We've been doing some modelwork tests ready for when Ashley completes his marathon build task. Also earlier in the year we filmed a few small scenes with Tony against a green screen for some closeups we had missed. We're not sure whether these shots have to be repeated yet - we'll know when David inserts them into the revised edits he's doing this month (November 2008). We'll have to dig out some screen grabs as proof! But then, you want to hear that we've finished filming and are moving on...
We've some modelwork to complete and film and if the weather is good we need to mount some closeup scenes with the emperor (which may be easier outdoors due to the height of the prop and we don't need sound) - also we need to do some closeups of Tony as�The Doctor which won't need much set maybe just a dalek or two.
Here's a few pics from our second time using the corridor sets.
This time we concentrated on the roles of Chaldar, Covellitor, Aturo and Auriga - the Doctor's filming in the corridor sets having been completed. We also constructed two small ante-rooms - the first being the embryo room where Aturo meets up with a production-line dalek (i.e. it has no gun, but a claw instead of a plunger) - and the second a storeroom where Covellitor and Chaldar (pictured below) investigate. Covellitor is looking forward at some equipment, whilst Chaldar is behind.
There's a saying in the Devious team where we say we only do one day's filming a year. If that is so then we've finished for this year and you'll have to wait awhile for any new stuff. Well, to be fair that saying was based on our rather disastrous few years where we really did only the one day. As usual there were reasons, chiefly concerning the fact that we all have real lives and this is just a hobby.
