The aftermath of the battle

I spent a better part of the day editing the footage from Saturday, and it looks pretty swanky. I spent the rest of the day, and I'm still spending it, organizing all the footage from the last 4 years - and miraculously I think it's all there. Either way I reckon I can make it work somehow.

It's an absolute massive task trying to sort all this out, I've had to move almost everything around, sort through the script and make sure I've got everything labeled right and in the proper order. Next will be a rough assembly of the entire movie just to get an idea of the approximate running time...I've really no idea what to expect there.

It's a little overwhelming hunting through about 8 hard drives to see where you scattered everything, luckily, I kept things fairly tidy. So it's looking like we're all good so far, but it's taking forever to transfer everything over to the one drive I'm storing it all on. And then I have to take all that, and make a backup on another drive. Fun.

So while I'm doing that, I'll leave you with some stills from the footage from the other day.

The demon's about to find out the hard way why
not a good idea to jump outand
surprise Demon Hunters.

A good solid knee to the chest should do the trick.

Poor little Demon Hunters have lost their way.
Makes me think of Scooby Doo for some reason.

Tim having an Indiana Jones moment.

Draper takes out Jonny with a
rubber sword to the neck.

Draper and Joseph prepare for battle.

Tim sees he's missing out on the
senseless violence and
decides to join in.

Rick crushes Jonny with
the warhammer of DOOM!

Draper in an Aragorn moment.

A job well done kids.
You can never kill too many demons
in the run of a day.
I should take this time to point out all the actors in that last scene, we have Draper, Rick (they've been in the movie several times up to this point), Tim Gormley (he was in the original scene) and Joesph Ambrose (who came onboard a few weeks ago) - all playing the Brotherhood. And Jonny Hanes, Andrew Mooney (their first time in the movie), Graham Putnam (his third role in the movie) and Myk Hambly (his second time around) as the Demon Army.

I also had Kim Johnston helping me out behind the camera, taking pictures and keeping an eye on me to make sure I was actually recording something. And Pete Murphy came along to videotape the scene, but we couldn't get a video camera, so he just hung out and guarded our stuff.

Thanks again guys for doing this, it was definitely well worth it. After shooting this, I can almost see why there are folks who enjoy that LARPing thing, this was pretty much the same deal with just a little more disorganization and chaos.
