Perpectives: Ty Hungerford on Acting in ‘Frame 137’

»Posted by on Apr 14, 2013 in Mainframe, Perspectives | 0 comments

  When Judd approached me about his new project and playing the character of Big T I was like, “sweet brother what am I getting myself into?” He said, “well you’ll have to be a Scarred up, Hard Ass, Texan Drug Dealer.” If that’s not a gift from the gods for any guy let alone someone who is constantly fighting his Texan roots to work in Australia then I don’t know what is. What the Frame 137 team put together was simply out of this world. With little to no money the whole team needs a big pat on the back for the wicked outcome. I very much look forward to what...

Perspectives: Verity Fiction on Designing & Applying Makeup for Frame 137

»Posted by on Jan 21, 2013 in Mainframe, Perspectives | 0 comments

Frame 137: The Makeup James O’Barr is one of my all time favorite writers and artists, so I was actually familiar with Dark Horse presents #61 and the Frame 137 story before Judd had proposed adapting it, top that off with the fact I utterly adore science fiction, in particular films and books set in a Dystopian future and it’s easy to see why I had no hesitation in agreeing to work on it. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. You see Judd wanted it to be as true to the world as possible, he wanted the makeups to feel real and justified as well as cool. This meant on top of the main key character makeups to design, there was around 50 extras, all of them needing to fit specific character types that belonged in Jonny’s world. I immediately...

Perspectives: Choreographing the Action Sequences for Frame 137

»Posted by on Dec 24, 2012 in Mainframe, Perspectives | 0 comments

It was a pleasure to receive a phone call from Judd saying he is back in the country to make a short film and that he would like me to choreograph the fight scenes. I am a martial arts fanatic who loves the film industry, not only that but I love James O’Barr’s creations believing they are great stories with amazing potential for film as ‘The Crow’ has proven. Rightio, let’s invent some fight scenes. I say invent because it would be nice to have something that’s never been seen before. First of all let’s make them of a calibre that you would expect to see in a dark futuristic world like the one James O’Barr created in the comic strip Frame 137. Second thing to consider is that we are using a ten-year-old as the star. Can’t remember seeing...

Perspectives: Sam Hawley on the Production Design of Frame 137

For sure, it wasn’t the first time Judd had come to me with such an absurd idea. “See this?” He said to me, handing over six comic-book pages of black ink splashed across paper. “We need to do this…” I took the pages and began ruffling through. Then he reached into his pocket with his other hand and produced a piece of shoestring, a pile of dirt, and the cheat codes to Mortal Kombat and finished his sentence, “With this.” “We’ll probably need more dirt.” That’s not even a joke. Because none of us had any money we had to rely on skill. When that hallucination quickly faded we realised the only thing that would get us over the line would be a LOT of hard yakka. To add to it, this was our goal: Stay...

Perspectives: Liz Tomkins on Producing Frame 137

»Posted by on Dec 12, 2012 in Mainframe, Perspectives | 0 comments

Judd and I had just finished working together on a small independent feature film called Sleeper when he first mentioned Frame 137. After our experience pulling the feature together, Frame 137 seemed like a fairly small commitment – I remember saying ‘it’s only a short’, and I remember Judd laughing at me. Appropriately, so it seems, because the film in the end had a cast and crew of nearly 100, and involved set design, wardrobe, stunts, VFX and make up worthy of a full-length feature film. A huge contributor to the film is DOP Andrew Railton, I’m fairly sure he didn’t sleep at all while we were shooting, and he gave the cinematography every part of his heart and soul, which is more than obvious on-screen. My favourite...
