It's a wrap on Grayson & Gortch - finally.

Had our last day of shooting finally on Grayson & Gortch, it's been a long time trying to get through this one project (while many others were postponed, delayed or outright cancelled) but it's finally all shot. And even if something is missing, I don't care, I'll find a way to make it work.

It's about half edited already, so I'll be attempting to make some sense of it all this week and hopefully cut a trailer pretty soon as well. I've got a couple other projects in the works, hopefully things will smooth out over the winter and things will get back on track for the few project in the works for next summer.

So, until whenever there's more news, here's some pictures from the last day.

Another instance of seeing a still of someone falling that at the time I had no idea their feet had left the ground quite so dramatically.

Next on the list are at least 2 photo shoots and the mini web series Home Sweet Hell.

Club 13 - Behind the scenes video

This was shot by Kim Johnston as I did the makeup and photo shoot. I'm planning on doing this for as many of the photo shoots as possible, might not always be - but here's hoping.

Also, I added a page to the website with this on it and a few of the images - this will hopefully be a regular edition.

Silas Wynne's Club 13

I did another photo shoot last night, this time rather then featuring one prosthetic, I did 3, two of which I had never used until now and one of which were the ear pieces I'd made recently. I've been holding off on making more because I wasn't sure how well they'd work out and I have to say I'm really impressed with the result, easily just as good as any professionally made prosthetic ears I've ever purchased.

So very soon I'll be putting these new pieces online - although I forgot to get photos of the raw, unpainted ears - I'll have to do that soon as well.

Anyway, here's some pictures, the initial idea was a sort of 70s lounge lizard kind of thing, I ended up calling it Club 13. The groovy dude in the middle of the picture below is a fellow Karl knew back in the early 70s called Silas Wynne (Draper Bulger), a Thuul Demon who own a place by the name of Club 13 - which was also the hottest place back in the day for demons to go out and enjoy themselves. With him are two two infamous Kane sisters (Heather Panton and Aleshia Farrell), not much was really known about them, other then they had supposedly had affairs with several important human political figures and as a result had amassed a small fortune through blackmail. Awesome stuff.

Overall it was a pretty easy shoot, the makeup took next to no time despite doing 3 people at once - but that's because the girls just had the ears and forehead pieces. During the shoot, Kim Johnston took some video footage, I'll be throwing it all together into a short video to be posted late today hopefully.

Here's the prosthetics used in this shoot:

More Grayson & Gortch goodness

Another scene shot. I think we attempted this one several times already and I'm kinda glad we held off for whatever reason. It's a sort of important scene, since a lot of the plot is really dished out at this point. We shot at a local restaurant/club - not sure how you qualify it - that was closed for the day, so we had to whole place to ourselves.

One more scene after this, not sure when that's going to happen, but it's nice to be finally getting close to the end. Anyway, here's some pictures:

You can see here the makeshift green screen used to hopefully create a hole through Graham, no idea if it'll work since I don't believe I got background images of what's behind him. Ah well, we'll see.
