Now that the new year is here, it's time to start up SG/GK again.

What's new:

* last call for extras:
I need a crowd of random extras (~10-15 people ideally) for a single photo. We'll be shooting Sunday, Jan 18 for about 2 hours in the afternoon at the ABL. The photo is a bunch of people in costume sitting around listening to someone tell a story (this will be part of the frame story). If you haven't had a chance to be in the book yet this is it! Let me know if you're interested/available that weekend and I'll let you know the details.
ETA: Nevermind! At our production meeting this week we decided to shoot this scene entirely with robots rather than humans. :)

Here's the barbie doll mock-up of this photo:

* a picture of an axe:
All of the costumes & props have been completed for months at this point, but I wasn't happy with the axe I'd made for the snow scene. When we rescheduled it, I decided to try again. The one I had made earlier didn't look very real; it was spray-painted plywood and slightly too huge to be convincing. The new one is cut out of an old cookie sheet and I gave it a fanciful shape - much cooler than the old one, which was a standard executioner's wedge shape.

Up close you can see that the silver accents are butterflies. I figure even futuristic green men have a sense of whimsy.

* upcoming photoshoot schedule:
For the curious, here's the plan for the next month and a bit (subject to change dependent on weather and models' schedules once I actually get around to checking with everyone)

(I still haven't made up my mind on this one; I'm not sure if I have the time or the energy, but ideally I'd like to redo this scene with more appropriate lighting, i.e., it wasn't the best idea I've ever had to try to make high noon look like midnight on an outdoor set)

I'm excited to get started again, even though it's been a little tough to overcome the inertia I'd built up over the holidays. I'm proud of myself for really making some progress in learning how to goof off and laze around, though, so it's a small price to pay. ;)
