In July 2012 I was on LARP convention where I saw a guy who was looking like Conan from comic books. At the moment I thought - I want to make a short movie with him! His name is Janusz "Pin" Szpiglewski and he is about 6'3" high.
Who am I
My name is Chris Studzinski, I am living in Poland, Europe, I am 35 years old. For a year I have been learning how to operate a camera and recently I am learning how to direct.
I like Conan movies and comics, I red all Howard's books about Conan, but I am not a big big fan of this literature. But my wife is. Conan is her most favorite character and she is our expert of Hyborian Age in project.
Current status of project
I have gathered 80% of crew, about 20 people, including compositor, second camera operator, producer, make-up artists, helicam operator and so on. Everyone works for free.
Currently we are finishing draft of story. About the end of month we plan to finish the script.
The movie is targeted to all fantasy fans, specialy for Conan fans, so it will be published in English. We are Poles and our accents are very slavic. That's why we try to avoid dialogues. We plan to use off-scene voice, to explain the plot and maybe few really short comments easy to post-synchro.
The second guidline is low cost - of course. Most of the crew are LARP players and this way we have access to huge amount of costumes and props.
Last guidline is area where we plan to shoot the movie. It's woody, hilly area where is a lot of castle ruins, caves and beautiful white rock walls.
How you can help
For a non-commercial project most important is motivation to work. For now it would be awesome if you will like our Fan page. The crew would see the growing interest in their work outside the country.
In later stage we will look for off-scene voice and maybe post-sychro voices for Conan and other characters. We are not sure yet what kind of voices we will be looking for.
My first movie
short sword fight, shot in 1,5 hr 2 weeks after buying a camera, we used safe LARP swords, not steel ones
Area where we will shoot the movie
