Gwen in the forest...at night!



Can't wait to shoot this scene...Ron showed me some software that would enable us to put these little fireflies in the scene. I wanted to have the fireflies because I read that blind fish in caves sometimes glow...there is a connection there somehow...I think! Heck, it's Sci-fi!

Those firefly things look like the sort of thing that Particle Illusion might be able to handle,that's a neat little program for stuff like this.

A very nice picture Allen. I like the look of how you have done those firefly's.

Thanks...as a kid, I always thought that blue fireflies would be cool. Since we're going with lots of blues and green hues in this film I thought the blue fireflies could add to the atmosphere. Just before the Garum shows up behind Gwen, the fireflies will all, simultaneously.

I believe it was P.I. or something hat sounded close to that...

The fireflies give me a oriental feel to the picture. All that is missing in Cherry Blossums falling ;)

So will the scene be really dark and all the light source will just be from the fireflies? Or will there be some moonlighting involved as well?

There will be moon light...it is a scene where the rain has really let up and is more of a fine mist. The moons will be peaking through the clouds...
