:: PROJECT APPROACH ::
Apocalypse... When? will be made as a live-action feature. It is an action/fantasy story whose overall feel and look will be a kind of Hellboy meets Pirates of the Carribean. A lot of humor, a lot of action and special effects, with a little bit of a message thrown in for good measure. Films of this nature tend to do well at the box office, as well as in DVD sales worldwide.
:: High Definition ::
“Apocalypse... When?” will be shot on high definition video (HD) which offers superior picture quality and undeniable economy. The viability of HD as a tool for producing feature films has been proven by the likes of “Star Wars Episode Three: Revenge of the Sith”, “Once Upon a Time in Mexico”, “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow”, and “Sin City”. Each of these films was shot using an HD video format and released to theaters around the world.
:: VFX ::
The success of “Apocalypse... When?”, not just financially but as a film, will depend a lot on the execution of the film’s complicated visual effects (VFX).
Visual effects is a global term used to describe effects that cannot be accomplished using standard photographic techniques during principal photography. In other words, those effects that are created during post production.
Most VFX these days are accomplished with the aid of computers, and if you can think it up, it can be done…as long as you know what you are doing, of course.
Our VFX supervisor knows what he is doing. Sean Cunningham has been working in the VFX industry since 1991 and contributed to some of the most dazzling images to ever grace the silver screen. His digital genius will guarantee that the effects in “Apocalypse... When?” will be nothing short of world class.
:: Project Schedule ::
“Apocalypse... When?” will take 12-14 months, including 4 months of pre-production, 2 months for principal photography, and 6-8 months for post production.
