for all you watchmen fans, here is the latest journal with the guy i worked for, chris gilman, who designed the suit for dr. manhattan, and interview with billy crudup (dr. manhattan), and D.J.

watchmen journal - 7

four of the LED light suits were made in addition to one prototype. they were controlled by remote which also acted as a rheostat to dim and brighten the intensity of the light.

after seeing "300" tonight i was skimming through the IMDB looking at past credits for some of the crew. i really liked the soundtrack. hence i decided to see what tyler bates has been involved with.

lo and behold, in preproduction is "the watchmen"! i can't believe it! first of all, alan moore has never been happy with any film treatments of his work. i am sure that he has no say and DC is behind it.

but, damn! "the watchmen"! if you have never read the graphic novel it is one of the absolute must reads.

oh geez. as i read through the info, damn... john cassady, adam hughes, zack snyder, and of course, alan moore and dave gibbons are involved.

i am so excited i can't stand it!
