Topic: One More Round

Hey everyone.  So my friend and training partner Erwann Marshall is a filmmaker as well, and his last short was an MMA themed film that won a few festivals.  He and I have wanted to collaborate for a while, and we found the perfect project to do so.

One More Round is a short that takes place in real time in the final round of a fight that is pivotal to the lead character.  Erwann wrote and will be directing, I will be Producing, editing, and choreographing the fight.  MMA is certainly hot right now, and with movies like Warrior comin out, there's going to be plenty of people staking their claim.  What sets our flick apart is that the folks behind the camera have plenty of time on the mat.  Erwann teaches Jiu Jitsu, I have fought professionally, and our lead actor is himself a pro MMA fighter.  Anyway, here's our kickstarter.  Not asking, just sayin'.

Re: One More Round

cheers for the link mate, combining 2 of my favorite things and made by a fighter...  If it comes close to capturing the sensations of being in the ring after a few rounds it'll be a rare project indeed  smile

Sounds intriguing, I like the idea and concept, and the kickstarter vid shows that you're serious about making a quality short, so consider me a backer.

MMA is certainly hot right now. This sounds like a fun project.

While I wish you well, hopefully  finances will allow for some support to you guys.

By the way, love the belt ranking as a way of showing supporters your gratitude. Good idea.

God loves you!

Well we fucking did it.

Thanks to a last minute push, we exceeded our 10000 goal and will head into per production soon.   A surprising number of forum members donated and I can't thank you enough.

Re: One More Round

What sort of VFX?

Re: One More Round

I can mash together some clip-art if that helps?

A bit of blood roto, background darkening, light effects, a design to add the POV of a character who got knocked silly that isn't cliche'd.

Ideally, I'd like a VFX lead who can farm out some simple shots to a bunch of people but keep the design uniform. It's a short film, only 8-10 minutes total I think.

Also, good to see some more movement on this.

Yeah, I'm not sure of what Erwann has or hasn't said, but the DP had quite a bit of a different vision than Erwann had hoped for.

He hadn't said *that*. Wouldn't that conflict have been resolved when looking at the dailies?

Long ass story.  He's happy with what he got, but some choices boxed him in.  Thus, the longer time in the edit to address them.
