Another Christmas has come and passed and with it brought the 2008 LRR Christmas Special. We started seriously talking about this video on the ferry trip back from the Child’s Play Charity Dinner earlier this month. After a short brainstorming session we had an idea for a song that we wanted to write and preform. Obviously that didn’t happen, instead you were all graced with “War of Christmas” which was a creation totally from the brain of Graham. The origianl scripts ending was far different from what we ended up shooting but we all agreed this was the stronger ending.
We began shooting this video Friday night with most of the scene of the Army guys doing there thing and Nate and Kates Scenes with the Christmas Scene. Saturday was to be “get as many shots of people being attacked by orniments as possible” day. We met up at the usual time and me and Graham headed off to get the killer orniments. We ended up going to Zellers and picking up the wreath, the wrapping paper, the tree orniments, Santa Suit and the bows. Orginally instead of the iflattable Santa’s we were hoping for fairly standard Christmas lawn orniments. After being let down by the selection at Zellers we headed over to Home Depot and stumbled upon those Blow-up Santas for 15.00 bucks each. Me and Graham looked at each other and both agreed that 3 would be plenty. We headed back to the Orbiting Underground Moon Base to meet up with the other guys and we got shooting. We did the wrapping paper attack and bow attack at the Moon, the Santa Suit attack and the wreath attack was shot just outside the Moonbase. We headed to Matts parents house to shoot the Christmas orniment attack, and the inflatable Santa attack. Everything went pretty damn well, minus the fact that it was at the height of the cold snap we had here in Victoria.
Pictures will be up later today or tomorrow (not sure where the SD card with the picture went to)
