Weekend Away #1 - Adam's raised hand?

I'm away for the weekend and taking a well-deserved break from my freelance work on Filmation's Ghostbusters for BCI. The next Blog update will be on Monday! With this in mind instead of a video clip or a UK comic post I decided to give you all something to wade through; FOURTEEN posts...

Enjoy! :)

Here is something that only I would find interesting, but I will throw it out to you all in any case. "Dawn of Dragoon" has a few oddities and variations on the transformation sequence, mainly on the stock footage of Prince Adam unsheathing the Sword of Power. The two images below show one of these minor oddities. The image on the left is how Prince Adam is positioned as he unsheathes the sword only to find out that he cannot transform on Trolla, while the image on the right is the traditional stock image of him ready to unsheathe the sword. The obvious difference is that Prince Adam's hand is still raised when it should already have dropped out of frame. This is the only occasion where Adam keeps his hand raised while reaching for the sword. Yes, only I could make a Blog entry about that!

If it's about the transformation-sequence, I'm always eager to learn new little quirks about it. :)

If I can remember correctly, Prince Adam's hand is still raised when he lowers the Sword of Power to discover that he cannot transform, so maybe that's why his hand was raised all along, to keep the continuity flowing.

This reminds me of the second transformation sequence from "Orko's Favorite Uncle," when Prince Adam already has his hand lowered, before he raises his sword, as he states, "Easier said than done." On this occasion, however, it's the reverse of what this entry pointed out. :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...
