Filming Part II: July update!
On Friday, we finished filming the second half of Hero Punk. We still need to film the final "Enclave" scenes, but we are very close to having Hero Punk shot. This is a huge achievement for all of us and we could not have done it without your support.
We are gathering the final information from backers and will start delivering rewards (like shirts, twitter mentions, voice messages from Simon (the holographic avatar) and more. Storyboards are nearly complete and we plan to release those, then the book, as soon as possible.
A few (hopefully) fun or interesting facts:
We shot on two Blackmagic Cinema Cameras, at 2.5k resolution (Cinema DNG raw).
We also shot on two GoPro cameras, with one mounted to the ceiling in the studio.
We did two days of wire-work, a few stunts and much more.
The total drive space for Hero Punk Part II is over 10 Terabytes (spread across four 3TB hard drives).
Our total budget for part two was a little over $37,500. Our total budget for the full-length feature is $100k.
Kickstarter helped us with $26,500 of this, after Amazon, Credit Card and Kickstarter fees.
We are going into post production this week (August 1, 2013).
