Remember The Halo Short?

Well, they now have a  behind the scenes look at how they made the live action short.  It’s always cool at what process they take to create the phenomenal piece.  From taking computer generated models and sculpting them, to using animatronics to create the monsters the end result is what high budget movies are made of.  Well take a gander, there’s some extra stuff you didn’t see the first time around.

Review : Blood The Last Vampire

For those who are anime fan, you might remember one called Blood: The Last Vampire.  That spawned an anime series called Blood+.   A couple years later,  studio heads bought rights to create a live action version of the anime movie of the same name.  Me being an pretty avid anime watcher, I wanted to see how this movie stacked up against it’s cell shaded counterpart.

From what I recall, the movie and anime are pretty close to each other on most of the areas.  I don’t remember the anime having the later parts of the movie though.  I’m not gonna bore about what the movie is about cause you can pretty much tell what its about from the movie title.  One thing for sure, the budget on this movie isn’t very high compared to Hollywood standards.  If you’ve watched other asian flicks though, you’ll be right at home.

For the most part, the cinematography was pretty good.  The only time it didn’t look good was with the monster.  That really didn’t look good to me at all.  The way the monster was attached to the scene looked like something from a direct to video fim.  The Onigen’s (Is that how you spell) clothes were pretty cool.  How it moved around like it had a mind of its own.   As well as the scene it took place in.  The fight scenes was done pretty well.  Of course since it was some of the same people who did Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, wires were used to make the fight more intense.
