Car chases, fighting and lasers

I am pleased to say that Fractured Radius’ 48Hours film for 2006 is all done and was handed in on time.

The last time I checked it was called “T.H.A.T. – Three Heroes Against Terror”, which is just a hint of the comedy genius that it contains.

I don’t want to give away too much, but I can reveal that:

  • It features a car driving inside a warehouse.
  • Dylan, James, Ryan and I were drafted in as henchpeople. We wore $7.50 shirts from an army surplus shop. James and Dylan looked like Howard Moon and Bob Fossil from season one of the Mighty Boosh. I looked like a gay pirate. Ryan looked hot, as per usual.
  • I woke up this morning with bruises, probably caused by being beaten up in my small role as an evil hench wench.
  • Somewhere along the line Andy’s eyepatch mysteriously went missing. Fortunately we were shooting sequentially so it could be hilariously written into the script.
  • We shot a lot of it in a disused bed warehouse, with variety of mattresses lying around. So not only could we do cool falling stunts, but we got to lounge around on a $5000 bed that was luxuriously soft and yet supportive.
  • If I get my way, Melanie and I will be credited as laser technicians, because that’s what we did.

Exclusive behind-the-scenes pics can be found here.

You can see the film at the mighty Civic this Tuesday, May 30 at 6pm, so come along and see a bunch of good and/or entertainingly bad short film and remember to vote for Fractured Radius.
