    It is with great sadness that i announce farewell to 2008, what a ****** year it has been for me personally,
    Starting off the new year with my mother passing in early January, and it ends with the passing of my father whom passed away right before Christmas.
    So it wasn't so merry for myself. But along with loss there has been much gain in our production, although we still are in production with the film , allot of our other small projects have been taking off, its been a rocky road with many obstacle, both personally and financially, with the world in recession over the last year, I want to say goodbye to 200i8 and strive for greatness next year.
    Hopefully 2009 will shine a much brighter light on my life. Good luck and Haoulii maka Hiki Hou !(Happy New years in Hawaiian) to all those who have supported me and my production, best of luck and congratulations in the new year!

    Mahalo for the update brahda, been subscribed to this thread, and I know how you feel being strapped for cash.

    Very glad to hear that the show will go on, especially since you put so much into it already, it would be a shame to see it all go to waste.

    Just take it slow so you don't get too deep, and finish it at your pace. I know we may seem impatient, but I know we'll wait. You cant rush perfection

    Aloha.

    So.... If the show's gonna be at the Hawaii fanfilm fest thing.... where's the sequel gonna be? Yes, You are making a sequel. I command it, so let it be done. *waves hand*

    EDIT: Btw, the custom mando is amazing. Make him in the sequel. Or, better yet, have something else... like... his kid sees his head chopped off... by the jedi... and now he hates jedi... yeah... that's original....

    we have something similar with the Mandalorian character, but more of a flip the script kinda twist.
    Sequel, well lets just get past the first one, I kinda of envisioned Seven Jedi like the Kill Bill Series volume 1 and volume 2. The first one is BIG and EPIC and the second one is more personal. Although i do have the sequel in mind, I'd really like to do something original afterwards.

    Heres one of the marauder makeup schemes we have for the whip girl(Cy-la).

    A cross between Pris(Daryl Hannah) from Blade Runner .

    and a Maori facial tattoo(Moko) like the female in back of Nig, in Once Were Warriors

    I am so glad I got in on this thread brahda, you make some really good stuff.

    Just looking at your image of the characters above, I see that you are using VERY high quality recording equipment, what kind of camera's are you using to get such awesome depth of field?

    Got another trailer we can see? I loved the first one, cant wait to see more.

    Big mahalo's for doin this.

    Only the top image is one of ours, the two below that are from Blade Runner and Once Were Warriors, where i got inspiration from.
    Were Using Canon XL2's with the Red Rock Micro 35mm adapter for that awesome depth of field shots.
