End of the world

Well it seems the end of the world is coming, the 21 December 2012 to be exact.  It seems the Mayans made their calendar to end at a specific date, now some claim it's the end of the world as we know it, others say the calendar simply resets and starts again.
Now some goverments are taking it a bit too seriously, in France a mountain range is being sealed off, I'm told it will open and UFO's are going to come out at the end of the world.  This raises several questions, if the aliens know why not leave before the end?  Indeed, why are they there at all?  Personally I suspect it's more than a bit unlightly, but I might just be wrong..... No actually I don't think I am!.

Studio shoot

I did a studio shoot for a friend on Saturday, here are a few of the pics.

Battle Recon (film review)

Battle Recon 2012,  (Battle Brigade)  A straight to video film, and you'll see why if you watch it. 
The plot is basically a patrol of soldiers have to carry out a "need to know" mission behind enemy lines.

What have we learned from watching this film.  

A small squad of men carry almost unlimited ammo.
The production company had difficulty getting the right weapons and uniforms for WW2.
Using replica guns and adding a four foot muzzle flash isn't very convincing, especially when the actors have to shake the guns to make fake recoil.
All German offices were leather coats all the time.
When behind enemy lines it's fine to walk on the roads in daylight.
A soldiers idea of camouflage is to "black" up his face like Al Jolson. (and leave his neck white).
Occupied France during WW2 looks more like Buckinghamshire.
Letting Robert Shannon write direct and star in anything is a bloody awful idea.

Waynes rating 3 out of 10, it's so bad it's almost good.
