Here are a few stills from the set of The Unlikely Mind of Howard Nimh, Princess Revolver’s short film about the first man to download himself into a computer. Sunday’s shoot went shockingly well, and we even ended ahead of schedule. Perhaps the two babies who visited the set brought good fortune. Everyone had a really great time, and knock on wood, post-production goes half as well.
These stills are all from the re-enactment scenes. Above is Josh Kashinsky as Howard Nimh, micro drive installed and plugged in.
Thanks again to everyone who took part in the shoot! We were really lucky to have you. Hopefully, a presentable cut of The Unlikely Mind of Howard Nimh will be ready by the end of October. We’ll see you in a couple months when we’re out of the editing room!

Here are a couple of the props we’ve put together for our short film The Unlikely Mind of Howard Nimh:
This is the micro drive we’re putting on the side of the head of the actor playing Howard.
A micro drive is basically a flash drive on steroids. For the short film we’ve envisioned one that can be jacked into a person’s brain. There’s a USB port on one side so the micro drive can be linked to a computer. I guess the wi-fi model was too expensive for Howard.
The above is the NIMH II, a hybrid computer that’s central to the film’s story. The liquid is supposed to be the analog component.
The computer case we built on is an old heap from the 90’s or something. It’s beige. (We need to thank Melissa’s tech support for the donation of that antique.)
We just have a couple more production meetings and we’re ready to shoot. Production is scheduled for one day, Sunday, August 7th. We’ll post some stills in the coming weeks.
