Falcyyr production photos 22 December, 2012

It was a COLD day outside (at least it was cold for the outfits we were wearing for today’s shoot!). The first time we went out we found that the camera battery didn’t charge so we had to go back and charge it. By the time we got back out to film the temperature (which was already chilly) had dropped at least 10 degrees, the sun all but disappeared entirely and the wind was up. It was COLD! We were hoping it would at least snow for the shot (the weather report said it was supposed to) but no such luck. So today’s filming session was brief. Time to get the Valkyries some winter training gear!

The cold made Ahura Z jump into one of his last-life modes as a Mongol and instantly he became comfortable in the cold!

Falcyyr production photos from Saturday, 15 December 2012

Today we resumed filming after moving to our new location (we had to take a couple of weeks to move and get acclimated to our new place). We had the Valkyries with us today and filmed a scene involving a delicious spread of food. By the time we got everything set up and finally got to filming everyone was ready to eat it!

Falcyyr production photos from Saturday, 3 November 2012

We’ve been busy working on Valkyrie armor the past week or so (but it’s not ready yet so you won’t see it for awhile!) and today did some more filming with the five main Valkyries in their training outfits. Even though it was warm for November it is still November and chilly to be outdoors without sleeves, but the physical training exercises kept us from getting too cold! In addition to filming for a training montage the Valkyries were also put through their paces with a repetitive punch/kick sequence, some running and carrying a tree back and forth across the hill. Here are some photos from the day (click on each image to see it larger):

Thank you so much to Tammy Hodgkins McDonald for her donation to our film, we really appreciate it!

Falcyyr production photos, 13-20 October 2012

We did some filming with the Valkyries these past two Saturdays. On the 13th 40% of our Valkyries were ill and couldn’t film (that would be two Valkyries!) so we did a couple of filler shots with the three remaining. On the 20th we had all five together and were able to film part of a chicken-chasing scene for the film. And thank you so much to Loria Holdren for her generous donation to our Falcyyr fundraiser! (see below for more information on how you can contribute to this beautiful film) Here are some shots (click on each image to see it larger)…

Falcyyr production, September 12-15

Well, it’s been an interesting couple of weeks, sorry I haven’t been keeping up with posting on our webpage (but I do update our Facebook page regularly, so if you’re on Facebook give us a ‘like’!).

A couple of weeks ago (September 12-15) we started working with our newest cast member, Courtney Fitz for the first time and were being accompanied most of the week by filmmakers Andrea Maio and Ellyn Church who were creating a documentary on Falcyyr director Ahura Z. Diliiza. It was an interesting time to say the least! We got some good work done though and had a lot of fun.

On Friday we drove out to Dover, NH for an emergency visit to Leah, one of the horses in Falcyyr who was being prepped for her second bout of emergency surgery for a dangerous intestinal impaction (as Ahura Z is also a healer, Leah’s owner asked if he could come out and see if he could do anything for her. He did his thing and she is home now recovering nicely).

On Friday night we stayed up late completing costumes for Saturday’s early-morning shoot to the tune of an average cast/crew sleep time of 3 hours! But we got some great footage all while being filmed for a documentary at the same time. We were more than ready for our day off on Sunday.

Here’s some photos from that week (click each image to enlarge):
