So’s you folks in Atlanta are aware, Lobsterdance Productions is putting on a benefit concert at The Mammal Gallery at the end of the month to raise funds for Elliot’s forever-upcoming film, MOTH. (Except it’s really happening this time and it’s gonna be so awesome. Just you guys wait.
The poster, by the by, was painted by yours truly. Somehow, they managed to sweet-talk me into painting this for them even though illustration stresses me the hell out. Pretty pleased with how it turned out though. They wanted something kind of pulpy so I drew from stuff like the poster for The Land that Time Forgot, Frank R. Paul illustrations, and old Mens’ Adventure Magazine illustrations.
This poster has absolutely nothing to do with Elliot’s script, by the by. MOTH is a Pan’s Labyrinth-style fantasy/horror film with no giant monsters to speak of. That said, I’d love to do something featuring the MOTH-erfucker one day in the future.
Check out a higher-res, textless version of the poster on my deviantArt page AND COME TO THE CONCERT OR SO HELP ME—
Interesting thing about the new Godzilla movie. The trailer says that the nuclear tests in the pacific in the 1950s were done by the US to try and kill Godzilla. So I wondered—what was the most powerful of these devices.
Turns out, the most powerful was one of the first one of these detonated…
I’m sure it was intentional. Also, that’s far from the largest bomb. Tsar Bomba was 57 megatons, the largest/most powerful nuclear weapon ever detonated. The more you know.
It was originally planned to be ONE HUNDRED MEGATONS, which was so big that the Goddamned Soviets took a step back and said, “You know, this is maybe not such a good idea,” and scale it down to the fifty-odd megatons it wound up being. Even then, they had to paint the plane that carried it with a special, heat-resistant coating and remove as much unnecessary weight as possible to speed up their getaway and the pilots were STILL not guaranteed survival once the bomb detonated.
God, I love that story.
Here’s a set of screenshots from the second half of Alizarin’s principle photography, which finally concluded this past Sunday. All of my gratitude to the many wonderful people who made this adventure possible. Now onto the second unit shoots!
Let me take a moment to acknowledge how terrifying today’s shoot was at times. I’m not going to specify the number of times I put myself in the way of a moving sword to get a cooler shot but suffice to say it’s not a number I’m proud of.
After numerous delays, we were finally able to shoot our much-anticipated swordfight sequences for our Go, Robo! Go! music video! CHECK OUT THESE AWESOME SCREENSHOTS, YO.
