    Wow that's certainly the best episode so far! Good amount of detail and a nice story.
    Also cool effects!
    A lot of scenes have a yellowy hue to them. Did you use any colour grading or is that from the lights?
    The cats are watching us...

    Agree with Grapes - - the best so far. Must be frustrating that it takes so long but i bet the result seems all the sweeter for it. Well done.

    Hi, Grapes, and Tim

    Thank you for your valued comments, it's always nice to see what you think of the latest Zey works

    There are some stories to tell on this one: When lockdown hit us all, i couldn't get any material's, to make the film with, so i hunted around my home, and used material's, from lefts overs from past episode's,
    and ended up making 80 miniture props, then months where the film work came to a stand still.

    I spent long exhausting days and nights, sometimes form 7pm in the evening until 9am the next morning.

    When making the sets, i did them outside, and had lots of passers by, take interest in what i was doing, and made some new friends.

    On the frustrating side, it was a panic, most of the time, i thought the film was not going to be finished, it was getting very hard,
    re-editing lots of scenes, re-filming, and technically re-editing lots.

    I think the lighting mixed with the fact that i have a lot of tan/creme/yellow/ochre in the sets?

    A piece in the newspaper from April, then another soon as being released.

    Great job - one aspect you’ve clearly mastered is cutaways - I only use them to fix problems in the A roll but you’ve used them to give added atmosphere to the production
