Got news from our lead (broken ankle) that he is healing up very well! So, we'll be back to shooting very soon!
Here's a new update on what we've been up to!
Hollow (no make-up, unfinalized)

How did the lead break his ankle?
Thank you so much! That means a LOT to the team, because that is exactly what we set out to do. We agree that most fantasy lately is lacking a reality. Thanks for taking notice, and we appreciate your support!Siegfried. wrote:I'm a martial artist in medieval martial arts and therefore super anal about the correct way to do armour and weapons. And I have to say, you guys have passed that test with flying colours -- much better than most professional efforts. Really looking forward to this, since you guys seem to have a great feel for both the Dark Souls aesthetic and the historical influences that went into it. That kind of understanding is far too rare in fantasy media productions in any medium.
My blessing isn't worth a whole lot, but for whatever value you put on it, you've got it. Keep up the good work, and all the best with that ankle.

Most of the armor was bought from KultofAthena.com/ MedievalCollectables.com, and we used a patina on the pieces to age it. The cloth is custom made, and the leather pieces are things we already had (being the medieval nerds that we are!)BloodBlade22 wrote:Those are some damn sweet costumes! Im lost here though... this is for a fan base movie or something?
Do you have any info for the making of those costumes? Also might be a dumb question but... the knight armor- its metal right...? Where and how did you get the armor and swords?
Edit- Ah facebook page answered it... very cool. After reading through it, would still like to know where you got the armor/swords
Thanks for the compliments! The team appreciates it! As for shooting in the morning, our days usually start at 3-5a.m. Then we have to drive to our locations which could, and usually takes hours. Then we set up, which takes an hour or so, but if there's makeup to be done, there's another 2 hours! haha By the time we actually roll it's too bright. Also, we shoot all day. If we tried to limit it to the early sunrise/sunset lighting, we'd maybe only get a couple takes in and call it a day. Heh, it's something we have to deal with, but we'll do our best to make it the best it can be!Nybbles wrote:looking pretty good so far … i am looking forward to watching this. is there a way to donate or help out with the project?
as an amateur photographer, knowing just enough to get into trouble, i have to say that you guys have found some good locations for filming. might i recommend trying to film in the wee hours of the morning to get that early sunrise lighting. it's the best time of day for photography. nice contrasts and color tones that would suit the environment and frame the subject matter pretty well. it's allot cheaper than expensive filters and lighting equipment, as long as you don't mind being awake that early in the morning. only problem is it doesn't last very long, unfortunately.
here's wishing you luck and good fortune in your endeavors
