Death of a BARL

There is a creature in the film known as a BARL. It is used to hunt the GARUM. I always thought that the BARL would be CG and it looks like 90% of it will be...however, when it is killed by the GARUM, it was going to be the skull of a pig and the jaw of a cow. I spoke with a student who had access through a relative to get us the bones for the shot...however, upon getting the "bones" I discovered that they were still covered in A FAIR AMOUNT OF FLESH! INCLUDING THE EYES OF THE PIG!!! We are still going to shoot the scene where the GARUM tosses the 'flesh and bones' but it is going to be a little more gory than we had thought it would be...ewww

Make sure you keep that stuff in the freezer until it's needed. We had some sheeps organs in the last movie and they sat in a bag for 4 days before shooting. When we opened them for the scene the smell nearly killed us. Stinkypoo.

Oh yeah, we have them down stairs wrapped up in plastic in the big freezer. The butcher offered us some legs and some guts if we needed them...

Dare I ask what the sheep organs were for?

The organs were stunt parts for a dead character during an autopsy. We filmed those scenes really quickly.

Hi Allen. Thanks for the very lovely (and flattering!) comment on my blog. The work you're doing is super-inspiring, and I can only imagine what the development artwork looks like! Thanks so much, again! --Lauren Reeser
