EDIT: since the topic is a few pages long and over a year old now, here is a little recap for those who don't have the time to read it all:

RAPACES, Birds Of Prey began as an almost improvised western short film (budget: $200 ; shooting time: 1 day). It's been release in April 2010 and is available on any of these links now:

After mostly positive feedback and seeing that we had an oportunity to make somethung REALLY good out of it, we then decided to turn it into a 12 episode webseries, done much more professionaly, and adding as much production value as we could.

And now, here is webisode 1: "Hangman"

ORIGINAL POST:

Ok here is something that could interest some of you guys.

I shot a brand new little western last saterday in the forest of Fontainebleau, in France. If someone (CJ?) thinks that the location doesn't look like the US, let's say the movie takes place in Ontario, where I have seen such landscapes  Smiley

The story is simple: one guy, lying on the ground, wounded. 3 other guys trying to reach him to steal him a specific item. Everyone wants the item for oneself. Not a single word is uttered during the whole movie, which is intended to last 5 to 10 minutes.

Here is a picture of one of the characters. A teaser is in progress and will be available shortly.

I was hoping the European Commission for Mental Health finally decided to make it illegal for you to touch the camera. Ah, well...

That first character looks interesting.  Cool

Just for curiosity sakes Noodles I'm sure France has gravel/sand pits, if you can find a deep one that's been inactive for a while they get a pretty desolate look to them. And if you are in the bottom  the surrounding escarpments look like buttes and they will mask the bucolic green countryside.  Afro

I'm iffy on the bracelets.
They look modern, but other than that it's cool.

They tried. But they were short of one horse.

Yep, there is something to do with that... However, as you said to me the other day, the best looking place in France for a western is the Alpes.

Yeah, the bracelets are a bit modern... We tried to make them look older in the movie, but I'm still not convinced :S

Corbucci shot his Johny Haliday western there (Gli Specialiste) so you're in good company.

Teaser here:

http://www.vimeo.com/5588908

(please watch it in HD)

The music is, of course, far too famous to be used in the movie. We'll have an original score for the finished movie, but this is going to take monthes. So, for the teaser, let's use Ennio.

Jokes aside, it looks interesting Afro

But what I was saying to FC in that other topic: look for an old quarry, if you have a little inspiration you could do wonders with it. It doesn't have to be big, and I'm thinking Southern France would be best.

It looks great, and the scenery does look fine in that sequence.

I know the girl looks like a cannibal in that teaser... but she's not. She's a strange kind of woman anyway.
