More Halloween madness!!!

Here is the posted preview for this year's show... the producer whipped this up just to drum up interest, I suppose.
It's crude and somewhat long... but it really gets some of the frenetic energy of the production across quite well;)

Watching it makes me anxious to get to work on the actual footage so we can post a proper video of the thing for everyone to see complete with full effects and sound!

Just click on the image once it starts to get the fullscreen treatment:

"Here... take a closer look..."

Ok... back on track...

Here's the next page in the upcoming finale sequence. The whole timecode device ended up working nicely... even though it was an absolute pain in the ass to set up at first;)

This page features one of my guilty pleasure story panels... the "Head-butt Carnival". I truly DO feel bad about how much glee I derived from creating that fight sequence. Still, I feel it stands as a fairly effective piece of dramatic combat storytelling... albeit a brutally violent one!

On to the next ridiculous page... wait'll you see the funky lower panel on that one...;)

Some of the players backstage...

Here are a few reference shots of both the Goji-suit and the version of Kong we used for the show... more to come, of course.
This is just the tip of the iceberg;)

Ok... here is a shot of the finished suit... albeit a bit dark and blurry.
It looks best in the video... this was just a pick-up shot we took during the insert sequences we filmed yesterday.
I'll try posting a better image of the costume in the days to come as photos roll in.

I do think that this is the best representation of the suit though... and even this photo is taken after the thing has been abused a bit and been featured in three concurrent shows. We just never got a chance to shoot the damned monstrosity the day it was finished... too much to do... not enough time for such things...

More to come soon...

Mission Accomplished!!!

The 2009 Halloween Show went off as planned with nary a hitch...

The Gojira suit turned out even better than I'd imagined... and soon I will post not only images of the suit itself, but also eventually the filmed show footage! Not everything was perfectly captured and we may need a few pick-up shots... but for the most part, it looks fairly amazing for the materials and budget that we had to work with!

Stay tuned for more soon... and expect new colored pages to follow for "The Pugilist" as well....
