Division 18: The Movie!?

Saturday, February 21st, 2009

Wellll, technically, it’s more of a video. And it isn’t an adaptation of the comic or anything featuring Snake, Lou or any other D18 characters. It’s a no-budget video short set in River City and featuring some brand new UNCP mascot mooks. Rehearsal and costume fittings took place over VD weekend (that’s the romantic holiday, not the itchy aftermath), and the one day shoot will take place on Sunday, Feb 22, at the Connecting Bar in The Bronx, NY.


Check out Joey ‘Roo, Cell-Fiona, and the Banana Man trying on their costumes at last week’s rehearsal.

 Let’s hope my buddies at Level 92 Films can pull this off, or we’ll be breaking more than a leg.

D18 video shoot: Day 1 (and only)

Sunday, February 22nd, 2009

Thanks again to Level 92 Films for taking the time and pulling together the resources to shoot this Division 18 promotional video while we sharpen our pencils and work on new material for volume 2 of the actual D18 comic. Joey the Roo ain’t got nuthin on Jimmy the Snake, but you’ll see the final video before you see any new comic pages — so embrace it.

And while you wait for that, here are some photos from the set:

We shot at The Connecting Bar on the Yonkers/Bronx border in NY. There’s nothing quite like spending a Sunday afternoon with your 16-month-old baby in a bar. Pass the beer nuts!

SPOILER: My script called for a lot more baby business than we could actually pull off, what with the baby being an actual untrained baby, with wants and needs and diapers. Luckily, we had a (stuffed) body double to use whenever Alexa threw a fit.

River City is a rough town, so you can count on plenty of fisticuffs. Here, Director Dean – a former Olympic hopeful in the bitchslapathon and 12th degree red belt in gymkata — offers up some Matrix-esque fight choreography. 

It was a fun but long day for everyone (especially long for Alexa, who threw a fit every time we tried to film her, and Dean, who had to reshoot everything around Alexa’s fits). Hopefully, the finished product will pay off.
