Default "Escape Velocity" on Youtube

Yes, here is part one of yet another low-budget epic, "Escape Velocity" (no, the other one). This is about a Woman Army Service Pilot and her adventures during the last weeks of World War II.

Off the shelf 1/48 Monogram B-17G with wiring harnesses added to the engines, lights and a few other details, too. The one the women climb out of is real, of course -- belongs to the EAA.

Not a whole lot of action in this segment, but it sets up what is to come.

Atleast you had shots of the C47/DC3 and a B24 flyby, was the B24 a kit or just good timing, also liked the peas in the ear thing instead of a ' wet willy '

The B-24 and P-47 were also off the shelf 1/48 scale Monogram kits. We had to put part of a hotdog in the kid's ear to get the dog to lick him.

Could have sworn those were peas

I was going to ask about the models as well... I figured, being a 'no budget' film, that you didn't get to hire out real vintage aircraft for those shots!

And here is part 3. More violence in this episode -- plus old cars.

I like how the barkeep kept upping the price.
Also, I think the man playing Claire's dad seems the most 'natural' so far... his acting seems genuine, rather than scripted. Not that the others are terrible, but the dad doesn't seem to be acting, whereas the others are a bit.
Was the bad guy who Claire hit in the eye what's-his-name from The Lethean, the guy who always plays a bad guy?

Yep, same guy from The Lethean. The guy who plays the bartender is also one of the leads in "Damaged," which is still available on YouTube. Lots of alcohol was consumed during the production.

There seems to be a definite pattern to all of your films.

Loved the lighting, loved the camerawork, loved the hats. Very classy.

Kim, the lead, was an active member of Iowa State University Theatre and she, along with Eve Himmelheber (an ISU Theatre faculty member) helped find all the period costumes and hats and stuff. Saved a lot of money.

Thanks for watching!

Sure, leave us hanging with the old "fiddling with the doorknob" scene!

Is it just me, or can no one with a camera resist photographing staircases from an upper floor looking down to the bottom?

Lyndon vaguely reminds me (from certain angles) of actor Victor Garber.

Looks good. The B-24 and P-47 model work was neat BTW as until you mentioned they were models, I would have expected them to be real aircraft as the shots were that quick and subtle.
