Resonance is a big hit at the London Film and Comic Con

Recently the crew of Resonance were at the London film and Comic Con in Earls Court.
LFCC takes place every summer at Earls Court 2 in London.  It celebrating the best of film, television, comics and sport. It is a huge arena that pulls in vast crowds and has many celebrities that make appearances over the weekend.

This year there were some great names from the sci-fi film world, including William Shatner (Star Trek), Edi Gathegi (Twilight), Sean Young (Blade Runner), Sean Pertwee (Event Horizon), Ben Browder (Farscape) and many more. Mike Tyson was even there making an appearance after his role on 'The Hangover', so it was an event that was very popular for all ages and all types of fans.

My favourite appearance of the weekend had to be the impressive tumbler batmobile from Chris Nolans' latest batman movies. This proved to be a real crowd-pleaser and I was able to take a crowd free snap just before the comic con opened and the tumbler was swamped with people.

This was the first time I had ever been to a Comic convention and it was a really great and unique event. Everyone was in great spirits and there would be unexpected visual feasts at every corner as a comic book hero would suddenly emerge in fully custom made costumes.

Of course, all this was very good and made for a slightly 'break from the norm' weekend, but I was there to film the days events for the new premier release of the eight minute edit of the Resonance pilot.

The day was fairly relaxed and consisted of shooting some time-lapse photography of the set-up stage of the arena. Then filming some interview style pieces to cam with the shows' creators and core team.

There was also a talk with Colin Teague, Aidan Turner, Tom Hill and Tom Dunbar about the creation of Resonance and what the future holds for the on-screen characters...then the long awaited first public viewing of the full eight minute pilot.

The pilot was very well received by the fans and the big question on everyone's lips was when are they going to get to see more, more, more. When fans are dying to see more of a great know you have a great production.

Here is the video we filmed on location at the London Film and Comic Con.
