Oh yeah!!! May I never speak a word of “VFX” ever again.

 

Just a reminder, here’s everything we started with. (some were single shots, some were full sequences)

The BIG UPDATE is finally coming. It’s only hours away. I am about to announce the first screening dates for the movie, and it’s grand premiere!

 

Can you guess where the premiere will be? Here’s 3 hints.

1. The hills will give a sign.

2. Pyramids in the sand.

3. Robin Hood

    Congratulations, James!

    (and first haha)

  • June 9, 2014 at 12:41 pm

    By the way, saludos desde México.

  • June 9, 2014 at 12:43 pm

    YEEES!

      Also, when I donated, I didn’t even think that the autographed photo will arrive ever, but it did, and it was so awesome. I’ll keep waiting for the movie to come out, I am so fascinated with what I saw int the trailer. My dad is is a screenwriter and I understand what it takes to make a TV episode, so I somewhat imagine what it take to make a movie. That’s a huge-huge pice of work you’ve managed, and I think that we’ll never understand even after seeing the final film, what it took to make it. You are a hero, no doubd. Keep making your movies, James, and keep being a hero to us.

    Congrats, James!

    And the hints? The first one makes me think Hollywood. Is that right?

    holy piece of cowafucking bullshit, this is amazing!! we were all waiting for the empty board! this is an amazing way of starting a week! 😀 thanks for so much magic!

  • June 9, 2014 at 1:05 pm

    Based on these clues I’d guess Grauman’s Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, CA.

    • June 9, 2014 at 1:17 pm

      Seems legit.

      What do you think the Robin Hood hint means?

      • June 9, 2014 at 1:39 pm

        Robin Hood was the first movie to premiere at the Grauman’s Egyptian Theater I believe

    • Dsimon

      June 9, 2014 at 1:54 pm

      Wow, that’s pretty spot-on I think. Good guess.

  • June 9, 2014 at 1:22 pm

    1. The hills will give a sign.
    2. Pyramids in the sand.
    3. Robin Hood

    Uh, he steals money from Egyptians in hollywood.

    Anyway. Congratulations

    Congrats on getting through all the VFX shots.. i can’t wait to see the film

  • June 9, 2014 at 1:40 pm

    I can’t believe it’s so close to premiering now! Should I be hoping that a screening in Minneapolis or close to Minnesota will happen?

  • Dsimon

    June 9, 2014 at 1:54 pm

    YES ! We will finally get to see the nerd in all it’s glory !

  • June 9, 2014 at 2:34 pm

    1 makes me think of Hollywood…
    2 makes me think of Egypt…
    3 makes me think of England…
    But you said the premiere, so it should be one single place… Of course! If if I draw a triangle on the world map, the center will point the place! Uhm it’s… Ilha das Flores, in the middle of Atlantic Ocean… I should have known!

  • June 9, 2014 at 2:35 pm

    YEEEEEEEEEEAH! 😀
    AWESOME! 😀
    And conglaturation, James, for making it this far! 😀

    Grauman’s Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood

    1. The hills will give a sign (The Hollywood sign)
    2. Pyramids in the sand. (Egypt is in the title)
    3. Robin Hood (had the first ever Hollywood premiere in 1922 in this theatre)

    Now where is my cookie?

    • Hassus

      June 9, 2014 at 3:52 pm

      Hehe 😛

    • June 9, 2014 at 4:09 pm

      Ya I was thinking it was the Grauman’s Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood. I went there once to watch a film print of Princess Mononoke. It was awesome. James if you do premier the movie in LA that will be awesome. I will bring my friends and be there for sure.

  • June 9, 2014 at 4:05 pm

    1. Hollywood, LA County
    2. Egyptian Theatre Landmark Theatre
    3. Dunno

  • June 9, 2014 at 4:29 pm

    I’m thinking either Las Vegas, but it could also point to Jerusalem.

  • Jimmy Reed

    June 9, 2014 at 4:30 pm

    Wow! Congratulations, James! About the hints…..could they have something to do with Iron Maiden? “The Hills will give a sign” could be talking about their song “Run To The Hills”, which mentions Robin Hood in it. As for the second hint, well that could be a reference to the cover art on their “Powerslave” album. Now, as fun as that just was, what does that have to do with movie locations? Unless he’s premiering it in England where the band is from, and Robin Hood. If I could just connect the two together…..

    I thought all the vfx stuff would be done next week, but I am surprised and happy at the same time that is finally over. The movie is nearer.
