So I worked on this short film in January, as the thread title implies. I was not allowed to talk about it, until it debuted, which it finally has. It debuted at Comic Con this past Saturday, and got posted to Youtube this past Monday.

Video

Here is a link to a photo of me and the Director shooting blood effects against Green Screen.

Lolgaxe, I think you in particular will enjoy this.

That was pretty badass. They're doing another Punisher movie with the original guy? Or was this just a one-off?

We did this short as a fan film for practically no money. We paid for location permits and food, and that was about it. Pulled in every favor we could to get free equipment, luckily, I had a lot of favors to call in. (I work with the same director making commercials)

Thomas Jane would love to do another Punisher, if it was a good script, but mostly he just wanted to do a good short film because he loves the character.

He was amazing in the role. I hope he gets to.

Here is a photo of (from left to right) Tim Bradstreet, Me, Thomas Jane.

Tim Bradstreet is a comic book artist, and he did all the covers for "Welcome Back, Frank" which is one of my favorite punisher stories ever. Garth Ennis is the man!!

Edit: Forgot the photo:

Yeah, but he also started the "Crossed" franchise. Smiley: mad

But yet, his Punisher work was amongst the best the character had.

Edit: Hope you got some autographs.

Thomas Jane should never wear clothing, ever.
Awesome film!

I have a friend named Steve K who is an electrician, and he throws lots of big parties?

Or you could just recognize me from the picture of me and Hellboy and Usagi?

The actors are all professional actors who signed SAG waivers to do the short, including Thomas Jane and Ron Perlman.

The Director was Phil Joanou, who has directed, among others, U2: Rattle and Hum, State of Grace, Three O'Clock High, and Entropy

The Director of Photography was Masanobu Takayanagi, who had just finished The Grey

The Fight Choreographer was Andy Cheng, who has done some stuff, too

We had some great people who honestly just all wanted to work together on something that was going to be good, and make sure that it WAS good.

We all just jumped in where ever anything needed to be done, it was a real team effort.

We shot on the Canon 5D, which is an amazing camera. We also shot this on the 5D. This, too!

Enough *** kissing, here's the only flaw I saw: That blood was way too cartoony for the look you were going for. I mean, for it to shoot out like that it would require blood pressure at the point of their hearts exploding, and that's assuming it was an artery that was severed in the first place.

Oh, Lolgxe? Blood can squirt over six feet if a major artery is open. Seen it at car accidents as a paramedic.

Very nice!

I'm not particularly fond of the shaky cam effect, and it got a little too much in some of the scenes (in my opinion), but it still wasn't as bad as in some of the blockbuster movies, so whatever.

I like Thomas Jane's acting, but I must admit, I preferred Ray Stevenson's version of the Punisher (the movie was meh). Thomas Jane in this short, though, was an awesome Punisher. Brutal, but efficient. Reminded me more of Punisher: War Zone than The Punisher.

Would like to see more.

P.S. Can't believe the **** bottle didn't break.

Real liquor bottles tend to be fairly strong, actually.

This reminded me of the Mythbusters episode where there tested whether it was better to hit someone with a full beer bottle or empty beer bottle. Obviously full won out, although the empty botle does have the advantage of turning into a makeshift shiv when it finally does break.

The 5DmkII/mkIII is pretty phenomenal and that's coming form someone who shoots Nikon.

Time to start saving up for a Canon C300? Smiley: tongue

Hitting them over the head, sure, but the last one where he throws it and you can hear it bounce off the pavement? Sounded a lot like steel on concrete. Have yet to meet a bottle of liquor that did not break when I dropped it. Don't ask.
