Visual Effects Complete
It's been a while since I last wrote a diary entry, so I thought I'd put a new one up. Progress has been slow, but steady, over the last month or two. All the visual effects have been completed, and most of the sound effects are now in place too. The only things left to do are: alien sound effects, explosion sound effects, weird noises for the second and third dream sequences, and the music.
There's not much to say about the effects - Foiled hasn't required anything too clever. The main effect that took all the time was the electronic weapon which Foil Man uses to stun his victims. Each time it's used a stream of blue electrical sparks flow over the person it's used on. It was a case of editing the sequences frame by frame, painstakingly drawing the effect on each picture... fortunately there aren't too many in the film!

There's not much else to say, really. Post-production continues, the end draws ever nearer, and we will get there. I was hanging around outside the London premiere of The Phantom Menace earlier this week and I took some pictures of the stars of the movie as they arrived - you can find them by clicking here. It's given me a few ideas for Foiled's premiere later this year...
