In a previous thread, Rye mentioned some “bad news” regarding an upcoming movie. Below is a guest post straight from Rye explaining the situation and asking for your input. Help Rye make the right decision and read his guest post below!
Heroines: Superia, Superior Girl
Villains: Ro’gash, Synestra
Setup: Pre-Vengeance Factor
While small time criminal Jessica Macallen is down on her luck she stumbles upon an unusual helmet resonating with evil. It bonds with her energy and springs to life in her hands! It makes promises of unspeakable power if she is able to reunite the helmet with it’s body. Not able to pass up an offer of super powers she brings the helmet to it’s body and joins them together and Ro’gash lives once again. Holding up his end of the bargain, Ro’gash imbues Jessica with dark energy and his new apprentice is ready to create chaos for superheroines around the world. Her first task is to gain the attention of either alien from his home world, Superia or Superior Girl and lure them to Ro’gash.
Jessica goes to the city center and attacks law enforcement which quickly earns her a confrontation with Superia. Jessica takes advantage of her new powers and toys with the blond heroine is a game of cat and mouse but Superia eventually out wits the young villain and demands her name. She answers with “Synestra”. Superia knocks Synestra out bringing her home for questioning about her violent rampage in the city, and how she got her powers. Superia leaves a slumbering Synestra on her couch while she changes cloths but comes back to find and empty room and whispers of laughter. Superia is grabbed from behind and she tries to dislodge the hands around her waist, but her strength is simply not enough. She turns her head to look at Synestra but her eyes gaze upon a jet black adversary that easily tosses her to the ground. Superia gets to her feet and gives her new foe several punches but they have little to no effect on Ro’gash. Superia soon finds herself on the receiving end of a terrible beating that eventually renders her unconscious.
When the brave heroine awakes her arms are bound, her powers are suppressed, and Ro’gash is exploring her body! She is given the option to join Ro’gash and conquer earth at his side but Superia stays defiant and ignores his offer. This only earns her another pounding while completely defenseless to his attacks. Ro’gash completely strips the blond crime fighter and ravages her body from behind. Superia starts to lose her will to fight and Ro’gash takes over her mind, body, and soul.
Superior Girl learns her sister has been captured and immediately comes to her rescue finding a sleeping Superia on the dungeon floor. Superia’s eyes flutter open and she thanks her sister for coming to her aid but makes it clear she doesn’t want to leave… Superior Girl assumes she isn’t thinking clearly from being tortured and starts dragging her sister away but Superia snaps and tosses her sister into a wall. Superia reveals her new alliance with Ro’gash and starts attacking Superior Girl. It is clear to Superior Girl that her sister is being mind controlled by Ro’gash so she tries to incapacitate Superia for her own good.
The two superheroines pass powerful blows to one another until Superia finally falls. Superior Girl raises her hand to knock out her sister but her attack is stopped by Ro’gash. Superior Girl goes on the offensive but is clearly no match for his strength! Ro’gash subdues Superior Girl while her sister devastates her with shots to her face, stomach and crotch. Ro’gash offers Superior Girl a place at his side which is of course quickly dismissed. Ro’gash commands Superia to force her sister to cum to start the brainwashing process. To Superior Girl’s dismay, her sister lifts her skirt and goes to town on her crotch with her hands and tongue! Ro’gash gropes the trapped heroine while her sister continues to violate her body, and Superior Girl can only moan in protest of the vile attacks. Ro’gash feels she is barely able to fight back the feelings and pleasure growing inside her so he takes matters into his own hands and ravages Superior Girl while her sister watches with glee…
The movie description is truly only half of what I needed to show in this film and it sounds better in spirit than what was captured. I spent far more time coaching the fight scenes with the new actress than originally planned, which made it impossible to get all the content I wanted. Furthermore, the scenes I was able to get I am not happy with… In fact I am concerned enough that I am considering giving this video the NBC treatment and shelving it, cutting my losses and moving on to another project. I don’t think I am being overly critical here either.
The scenes with Superior Girl just didn’t come out the way they should have and I am not going to sit here and hype a video that doesn’t deserve it. In the end I am the only one to blame because our new actress had never been in a PH video before and I should have given that more consideration in the planning stages. I should have planned for more time and I just didn’t. The fight scene I wanted didn’t happen, which was going to be the meat and potatoes of this vid. The dialogue with Superior Girl was drastically cut down because it just wasn’t coming across well. Again this all falls on me!
Can it be salvaged?
I reviewed the footage over and over which only brought me to one conclusion, which was scraping it. Not every scene with Superior Girl was sub-par; however, enough were to bring me to this point. This was a very difficult decision, especially when this video debuts my new super villain. He was built by hand from fiberglass by a very skilled friend of mine who worked day and night to get the prototype ready for this film. The new superior girl costume was also a huge upgrade I would hate to see go to waste but I am not exactly ready to spend a week editing a video that is going to disappoint.
After sitting on it for a couple days I am left with one question for YOU.
To edit or not to edit:
Though I am already in the mindset to scrap it, I’ve decided to leave it up to the fans… This seemed like the best course of action since I am not a customer. So what do you want me to do? Should I toss the footage and start up on a fresh project or would you rather have the opportunity to get this film? There is no wrong answer to this question and there is no one more qualified to decide its fate than you.
Thanks for reading,
