Reactions of an audience can be hard to gauge. The reaction I received however was above and beyond expectation. I admit I wasn’t expecting the laughs I got positive or negative reaction, but better to accept the positivity than question the laughing. Not the first time I got more laughs than I anticipated, but it is something that will probably be integrated into the project. The group pretty early seemed adamant of striking a balanced tone with humor and some seriousness.

And not to overly positive or assuming, but Zack seems like the perfect person to have gotten the role of production manager. He seems to be taking the role seriously and started taking notes as I was during our initial meeting.

Below is what I wrote into the groups google doc. I’m not going to make a habit of copying and pasting the doc, as that would be lazy, but as I write new things into the doc I will share them in consecutive blog posts. The google doc is essentially a more organized version of the notes I took and the progress the group has made in decisions. All info  given subject to change which I will update you on in newer posts. Certain things are removed due to them already being in my previous blog posts.

The Name Debate (Give your opinion if you can.):




So, I didn’t really chime in much while we debated the name. This is mostly because I have mixed feelings on both and think we might need to put more thought into it.


Fists of Vengeance: To me, it sounds too generic, even though I think it reflects the story.


Falling Pheonix: While I like this name more, I feel it does to an extent ruin the ending. Calling this Falling Pheonix I worry sets up the viewer to anticipate exactly where the the downfall of the hero occurs at the end.


Available costume examples:


Lucha Masks


Custom Pants from a Cancelled Project
