The goal of making I, Creator 2 — Goddess Of The Hunt is to make a 30 minute short to seek funding for a science fiction feature film for the cable TV networks. The cast and crew worked together on spec with this 30 minute production with hopes of getting the feature to follow, I, Creator 3 — The Singularity fully funded where we can all get paid for our work. So, we set forth and shot our film.
We got a lot of useful footage for this production. The rough cut assembly is complete. Now, the rough cut is in full production. A 3D animator, visual Fx / Matt painter, and some cgi people are needed to bring this production to the next level.
The shoot went over budget WAY too much. I am in deep financial trouble. I can only look forward to a tax refund next year to get the money I need to complete the post.
Due to issues with actors, we were not able to have trans-cyborg battles with cyborgs in the film. We are lucky the script had a layered story with layered characters. So, we were able to still put a story together.
As a result of too many issues with the cast, all new faces in future productions will need SAG cards or overseas union cards as actors, as long as the overseas actors cover their own transportation costs. Union actors bring a lot to a production looking to raise their standards to improve every production. They bring a much higher level of professionalism, responsibility, and experience on a whole. We managed to get some of the very best of the non-union actors to work with us to the end of IC2. I recommend the actors of IC2 to anyone. They are amazing to work with. And, they are invited back to work on IC3-The Singularity. The script for IC3 is now in development.
The exception to the new casting requirements is an actor must have had a good relationship with the executive producer or a member of the I, Creator 2 – Goddess of the Hunt cast and worked with them on set before. Bottom line is only reliable people that have proven to be reliable may be considered for roles. Team players who work with others well is a must. Major talent agencies only work with people they work with recommend. And, so shall we from now on. Also, I don’t forget flakes.
We will be shooting pickup footage Spring 2012 to add value to our production. I look forward to working with the cast of I, Creator 2 again. They are great people who are serious about making a great film.
