Blender Monsters

Today I'm thinking about CG creatures. Should there be a CG creature in Earthkiller? It could be a big PITA. It could also make the movie much more sellable. We could buy a dinosaur for Blender and then hot-rod it a bit.

I really really really do not want to be getting us into rotoscoping trouble. I don't want to have to cut live-action people out so that the CG monster can appear behind them. I went to a great deal of trouble to keep that from happening on Day 2 and still we're roto-ing out some people.

So that part of the whole experience will have to be well-thought-out.

Windows is actually better now as Windows 7. Certainly it's less annoying than Vista is/was. And they finally got the "documents" folder naming such that it isn't infantile ("My Documents" Get it? Hee hee! Squee!) and is fairly usable -- Libraries is divided into "Documents", "Pictures", "Music", "Movies". Whew.

Remember kids -- titles and ideas aren't subject to copyright! The Asylum, getting better press recently, knows!

Don't use CGI monsters. Stick me in some scary costume, and only shoot quick tight shots. Based on Alien Uprising, I think it would look pretty sweet.

The trick there is the words "some scary costume". Where is this costume? How does it not look like someone in a monster suit?
