Hi Mate, this story was shot at the flat where my wife and I lived when we first started going out at the end of 2001. I am guessing this was early 2004 as my daughter was born in December 2003 and I recall there's a distorted noise on one of the slo mo shots which is actually the baby making a "goo-gah" noise while being held by my wife nearby when I was shooting.
Basically, I'd bought a camera and we were a long way from anywhere and I'd not done any Damon Dark since Maddox. So I made a couple of attempts to do something while I was there. This was the second attempt, I think. I think this was what I did when I first got my own PC and WMM, so it was my first chance to edit.
There was no YouTube, so I just kind of shot bits and pieces over a period of weeks or months.
It all came together after a while, but when I first uploaded it, I had no music to put to it, (which it needed) and there were a few bits that were a bit long or slow. So, it was no real problem, this time, to trim a few bits, add the music and present it better than it looked before.
Your comments about Damon's character are interesting: I guess that indicates that what I did recently with "UFO hunter?" was getting Damon Dark back to his "roots". He was originally intended to be like "Straker" in the "UFO" ep "Timelash." If you've evet seen UFO, Commander Straker was a great character, but he spent many episodes in a control room giving orders and the jets and space ships then went off and shot down the aliens. But in "Timelash", everyone's frozen in time, so he has to get out and there and become "Hands on" and fight an alien zombie and shoot down a UFO with a hand-held rocket launcher. Plus there was an ambiguous element...he's telling the story from inside the medical ward, to Dr.Jackson, a psychiatrist.
So, Damon Dark was "modelled" upon Straker in his "hands on" and "ambiguous" mode from "Timelash". He fights aliens and their human zombies in a very down and dirty hands-on manner, and there's an element of "is this nightmare true or is he delusional?"
Anyway, I'm *really* glad you liked this one, it really cheers my day to hear its gone down well, as this version has been a long, long time in coming for me!
