Hello,

I am sharing here the first Scene of a movie I am working on. In this Scene, Baltar finds the main character, Gordon Blake at a bar in some unimportant desolate planet, and he pitches him the idea of leaving retirement to go hunt and kill an evil man, Kaiser Novae. Gordon Blake is a retired Bounty Hunter who has turned to gambling to spend the last days of his life. What Gordon doesn't know is that Baltar has a powerful secret motivation for Gordon to join his quest. It turns out that according to Baltar, Kaiser has enslaved a young girl Gordon had freed before while he was a Bounty Hunter. When Gordon finds this out, he is enraged and decides to join Baltar's group to go hunt and kill the man who has taken this girl as a slave. 

The idea behind this movie is to blend a Western movie  idea with Scifi and Fantasy elements to create an space adventure with a western theme. 
While working on this project I learned how difficult it is to have two characters talk to each other and make it "realistic" enough for the scene. 
This movie is going to be about 45-50 minutes. Obviously, a lot of work but a lot of fun. You almost have to be insane to try a project like this. 
Comments are always welcomed. If you think it is good or it sucks, express your opinions, we all have them. Can't promise I will do anything regarding feedback or suggestions because it is possible that I will disagree with them. But, its always great to hear them. 

Notes: format is 1920x800, I convert the movie to 24 frames per second. Talking characters have 3 point lighting separately on each one, the bar is from the "Cantina Bar' Star Wars "A New Hope" Episode IV, there are no LUTS applied but I apply my own set of color correction, brightness, contrast, etc... together on Sony Vegas, I have temp music but will be creating music for the release.First episode was created on Moviestorm and can be found here

Great job. Love the tones you created. Also, how did you accomplish the scene where the main character recalls himself walking with the woman? Desaturate?

Seriously good work Pedrosura - wasn't expecting to watch the whole 10mins but got suckied in. Some sood voice acting here and nice writing - Baltar is a compelling character. Good luck with the production - admirably ambitious. What are your plans for the film when it is finished?

Thank u HowardV
I am really glad that you liked it, I was concerned about having a 10 minute scene with dialogue without people tuning out. I am almost relived that you said you were sucked in.
Also, I am not a a professional writer or actor, so its great that you liked it. I did the voices for this episode but for future episodes I will bring others onboard.

I have completed 45 minutes of the movie so far and I have about 5 more minutes to go. I have about 50% of the sound effects and about 30 % of the music.

But guess what, if people cant watch the first 10
minutes they won’t watch the next 10... so I am very happy u said that..
Thank you for the feedback..
