One of these things is not like the other. One is our stunt blade, minus furniture, made by Tristan McCallum, and the original is by the legendary Peter Lyon. Both of these chaps work at Weta Workshop, and we are very proud to have them working with us.
This weekend, we are meeting with John Harding, and Lesley Burkes-Harding to nut out our next steps in budget and design/costumes. Also meeting with Mathew Knight, who directed photography on the feature Good for Nothing.
It has been a while, and in our absence from bringing you news, we have successfully raised $5300 on New Zealand’s crowd funding website Pledge Me
and now we have launched phase 2 on Indiegogo.com
for a more international appeal and greater budget, for other parts of the preproduction process.
In other news, our partner producer, Melissa Dodds, is currently in New York, at the prestigious TriBeCa Film Festival, promoting her latest short film Whakatiki which had its world premiere yesterday.
Agnes is cast!
We have finally cast the role of Agnes, our missing link in the core cast. We are very proud to have Anya Tate-Manning joining the team, rounding out a brilliant group of actors who will take us back to the Middle Ages with their “wicked-mad acting skills.”
The first taste of some of our favourite shots taken during our camera test day, by on set photographer Iva Lenard. Ben Krul is on the receiving end of a brutal strike from Blair Apperley, who doubled as our hero Knight for the fight. More to come.
More wonderful, creative people are being added regularly, so keep checking in. Any questions, just ask away.
Welcome back, and take a look at our cast and crew pages as they take form. We’re building a team of truly inspiring talent who are hankering to climb aboard this behemoth as we gather momentum.
First up: Meet Mr. John Bach, a brilliant actor who possesses the gravitas and proper, physical ability to give the leading role life. The only other actor who could approach the role in our minds is Liam Neeson, and frankly, we don’t need him. Check out John’s picture in our Cast page.
Thanks for checking us out, and watch this space. We are developing an exciting film and here’s the place to learn more about it. Images to follow soon!
