I thought Iíd start the year off with a smile. In the spirit of last monthís ďFatal Deviation XĒ, which was made 10 years ago, this is what I was doing almost 20 years ago, complete with 80ís mullet. Scary how quickly time flies.
It was filmed using a VHS camcorder and edited with 2 VHS recorders. Those were the days!!! I have tweaked the edit where I could. Unfortunately I couldnít find the source material so it was impossible to remove the hideous colour banding from the 80ís edit points. As such I embraced it in the edit and degraded the picture a little bit more for a Grindhouse feel. I also added special fx (a pipedream then), sound fx, and some music, keeping the self composed synth score I used then.
The plot: Blade Runner meets The Terminator. Someone is a replicant. But who?
I hope you enjoy it. It shows how wonderful it is to have these things many years later. In fact, so much time has passed, I feel I can watch it objectively, as if itís someone else. Although the quality isnít the best, if you can look past the deficiencies, I think itís a real hoot.
