BEST WISHES FOR 2014!

flexible WILD_ROSE_NEW_YEAR

Our best wishes for 2014!

THANK YOU!

First, for being a loyal fan. We do this for you, first and foremost.

Second, for supporting us through thick and thin and making Heroes of the North something we enjoy doing!

There is not really enough we could do to thank you all, but this upcoming year we plan to give back!

We did not release as much as we wanted this year. We had to reorganize, reconsider, plan differently. But we are now ready for production and we think that the ride will be worth the wait!

So once again, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you! Here's to a better year!

Sincerely,

The Heroes of the North Team

Season 2 begins January 30, 2014

flexible JACKPOT - ROYAL FLUSH

For those who are still wondering - it apparently was not clear at the end of the teaser because of the Grindhouse style titles - the second Season will begin on January 30, 2014 with the Jackpot: Royal Flush episode.

Here is the synopsis:

Jackie Pothier just lost everything. Her pride and joy, her martial arts school, has been foreclosed, thanks to her self-centered gambling boyfriend, William Carter.

Trying to regain what he lost, William plays against Irish mob leader Ray O’Flynn. Things do not go as planned and Ray shows up at Jackie’s to collect his due. Things degenerate quickly and Jackie finds a new strength and a dark side of herself as she tries to survive this night of violence, pain and murder...


This episode will be followed by:

WILD ROSE: TRIAL AND TRIBULATIONS (February 28, 2014)

MANTIS: A WING AND A PRAYER (March 30, 2014)

SASKANA: SEED OF WRATH (April 30, 2014)

INTRODUCING MANTIS

MANTIS

We took the opportunity of the Ottawa Comicon to introduce one of our new villains of Season 2, the deadly Mantis, played by the lovely Marie Ty. Mantis is a Medusa agent that works closely with Hornet. She has ties to the Heroes of the North vigilante known as 8 Ball. In fact, the most astute of the Hotnorthians will have noticed that Marie Ty makes a brief appearance in Episode 3: 8 Ball Origins as Tony Falcon’s wife, Brownwyn, where she meets a gruesome fate at the hands of some random thugs, triggering the events that will lead Tony Falcon to become 8 Ball. You will have to watch closely Season 2 to find out the sinister secret behind it all. On a side note, Mantis stylish costume was designed by Andy Bradshaw and created by Marie-Claude Bourbonnais (Hornet herself!).

The Nathan Fillion Adventure

HOTN_Nathan_Fillion

For Halloween 2012, Canadian actor Nathan Fillion disguised himself as his own version of a World War II Canadian superhero and tweeted several pictures in said costume. A fun yet innocuous gesture that resulted in us getting thousands of emails, tweets, DM and FB messages and comments as a lot of people thought he was doing his version of our Canadian Shield character. We even ended up doing a blog post about it. We seriously doubted he was aware of the show and we were convinced it was totally related but it was fun.

Flash Forward to May 2013 and Heroes of the North is headed to the second Edition of the Ottawa Comicon. And surprise, Nathan Fillion is the guest of honour this year. So we decided to go try to talk to Mr. Fillion and tell him the Halloween anecdote and how it affected us and our site traffic positively and we wante to give him a Canadian Shield comic book at the same time and tell him a little about the show.

When we got to him, at the signing booth, his first reaction was to react at the 8 Ball costume, ask Anderson Bradshaw to step back and using his phone, he flashed a picture or two. We got to tell him the anecdote and a little about the show and gave him a bunch of our comics. He was very enthusiastic and appeared delighted. “I did not know about this!”, he said.

We went back to our booth and the day proceeded briskly. Around 12:30, during lunch hour, as things quieted down, Anderson and Marie Ty decided to do what we call a flyer run: going to different booth and into the crowds, taking pictures and chatting with people and distributing the show’s flyer.

Cliff, one of the organizer of the Comicon, came by and said: “You will never guess who specifically requested to come by your booth!”. We had no idea. He said: “Our guest of honour, Nathan Fillion, asked to come visit you guys. He will be here between 12:40 and 1:15. Don’t tell anybody because we don’t want to create a commotion.”

We of course agreed. And started to run around and chase our missing flock. There was so much people, we did not manage to find them on time. Mr. Fillion arrived with his entourage, but we did not have the actors with us.

