Hi All,

Here is an update from Ahren the Producer of Troll Bridge.

So Len, Anthony and Morgan, you may be able to make these dates.

Let me know asap. Currently, the ranks are just about full, first in best dressed.

Sven.

Hi all

Well there is a lot happening on the Troll Bridge front.

Members of the production team met with Kings Horses last weekend and got to see a fine display of lettuce chopping.

Auditions were held a couple of weeks ago and we have finalised the cast.

From the re-enactment groups Damien Noonan, Andrew Stoops and the irrepressible Sven all secured roles.

Congrats to those three and a big thank you to all the re-enactors who auditioned.

Battle chorography is coming along nicely and the technological advances being made in the field of distructo-shields is truly impressive.

Now that the cast has been finalised however we have had to re-assess the planned shoot dates.

The initial dates of the 26 & 27 of April were not suitable so we have pushed the shoot back one month to the 24 & 25 of May.

We will now go through the process of re-confirming these dates with all relevant departments/people and will try to “lock it in” by then end of this month.

Snow Gum will be using this extra time to continue to improve battle planning and logistics, create extra prosthetics for gory death scenes and generally do lots of stuff to make it all look even better.

All the best

Ahren Morris
Producer
Snowgum Films.

Sorry Dean,

Its this thing with actor types, you have to keep them happy or they won't do your film, add in the fact that we are not paying them, we have to keep them doubly happy.

I hope you and everyone else can come, IT is going to be HUGE.

Bye for now,

Sven.

Congratulations for both Lord Noonan and the stoops on landing them selves troll bridge speaking roles.

By the way sven, what is the plan for the shoot weekend with regards to the battle. Is the entire battle choreographed or will it be a free play melee? Will there be people assigned to dieing, or will it be like our current combat hit rules and if so what rule set are we using? Is it all set or is it open for discussion between the clubs?

Hi Sir Perfluous,

The shoot will be divided thusly:

Day 1 - Dialogue shots - Marching in, standing around a LOT.

Day 2 - Battle scenes - Lots of dying and gore.

Combat rules are based on Conference rules.

Most of the combat will be at the display level, fight scenes with actors and horse are completely choregraphed (no hurting the actors or horses).

Very few will not die (figuratively of course) at some stage.

We may use the OTC points system for general battle, to make it more real with the plate element (mailed combatants do outnumber plate combatants by 2:1).

There is a draft Battle/Fight plan and you guys coming to the shoot will get a copy beforehand. The fight plan is not up for open discussion, however, if someone has any safety concerns the issue must only be raised throught their club command structure to me or my 2IC (Johnathon Lyons, Training Officer Vlachernai Branch NVG).

I wanna be impaled. Always wanted to go that way. At the very least I wanna do a "Saving Private Ryan"-like dazedly looking around for my severd arm. That'd be sweet.

Above all I wanna decapitate someone. Who's with me?
