Re: "Polaris"

^^^In that job, if you don't make somebody mad, you're probably not doing it right! Even with all the advantages of doing an audio drama, I'm quite certain that I've bruised some feelings over the last couple of months while filling a similar role. Ah well, at least you're aware that you might be stepping on some toes. I always wonder about people who go through life in perpetual "bull in a china shop" mode without giving any consideration to the possibility that they are leaving a mass of angry people and hurt feelings in their wake.

My heartfelt thanks to Dennis for giving me this opportunity to help make this happen.
My heartfelt thanks to you, guy, for saving my ass. And I'm sure happy to have you as a new found friend...peculiar, how different RL remains from interaction on the Web.

People here may not believe it, but I really like to be liked. DS9Sega did a job that I'm tempermentally incapable of. It's a mild exaggeration, I guess, to pretend that the First A.D. plays a "bad guy," in that I think everyone on our production ultimately admired and liked him for what he did for us and enjoyed his company (in the nanoseconds that he was allowed to just "be there"). Still and all, his work required a thick skin and the day-after-day willingness to redirect and refocus the attention of a crowd who were often tired and hungry and not in a hurry to move.

We shot about 34 pages of script in six days, holding to twelve-hour days for at least the first half of the shoot, under very limited conditions (and guess what, I don't know the exact page count because it was DS9Sega who kept track of it and I'll have to ask him for the final). He made it all possible.

Re: "Polaris"

I don't know how he does it, but DS9Sega managed to be both a hardass and a pussycat all at the same time.

Hmm, maybe I didn't need that image in my head.

I assume that's meant in jest.

Indeed it was, I had hoped the little icons would clear that up.

This looks like a potential classic here; can't wait to buy the DVD.

Re: "Polaris"

I have to agree that this does, indeed, look awesome. I was a little ambivalent about the early set photos during construction but the in-camera stuff looks incredible. Ditto the costuming and everything else.

Gonna be a blast to watch this unfold.

It's always a struggle between trying to show some progress and tipping stuff before it's ready. We had photographs of some of our actors in costume, for example, that they weren't all comfortable with and so we didn't post them online. The actors were probably right. Doing these movies, especially on this kind of budget, is all about illusion and that includes lighting and camera angles and everything else.

We've got some shots in camera that we probably won't post until effects are applied to them. We've got imagery that won't be seen until we can present it in the context of a trailer...so on, and so forth.

And we got by with the Burke chairs.

Re: "Polaris"

Here are some photos from the last day of shooting on "Polaris" in Fort Washington. The first couple are of Garrett D. Melich as a character named "Gaitanis," along with our lead Paul R. Sieber as "Sam Fredericks:"





The last is Fredericks with his ray-gun.

Been bugging me ever since I saw the shoulder patch you're using, but I finally figured out where I'd seen it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Screen_Gems_Logo.svg
