Pre-production Woes

Sorry for the long hiatus, I've been really busy with school and haven't had the time to post any progress reports. For the past few weeks I have been working on test footage for the effects heavy sequences and have pretty much figured out the ways to go about constructing each shot. There are a few CG segments that I'm particularly proud of and cannot wait to implement into the actual movie.

Unfortunately, one key prop has prevented me from kicking off the filming process. I'm currently trying to figure out the best way to build and paint the thing but alas I have no real experience with detailing. I'm hoping to get this pre-production stuff over with so I can hurry up and film the movie before it becomes yet another one of my ideas that never makes it past a mere scribble on my notebook. But hey, at least this time I've bothered to make a blog dedicated to the idea from my over-active imagination. Who knows, maybe this one will actually come to fruition.
