006

Just got back from Rapid.  I was lucky enough to be the only person on the tour of Crystal Cave at that particular time.  I got tons of good footage.  The lighting in there was perfect, and the steps, handrails and light fixtures really helped add to the effect of it being the Batcave and […]

New story boards

July 18, 2006

After my closer examination yesterday of the sites of filming, I knew that my story boards would change slightly.  There is really only a small change, but below are the finished storyboards.  Hopefully this week I can actually get that Crystal Cave shot. -H

Say NO to weed

July 17, 2006

I decided to take a closer look at the gym’s parking lot and the other down town locations.  I believe I’ve selected the area where Batman & Joker will fight.  It isn’t much longer than say a 4 foot radius, but I did notice a few select things that will require a few specific shot […]

Fun with MSpaint

July 14, 2006

Here is a picture I made of myself, and what I may look like with that chin.  This pic has basically made me decide that I will get that mask below.  Now all I need is the materials to blend them all together. -H

what sky?

July 10, 2006

I got my lights and I got my lighting book.  I tested the workman lights out, and WOW.  They will be all I need.  I thought about doing some test shooting at the gym with the work lights, but I figured that while I"m there I might as well make the most of it.  So, […]

fitted for the contacts

July 7, 2006

Got my sort of prescription for my cosmetic contacts.  I probably won’t buy the actual lenses for a little while, they are supposed to last a year, but I’ll hold back for a month or so just incase, wanna make sure I don’t have to buy them agian as I think they are like $40 […]

More Test Shooting…

July 5, 2006

So, the storage unit place called.  $100 monthly for their largest one.  NO WAY.  But, for $43 a month, I can get one that is half the size.  So I got my lawn chair, my camera and my tripod, and went down there and did some testing.  The cheaper one will work FINE, I have all […]

test footage in costume

July 5, 2006

I went out in Joker costume and did some test footage in costume.  I’m glad I did, as I relized 2 things.    1. Joker suit looks great but only in a good amount of light.  I used the local street lamp in combo with my cars headlights on bright mode.  That really brought out the […]

appointment for contacts and…

July 4, 2006

I have officially got an oppointment setup for my contact fittings.  No reply from the storage unit guy, so after the holiday, I’ll call again.  I’ve also desided that the shape of the nose piece I wore on halloween is the shap I want for my Joker face.  The chin I think I’ll adjust, it’s […]

storage unit

July 3, 2006

Called the local storage unit guy and left a message.  Considering there isn’t but 2 left, I think I’ll start renting one, that will also help motivate me to get my ass in gear and get this filmed FAST!!!  I’ve desided to ony get 2 pieces for my Joker face.  The nose and the chin, […]

Alot of waiting…

July 1, 2006

I’ve ordered a book on the internet that is all about lighting.  It should give me alot of usefull info and help narrow down a specific model or type of light I can use for the film.  The lady I emailed about lighting I guess doesn’t feel like writing me back.  Oh well.  I didn’t […]
