IndieTalk's Resident Guru
Wow. That's one hell of a good looking suit.
Thanks so much Adam! I am a huge fan of films like Alien, Bladerunner, The Thing, Interstellar, 2001... The list is long. It's hard work to build all of this, but I am confident we can create something cool and unique with all of it.I'm a huge sci-fi fan myself and this is looking really amazing. The props and everything look super well done already.
Using old electronics such as Sennheiser power amps, volt meters, radio consoles, and an old CRTV camera system, we are able to build something akin to a ham operator/MacGyver's best fantasy or worst nightmare.
I'm estimating the final cost to be around the $15000 range. It may end up less than that if the practical effects for the space scenes pan out well. If not, then we may have to doctor up things with more expensive gear.This is a very interesting and informative thread, I'm envious.
How much will the final cost be to make this film?
Daaaaaang! I would have loved to find someone on this forum that was close by.Shame you're so far away - I have rooms full of that kind of stuff that I've been hanging onto in case it might come in useful one day!
But thanks for giving a good reason to keep it a while longer ...
The mess? Yeah, I made that myself!Did you make it yourself, or is it collected over other projects you've worked on?
Haha, I don't think I would ever get the discipline to clean that stuff. That's when you make a pop-up prop shop.I have literally just finished clearing it out, as part of an ongoing exercise in self-discipline. In preparation for a future stage/screen project, I'm gradually sorting, categorising and more accessibly storing all these potential props.
