Okay, I know "BloodGod" isn't even out "officially" yet (I'm working on it if I don't get the deal I want I'll just distribute the damn thing through FilmBaby or something, tired of getting ripped off by companies, know what I mean?) but I've already started shooting the next flick and we're well into it now.













It's called "The Last BattleGround", I thought about calling it "The Demon Dead" but that's a little, I don't know, generic I guess. I like the sound of "The Last BattleGround" better...but it's not really a place, it takes place inside the characters. That's where the last BattleGround really happens, they have to overcome stuff inside themselves, it's the real meat of the flick.



The movie is follows bunch of folks, all seemingly unconnected.

There's two of the most pathetic hitmen ever to walk the face of the planet.



There's an abused girl who depends on her invisible friend to get her through rough times (that's her in the mirror.)



There's these two...a girl who lives on the streets and an artist who's been noticing a change in the world around him...



-there's more, but basically we follow these folks on the day that hell takes over the world.

In movie's we're always hearing about the war between heaven and hell...and if hell wins...the get earth, only someone always stops it.










Well fuck that...look...this is it...hell has won...there's no saving us anymore, the demons get earth...and this is about the night it happens.









There's no place to run...all kinds of crazy insane shit is happening...The dead are coming back as demons, manipulated by their sins, the ground is opening and creatures are coming out, everyone is turning against each other....

I want a really BIG feel to this thing...I want it to at feel epic and big. I've got big ambitious plans for this thing. So once again, check often for updates. We're already filmed a ton...but we're just getting started! As always, I appreciate any feedback I can get!







Keep in mind, we've just started shooting...there's lots more to come!

Allright! Another night of filming in the can. Like I said, this time we have the world ending and I would LOVE to do explosions and Cthulu coming down from the heavens to reign down his wrath...but you know...it's gonna happen...just offscreen...which sucks I know. But I'll work it out.

Anyway we have big crowd scenes coming up, just to show the general chaos and we filmed a small one tonight- Check out the people running around!





It's really fun to do this kind of stuff with so many people at my disposal!

Then we have the monsters! Hope you can make this out-





Kinda dark I know.

These are in better light-









I am a fan of Lovecraft and some of the monsters are definitely going to be inspired by him. But anyway, next week we'll film some more and in the future we're planning these really massive scenes with great big crowds. I know like usual...this stuff is low-budget as hell, but I hope you get a kick out of them anyway. Be back soon with more!

Okay, so big filming night. Tons of people were going to be there, the most I’ve ever filmed with. I stayed up the entire night getting effects ready…masks…tentacles…guts…blood…suits…lots and lots of work. Took me all night, got to sleep around 8 in the morning, then I went to work at 11:30, I got off at 7:30 and soon as I got home I got the rest of the stuff ready, then it was ON.

Got to tell you, we had a ton of people out there…





-and they were all ready to go. I can’t thank them enough, it’s pretty thankless work running around and getting killed, but man they were just gung-ho. It was a pleasure and really cool having all those folks at my disposal and man, they got into it. I really wish I could repay them. I guess the only thing I can do it make the movie as kick ass and as amazing it could be!



After we got through the huge crowd stuff it was off to my place for more filming…we ended up going until about one in the morning and when it was over I was completely exhausted, but holy shit we got some brilliant stuff!

We were driving through hordes of people and man I was scared we were gonna hit somebody!







OOPS!









This was just the big scale stuff...just to give the movie some scope...afterwards we got some more intimate stuff, which, less be honest is the bulk of the flick. If you don't care about the characters it doesn't matter how much carnage you put on the screen...



















And we actually filmed a lot more than this! I can tell you folks what...this is without a doubt my biggest movie...and it's actually going to get even more crazier. I'm letting everything loose with this one, going all out...

...and we haven't even gotten to the good stuff yet!

Allright here we have a little "promo reel" for the flick, don't take it too seriously, I don't even consider it a teaser trailer, I was really just throwing some scenes together to show all the xtras but it came out kinda groovy so I'm throwing it around. Just a bunch of crazy random stuff...but again...it's almost like a mini-trailer...only almost two minutes long...

I'll have it up on youtube tomorrow, but for now, check her out-

So we're out there filming last night, and we're getting quite the crowd out there watching us, people just kept gathering and gathering. We were ilming right outside an apartment building, and the crazy tenants were yelling at us all night. One lady was screaming something about God and abortions and other lunacy, the other night we filmed in the same spot and some guy kept mooning us and showing us his balls.

Anyway, more and more people are watching and I keep throwing them into the movie, "Ddon't just stand there, run through the shot!" It's suppose to be chaos anyway.

So eventually these two little girls show up in their pajamas (they were watching from the window of the building and showed up wondering what was going on, they looked like they were like 10 and Liz was like, "Be in the movie!" So now I got all these strangers and these two little girls running around the dead bodies and chaos. Everything's cut so fast you can barely tell who's who anyway so I'm just throwing everyone in there....

So finally we get to the scene where our two main characters run and jump into a car to get away.

I say "action!" our main two characters run, get into the car, and then, out of nowhere, one of the little girls jumps in with them and yells, "Go go get out of here!"

HAHA! It was pretty funny. Then the cops showed up and we had to move to a different spot.

Great night of filming...here's a few pics!























So there we go Wink Incidentally, "Cold Blooded" is now one of Michigan Streets best sellers!

If you haven't checked it out yet, you're missing out on a cool little horror movie!

And as always you can see even more pictures at myspace.com/sonnyfernandezfilms

I was just going to make this for my friend actually, but I like the way it came out so I'm sharing it here! I know it's "Mad World" and cliched as hell but well...what are you going to do?

I hope youtube doesn't make me take it down! There is some pretty cool footage in there though, so those interested in seeing more stuff might want to give it a look!

I made giant feet...

that's what I did.


While other people are asleep...watching infomercials...snuggled up next to their loved ones...playing video games...dancing at clubs...getting drunk...going through the night doing whatever the hell it is normal people do...

I make giant feet...





....

so it goes.

Just for fun.

This is us screwing around with that eyeball having some fun. Just a gag reel, in no way any real indication of anything from the movie, but you can see it in action.

Whoo boy. Okay. Done filming for a couple of days. Things are tentatively set for Sunday, I'm 65% certain we'll be getting more done that day. Tonight went awesome. I'm so friggin' tired!

First off. I love monsters! I love thinking them up, I love making them. This guy is pretty cool Smile





This is what the inside of his head looks like...in case you were wondering...



Then we have THIS fucking thing.

It moves...it screams...it WALKS...












As if that wasn't enough...we busted out the giant legs tonight...and oh man...seeing this things in action was hilarious. Pictures just CAN'T do it justice...you've got to see them walking down that street...

in this pic they're coming forwards...all in one shot..





Folks, like I said, pics just can't really give you a good idea of what it was like seeing those things stomping down that steet...
Yessiree this kid is sure having a crazy night Very Happy and it's going to get crazier for him!



Hope you guys like the pics and I hope you guys are enjoying all the behind the scenes clips (I love that giant eyeball clip, cracks me up, we had fun that night). We're not even close to being done!
