Yes, that title accurately describes the week. After a week off, we have contracted yet another nasty bug around here, but we don't let that kind of thing stop us. First off, we had a practice day where we once again focused in on a select few scenes, particularly one where Mike and Gwynmareth meet Iallafan. That scene alone took over an hour, as the subtleties of the non-verbal communication of status, rank, intent, etc. was particularly complex. There are a few other scenes that we can't divulge at this moment because they'd give too much of the plot away.
Really, they hate each other. Honest. *cough*
We also finally cast the test ear in silicone. Let's just say that the parts that worked worked beautifully, other stuff... not so much. However, we successfully cast the prosthetic of an important scar for a lead character. It looks quite good, if I do say so myself. In fact, we were quite happy to discover a simple trick for casting scars in general when we dumped some of the leftover silicone onto clay wound sculpts. the resulting wound "negative" looked remarkably like a scar "positive." With that in mind, we quickly sculpted the scar and voila! One major prosthetic down.
Thus ends the brief chronicle of the week. Until next time!
