Interview with Reiki Director Pedro Chaves

Director Pedro Chaves takes the hot seat and tells us all about his new movie Reiki!

Tell me about Reiki the Movie; what’s it about?

Reiki is a low budget action-fantasy feature film from Belgium. It tells the story of Vann and Hansel who awaken in a destroyed factory in the middle of nowhere with no memories of who they are… EXCEPT flashbacks from 400 years ago! During their exploration of the factory they meet Reisha, a girl who’s been running away from a group called “The Order”, witch-hunters that have been hunting witches since the dawn of time. Reisha tells Vann and Hansel that their flashbacks are true, they are memories of their past lives! Now Vann and Hansel must try to figure out who they are, why they awakened in this forgotten place, and survive their fight against the Order whilst protecting Reisha!

Sounds Exciting! Now, (if it’s not too much of a spoiler) why is the film called Reiki? Isn’t that a kind of massage?

Yeah, I heard that Reiki was a kind of Japanese massage; funnily enough when we started production nobody knew and it was just afterwards that some people told us. Actually there are some things alike between the movie Reiki and the Reiki massage (though very small).
Reiki is the name of the sword in the movie. The Reiki sword is a special sword that can cut the astral line of a human being, which means when a person is killed with the Reiki sword they won’t be able to reincarnate anymore,  thus they meet a true and absolute death.
The name of the sword has an hidden meaning, but if I told you it would be a huge spoiler!

Character Sheet style Resume

Resume Character Sheet

This is a Character Sheet style Resume by Sean McNally.  He’s a pretty good artist actually.  You can find page 2 here.  I’m not sure what role-play system it’s based on, if it’s D&D then it’s a different system to the one I play.

If this is the resume just imagine the interview!  I think it would go something like this:

“Mr. McNally?”

Before the man even rose to his feet the interviewer could pin-point him with ease.  He had piggy-eyes, sagging skin and large tusks protruding from his lower jaw.  In one hand he was holding a wacom tablet as if it were a shield, its cable trailing uselessly, and in the other he weilded a .07mm Pacer, its thin tower of lead doing a good impersonation of a filthy hyperdermic.  The interviewer took a step backwards as he lumbered towards her.

“W-won’t you go through to my office please?”

How Goest the WAR?

Thanks to everyone who helped me in the webcomic WAR! by doing things to promote Epic Fail.  As you know I joined the contest two weeks late and was therefore at a disadvantage.  With your help, I not only made up that disadvantage but overtook everyone else in the game.  At the end of the resource gathering phase I was sitting pretty at 4930 crystal points!

The comics have been embroiled in battle for about a week now.  Here is a list of the fallen:

Bitter Tea Studios
Capes N Babes
Clan of The Cats
Diablito Del Ring
Doomed Media
The Glass urchin (whom I took down personally)
Oy
Phineus
Recombobulated
Unconscious Ink
You Me and Steve

I have avoided being a target… until now!  Several sharks in the pool are collectively turning on me.  But I’m not going down without a fight, and if I do I fully intend to take my enemies with me!

That said if I win the WAR! I promise to:

1) Post a picture of myself in a bra & panties (bribery is such an ugly word, I prefer ‘incentive’)
2) Create a celebratory animated video
3) Post a bonus page of Epic Fail related to the WAR!

In the meantime check out this interview with me over at the Soulless Machine. It has pictures and everything!

Friendly Fanart

Amuletts (having stolen some underpants) by Martin (player)

Amuletts, Martin & Clodin by Mike

I have new fanart kindly done for me by my friends to help me in the webcomic war. Okay, it wasn’t spontaneous, I bugged them a bit. It’s great nonetheless.
It’s prompted me to try and get the Fan Art Gallery sorted out. It isn’t quite to my liking yet, but you can see some of the fanart I have done for other webcomics and I will be adding more.

Concerning the interview I talked about in my previous post it was scrapped due to poor sound quality, but we’ll be trying again as soon as we’ve worked out what the issue was.
