One of our troop - Arthur - who played both Aturo and the infamous "Wiggy" in Devious has just presented us with some newly discovered photos from his archive.
news and news archive from the production
Well I've just got back half an hour ago from the first showing of Devious for years. Not since we put the clips together for the War Games DVD a year ago have we watched any. And in celebration of the release we gave ourselves a deadline to get the existing footage together and watch it. This meant refining the edit, adding credits, adding music guides, adding some new effects adding sounds etc until the whole thing could be watched in an evening - all of this David achieved magnificently. Thanks David.
We thought as we have so many images of our fleet of daleks they really ought to have their own section on the website. That's not to denigrate any of the other props and sets we've used over the years of course - it's just that they tend to get most attention! In fact we'll put up a section soon called TARDIS as we do have quite a few things we can share on our Tardis props too.
We've got the first photo of Alex's new dalek from the 1st of August Worthing Doctor Who event. It has a Devious connection which we thought would be of interest!
Arthur has just sent us another new image here in the images section - see The Doctor and his Twig
Direct from our art department (as if we have one!) - and with full apologies to the designers of PROPER DVD COVERS we have our own joke version of the DVD cover for the War Games DVD. So if you want to protect your original War Games cover from the sun's harmful rays by obscuring it with our own daft little effort then you can download a far-too-hi-res version by clicking on the download link below. It's about 800K - you will need to resize it to fit a DVD case...
Well we have made some progress on things but not as much as we would have liked.... It's all down to us having normal lives you see. Ashley is expecting to change jobs soon - with no idea what he'll be doing (!) whilst David is busy with his company and Stephen is eternally busy with his work. When this period of uncertainty has lifted doubtless our spirits will be flying again!
Now here's something we have been thinking about for a while. It's a sensible way forward for the Devious Project we hope you'll agree.
We have finally got a finished edit we showed to a bunch of friends and they loved it and now we are gearing up for the next stage - post production. If you want to be involved in doing some effects let us know!
We will be dividing up the edit early in the new year and then would look at farming out some effects to people who are interested in helping.
Well we do tend to say something like that each new year. However this year we are more hopeful. Our news item for Dec 14th 2009 has drawn some interest - and we'd still like others to come forward if they (/you!) have anything to offer! We want Devious to look good and for that to happen we need people who are enthusiastic and good at what they can do. People who fancy cgi-ing a spaceship-asteroid-tardis or a flying arrow for example.
Well, we tried our hand at "looping" last night. A simple scene with some lines said between David's character and Ashley's...
Auriga - he's conscious! He must not know what we are doing! We must render him unconscious now!
