Hello all of TMU!
I'd like to announce that production of my new film, "Under The Shards Of Athena" is underway. Yes, that title's a bit of a mouthful, but the movie has had several other names over the course of writing and pre-production, and this is the one I like best. It may change before the end, but (for now, at least) I think this will be it.
This will be a fantasy movie (I'd say "epic", but that might be overstating it a bit.) Set in a world of swords and sorcery, mythical creatures and weird denizens, plus all the other fun things you'd expect in that genre (and more...) It's a serious film, that is, not a comedy - and no mention of UPM or Nobbits! (Sorry!)
It will tell the tale of our hero, a Barbarian named Karagen, as he treks across the strange world of Marisia (names subject to change!)
Anyway, I have written the script (though I'm toying with an alternate ending) and made up all the main characters in Character Creator. I should mention at this point that this will be my first iClone 6 movie, so I am going to have to come to grips with this new beast as I delve into the nitty gritty aspects of it. Quite different to iClone 5, that's for sure, and yet much the same as well.
Production is just beginning, though I'm experiencing several issues as I try to get the right look and feel to the movie. I have some ideas as to what I want, but getting iClone to do it (and do it well) is proving a challenge. Nevertheless, I shall prevail!
I will need a few voice actors for this (I think the count is six), but I'll delay casting until I'm a bit further into production and have stopped fiddling with the script. When I DO come asking for Voice Actors, I'll post pictures of the characters in question so people will have a better idea of what they might sound like (if that makes sense.)
That's it for now, folks! Updates will come sporadically, depending on how production goes.