“Where is everybody?”, asked Mr. Fillion as he approached. “We are looking for them! We got warned of your visit after they had just left!”. He looked disappointed. “I will try to pass by again later!”, he said before being hustled away. As he disappeared around the corner, 8 Ball and Mantis arrived…

8 Ball and our producer ran in the direction they had disappeared but they lost them in the crowd. And we thought we had missed a great opportunity. But 8 Ball went to the signing area and managed to speak to the management. He came back with the following news: Mr. Fillion would meet us at 3 PM in the VIP area, backstage for a few minutes before his next appearance. Class act!

So about an half hour before three, we braved the crowd and headed down to the other end of the convention centre with everyone in tow, leaving only one man at the booth.

We got there a little faster than we thought, waited a little and then Mr. Fillion walked in, camera in hand, clicking away: “Look at you guys!” He took several pictures with our Heroes, Hornet, 8 Ball and Mantis, both with him and individually and then we took a couple of pictures as a group with him holding the Shield, which had started this whole thing in the first place.

So now the story is wrapped with a neat little bow. We wish to warmly thank Mr. Fillion for his time and generosity as well as everyone that made the encounter possible!

And that concludes our Nathan Fillion adventure!

It has been a long time coming but EPISODE 17: Past and Present, is finally online! It took a while to put together as it was a very long episode and we wanted to distillate it to the most important elements. It is also an important presentation piece for things to come in regards to Medusa Commander, our main villain, his view of the world and his plans. It also sets up important stuff for Season 2. So we wanted to do it right. The episodes stars Michel Brouillette as The Canadian Shied, Constantine Kourtidis as the Medusa Commander, Ross Neil as Baxter, Marie-Claude Bourbonnais as Hortense Netter, Anoutlith Sintaraphone as Steel Tiger ans Anderson Bradshaw, who reprises the role of his 8 Ball character’s grandfather, Falcon.

We sincerely hope you enjoy this latest piece and we look forward to lead you towards the season finale of the first Season of Heroes of the North!

Sincerely,

Additional Shooting - Day 2 - Part One

We promised a shooting blog, so here it is, sort of.

We had an action and dialogues filled shooting day on our Day 2. Lots of actors and crew members were affected by a particularly nasty head flu that is going around at the moment, which made things worse in terms of patience and endurance. But thankfully both the cast and the crew appeared into it and the challenge were reduced somewhat by their collective enthusiasm.

We had a bit of a rough start as we were given the wrong suite number for our shoot - so we spent the best part of an hour chasing actors and crew members all over the hotel where we were shooting. It made us lose precious time on an already pretty packed day, that included an extensive fight sequence, a dozen different decors and setups and almost 20 pages of dialogues… Not to mention appearances by Masquerade, Medusa Commander, Acadia, the Nouveaux Felquistes, Hornet, Steel Tiger, Baxter and two Medusa Agents…

Dave Michaels of Expert Comics
David Michaels from the Expert Comics blog came by for a set visit.

We had the pleasure, for the second day in a row, of having the visit of Dave Michaels, one of the bloggers over at Expert Comics, whom we had invited for a set visit. While almost inhumanly quiet for the most part, David was on the ball when it came to interview and question cast and crew members alike about the show. We look forward to his entertaining chronicles in the next few weeks. David ended up doing a lot more on the show but that is still top secret at the moment.

First scene on the shooting block involved Pia Metni as Masquerade and a complex fight sequence inside a tiny bathroom and bedroom, coordinated by Anderson Bradshaw. It is always a challenge to shoot in tight spots, especially when there are mirrors everywhere like the bathroom we had. It slows things down to a crawl. In tiny spaces, everyone is constantly bumping into the other, uncomfortable and it gets hot in no time. Combine that with being already an hour late in your schedule, you can literally feel your blood pressure rise as things get more and more slowed down by the environment. But we have a good crew that is also used to work with each other, so they went to work right away, trying to take back the time lost and still deliver an impressive fight sequence.

Once the stuntmen and the Fight Choreographer have mapped out the fight based on the location’s potential and what we have available, we bring the actress in to show her the sequence of events and address everyone’s potential concerns, especially those related to safety. We are lucky for this scene because Pia tremendously enjoys the fight sequences and she always approaches them with a kind of boundless enthusiasm that is very contagious.

Stunt Man Marcelo Bezina reviewing the complex coordinated sequence.

The fight involving Masquerade and two Medusa Agents was to be extremely violent and necessitated several stages of make-up in between takes, dead time we used to shoot several other scenes in the various locations that the suite afforded.

One of these scenes involved the assignment of Acadia to the Montreal CDO division. Another prepared the introduction of a pivotal character for Season 2, Colonel Donovan.

