Mick McMahon!

Last weekend I attended Thought Bubble, the Leeds comic book convention. I took a long a couple of Judge uniforms for the members of The Galactic Knights costume group to wear along side their superb Batman and Star Wars characters. However my main reason for going was to meet a hero of mine - artist Mick McMahon.

I was also picking up an amazing commission he'd created for me. It was great to collect it in person, so that I could let him know how delighted I am with it. Mick kindly signed a bunch of Prog 147 2000AD's which I've been picking up here and there (147 is the Judge Minty issue).

My plan was to give him the 'Judge McMahon' badge which we had produced as a prop for our film. Unfortunately I forgot it on the Saturday and I was busy being a Stormtrooper on the Sunday, so a friend kindly gave the badge to Mick. Though I did manage to loom in to view in my Imperial ensemble, sadly it's not really designed for chatting.

Here's a great picture of the man himself. Thanks again!

It's a wrap!

August saw Team Minty arrive in Dorset at Portland Sculpture Quarry, to film our last three live action scenes and a couple of pick ups. The weather curse didn't desert us as we were handed the continuity hell of rain followed by sweltering sunshine.

We would like to thank Hannah and Paul at Portland Sculpture and Quarry Trust for allowing us to film in their quarry and also providing accommodation and storage facilities.

The location itself was excellent, unfortunately the Cursed Earth seemed to be a hotspot for ramblers and picnickers, not a Helltrekker in sight. As usual the cast and crew found themselves up against it for time, but somehow we managed to get some great shots!

The project has now entered post production 'stage 1' - rough cut, first draft.
