Hello MORAV Team
Welcome to the first official MORAV update since hitting our Kickstarter goal. We are making excellent progress on MORAV: Missions, and I thought you'd like to see how your contributions are being put to good use.
Even though my day job is trying to get in my way I have been working very hard on the scripts for MORAV: Missions, and have also started casting actors. We're tentatively scheduled to shoot in December and January, at my Marin studio and at nearby locations.
Through our screen testing we have four of our seven main MORAV crew male characters cast, and we are currently looking for our female lead. The character is an attractive firecracker embedded-reporter, newly arrived on the MORAV unit scene. If any of you know local actors or actresses who might be interested in auditioning for these roles, please have them e-mail Wendy Rolón here: email@example.com
There's lots of fabrication happening on MORAV as well. We've started dressing props and ordering the many costume elements necessary for the pilot. We've made a host of custom parts including these light weight bearings bearings for the joints on the 1/6 scale miniature MORAV.
New arm armor components for the 1/6 scale miniature of the MORAV
masters of the the fingers and toes to be cast and installed on the 1/6 scale miniature of the MORAV
We are continuing with dressing and moving into the intricate wiring of the MORAV interior set
We're painting airsoft Ak-47s to look real for some Ukrainian soldiers
In other exciting news, I have completed my "Introduction to Professional Model Making" DVD - 2 disc set. Proceeds from the sale of this DVD will go a long way in further helping us with this very ambitious MORAV: Missions project, so pick up your copy and/or please share this link:
