Yo man, the title says it all!! The Action of Film Festival takes place this month in Long Beach, CA. I'm heading out there and meeting Brianna Shaughnessy, the actress who played Willie- the super kick ass girl! So i announced last week that we were an official selection and learned tonight that Deployment Strategy is 1 of 5 nominations for Best Special Effects!
Coolness! X-Realms.net, one of the coolest sites for news and forum discussions just gave us some coverage! I've been a member there for a little while (the discussion boards are sweeet) and have been sharing movie updates and getting great support from a nice group of people who love all that is great in life- action, sci-fi, movies, comics, etc. Take a look at the screenshot after the jump or just go to their site now!
Breaking news!!- DEPLOYMENT STRATEGY IS AN OFFICIAL SELECTION AT TWO FESTIVALS!!!!!!!!!!!!
|Trucking right along here with festival submissions. I've applied to 30 so far with more to come. The end of May is a popular time for festival admissions which is why i set that June 1st deadline and was so quiet for a while on this site! Withoutabox.com is my new favorite site and, yes, Chris Gore's Ultimate Film Festival Survival Guide is my new reading material! Here's the list of festivals I've applied to so far...|
Notice anything different on the site? :) Check out my fancy-shmancy Trailer Viewer on the right!!
So Rob Daly's finished his sound design and mix. I won't lie and say it's 100% complete, BUT we met our deadline of having a festival-ready version done on June 1st.
So for the past month, I've been working to get the final sound design completed. I met with Rob last week to review progress and to see how the sound designs been shaping up. So far so good! Rob's come up with some unique sounds for each soldier's machine guns, he's added some awesome splatter sounds for when bodies get shot, there's a great ripping sound now when appendages get torn off, and my beloved Multibodies now have their own droid whine when they fly by!!
The film will be completed on June 1st.
So as Chris polishes off the score, here are the titles of each chapter. Do they make you excited to see/hear the film/score?? It does for me, but I'm biased!!!
1. New York 2055
2. The Specialist Consult/Diplomat Theme
3. Elevated and Hot
4. Sides are Drawn
5. Surround and Secure
6. That was no Mech
7. Hand-to-hand combat mod
8. Major Confrontation
11.Division 9 Theme (Reprise)
We'll have track samples up soon!!
Gizmodo today has such a great post about a new South Korean campaign for robot rights!! It gave me the jeebs cuz Deployment Strategy touches on this exact thing in the future where AI is not only possible but wide spread on the torrents and P2P networks!! I was compelled to post the article link here as well as this clip from the film after the jump!
