good luck to all in the challenge! i hope i can finish this one this time lol.

my idea is a fictional story based very loosely on historical fact.
its an idea that i have always wanted to do and this topic means i have no excuse!
during the Irish struggle for Independence a small team was set up by Michael Collins called the squad, they were given the nick name the Twelve Apostles. They were formed to counter British intelligence who where able to easily infiltrate Irish intelligence. Set up to deal with British intelligence agents, plain cloths police and the occasional problematic civil servants.
My story follows one of the squad as he is sent to deal with a troublesome lawyer after he has found information regarding members of the resistance.

again i must state the i by no means agree with this kind of behaviour and that this is purely fictional and only based on what i heard in history class and story's i grew up with over the years.
I'm making it because it is a fascinating part of my history and heritage.
all characters are fictional.

First load of research/reference.
on the lookout for some actors to fill in the parts.
I have got a cameraman and DP involved in the project so it is now a team. i will probably need someone with experience in 3d tracking if anyone knows of anyone interested please PM me.

a lot of this will be real footage of Dublin with cg trams and cars tracked in, so most of the cg in this short will be about bringing Dublin back to how it looked in the 1900's. all of this is quite new to me and will be a learning experience for everyone who gets on board. So far I'm the only modeler involved but i may dish some of it out.

First test of the car in some footage, i never tried to do this kind of work before and am quite happy with the result. I still have a fair amount of work left to do on it and the image in the background is temporary.
