We're trying an experiment. Two guys talking about their city at the same table. One guy will be filmed in the USA - the other guy will be filmed in Italy. The idea is to make it appear that they are occupying the same space. Weather it works or not - it will be a lot of fun to attempt. . .

thanks, igor!
hopefully the funny bits won't be our mistakes - and if they are - then I hope they are charming ones:D

Okay - as this will be difficult to pull off zakkos and I are making a quick 20-30 second test to see what issues may arise. So here is a very very rough animatic of the test we will shoot over the next 48 hours.

right click here (http://stephenbodin.com/test%20animatic.mov) and save target.

pretty lousy fast sketching on my part:rolleyes: sorry about that. . .

Hi, I don't see how this is such a experiment.

Are you going to put the same background behind both actors, or keep the different backgrounds and 'glue' them together by letting an annoying fly, fly around the scene.
For example Fly drinks from glass of the left guy to then continue to sit and crap on the bold head of the right guy??

Curious to see what u mean

never do that so it's an experiment:shrug:

no flies for now, sorry. But we can eventually add some.

By now we're doing just a test. Although we want to keep the differencies that add interest. A sort of "the girl on the bridge" final piece only slightly different (I mean, no telepathy and such things)

Hope i answered your questions.:thumbsup:

thought that the motion through changes in environment were interesting. While I didn't believe the dancer was in the same environment/moment - I FELT the dancer was in the same environment/moment. Inspiring stuff.

Well - we still have a lot of shooting - if we make it - it's going to be a really close call with the deadline.

titles test

So you ask for 1 more month and got it from Roberto?

kewl!

Thanks!

I can't wait to see your crossed/city entry! :bounce:

Actually our crossed city entry is under reconstruction. We decided to shift from a physical type of interaction to a more "distant" one. So, probably, you will not see our two characters interact physically. Although with one more available month we are open to other changes!

Stephen did a good thing asking for more time, I also hope that with this extra month someone else will join the challenge (i read something recently ;) )

I'm looking forward to see some life again here!

Hey, Zakkos! (I know this isn't proper forum conduct - I'll delete this post and replace it with more pertinent content soon).

zakkos! I've been out past 4 days - I'll contact you tonight via messenger.
