A mini making of video!
This is the result of about a week and a half of filming and a week more of editing. This movie I feel not only represents my fursona, Leonard-but I also hope this is a good nod to the furry fandom.
The furry fandom is filled with art and music-but not many movies. I think anthro animals in our world would make a GREAT first step to make a cool movie, and I know there’s a lot more that you could do with it.
Obviously, this movie takes the path of a crime thriller-but you could also make a comedy or drama or action…anything really. I of course want to thank my parents and brother for helping me with this movie. This movie also features: Eric the Red-playing an awesome drug dealer, Katherine Martin as Emily..a human who gets abducted, which this was her first time acting in front of camera, which I don’t believe. She was awesome. My grandmother, star of my other horror movie “Coven Nextdoor” played Washburn-Leonard’s boss and is always fun to work with. I hope all furries enjoy this movie, this one is to the furry fandom. 🙂
So folks, I have completed a LOT of the filming for this movie-I’m getting two other actors involved to finish it all off (I am shooting out of order, so it’s not as quick at it sounds!)
Tonight, I went out to film with my parents-the script called for a field. I had to stumble around this filed with a fursuit head on-trying not to bump into roots and thorns, and trying to look cool. It was hard! LOL! Worth it though-I was a little worried that someone might think I’m a big bear and shoot me if they saw me from a distance-but I would be a bear wearing a leather jacket, sooo maybe they’d just run?
Anyway, stumbling around a field in full costume was not hard really-what WAS hard was the editing of this scene. Unlike a lot of directors, I do not edit an entire movie at once-I edit in sections. Scenes get there own project name, I get to spend as many hours as I want on a scene to make it as good as I think it should be. The scene we filmed tonight was a gun fight-in the editing room, it consisted of mostly sound effects being off, muzzle flashes not being bright enough, music skipping-yeah….but actually, the scene came out great, I just hate how time consuming it is to go through frame-by-frame and add muzzle flashes and sound effects and have to be so precise…but hey, makes for an engrossing movie!
Seriously, I’m PSYCHED for this movie-and I hope furries enjoy it as well! More filming to be done next week! 🙂
