Fan film update

We are pleased to say that the filming at Armadacon 26 went very well. We managed to get just about everything that we really wanted to get and managed to do it to the schedule too. We would like to thank everybody who participated and special thanks go to the hotel too, all made our job easier. We were very pleasantly surprised by the amount of acting talent there is amongst the attendees, many of the shots were done in one take and I don't think we went to more than four. We certainly gave the hotel something to talk about by ordering a jug of water and six glasses to be delivered to the Gents Toilets, apparently one of the more unusual requests they have every had. We still have quite a lot of filming to do, but it is all stuff that we didn't need to do at the convention, this will all be done over the coming months.

Thanks again to everyone, you are all stars.

Busy start to the new year

Apologies for not having updated the blog for a while, but thankfully we have been busy here at Planet VFX. The film project we have been working on periodically over the past couple of years is coming to an end. There is just the final finishing off and tidying up to do now so it should be in front of audiences soon. We hope to be able to give more details about it and our work on it soon. Sorry I can't say more now, but we take confidentiality very seriously here and won't give out details before we are allowed to.

We have a few other smaller projects in the pipeline, along with continued work on the Armadacon Fan Film. The later should have done principle filming at the 25th Armadacon last November, but sadly this had to be put back to this year's convention due to issues beyond our control. Following all the animation development work done over Christmas and New Year for other projects, we will shortly be preparing for filming later this year.
