So i post on this site, x-realms.net and the guys there are really cool. It's a sci-fi movie film fan site with news and boards. Anyways, the boyz there are really cool and have been supportive and excited about this project as I've shared news with them. One guy Mitch just asked me for some details about the process and I thought i'd just repost my answers to him here for you folks! check it out!
Here are some production photos!!

"...My sprained finger has now ballooned into 2 sausage links. Shut your mouth and stop complaining let's go!!!!"
"...This morning my brain wakes up but my body refuses to. I have a temporary lapse of sanity where I decide to not go to set this morning and sleep instead..."
"Fuck the shield"
"...he's 5' 6" and most of my actors are 5' 8". I resolve this by planning to shoot the actors from a high angle pointing downwards and Rob from a low angle shooting upwards..."
