    Hey everybody!

    The car is 99% finished! All that is left to do is a bit of set dressing - random stuff around the car like parking tickets, coins and stuff..
    Today I'm going on a short trip so this is the last update before filming begins - ON MONDAY! We made it to this point! We plan to film all car interiors in one week.

    Ok, what did we do in the last two days? I finished designing all paper props we will need and we went to the printing office. First - scifi money :



    You never know when you gonna need some money! We printed some other paper props that are important for the story. This here are cigarette packs. The film is called Slice of life too.



    It would be a shame not to put some more familiar props in the film too.. Here's one you might know:



    Here's a photo of finished cigarette pack, they will be quite prominent throughout the movie.



    As I said, the car is finished, I just screwed all the components together so it wouldn't fall apart during filming. And we finally turned all the monitors on:



    Some footage on the monitors should also be familiar to you guys. I didn't have original files, so I recreated everything in After Effects as close as I could to the references.
    Here's another photo with better lighting:



    That's it!
    As I said, on Monday we start filming! I will update you as much as I can during the process.

    I'm excited!!!
    BYEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Oh baby, oh baby!

    I love future money

    Monitors in the car look great, as do the replica graphics.

    Well, it doesn't look amateurish at all (production wise) Screens are the top, and attention to details (mag covers/cig packs) are a must and you're doing very well on all fronts
    Eager to see the rest for sure!!

    Will you be altering the steering wheel? Maybe cut it in half?

    ^THAT^ would definitely lend to the illusion that this is a vehicle that is also an "aircraft".

    YO GUYS!!!
    Thanks again for your compliments!!!

    So Monday came and filming officially begun - even though we didn't actually film anything! Today we brought all equipment we could get to the studio and set it up. It took A LOT of time to set the lighting until we got what we wanted...

    Oh Cameron, I like your idea about the steering wheel, but we probably won't do it.. Mostly because of practical reasons.. For example, there is one part in the script where the driver has to do a wild turn, and having only half of the wheel would make it really difficult.. Also, in our tests he rested his hands on the top of the wheel while driving, and it turned out beautifully framed in the cinemascope format, so we're hanging on to that. Thanks for your suggestion though!!

    Anyway here's a couple of photos. First, two panoramas of our studio:





    Back view and front view. You can see we did not spray the back of the car since we will never film from that side. There is a lot of things happening in the shots: monitors work, we move the lights, buildings..
    Here is a simple rig to make a flickering light:



    It's a slow "ventilator" made from and old servo motor, and some cardboard.. But it really makes the shot come alive...
    At first I thought I will have to film it all against greenscreen, and I'll add the city in post, but today we tried to put miniature buildings behind the car and when it's out of focus it works great! That is also great because it means less work for me, and it's IN CAMERA which is always better.
    We also put the buildings on the dolly and slowly pulled them with string, which makes the illusion that the car moves forward.



    That is actually all I have for today!
    In the next days I'll post some frames that we will film, so you'll finally see the cast and crew.

    Oh, here is one more panorama of the inside of the car. That one is in bigger resolution so you can enjoy all those details!

    That interior shot of the car looks great. I'm very interested to see how your flickering light rig works out.

    In camera special effects (my favorite way of doing SFX!!) Great shots and simple tricks always work. I'm giddy with anticipation

    It looks beautiful. The only thing I'm wondering: Will you block the reflection of the studio in the windscreen when filming the final shots? That is the only thing left in my eyes to make it 100% believeable.

    Really, i'm loving this thread.

    YO!

    How was the first real day of shooting? Well, slow...
    We calculated we should do an average of 10 shots a day, and we will finish in about 6 days. Yesterday we filmed for 14 hours and did 9 shots.. I figure we will become more efficient in the next days - you get the hang of this and you solve problems faster.

    OK, so here are a couple of frames we did. Introducing our leading man - Anton.



    As it normally is in indie productions, he is also our screenwriter, model builder, set designer and cooks coffee sometimes.



    His character is a petty dealer who sucks at his job, and is trying to quit smoking. A problem spoils his daily routine and things complicate.

    Here's a pack-shot of Slice cigarettes on the dashboard..



    Oh, Thorst, don't worry about reflections. When you do a setup for 2-3 hours you worry about that stuff.

    Sorry, I don't have that much time to take pictures since we have a million things to do, but as soon as I catch a moment I will post something for you guys!
    We are off to the studio! Bye!!!

    Love the shot of the cigarettes on the dashboard – reminds me of the opening shots of the consoles on the Nostromo in Alien.
