First 5 Mins of Treasure of Templar's Online!

The 1st five minutes of Indiana Jones and The Treasure of The Templar's is available to download over at the http://www.treasureofthetemplars.com website.

I've seen it and think it's rally quite good. I had the honour of meeting Ken last week on a film shoot unrelated to Indiana Jones and he's put a lot into this film, which can be seen with the amount of effort put into it.

I can't wait to see the final finished product. Can you?

brilliant. just brilliant. the most professional fan movie i've seen yet and the only one to be actually shot on film. if you know him in person (i can't really tell for sure from your post ), would you mind asking him what size of film he uses and what it costs him? in germany, film is pretty expensive when you don't do it commercially, $20 for three minutes Super8.

apart from this, great action and great cuts, looks better than many commercial movies. anyway i think he should sell it when it's done. it looks very expensive and i'm sure people would buy it.

I was lucky enough to see the first part of the movie at the Indygear UK summit and also had the pleasure of meeting Ken there as well.

Ken is a great guy, and the footage that I saw completely blew me away!

Fantastic!

Hey Jay, Unfortunately due to the nature of the film (fan film) it is a non-profit movie and it canot be sold. Which is a shame because it is good. Ken didnt direct this movie although I am sure he had a hand in making it other than writing and starring in it.

I'll ask him what size of film they use for this movie then.

i'd be surprised if it was. a very shallow depth of field, remarkable colors and such a high range of contrast - i seriously don't think you could get this with video, not even with an ND filter and color correction.

This looks very much like a Canon XL1 to me:

yes this looks like an XL1.

hmmmm i find it VERY hard to believe... *if* it is one, this would be the better for me as i don't have to think about film, at least not necessarily until our german movie promotion agencies are willing to offer some money. at the current situation, you almost have to be spielberg to get the honor of getting some money. what's the use behind this? if your movies are successful enough, you don't need promotion to pay them, you've either got enough money or some company would be happy to pay.

just by the way. it makes me angry everytime i read how much money your movies have to bring until they help you...

uhm, for one the screenshots dont look that freakin' amazing. yeah the color is great, but not like a full on film. I'm sure he did use a XL1 or XL1s as shown in the picutures. they do wonderful color reproduction with their 3 CCD setup. Not as good as film, but getting close.

Hello

My first post on the raven. Had some problems getting registration to work but all sorted now.

Thanks for all the kind comments about the film - credit must go Jonathan Lawrence, also a big Indiana Jones fan, who directed it and lent all of his equipment, expertise and enthusiasm - he really made this film happen and look the way it does... and also Paul Denton who built all the sets, got all the re-enactors together and worked tirelessly the entire time. Without these people there would be no film or if there was it would look awful. I owe a huge debt of thanks to these guys and can't wait to catch up with them again int he future.

We did shoot on XL1s and will be using XL2 as well in Scotland - the fact it looks so good is a testament to Jonathan Lawrence's ability.

Indy Smith - well well good to meet you online as well!! Cant wait to see how your own fan film works out and I would be honoured to help with it in any capacity that I can.

Will keep you updated on how things go or catch up with the site at www.treasureofthetemplars.com

All the best!!

Ken

Hiya Ken. Welcome to The Raven.

As you can see, your movie is going down pretty well here.

welcome Indy Ken. Your work looks great and I am sold on investing in a XL2 for any future projects that I do. It looks like it can work wonders. Can't wait to see the finished project. good luck

Pictures:

Here are some pictures (have already been posted on Club Obi Wan):

SCREENGRABS









































PUBLICITY STILLS






BEHIND THE SCENES























More Screengrabs







































































And finally some pics for one of the stunt locations in the film:

Location scouting - here I am testing the depth of the water around the bottom of the waterfall which I jump off - never does any harm to be sure:







And here you can see where I start the jump from:







Extra special thanks to the following COW members who all came to Scotland to create the film:

Ken, it looks fantastic!!! When's the DVD release?

[jokingly] Is it me, or do people in your film seem to spend a lot of time at gunpoint with their hands up? [/jokingly]

I do have one bit of criticism though, it seems like your Indy needs to work on his facial expressions.
