As we mentioned last month, three FXhomers flew out to the Nightcast set in Switzerland during the final days of principal photography. The intrepid trio of Arktic, er-no and Hybrid-Halo are now back in spider-free England and are ready to regale us with tales of their adventures...

My Big Nightcast Diary, by Joby 'er-no' Stephens

We arrived at the airport on Tuesday afternoon and, within seconds of walking through Arrivals, a large, bald Swiss man in a massive leather trenchcoat strode towards us with a huge grin plastered on his face. Yep, this was Marco 'Sollthar' Von Moos alright.

Meeting Marco was a long time coming for me. He was the first person to see my first ever movie and 'The Test' was the reason I joined FXhome. We've been exchanging film clips and he's been sharing his knowledge with me for several years now. Accompanying Marco was Christoph von Hunnius, Nightcast's co-director, who happened to be the spitting image of Deacon Frost from Blade.

Down to business

Thirty minutes later myself, Hybrid and Arktic were at the film's hospital location where we caught our first glimpses of Nightcast himself. Let me be the first to say that the Nightcast costume looks amazing, and looks even more amazing on the HD camera. I found myself ducking and diving behind the HD camera at every opportunity to get a look at the shots Michelle Bauert (camera operator) had set up.

It took quite some time to get over the fact that myself and Hybrid had only just met Arktic and that we were now on the set of Nightcast with the legend that is Sollthar. After having a quick bite to eat on set, Marco talked us through some of the difficulties and challenges he and his team had faced so far, details that will no doubt be covered in future FXhome spotlights or even on the eventual movie DVD.

Sleep is for wimps

Seven hours later I was surprised to find Sollthar walking around his house in just a pair of boxers. Now that was a wake-up call! After recovering, we all travelled to the rebel base location, just under an hour's drive away. It was quite clear by this point that sleep wasn't on the top of Marco's agenda. He told us of how he'd been filming up to eighteen hour days with only a couple of hours sleep here and there. Dedication is the definition for this guy.

Dominic Fistarol (lighting) couldn't make it that day so Marco and Christophe asked me to help with lighting, while Hybrid and Arktic were being painted with blood and dirt to be rebel extras - I was pretty jealous!

Within just a couple of hours Arktic had been in the middle of an explosion and Hybrid was busy firing an M16 alongside the rebel forces. Marco would come to me before each block and talk me through what was about to happen. The heavy grading and fantastic abstract colours that you will see in the final film - that's us guys playing with red, green and blue lights.

FXhomers in a strange land

After the first day, we all wanted to sleep. For several days. But no - Marco was once again striding about in his underwear, demanding we crawl into the car and begin filming straight away.

Another day sped past at the rebel location. I personally began to feel accepted among the Swiss and German crew. It was a huge challenge for all of us to understand people via their body language and movements instead of spoken language.

On the second night we were given the option of going into Zurich to sample the nightlife, or going back to Marco's for some much-needed sleep. Being British, we chose the drinking option. To make us feel more at home we ended up in a pub called 'The Big Ben'. I'm still not quite sure if this was a bit of a joke or whether they were trying to make us feel at home - either way the beer was expensive but oh so good!

Going native

Hybrid, Arktic and myself all planned to wake up early the next day and explore Zurich a bit more. Instead, we woke up at 4pm. A few hours later we were into the night-time shoot, this time with Nightcast performing a series of awesome stunt jumps...which I guess you'll have to wait to see.

Again sleep deprived and tired, we returned to Marco's for a few hours' sleep, but Arktic managed to keep myself and Hybrid awake all night with a series of bizarre, muttered conversations in his sleep. He contemplated the existence of chicken with teeth and even asked when the next version of EffectsLab was coming out - FXhome on the brain? Never.

Blaze of glory

Our final days were upon us. We were pretty excited because we all knew that our characters were going to go out in style. It was stunt time.

Arktic was kicked over backwards and shot in the head, Hybrid got shot clean off the ground and flew through the air and I was engulfed by flames. This is what happens when you go to visit Sollthar.

It's always encouraging to have Marco cry "Nice knowing you Joby!" just before having a balloon of gas explode in front of your face. All I had to do was react at the right time, throw myself a few feet up in the air and backwards against a wall...and die. Easily my best memory of Switzerland - even better than the moment when Arktic waxed my arm with duck-tape (he claims it was an accident).

And that was it for us FXhomers on Nightcast. In little under a week we'd seen the raw emotions and skill of NCC's team. We'd had great talks with Sollthar about everything and anything, Remo Marti (catering/production manager) had taught us what different words mean in different languages and Fabian 'Nightcast' Ramseyer had told us exactly how sweaty it is inside the Nightcast suit.

