You may or may not be able to gather that I'm a huge Doctor Who Fan. My ex got me into it a few years ago, and I have been preaching the word of Gallifrey for a while now. I've always wanted to do a regeneration effect, as it was always somewhat iconic, yet I never tried until this past weekend.
My younger brother was in town, leaving Emerson College for the summer to fly back to San Francisco with my parents. We definitely needed to do something, because it wasn't every day that we were so close. He had never seen any Doctor Who, so he had only my descriptions to go on. Nonetheless, I dragged him up at around 9am (which might as well have been 5am for a college freshman) to do some filming.
We went to a nearby bowling alley that had a reasonably large parking lot, and started to plan out the shots. In retrospect, there were a few that I would have liked to do, but we didn't have time, and the bowling alley owner was becoming less and less patient. All in all, it was a fun shoot, and didn't take long to do the effects.
It was fun to hang out with my brother a bit before he flew back to San Francisco.
Now, back to my previous project! Still have lots to do before filming again!
