Filming Starts on Target Assassin

Filming on target assassin (my mini movie) starts today. After working for a few years with a made on Highlander fan films i decided i wanted to make a movie from scratch and wing it on the spot. So 1.30pm In chestnut house bootle begins the initial filming in the car park, then the lift ride & the assassins visit.

With my friends brother only being in the city for just over a week we will be filming 1pm till dark on the 23rd, 24th, then the 30th and 31st (as folks can only do weekends)

Four afternoons to wing enough to create a movie...
Though this isn't a challenge, we can shoot odd bits later on, but we wont have all the cast, so its gona be tight lmao. No pens.. no paper.. just 2 cams and some double A's...

Note that the main idea for this movie is a learning curve for not just me video editing but for other people out their wishing to learn how to Score a film. I will be releasing a copy of the movie with no actual music score. It will also be a learning curve about DVD creation as i will be creating a dvd with alternate audio channels, easter eggs and subtitles, I also have plans for a directors commentary.

Weapon Prop (HK MP5)

The MP5 was a battery powered hop-up air-soft that actually only cost me £10. It was first used in our little SG-UK 2 movie and was then later used in a scene from our highlander rogue warrior (where markus sabien takes out the watchers) Sadly the stock fell off it in the end so it needs a litle TLC.

The laser on the MP5 was also used to project the target dots on the head shots for the artwork

Taking the shot for the DVD Box Front was just the blue maglight and the laser sight

But as a director and professional editor i ALWAYS keep my folders separate from those given to me by the cast and crew...
Those people in question should ber that in mind when they mix MY work in with theirs...


Weapon Prop (G-10)

The Beretta 92F used by Deacon was a Cigarette Lighter purchased from Southport Fair back in the late 90's for £10.

This weapon comes into play when Bob Williams shoots Deacons silenced Baretta M93R out of his hand. But first seen when lifted out the boot of Deacons car before he heads into the woods.

Weapon Prop (Baretta M93R)


(c)Wraith and Friends Productions

The Beretta M93R used by Deacon was an Air Soft Plastic 6ml BB Gun purchased from a toy shop in Southport for £5.99.

This had a custom silencer from an AirSoft machine gun, bored out so it would fit snugly over the end of the barrel and not fall off while running.

This prop actually belongs to bob and as of this date is still owned by Wraith and Friends productions.
