Book of Mormon Trailer First Shoot!

Hey folks, this is Josh checking in for the weekly update. Actually, it's been two weeks, but that's beside the point lol. We have lots of fun stuff to cover, so lets get started!

First off, as our nifty title suggests, principle photography for the Book of Mormon movie trailer started this week. I am so pumped.

We went up to a place called Bridal Veil Falls in Provo Canyon, which was beautiful beyond beautiful. Here's a taste of what we got:

Above: This one is lightly photoshopped, he was standing in the shadow to the right but I moved him a bit. Beautiful shot though, this was taken by our DP Aaron Allsop

This One's kind of fun- it's based on the characters Joseph copied down from the original Golden Plates that were inscribed with the book of Mormon. So what you're looking at is actual reformed Egyptian, as it appeared on the original plates.

This is the original sketch I took from the picture of Joseph's original sketch from the original. (I guess then it would be "sketch the 3rd" and not original lol. That's what it looked like anyway)

OK this isn't from the movie, just my sketchbook lol. Experimenting with Nephite costume ideas

Ditto. I kind of like the face on the right, he's based on Tony Robbins from a show I was watching

More Captain Moroni. Hardcore.

This is Ammoron, evil Lamanite King, mourning the death of his Brother Amalickiah who was assassinated by Teancum.

Anyways, that's it for now, I have a lot more sketches but no time to upload them :( Maybe next week. Hope you enjoyed!


  1. Really nice shots, and, I didn't know there was going to be a warrior with the turtle shell in the trailer too,

  2. :) Thanks :) Though the turtle-shell guy is just a doodle, lol. It would be cool if he was in the trailer, though. I need to write captions :)

    Thanks again for continuing to follow, you're awesome :)

  3. "cool turtle shell armor", is there ANY turtle shell armor that ISN'T cool for you? :)

  4. Hey, have you seen this? Maybe you showed it to me before already,, but I thought it was neat, although it's clips from different movies, it reminded me of yours,

    You're doing amazing for doing it all by yourself, coming up with your own clips and all, I really hope it all works out, well, I know it will, I'm looking forward to its completion! :]

  5. :) Thanks, that's a great vid- there need to be more people making videos like that. There are so many talented people in the church- I hope the new trailer will help inspire people to use their talents to spread the good news