Nightcast already looks stunning and with Marco Von Moos at the helm, it's sure to be a fantastic movie.

Thanks to Sollthar and No-Control Cinema for set access and gallery photos.

I forget to mention, I had a brilliant time and I hope you guys here at fxhome enjoy the write up!

Was fantastic to meet a couple more people from fxhome and I hope to add to the list of members I've met in the coming year.

Cheers! And good luck to Sollthar on the editing of Nightcast biggrin

Huzzah!

I have to say, the trip was utterly, utterly fantastic. I really can't wait to see exactly how fantastic NightCast turns out!

Again, thanks to Marco, and everyone on the NCC team for being such excellent hosts. We'll have to meet up again someday smile

Great write up, er-no!

Cheers,
Arktic.

Yeah, the time we had out in Switzerland was a very cool mix of things. Firstly meeting Arktic in Person and then meeting Sollthar and the NCC team. Being on the set of NightCast and being able to help out and observe was a really great experience. You can see from some of the photo's of us that we had a good time.

Talking with Sollthar and his team has left me really enthused for film making/special effects. So it'd only be right to say thanks firstly to Sollthar and his family for putting up with us for a whole week, and secondly thanks to FXHome for making the union possible in the first place.

Oh, and Cheers er-no and Arktic for being 2/3rds of the Three Amigos. wink

Nice story. I found it interesting and entertaining. Might you be able to tell us a bit about how Solthar was doing his lighting and audio? I think information like that would be helpful to your readers, myself included. I find those sorts of things challenging and any insight would be appreciated.

Lighting:

From what I can remember - Lighting was accomplished with a various amount (sometimes up to eight) of spotlights ranging from 150W to 500W. Filters were then applied onto each light to match out/grade and tint various shadows and shots in the scene. So basically the scene would be lit as a general guide - and also for safety reasons inside the dark rebel base. Then smaller fill/key lights would be placed in to keylight the areas of action and the characters.

As always, it seemed things were just a tad over light and then Marco can tweak these down in post. I've always learnt that its best to overlight things and then tweak down, because you cannot create light in post without adding horrible gain to the image but you can remove light smile It definetely seemed that NCC were doing something similar to that rule! Myself, Arktic and Hybrid lit a few of the shots in the rebel base with a variety of greens, blues and reds. It looked pretty awesome.

Sound:

Marco said that due to the intense and rather manic shooting schedule location sound would have to be recorded with the camera's microphone and then all dialogue would be re-done in post. Not too much in terms of secrets there then smile He'll redo all the sound in post and with professional sound equipment it'll sound perfect. Something I've learnt myself though, if you want to redub sound - especially location sound. The best place to reshoot the sound dubbing is back at the original location or a similar location. Radio sounds for films are actually done not with post filters, but via radios propped up against microphones. smile

Hope that helps a little bit, ask any more questions if you like wink

Thanks for the brilliant spotlight. Had a good laugh reading through what is already a memory, unfortunately.

I must say I really enjoyed you guys being here, even though I had less time then I would have liked to spend with you. But you were a great help on set and I just generally enjoyed meeting you (and listening to your fun conversations about spiders, bridges and chicken at 4 o clock in the morning) biggrin

I really hope we get the chance of meeting again some day - maybe on someone elses set, who knows. wink


Thanks again from all the NCC Team to fxhome. I hope we won't let you down and will put a movie together that is worth all this. smile



Right, now I'm off to greece to a well deserved holiday. Sun, fun and orange juice... YAY! whistle

Can't wait to see the movie!

Looks great...(I think it might be #1 on the top ten list for a while...lol)

Those pics are cool!

As in every movie you make or are in you HAVE to have fun!

(You can tell when actors don't want to be in a movie by the consisntancy of the acting...)

You guys rock and I hope you come out good in the later days!

Thanks

er-no,

Thanks for the detailed lighting, and audio notes. I found it especially interesting reading what you wrote about the audio.

One more quick question for you, since you generously offered. What sort of cameras are they using? I think Marcos is using the ZR-1 Sony HDV 3 CCD camera, or does he have the FX-1? Are they shooting 60i, or pseudo-24. The stills look very filmic, but maybe he's doing that in post. Either way, thanks again. I'm envious of you guys and your great on-site experience.

