C in the news!
We've been super busy this last week preparing for our shoot in February. The sets & props are in their final planning stages and we are almost ready to start construction.
We never would have made it this far without your help getting the word out about the film. So in honor of that, here's a round-up all the best press we received during and after campaign so far:
A great post-campaign write-up from everybody's favorite tech news source.
This technology blog focused on our techniques behind-the-scenes-- miniatures, materials, lighting & camera tricks, etc.
A design-oriented blog asked us our thoughts on how new camera technology is changing indie sci-fi's reliance on CGI.
This is a fantastic article about the concept & story, it really hits all the points we were going for with the trailer and discusses the ideas in-depth.
We were posted on slashdot, and the spike in traffic broke our website! We were slightly misquoted, and came off as anti-CGI nay-sayers, so a pretty heated discussion followed in the comments. Yikes!
An early feature on one of the top sci-fi blogs.
An enthusiastic plug from the notoriously snarky and intelligent iwatchstuff.com
Twitchfilm was one of our earliest supporters, it's a great source for indie & genre film news. Check 'em out!
