    I second that... where did you score all the gear hardware?

    Looks super cool, and what an inspiring low budget effort...

    Mitch, will do.

    We searched around about a year and a half ago to find the tank, and a location to shoot. After looking up all of the rental places that we could find, and checking out the rates for some of the movie ranches north of LA, the director found a reenactment group that have been awesome to work with. These guys are way into the WWII stuff, and I'll often hear things like, "No, No, No! Only the SS would wear their cufflinks that way!" Their attention to detail can do nothing but help the project.

    We also had a great concept artist, found on deviantart, I believe. His name is Robert Simons, and his website features some Arbiter stuff. Super-Duper talented. His work really inspired, and helped to set the tone.

    It can be found here:

    It was the 20,000 leagues under the see stuff he did that made us contact him. Like I said, we have assembled a pretty great team. There's also a good mix of practical experience with raw talent. I'm honored to be working with them.

    Surely amazing. It does have a Halo feel to it, but the WWII twist gives it a little something extra. I can't wait to see the final project.

    WOW. That's all I have to say. Do you mind sharing your estimated budget for this whole project? Also, I just can't figure out how you got every frame to look like an HDR photograph?? Please do let us in on the secrets :) What are some of your lighting methods? What lenses are you using? Just tell me anything, this looked sooooo crisp and fantastic!

    Thanks!

    Some of the tech info is revealed in a post on Page 1...

    I'm not quite ready to kick down the whole plug-in soup (post work-flow) that I'm using just yet.

    I will, once we complete the whole the whole short, and it's played a few venues.

    The budget is still up in the air, but the response has been pretty incredible and we now have multiple funding options to consider. Meanwhile, everything is moving forward toward shooting in May. Locations are locked, art department is prepping props and rentals, talent is secured, 2 more test shoots are scheduled... Everything is moving forward!

    Just added a couple of behind the scenes clips to vimeo:

    http://vimeo.com/10072660

    http://vimeo.com/10072583

    The picture in picture was shot with a little Canon TX-1.

    The Red footage is pretty much as shot, and ungraded.

    Shooting test footage continues this weekend. We'll be working someone else's film at the same location, so that is a great way for us to get the camera department to get used to working together under very similar conditions at the same locations. Prep, Prep, Prep! The big shoot in May is coming fast. I'll try to post some stills next week.

    Until then, happy shooting!