As Sollthar has gone on holiday. I'll tell you what I know to be right but won't guess at the stuff I'm unsure of. smile
Nightcast has been shot on a FX-1 camera and the stills your looking at our actual stills from the camera and lighting, with i think a little bit of work done to the white balance to trick it to that beautiful grading. I was pretty amazed at that fact because I'd have guessed it woulda been post-production offering up those colours, when I saw the Michelle and Marco setting that up on the camera. Well... looks fantastic doesn't it biggrin

The audio part of it all really interested me and I wish NCC the best luck to dubbing of all of the audio. It'll be a tough job but I'm sure they'll do it really well! You'll have to wait for Marco to get back to you on the exact specifics of the set up of the camera, I'd take a guess at a standard 25fps, with most conversions etc being done in post biggrin but don't quote me on that.

Hope that helps a bit, if not just ask or wait for Marco's reply in a week or so!

No, but seriously, the stills look great, no doubts NightCast will effectively kick @$$.

funk that. I mean the real deal. 2 tickets to the US from London are 500 dollars (about, and that is the crappiest flight I think. Like, 50% chance of plane going down crappy). Either way, if all my plans for right, it's feasable.

Anyway, I think the reason I love this spotlight so much is because it really shows that FXHomers are coming together. I mean, we always joke about having the FXHome meeting or something like that, but just think about how close to that this is. I think the future holds amazing things for all of us. Except for Arktic. Stupid magician. I like to joke!

As an addendum to er-no's comments, I think the movie stills are graded, to varying degrees, but not final at all. Some of them have had some post done, I believe. We'll have to wait until Sollthar returns for the definitive answer!

Thanks to everyone for your support and kind words!

Before I definately leave off to the beach, here some answers for you:


Light:
What er-no said. smile
We used three sorts of lights, 150W, 500W and 1000W lights. We usually tried to have a 3 point setup of floodlight, mainlight and outline light. And the rest was used to lighten or darken certain areas.
We used colored filters on the lights to give them certain colors, warmth or coldness we wanted.

Camera:
We shot using the Sony HDR-FX1 in normal 50i mode and captured at full 1920x1080 resolution. We did try the implemented 25p Cinemathingy, but it just plain sucks. We got 10 times better results with filming interlaced and then deinterlace in post. We used manual focus and manual white balance for the whole shoot, watched what the camera sees over a small 12'' external monitor.

Sound:
We tried using an external Sony mike, but due to the quick shooting schedule and huge problems on set (airplanes, cars, wind, hall - pretty much everything you can think of that makes a sound recording a nightmare) we decided to leave sound for postproduction.
In post, we'll add every single bit of noise seperately and all actors will be coming back for voice recording and dubbing. So at the moment, we have image only with rough internal camera sound for reference. The rest will have to be added in post.

Post:
Grading is, as tarn has correctly pointed out, not finished. The pictures HAVE been worked on mostly, only to a very small degree yet though. The steps each frame will go through is the following:

- color desaturation
- change of contrast
- new color theme
- soft focus glow effect
- artificial lighting and darkening of certain areas of the frame
- artificial depth of field here and there

And of course, there's loads of rotoscoping work to be done, changing backgrounds, adding something here, taking something away there. But that's all to be done yet.

We want to tweak every shot as good as we can, so we have a film with the highest optical standard we can pull off.



Hope that helps. smile

...most excellent reply, Solthar. Thanks. What sort of budget are you working with? Any financing, investors? All of these tidbits are very fasinating as you are one of our only shooting professionals representing FXHome. I hope someone picks up your film and distributes it on DVD so that we could rent it at places like BlockBuster in the U.S. Good luck.

Would FXHome be a possible reseller of NightCast when it comes out? I'm buying it. biggrin

Once again, you guys do it again. I've been a member here for a long time, but I've honestly never worked up the courage to submit any of my films.

This sort of thing is an inspiration to us all, to see an FXHome member get a film of his on the silver screen. Truly awesome. I'm going to continue hammering away at my website, as well as a potential movie idea. You guys are the best, or as we say in 1337land, t3h ub3r!!!

...*cough*

Yeah. Good luck, Sollthar.

Hi guys,

So finally I write something to FXhomers, because I remained to long silent.

I am Fabian "NightCast" Ramseyer, well and I am one of Sollthars core-team wink

I just wanted to say thank you to our three foreigners.. it was really cool to meet them, although I had not a lot of time to socialize with them sad and when I had the time I was sweating and stinky and they did not want to talk with me smile

as a hint for all filmmakers:

"when there is a really fancy movie and somebody offers you the maincharacter, then make sure it is not a full body latex suit biggrin"


I will try to write more in here when I find the time


Thanks to all FXhomers

Greeting Fabian Ramseyer
