    Here be dragons

    Our two location scouting tours into the Swabian Jura have been quite successful. Looks like we can shoot a lot of scenes not far from our home bases.

    But there are also bad news: The Castello di Sammezzano in Italy faced legal chaos in the last few weeks. The company we negotiated with positively suddenly lost authority and now the castle will be put to auction again at the end of this month. Very likely that this flip-flopping sinks our plan to shoot there in late summer. Let’s hope a more stable situation will emerge soon so that we can at least go there next year.

    Location Scouting for “The Dreamlands”

    Looking for Dream Guides!

    Completion of first “Eternal War” episode has been postponed by around a month due to final editing changes. In addition to the post-production on that, Huan also has to do some work on the martial arts script to finish the funded screenplay writing process. That’s why we are looking for help with some tasks for the next few weeks and months now – mainly for German-speaking volunteers though (makes communication easier). If you are interested, switch over to the German version of this post.

    Recap

    Hope you all had great holidays! Here is a monumental 50-minute video update in which Huan recapitulates the journey so far:

    Let’s look forward to an exciting 2018! Let’s get it on!

    The Ningyo

    This beautiful-looking short film was kickstarted four years ago and is on tour since a couple of months (yesterday at the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival for example). Really curious to see the end result and to learn more about their amazing DIY approach.

    UPDATE: “The Ningyo” has become a web series. The amazing short film was transformed into a first episode which can be watched here!

    Workload

    Just so that no one thinks we are sitting idle – here is the current VFX breakdown for our short movie. Green means done and yellow means half-way done. We spent the last 8 months editing and shaping this beast (all the while negotiating and discussing “The Dreamlands” with our would-be partners) and will dedicate the next 5 months in completing it. Currently a small team of around a dozen highly motivated artists is working on this. Can’t wait to show you more!

    Lovecrafter

    Huan Vu interviewed by LOVECRAFTER magazine by the German Lovecraft Society – this first edition is putting focus on Lord Dunsany, who has been an important influence on H.P. Lovecraft, especially visible in the Dreamlands stories.

    Footsteps

    One foot in front of the other…


    It’s a wrap for the short film after two-and-a-half additional shooting days last week-end! We had a great time together with really beautiful amazing results.

    This picture shows me spontaneously directing my personal Terrence Malick tribute shot :D – Water level wasn’t that high when we scouted two weeks ago. Love it when random luck makes a good idea even better.

    Big thanks to the whole crew and cast – and our incredible supporters at Ludwig Kameraverleih who made this possible! <3

    Meanwhile “The Dreamlands” are lurking behind the Wall of Sleep, more news very soon…

    Cheers,
    Huan
