    Dark Souls Mini-Series Updates!

    Post by ParallelDigital on Thu Jul 05, 2012 5:28 am

    Praise the Sun Sorry for the late updates guys! Kinda forgot about posting here since we've been posting everywhere else (Reddit, Facebook, Tumblr, etc), and its hard to keep track anymore! We ended up raising the 1200 dollars we asked for, and then some!
    Here is a picture of our lead in 80% of his final gear.

    Here is a link to our [embarrassing] vlog where we talk about our progress! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nqas_H8tc1k
    And here is our Facebook page if you'd like to stay updated! http://www.facebook.com/ParallelDigital
    We are now working on ordering our last bits of armor, as well as storyboarding some amazing scenes! We cannot wait to start filming! Thank you all for your support!

    Impressive armor! Some scarf or piece of cloth over the neck would do a finishing touch happy

    Oh we will! We are very hard at work to make this as authentic as possible! This was just us suiting up our lead! Thanks for the interest, and we'll keep you guys posted!

    BTW, We just uploaded some new photos of our latest scouting adventure on our facebook!

    Might I suggest a little something like a flair around the throat area? It's very accurate armor, something I am actually very happy to see. This definitely looks like a suit a knight would actually use, and could be mobile in. But the neck looks just a bit bare, so maybe some sort of cloth you guys could design? It could have some form of heraldry. That said though, it might increase the chance of the actor overheating, because I've had to wear some costumes like that before and out in forest areas with action scenes, that is pretty brutal. Has he had any issues breathing? Or is it actually fairly good? Are you guys going to film during the summer for it, or fall? Because fall might be a bit better for whoever is in that, things are getting pretty hot now and I'd hate for him to have issues being dizzy during filming. I know you guys do work in film so you probably already know everything I've said, but as always just in case I thought I'd bring them up. I'm still looking forwards to this, and I do hope you guys can get some recognition for it.

    Thanks Tolvo! We appreciate your interest, and concern. We will be taking a TON of precautionary measures while filming! Since we've all worn the armor just to get in the heads of our actors, we kinda know what they will be going through! Haha, also this suit is about 80 percent done. We still need to get our surcoat made, as well as the neck wrap. As soon as we have a final product, we will let you guys know! Praise the Sun

    That's great news. I was curious, what sort of accents are your actors going to be using? I assume more of an astoran, as that's often a bit reserved with some semblance of disparity held within every word. Or are you going to take the more silent route, similar to the player's character?

    Certain characters in our project are loosely based on characters in Dark Souls, so you will hear accents that resemble what you hear in game. That being said, we will try to keep it very lonely and let the environments speak the most.

    Will you be giving the full armor away after the filming is done? >_> I REALLY want the surcoat that's on the Elite set. Dibs on it!

    It's hard to be patient about this! I hope it's as fun/awesome as it seems like it will be.

    Well Cloud they've mentioned maybe doing more with it, as well they're funding it mostly themselves so I'd imagine a free give away isn't all that easy of a thing to manage.

    I was curious if you guys were going to be using any special effects. I really dislike the use of CG, but I do understand with some of the creatures and the magic present in the game it's going to be pretty hard to not have something which will require a computer to replicate it.

    Well, give away in the sense that highest donation gets it. I've been waiting on my next pay check to put most of it in, in the hopes of getting atleast a dvd. Like they did with the helmet (CURSE YOU, whoever claimed it!)

    Well I guess that would depend on how much it costs for them to get more armor, I mean if a character gets killed off it could be reasonable for a donation, but if they need the armor set for further work, well that could cause consistency issues as well they'd have to go through the trouble of getting the other one.

    Aye, and it would be worse if it's something like a handmade item. >_< doesn't stop me from wishing for that damn coat though!

    I'll still pay for a dvd, or blu-ray if they do blu-ray. I want this to be amazing.

    Yeah, plus they might have some sentimental attaches to something they've used in the film if they really end up enjoying it. But you never know, when it's all done they might wish to share it more so with fans. I of course would love to wear that armor personally haha.

    I was a bit curious about what sort of shield you guys were going to use with the armor you posted here. I assume a kite or heater shield, or are you going for more of a small shield route?

    We're really glad you guys are excited!
    The shield we decided to go with was the cheapest one we could find that sort of felt like it could fit in Dark Souls which is
    Don't worry, it'll be beat to *expletive deleted* by shoot time!
    We may have a stealthy enemy character that may have a buckler though.... Cant say too much after that!

    We appreciate the thoughts, but please don't start talking donations publicly! We got a warning not too long ago when this happened. We are here to just raise interest in the project!
    (Though PM's are welcome! Praise the Sun )
    We may have giveaways though depending on what we can part with, and what is given. Honestly, we haven't thought about it too much!

    Ah, a heraldic shield, you guys going to try and get a similar crest sewn into the cloth parts of the armor? What sort of fixture does the shield have, does it directly attach to the arm or is it one that has to be held?

    I wonder what you guys will do for the bosses. By the way, that armor looks GREAT. The shield is nice too.

    Would the forum members think less of me if I said I am more excited for this short series knowing what sort of 'dance moves' are under all that armour now.

    I mean just look at the actor they have in the armour his chest hairs are in exactly the same position and density as the depraved character model. These guys ain't cutting no corners. Praise the Sun

    Haha! I hate to be the one to break it to ya, but Ryan (who, now that you mention it, resembles the deprived) is not our lead! Our lead will be our buddy Ethan, who starred in our short "The Prophet" (Who's face can be seen in the facebook album on our page). http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.208747222581892.41974.196421670481114&type=1
    But who knows, maybe we'll do a deprived spin-off down the road!
