I’ve just uploaded a 10 minute part 1 to YouTube as I thought I might be neglecting all those YouTube subscribers. It’s a slightly updated one to the version on Vimeo. Things are going well. I’ve been working on Raiding all day and reckon it will be ready to launch within a couple of weeks.
Next week I am visiting legendary sculptor Brian Muir. If you’re not familiar with Brian’s work just take a look at his website . Within moments you’ll realise quite how prolific this man is.
Whilst Brian’s work on Raiders was not as involved as with many other films, his impact is clear. The Ark, the Cobras, the Egyptian panelling, the Ark Canyon set. I’ll be asking him a few questions this coming week and hopefully get some more commentary for Raiding!
After the success of Star Wars Begins, I have decided to produce ‘Raiding the Lost Ark’ for release in December 2011. Whilst I will keep the usual ‘Filmumentary’ format, using archival interviews, I will also be interviewing several people involved in the production of Raiders of the Lost Ark. I’ve already recorded and integrated interviews with Wolf Kahler, who starred as Colonel Dietrich and Mark Mangini, Sound Editor. I have also been in contact with the legendary producer Robert Watts who is keen to talk and sculptor Brian Muir, who I hope to speak with this month. By doing these first hand interviews I will be able to get commentary directly targeted to certain scenes, once again giving fans an insight into the making of the film like never before.
A preliminary Part 1 is below for your enjoyment!

Fancy a sneak peak? Here’s part of the Truck Chase sequence from Raiding the Lost Ark. This is a preliminary edit and by no means finished. But it will give you some idea of what to expect.
