    As far as I know, all the casting was done a month or so ago. But I suppose things could come up and they might be able to use another extra. Filmworks was taking care of the casting in Halifax so I suppose it wouldn't hurt to contact them:

    Either way, if you happen to see or hear anything interesting, don't hesitate to let us know here.

    Ascendant Pictures did a minor update to their coming soon page here.

    Nothing really new as far as info but they did put up a new pic which looks like a concept painting of the funeral pyre scene:

    http://www.boyrobot.com/ .... Ryan Meinerding - Concept artist: Ninth Ray Studios

    Though they may or may not have been made for or actually used for the final movie here are a few interesting character concepts found on Ryan Meinerding’s site. It’s hard to tell for sure whether these predate the movie on not but I imagine anything he drew while at Ninth Ray would be similar. It very well could be that multiple sets of concepts in various styles were made so they could pick an appropriate one while ones like these were actually not picked. But right now there’s no way to tell. These were originally labeled “Vikings” and “Kids” for example. (Click on Images for larger versions):

    Yep I was cancelled last Thursday night too. But I am going out again tonight and again Thursday through Saturday. Can't miss me - I am the 6'6" Viking, one of Gunnar's men and I will definitely be a wigger (I'm bald - half choice, half genetics).

    Should be a blast!

    That's really neat. If I were on the east coast instead of on the west, I would have definitely tried out too. If you have any pictures or any details that you are legally allowed to share feel free to post them here.

    On that note I now have a few more pictures of some of the male extras (maybe you're even in one of them!) I'd apologize for the crappy resolution but I didn't have anything to do with taking them. They're ok for cell phone pictures I suppose.

    Another blogger to report on... with a semi-humourous post. Also, he has some pictures and this time we scored one of Caviezel. You can see his costume under his parka.

    Here's a couple more links for you guys:

    First up are some websites associated with Bill Perkins, an artist / Freelancer associated with Ninth Ray studios that also worked on concept art.

    http://www.highstreetstudio.com/
    http://www.billperkinsstudio.com/


    Next we have the web site of Electropolis Motion Picture Studios.
    http://www.electropolis-studios.com/

    It is one of the main soundstages in Halifax that Outlander will be filmed in. I imagin mostly interiors and maybe some greenscreen will be done there... Maybe some spaceship interiors? Notable shows shot there include Lexx.
    Some of the features of the larger stage one at Electropolis (that also houses 3 other smaller stages) include:
    Green Screen, 20' x 13' pit, 25 Ton Overhead Heavy Lift Bridge Crane at 60', 14' Drive Through Doors, Floodable, Catwalks 2 sides, Producers Gallery.


    Some scenes will also be shot at the soundstages in the Via Rail building in downtown Halifax but I haven't come across much info on the facilities there.

    Another odd link for you today: http://www.blueriderpictures.com/index.html

    Apparently they are also financing Outlander... Here's their page for the movie that happend to also have a low res piece of concept art as well as the piece on Ascendants page: http://www.blueriderpictures.com/projects/outlander.htm

    [​IMG]

    Hmmmmm? I wonder if that Outlander logo with the Runes under it will be the official one? Looks like this piece is called "The Village".

    First up is an odd myspace page here. In his words he's "a sci-fi fan and budding paparazzi who has used his 'powers of disguise' to gain access to the set of the new sci-fi epic 'Outlander'". Some of his glowing admiration makes me wonder how much of an outsider he really is, but it's all pretty interesting all the same.




    This other stuff was posted to another blog a week ago or so but the pictures are from some time back. Of course they had to build the viking boat somewhere, and once it was done it had to make it's way to the water somehow. Note that some of the detail pieces were put on after. Some of the pictures seem to indicate that the carving and such for the heads was done where they constructed the viking village in Nova Scotia... Click on the photos for the larger version

    A local paper has a neat article online about the Viking Movie Outlander. They visited the set and spoke with executive producer Don Carmody, who seems to do alot of the PR work. I guess chauffering visiting press around while they are on set is part of his job description. 2000 extras sounds high but maybe that number means local workers all together.

    I'm also attaching a few more pictures of Outlander's viking settlement. I found these pictures of the village elsewhere.

    Blogger Jim Dorey apparently also spent time on the set and sent this message to a fellow blogger:

    Hey all

    I spent a night as a "raider" on outlander, doing allot of mock combat. There were a bunch of people there taking pictures and I'm betting they made it online somewhere. Has anyone seen any of those pics. I'd sure like to see that one of me in my armoror fighting with ron perlman!

    anyway...

    cheers!

    It Seems That filming in "Herot Village" is complete (as of Thursday or Friday) and the production is moving indoors to the sets on the soundstages at Metropolis studios in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

    Today I bring you a blog that atempts to be different by being written in a humourous style. It follows the on set exploits of a fictional Character named Harvey who it seems is an amalgam of things that really happen in the shooting process, so sometimes it's a little hard to follow what is really happening. There's some good pictures but either these are left overs from a better collection or this guy doesn't take great pictures. However, the composition is interesting on a number of them, whether or not we can tell much about what's going on.

    A great video has landed over at space (the canadian equvalent to the US Sci-fi channel, with the exception that they don't really produce any of their own series).

    http://www.spacecast.com/wvx/2006/12/hs_a061205.wvx

    Aparently more indepth coverage is planned for this weekend. Are they going to have it online? I don't know but is there anyone who can have their PVR ready?
