We'd love to do that. Right now we're trying to find a way to ship it to the convention and back to the winner. Right now just shipping TO the con is going to be around $400-$500. I imagine that shipping to a non-local winner would be about the same amount.

If anyone here has access to someone who can get us a great discount at fed-ex or UPS, PLEASE let us know. We can't afford to spend charity money frivolously.

If someone wanted to pay about $1000 to get it there and back out, Chris might just give it to you lol! Might, I said....

Smile Updates for 2009!

Well its been a busy, BUSY time here at the studio. Over New Years, I imported all the High Definition scenes into my TB hard drive, and was thrilled because I haven't seen many of the scenes since we originally shot them. It was a real joy to see them all again in their full High Definition glory!!

Once those were imported, I quickly began putting together a NEW trailer, which I hope to have done soon because... as we all know, we have just so many days before Leapback is on our doorstep! Its taken me three days to figure out the actual leap visual effect, and I hope I nailed it.
*fingers crossed*

Things are looking (and sounding) most excellent here!!

Chris

I've been deep in the jungles of editing and polishing this new trailer, and its given me a great chance to cut my teeth on some required special effects for this show... what I originally thought was a relatively easy effects shot on the classic 'Leap' effect turned into something much more intense.

Here are some samples of my two plates from tonight:





I'm not finished with them just yet, but I've wanted to remain as faithful to the original F/X shots from the series as possible (mostly based on Season 5's leaps). Every element of these shots had to be created from scratch... and that ain't no easy task folks, let me tell ya!! I can't even begin to imagine how difficult it would be in 3D, let alone 2D F/X.

Anyway, just wanted to share the progress!

Thanks!

Chris

Chris, can I just take this moment to commend you and your team, cast, and crew for all the hard work you have done. I see a work that is incredibly polished, full of love and dedication, and camaraderie.

I'm sorry I won't be able to see it at the Convention. The Navy relocated us to the UK this past July and it's not in our budget (plus we are understandably trying to see sites this side of the pond while we are here). I do look forward to being able to see the finished film online though.

Thank you so much for this labor of love!

Wow, this looks like it's gonna be amazing!
Can't wait to see the video version (well, not at the convention, but wherever else you will hopefully share it afterwards)

Thank you everyone. Its ultimately for the fans, and I'm glad all of you guys like it!

I've also started cutting the show together too, so that will be another huge challenge.

Just about done with the trailer!!

Chris

Excellent Chris! And I second what Jennie(McDuck) said. Here's to editing the film.

Smile Brand New Trailer Available

Hi Everyone,

I am pleased to announce that we have a NEW trailer finally available on our website. This BRAND NEW sneak peek features footage shot from our amazing four-month production, along with many of the classic special effects featured on the original TV show.

While being true to the show, I felt that giving the show a 21st century re-boot would give it a more contemporary look. I truly hope you enjoy watching this.

Thanks,

Chris

Wow. I didn't see the trailor (mostly because it wanted me to download some new function), but I'm sure that it is as great and creative as the poster. Keep up the good work!

"ohboy" - you need to get your computer working...

That trailer was FREAKING AWESOME. I watched it three times. The effects are great - story looks great - I can't believe you found someone that looks so much like Diana!

Chris - this is very impressive. We should have charged admission to see this in March! lol just kidding everyone... if you have your tickets, you'll see this Saturday March 28th at 8:30am!

And probably again at some point throughout the weekend.

WOW.

The quality of this looks amazing!

The Control room looks EXACTLY THE SAME! The lighting is perfect. I love that shot of Sam looking out the window and seeing Paris. That not an effect for the sake of it, that is solid, seamless storytelling. That's the vibe I get from the whole trailer.

I am warning you now Chris I will be the guy asking you a million questions after the premiere!

Smile Thank you

Thank you all so much for taking the time to watch this. I really appreciate your time and thoughts... I just hope I do the fanbase good, and provide decent material.

Yes Jassian, I used stock footage for the landscape shot. I'm also using stock for shots of Paris and DC.

Thanks for the compliments too, Brian. But I always look at it and ask myself what I can do to make it better... but I reached a point where I was satisfied with it, and went with it. I will say that this new trailer makes the first one look cheap!

It was a real blessing to have Deborah Pratt's voice in this too. I was soooooooooooo excited to add her voice to the show, and a bit surreal to EQ her voice as I went along... it made me think 'wow, who would have thought I would be doing this say, 18 years ago.' Very cool!!

Thanks again folks. But its all FOR THE FANS!! I'm glad just to be a part of it.

Chris

Man things like this make me wish I didn't have to use a proxy to access the site. Will try to get on when I get home though. I really want to see this.

Is there a direct download link for the new trailer? I'm stuck using the library for internet access, and I can't get to the trailer.

Question

Yes, those credits are VERY unofficial, Steve. Not sure why you posted that, but in order to keep things clear and not to confuse anyone, this was not produced "with" Inverted Staircase Productions or MagicHouse Productions, nor was/is Deborah Pratt an executive consultant. DPB got IMDb credit due to his creation of the characters, yes, but was never involved with this particular production. I know you said they are your credits, but I have to make sure that your posting does not start to confuse the fanbase or anyone else.

The most accurate full credit sheet can be found on the film's poster, or on IMBd, located here.

Thanks!

Chris

I thought I read on your website that those....oh never mind I must be thinking of "A Time For The Heart".
???
Actually I have an even BETTER looking "poster"(on my computer) than the one I posted here or on my board but your's still is FAR better.

No it was the QL project(no pun intended) that I was reading from. I mis- read the part about the Magic House Productions(they provided assistance but they were not officially involved with the QL fan-film. The same holds true for the other production company/group. Inverted Staircase.

Sorry for the confusion and again Chris thank you for the awesome job you and everyone at RACSO did for this magnificent production.

~Steve B.

P.S. A Time For The Heart star Chris Spurgin makes his return as well! And in a time travel film no less!
