Taarna and a special model for an effects shot, in which I project a light through the openings and move small wires behind it, making the illusion of a window with people moving around behind it.

Impressive,Stingray.. I pray that you become a successful commercial movie director in the future...You're quite young now and still carrying out these tasks yourself?...Are your parents helping you too?...Unbelieveable!!!

Thanks, tsheten8!!

My mother and our landlord do contribute lightly to the project, such as supplying a prop or two, otherwise everthing is done myself. Script, models, sets, costumes, filming, editing, etc.

Will you be making a xenomorph suit, too?

I sure will, though it will be a bit crude. I'm going to use shadows of the dim-lit sets to hide any noticeable mistakes in the costume. Sort of like how the original was hidden as not to appear so 'man-in-a-suit'-like.

I haven't gotten any yet. When I finish the Taarna set I might give my local drama teacher a call. Hopefully she can reccomend some people.

How far are you in the project now? I trust it should be nearly complete by now.

Ha ha! The easter eggs you're throwing into the backround of this movie are hilarious. The Mi-24B-shaped hovercopter co.ckpit is one thing, but the sticky notes took it to the next level. "HESHAM! FIX SECONDARY COOLING FAN!"

OMG, this made my day. I wonder what Hesham would think of this shoutout. aww

Either he would be very offended or deeply honored. 50/50. We'll see when he actually watches the vid.

The actors quit, and the bridge set was scheduled to be taken down three weeks after that happened. No more actors, no more set, no reason to resurrect the project any time soon.

I recycled all of the models into a new movie called Battlewings, with some new models made exclusively for it. I'm still *kind of* making Battlewings, though now I have a sci-fi book in the works. Need some money.