Acadia by Ty Templeton

Just in time for the Acadians National Holiday comes Ty Templeton’s vision of our character of Acadia.

We love Ty Templeton over here at HOTN Central. First of all, he is Canadian. Second, he was worked for almost every major comic book company under the sun, Third, he has worked on Batman AND Spider-Man, fourth, he’s a writer and an accomplished artist and teacher, and like most Canadians, he’s funny as all hell, fifth, he has a cartoon blog called
Bun Toons, sixth, he’s bursting with passion for comics as an art form and a story telling medium, seventh, he is one of the creative minds behind Hoverboy, eight, he draws himself as a rabbit, ninth, he took us HOTN folks seriously and with respect from day one, despite our ridiculous means, and tenth, his wife is also a comic book professional who letters and colours comics… Better yet, she even does us the favour of working on some of our books once in a while. So what is not to love? Feast your eyes on his latest Heroes of the North offering.

The wheels are now in motion, leading to a big finale for this arc in EPISODE FIFTEEN: DEATH IS THE NEW BLACK.
Comments

Anne-Marie Losique is Madame Doom!

Madame_Doom_Anne-Marie_Losique
You read that right! Quebec celebrity and media mogul Anne-Marie Losique will portray the borderline insane Madame Doom, a disfigured former fashion model that now controls a major drug cartel supplying the fashion and entertainment industry in the Heroes of the North universe. The first episode she appears in, Episode 13, will be online on July 11th.

We are pretty happy to have Anne-Marie on board mainly because she was the person we always wanted for the character. So much so that had she passed on the opportunity, we would have created another villain.

So it was with great pleasure that we learned she was to accept our invitation to join the cast. And while that particular shoot was excessively chaotic - there was a major snow storm that day that caused us tons of griefs and delays, Anne-Marie was an absolute trooper throughout, on time despite the snow storm (unlike some of our own crew!) and a joy to work with!

The episode will be online on Monday, July 11. While it is somewhat light on action, the script by Jim Burke is quite surreal in atmosphere and situations, while the interplay between Anne-Marie (as Madame Doom) and Pia Metni (as Masquerade) is very entertaining.

Keep an eye out because Madame Doom will be back in Episode 15, along with with Crimson (Bianca Beauchamp), Fleur-de-Lys (Edith Labelle), The Canadian (Larry Vinette), 8 Ball (Anderson Bradshaw) and Masquerade (Pia Metni). Oh! And you will get to meet the excentric
Seymour (Babak Motamed) and his ravishing Seymourettes (Baj Singh and Christelle Fournier).

Episode 12 and further website modifications

Episode 12 is finally online!!! Despite many attempts and our best efforts, this one was a tough one to release! What a struggle this one has been! For some reason, we had a string of problems with this episode, but the biggest one was a corruption of some footage files - we could not open the files from 2 cameras... It has taken weeks to find a way to recover the files somewhat intact - but then, the slow-motion shots where all screwed up. So it took a few weeks to fix those as well, and not for the best at that... Plus lots of other issues, some computer related, some logistics related... But it is finally here, better late than never as they say...

On another front, our website is growing at an alarming rate and it has started to create issues for us in terms of file management and memory... So we have to go back, tweak some things, restructure others and so on. So expect a few disruptions in some areas for the coming few weeks.

One of the first major changes is that the comics section is now in HTML 5, hence readable on ipads and other flash adverse devices.

Thank you all for your outstanding patience!

Episode 12: Crimson coming May 2nd!

Those of you who read or subscribe to our Newsletter are already aware that the long awaited Episode 12: Crimson is finally coming out on May 2nd, just in time for Election Day here in Canada!

We had to postpone the release of the episodes for a variety of reasons, in no particular order: sickness, website revamp, and the Canadian weather which has prevented us from shooting a few remaining scenes to complete the bulk of Season One. The weather is still not playing nice but it is coming to an end (hopefully!), so we will be able to resume shooting soon, the website revamp is almost finished and we are healthy again! So we are back on track and roaring to go!

For those who have not yet done so, we highly recommend reading the
Crimson comic BEFORE watching the episode.

Episode 12 features Bianca Beauchamp as the deadly Crimson, an assassin for hire working for the duplicitous Masquerade (Pia Metni). However, Crimson and her wolf, Lupa, will find Nordik (Vanessa Blouin) on their path of destruction... Be ready for quite a fight on May 2nd! It will not only be limited to the ballots!
