Figured I'd post some pics of what's been going down for the past month or so. Next I'll post the first Monster Cops Video Blog.
I'm still in the middle of casting, but below are pics of some of the actors that have for sure been cast.
Brandon White, showing off in one of the new costume pieces.
The Adorable Nicole Nastazzio
Comedian Greg Romeo
Doug Hanks, who is also loaning us the use of his guns as well as gun expertise and a location to fire these guns at. Thank you so much Doug.
Danielle Motley has been cast in the much sought after role of Greenly. Yes Danielle I'm using your headshot, and yes I stole it off your myspace, get over it.
And if you're one of the many actors who were looking to audition for the role of Greenly I'm sorry, but I am still actively looking to fill other female roles and will continue to keep in contact with all of the actors who have been emailing me.
Others cast but not pictured:
more to come.
Secured almost all of the locations. Special thanks to Kelly Emerson for giving us her ranch to shoot at, which has an amazing backwoods area. She also put me in touch with the person who can get us in to shoot at this massive warehouse in downtown Winston.
Kelly's been a real Godsend, she's also contributing some possible props/costumes as well as giving us an in to a Helicopter.
I've been hard at work at creating one of the prop guns for the movie. I felt the Monster Cops needed a specialized weapon, not unlike the Ghostbusters proton pack, or the Plasma Rifle from Aliens. I took my inspiration from Indy Mogul. Everytime I see empty bottles now, I just see gun parts. A full video on how I'm making this will be done later.
Here it is with a final paint job, but still without the final parts and accessories added.
Here's our Special FX guy William Stine working on the Werewolf FX. I'm not going to post too many photos of it just yet, don't want to completely give it away. William you're doing an amazing job.
Still going through casting, still looking at locations, alot is still up in the air, but so much has fallen into place. Can't wait to shoot this one.
