Okay, so here's the thing...I don't stop. I'm a movie making madman. I'm cutting up and finishing The Last Battleground, but we're ready to go with this one, our 'vampire movie.' The girls talked me into making it. At first I was like "Eh, but EVERYONE makes damn vampire movies..." I try to avoid what everyone else is doing.

But the more I thought about it, the more I realized how much I love vampire flicks...and I realized I could really rock one.

This ain't no Twilight stuff, no glittery vampires here, old school all the way, coffins, crosses, bats...the whole nine yards.

I guess it kind of started with this little bit of footage. My vampires need red eyes, so I found a program to do it- Check out this test footage taken from The Last Battleground and let me know what you think-

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6bkIGJfyzY

So originally we were going to have some really bloody vampire stuff to show. Our first kill so to speak, but it didn't work out so we jumped to plan B.

Now we were going to film at one location, but the lights there weren't working, so we jumped to our second location only then the camera stopped working, we thought it might just be the tape, so we ran and got some more, but it didn't help. So we jumped on the internet, found a quick fix, then we were up and running...

....and the battery went dead.

See, now a lot of people would say, "God just doesn't want you filming..." That's a bad attitude...the RIGHT attitude is, "God's seeing how BAD you want to film. He wants to see how bad you want it."

When I'm making one of my movies I DON'T STOP.

So we came back to my place to charge up and we went at it and it turned out to be one of the best nights of filming we've ever had. Stuff came out beautiful and Cody and Kim knocked it out the goddamn park!



These two are pretty much the heart and soul of the movie, they gotta have chemistry...



It was hard to keep it up but man, they did it and impressed the hell out of me.



















So that's it folks...the vampire movie is on a role now. We film again Thursday, STILL not cool vamp fanged teeth though...

but it's on the way!

Here's us kinda goofing around! Razz

Headed on down to the library today to nab a quick scene. It's important because it introduces a character who's kind of throwaway at first, but as the movie goes on she becomes one of the most important people. She's actually the Van Helsing of the movie.

We filmed tonight, but I'm trying like hell to finish up editing on The Last Battleground, there's just so much to it, so I'm damned tired and won't be putting up pics. Tommorrow hopefully...

then we film again on Wednseday, and if everything goes right...I'll actually have some vampires pics.

Yes...I do have vampires in my "vampire" movie.

Also, some news about effects soon. I've nabbed myself a bonafide effects artist...my own little Savini.

Stay tuned...

Good for you!

How dare someone claim to be a vampire when they have NO fangs and sparkle like a PIXIE when sunlight hits them.

Rock on!!

Haha, thanks Darkfall, as you can see from these pics...well...

fuck Twilight...

Hopefully some of these pics will be on the main page, but I know half the people that go there will never come to this little section, so for the loyal followers...



This is Daniella Marie....she's also acting in this, she's in the shots of the library above, but she's also a kick ass f/x artist.



But here you go...FINALLY! VAMPIRE PICS!

Oookay. Well this is pretty much the introduction to all the characters except for two, which is our special effects master Dani who doesn't come in until the library scene and Aaron, the kid in the shower in the above pics.

So here's all three of our vampire chicks, kind of goofing off....finally together for the first time...



That would be Kim Haarman, Casey McMillan and Liz Dockter.

Kim's kind of the youngest one, the perky one, she starts all the trouble. Casey is very laid back, takes things as they come and Liz...Liz is pretty evil.







now...we got a goddamn movie...







Ah yes and here we have the guys...

they've all been in my other movies in some form or another. Sperle finally has a speaking part! He's been in just about every other one, but he's always playing a monster, so this time I figured I'd give him something he could actually show his face in.











In a lot of ways the movie is a battle of the sexes...a lot of crazy crap is going to start going down, there's going to be lots of brother against brother and much chaos is going to ensue. So that's it for this week. I'll let you guys what's up for next week soon as stuff starts panning out!

Allright, more pics, I know I know everyone's like "Where's the chicks!" But there's going to be quite a bit vampire action going on.....



Once upon a time, before vampires glittered, you could use a crucifix to ward them off...those days are back.



I wish you could see the red eyes better!







Hopefully be back with more tommorrow! Very Happy

We've been filming a lot of talking. I'm really itching to get to some blood and guts and death. Hopefully next week.

But we filmed with the girls last night. Awesome scene.

Don't be tricked..... I'm telling you...nothing but trouble.









The girls actually go at it here...

HERE THERE BE SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!! :o

Dani is a fucking BADASS.



The coolest thing about this is it happens ALL IN ONE SHOT. Dani (Lex in the flick) stabs him from behind and we SEE the stake come out his chest. It's gonna be one of them (how the fuck did they do that?) moments.

Soooo when I was writing this thing I wrote this big ass party scene. It's huge, goes on for like 30 fucking pages and while I was writing it I was like..."Maannn...this is a BAD idea." It's a huge task, every character in the movie is in the scene, there's people spread out all over the place, tons of stuff happening, and you can't really film it at an actual party, because then noone is going to be worried about filming, sound will be a nightmare...people will be acting a fool...fucking up takes.

Just THINKING about the scene gave me nightmares....it was just one of those things I was just dreading doing. We've been working on it steadily for the last month or so, grabbing a little here, grabbing a little there,but we finally knocked most of it out the other night. Now we just have to throw an actual party for insert stuff!















"MEXXXIICCOO!!!"













We also filmed this scene...which I love to fucking death. We were out there at like 3 in the morning..just us...empty streets...was awesome. Nighttime plays a big part in the movie and the scene kind of captures that perfectly. I HATE daylight vampires...fuck that....vamires belong in the darkness.

I love these shots!

I always wanted to stab a vampire in the head with a crucifix...






Pretty good battle..









Need vampire killing equipement...steal from a church of course..



This is the scene where we kind of establish our vampire "rules"...because there's so many damn versions of them. We're old school here though...bats...gotta invite them in...crosses (but only if you have faith...and you have to be holding it) coffins, sunlight...the whole nine yards...





Be back with more pictures next week! Things are moving along!

Everything goes well we should have some footage of this sucker swooping and flying around tommorrow.
I didn't want little wimpy vampire bats...I wanted big nasty suckers that could bite your face off...
