In the aftermath of BZK2!

Calling it BZK2! sounds like a virus of some sort and while normally I hate it when movies shorten their titles, this one is just too long to always type out. At least it's not shortened to B2K! which would be short for Bimbo 2ombie Killers! That would result in douchbaggery of the highest order and my demise would surely follow at the hands of people with good taste.

Anyway, that wasn't the point of all this, the point is the movie is very nearly done. I think I broke a personal record for completion time on a project like this. About 2 months from beginning to end, from coming up with the vague idea to finally posting it online.

All that's left is a run through of the audio to clean it up and make sure the levels are alright and then convert the video into HD. Probably a good day's work, but I won't be doing it today probably. I'm finishing a rough SD version to show the author of the Zombie Encyclopedia and that's it for now. No one will be able to see it until I've arranged a private screening for the cast and crew, and then it'll be posted online.

So now I'm left with this slightly less then rushed feeling I've had for the last 10 days or so since we shot the movie. It's done...ish. Now what? I've got a short project I'd like to do end of August, nothing too strenuous, should be a decent shoot - fairly elaborate since it's all one single take and about 3 1/2 minutes long. We'll see how that goes.

In the meantime I'm hoping to get back to the photoshoots, I've got quite a few lined up and hoping for the outdoor ones that the weather cooperates. It's been a bit of a bugger lately.

And then I'd like to start sculpting some new stuff. Not prosthetics, but props. I've been wanting to just attempt a small statue or something. I don't know. I feel like I've been neglecting the business in favour of other things lately and I want to add some new stuff to the store over the next few months and get things ready for Halloween.

I missed the boat again on getting more wholesale clients this year, but that's alright. I've still got a lot of bugs to work out in my whole production process.

So until I post BZK2! I'll be working away on updating the websites, making a few new pieces and doing a few more photoshoots.
