Our Film featuring Mindy Marvel has been released! Mindy Marvel: Lost Souls stars a woman, Bella, that fits the bill of just about any supergirl but excels as our redhead superheroine Mindy Marvel. In the story Mindy works to save the lives of homeless people being abducted from her cities streets but finds she might have to save herself from a shadowy group that was ready for her intervention.
This video was going to be three different shorts but worked better as one longer production. At 16 tightly edited minutes it's one of my largest efforts to date. In classic Project SuperWoman style it's light hearted but full of action from car lifts, electromagnetic field emitters, high flying, bent metal, to supergirl superpower fights.
Thank-you as always for all of your support through the years that has made these videos possible.

Mindy Marvel: Lost Souls Trailer:
As you can see from all the green blocks in my screen grab from tonight sound design is going well. Bella makes a great Mindy Marvel! She's a hero of the people. (Blue is regular footage and sound, Pink is VFX, Green is SFX). I saw a comment the other day that my dialogue mixing could be better - I'm working on that in this release - especially since we shot in some locations with a lot of highway noise. The good news is I can promise you're not gonna notice.
I suppose you'll see just how long it really does take to put a video together! My last blog post I mentioned I had finished filming. Now I've finished the Visual FX editing on (tentative title) Mindy Marvel: Lost Souls. What's next? Sound design, titles, and maybe some VFX cleanup on anything I don't like while I'm cleaning up the final edit. How long? No promises just yet.
What I do want to share with you is the first clip of video of Bella!
This is shaping up to be a fun one! When I first did the filming I was hoping to get three videos out of the story line, budget, and filming effort. After doing the rough edit it looked more like there was only a natural break for two videos. However, I'm throwing caution to the wind and I'm going to release what looks like will be about a full 16 minute video with some nice tight (best effort at) cinematic editing.
I owe you an update after teasing more filming a couple weeks ago! Day two of Mindy Marvel filming with Bella and team went well. I'm wrapping up the rough edit but it looks like I've got everything I need other than some B Roll footage. No promises on release date speed but this should be an easier post production process than some of my efforts because we used more practical effects.
The weather is getting cold *fast* so I'm doubtful I'll get to do much more in video but I do have a photo shoot I'm firming up for early October. More details to follow.
I have a mixed bag of news to share. First some good news: I got to film with Bella for a day this past weekend! Now some bad news: I really needed two full days to get all the footage I needed for a coherent story. Worst still: I'll not be able to do that until August! It's my fault - I got script writing happy, was rusty, and it's been long enough since I've filmed that I forgot my time needed per page of script rule of thumb from prior years. Still I'm working on some fun things for you, did have fun filming, and Bella and team are eager to get back to it.
Since this kind of post is nothing without pictures how about a few grabs from the footage we did get!
Consider supporting our efforts to keep filming!

Mindy Marvel: Lost Souls
Mindy has taken a no nonsense but compassionate approach with the homeless souls in her city. However, a shadowy group is preying on street campers by abducting and abusing them. Can Mindy find the people she has been trying to help who are now disappearing? Can she find the people responsible? What if the culprits have more resources than she might expect and are ready for our superheroine to intervene? All these questions are answered in this exciting short story.
This video was going to be three different shorts but worked better as one longer production. At 16 tightly edited minutes it's one of my largest efforts to date. In classic Project SuperWoman style it's light hearted but full of action from car lifts, electro magnetic field emitters, high flying, bent metal,to superpower fights.

Ten years ago today we released our first Mindy Marvel Video! To celebrate the anniversary we're sharing 16 great great images from a photo shoot PSW conducted last week! Mindy Marvel was created by Brad328. I loved the character and was excited to get enthusiastic permission to bring MIndy Marvel to live action a decade ago. Here's to another 10 years!
I hope you agree we've stepped up the quality of our photo shoots! I'm looking forward to editing some of the action shots we got for you. Feel free to download the 16 full resolution photo's with the following link!
