Hello everyone! It's been a little while since the last update, but I wanted to fill you in a bit on what's been happening (yes, we are still busily working away at making L5 a reality).
We've held casting sessions and callbacks, and have a large portion of the Argo's crew selected, but we'll need to hold additional casting sessions for a few more people.
Our shooting date is now the second week of December, and we've been very busy doing location scouting and production design, pretty much around the clock. We'll be posting some video blogs of our adventures very soon!
Challenger Learning Center in Woodstock IL looks like a promising location for the Argo interior shots, in this triptic you can see the original location on the left, what set dressing will do to it in the middle, and lighting on the left:

I will also be posting some progress on the spacesuits, which have proven to be a very unique challenge for us, but we've finally found a construction method that is both cost effective, structurally sound, and will produce a lovely result. I'll be posting Space Suit Construction Update #5 soon!
In between Skype production meetings, we've also been storyboarding, a lot!
More updates to come!
