In order to get the best possible quality for the videos, I will be using YouTube as a host and will embed them in the blog. The videos will be “unlisted” so that they do not appear on my channel and on searches. Please, respect the privacy of these videos by not sharing them. These are meant for this blog only.
For my first video, I wanted to show you my work space where I will be making the film. A lot of people have asked about my set up, so this will give you an idea.
Next, I need to figure out what will go into the short film. My thinking is that I will just keep things going exactly where I left off in the demo film, while removing most of the Guardian-Shepard subplot introduced at the beginning of the book and continuing through the first chapter. That part will be added back later when the long version of the film is done, but for the four minute short, I’m going to keep the story from Rex’s point of view as much as possible.
As you can see from page 26 of the graphic novel (posted above), the next scene I’m going to create is an inside shot of the flying saucer with its alien cargo. I’m not sure yet how this will transition from the previous scene but I’m imagining a cross-disolve or a fade-out/fade-in should work well.
