It was a bloody bloody battle

It was a long bloody battle that lasted until near dawn. The Protectorate of Menoth’s Rainbow League fought bravely against the evil, vile, mean, persnickety forces of Khador, and lost. Darn red freezing robots. 😉
I present this slideshow of the carnage, as a memorial to the brave forces who were fiercely destroyed this morning at 3am. Nicia was taken out in the first turn, to my great displeasure because I didn’t even get to use her sword canon.

Video footage with a synopsis and what-I-wanted-to-do I’m sure will appear on the internet at some point in time. Much like this did.

Footage

Saturday we did some wrap up of basic pre-production stuff, and then went outside and started filming. We didn’t stay out too long, because we were freezing, but we managed to finish a scene in 30-40 takes, and get some fun behind-the-scenes footage of costumes/hair and make up, and I managed to grab a couple screenshots of the footage of the cast in character.

The Cast, Shooting

Basically, we just walked in the cold.

Shooting

And somehow managed to look really good and remarkably un-frostbitten in the process.

The script is a work in progress – we only have a few scenes done, but since we can only film on the weekends, we can write and finish whatever props that we need to work on during the week. Thankfully, the costumes are done (we were worried about mine until we raided the closet and found something perfect) so really all that’s left are actual props that won’t come in until later.

Cloak and Lenses

We got a new lens the other day, and decided to take some test footage outside with Alex’s sisters and me in my cloak. So here’s a really cool shot that has the cloak and the outdoors. If you look closely you can see a little bit of the purple trim around the hood.
