stabbing someone in the back of the head is fine?

Kids have to learn sometime, Steve.

Hah.

Well, so far we've corrupted 102,000 viewers so far (not sure what the demographic is though)

Not bad for a week - passed Strontium Dog a few days back, helps that it's on a popular channel, though hardly any comic news sites mentioned it. (Minty had loads of reports, Strontium Dog much less, and Rogue even fewer)

Also strangely, no communication from Rebellion after they were sent it, two retweets from Rogue Trooper Redux and Rebellion's twitter account, but not from 2000AD.

Weird, it's dropped 12K views just now.

Don't think I ever had anything like those 'readjustments' going on with Minty.

Maybe they all got stabbed in back of the skull.

The quartz zone looks a lot like a limestone quarry. Wouldn’t granite have been more geologically appropriate?

Put your own money into your film and you can shoot wherever you like...

The Behind the scenes video was nice to see. It's hard to watch that and not think this is a film made by fans having a great time making their childhood dreams come true for a moment.

It's easy to be critical about fan films if you are holding them up against narrative storytelling but it's also easy to forget that fan films are an ode to something people love and not a cinematic calling card.

That was great seeing how they put it all together. A whole load of work went into this Rogue movie, and you have to appreciate the dedication needed to realise it. I want more!

I wasn't being entirely serious. I'll refrain from geology jokes in future.

I'm just getting a little tetchy of 'why' comments these days, or suggestions of 'you should have done this' multiple comments on a facebook page on a behind the scenes pic before makeup of 'why isn't he blue' like people don't read the post. After a while you just think fuck it, and give terse replies.

And I didn't even shoot this one.

I did consider making the surface reflective but it would have been far too much extra work and they may have well shot in a car park somewhere by the time I'd cut and pasted everything.

Slate would have been visually interesting, but from a safety POV it's sharp - I sliced my hand open on a piece when I took a tumble filming Minty.
