The Collectibles Comic Book

We've begun work on the assets for The Collectibles season 1.5 comic book.  Originally we were thinking about shooting actors in costume in front of the green screen and then digitally filtering to get our graphical look*, but then we decided it would be more effective in the long run to generate the characters in 3D.  We can then pose them in any hazardous situations we require, and post-process for a graphical look.

Here's a little sneaky at the cover...

And some peeks at the character models in progress...

* Such as the top banner graphic at or the faux comic book page we used in the SIFF trailer...

More Chop Socky Boom!

Episode 3 of Chop Socky Boom is up!  This one is particularly funny for anyone who has ever worked on an indie film set.  And yours truly gets quite a bit of screen time as surly DP Guy.  Also watch for Landon Salyer, Conor Hogan and the Gore Sisters as on-set personnel.  Quite a few Collectibles peeps were on the Chop Socky.  And do you recognize Eric Stevens from Ordinary Angels?  Check it!
