As some of you might remember from a Blendernation post last summer I've been working on a short movie called "Electric Town", a live-action/CG production that will use Blender for all 3D content and special effects and probably most if not all compositing and video editing. Since then, I've made a lot of progress, including some false starts and re-thinks. Ever since then I've been documenting the process on a fairly regular basis (about once a month, but that will surely increase as we get closer to the production itself) on the project blog.
I'm still sort of getting personnel and whatnot organized, so I haven't blogged a lot about that, but I'm definitely excited to say that there are a handful of extremely talented people who are already involved in helping out. I'm really looking forward to what we will be able to create once things get rolling.
The goal at present is to get the primary shooting done in late August or early September. In the meantime there's a lot to do in terms of pre-production. Casting, location scouting, and other planning has really only just begun. At the moment, I'm financing the movie out of my pocket. If it looks like it will go over what I can afford, I'll look into crowd funding, but I won't do this until I already have something significant and impressive to show.
