Cut Price Avatar
I’m going to post about this Film before I actually upload it to YouTube. I will aim to upload it in the next few days, so check back soon.
This film is a fairly obvious one joke story. An overgrown section of bush and palm trees at Swansea Heads Newcastle, stood in nicely for a distant jungle planet. The Avatar is played by Josh Garraway who used his tallness to great effect. His "I'm suffocating" facial expressions were a treat. Renee Mondy featured as part of the film crew. You'll notice Renee in many of my films - she always does a great job.
Ian Huish as the director rounds out the cast. We had a fun afternoon filming it then Ian applied himself to the special effects turning Josh blue, the burning meteor and the opening credits plus the delicate white floating creatures at the end. Ian certainly is an ace up Crimean Pictures' sleeve. The music is by Mick Rippon who is a very fine musician who has provided both Ian and I on many of our projects.
