It’s crunch time, baby!

ImageHey everyone! Rachel here, just wanted to give you an update on whats been going on here at Wombat headquarters. We are really close to finishing the filming process, I think we have like 5 or 6 fairly easy scenes to get through, but after that we’re golden! We’ve still got  some scheduling conflicts to work through- and Mother Nature has been undermining us at every turn (Gahhh!!)- but not to fear my friends, the Wombats will not let you down!

In the past few weeks, everyone has really been stepping it up, the actors are so, so good and its really a treat to watch them work. A few weeks ago, we filmed the lava lair scenes at Mr. O’Malley’s house, where Steph really stepped it up working her art direction magic. We worked a lot on the montage shots this week and making up missed shots- these guys are really too funny. Ross Bubly is one of the funniest guys I know and John Barry is a star! Martin’s sound is perfect as always.

In other news, we’ve been a serious contender for music trivs! Jimmy Martin and myself have really been the ones carrying the team, but never count out the others to contribute a few. Our big contenders seem to be Currant, Avocado, Marionberry and Pineapple- but never fear, friends, Wombat does not go down with out a fight! We are also ordering our tee shirts, what I think they’re going to be orange with Navy blue writing. I am so proud of this crew and how this film is coming out and I can’t wait for you all to see it.

That’s all for me, till the next time a crew member forgets to blog.

Lots of Wombat love, Rachel

Hey there, kiddies!

Big things are happening over here! This week we’ve covered a lot of ground! We’re excited to report that last week we filmed in the Dingo’s Lava Lair! HURRAY! It was also the first time that we have had all six characters on set so that’s pretty awesome! With all this great footage we’ve been editing like crazy! Now over half of the film is done. Of course there are problems that arise with scheduling and weather and stuff but it is nothing that the Wombat crew can’t handle! Unfortunately due to the problems with scheduling we had to recast one of our beloved henchmen. Not to worry though, there are no hard feelings and Frankie Welter is super excited to be part of the Wombat Crew (because I mean..who wouldn’t be…) We’ll be sure to keep you posted with all our new developments!
