Today we would like to introduce one of our ‘visionaries’: artists that are going to contribute to our film project with concept sketches and elaborate artworks.
Erik Kriek, a comic artist and illustrator from the Netherlands, is the first one, since his new graphic novel “From Beyond and Other Tales” has been released now in Germany and he will be on a signing tour in Bochum, Bonn, Frankfurt, Hannover and Berlin in the next few days.
You can see a preview of his adaptation of “The Outsider” if you follow this link. Unfortunately there is no English version planned at the moment, but we will keep you informed!
Well, we had no no luck in the last few weeks: First one of our brand-new hard disk drives decided to get a severe head crush. That wouldn’t have been a problem, since there is a backup drive with exactly the same data on it. At least we thought that. Unfortunately one folder wasn’t mirrored. Recovery attempts all failed. In the end we lost most of the making of material we shot during our recent additional shooting day in the studio. It’s a minor loss, but still very annoying.
Then another hard disk drive with rendered visual effects layers on it got lost in time and space AKA the German Mail Service. Since the sending VFX artist went into holidays afterwards, it took us almost three weeks to get it back and be able to send it out to the other artist again.
Apart from this we’re on good track – you will see some beautiful things in a few weeks!
