Ok Star Wars bring it on with your massive CG budget!  Who needs it?

 

Finally I'm posting a trailer to one of my movies in the "On Screen" forum, and this movie actually will be "on screen".  Across the USA on Feb 26th.  This trailer will start popping up in cinemas mid Jan I expect.  Pleased to report....not a single CG animal in the entire movie.

 

 

R,

Looks great!  Who needs visual effects when you can dangle your child actor's legs over a real crocodile!

A proper film for a change. I promise I won't rip it off.

Do not say "flog" and "animals" in the same sentence please! :)

Trailer looks really good.  If my son was still young we would see that film for sure.

I'll likely go see it and I'm 34.  Traditional story telling and values are still useful - unless there's a twist ending where all the animals turn into zombies.  Then I'll be right put off.

R,

 

I'll concede all rights to you, just list my name somewhere in the middle of the list where no one is paying attention anyway, perhaps after food services.

R,

If Roger Corman didn't make that picture in about 1965, he should have.

Looks really nice, Richard.  Congrats!  I especially liked the scene where the kids appear to be lit by torches.

I had to adjust my glasses. I thought you'd written 'hit by lorries' (trucks).

Yes all natural torch light only, and fire light.  One thing the Alexa does very very well, is low light photography.  With zero grain, not that grain is "bad" per se.  But non film people now associate it with "low quality."

 

DOP is Stephen Whitehead......again.

Overall, I thought the cinematography looked very nice.  Congrats again and best of luck with the film.
