The new episode of Iron Sky Signal is out, and this time we are visiting The Dungeon, also known as Iron Sky costume and props department. This is the part of the film crew who is responsible for the awesome Moon Nazi Trooper suits you have already seen (and some really awesome spacesuits you haven’t yet seen!) plus 400 other costumes.
You may remember that the main cast of Iron Sky – Julia Dietze, Christopher Kirby and Götz Otto – visited Finland last month for a few day rehearsal retreat in middle of the Finnish countryside. While they were here, we asked our fans and followers in Facebook for some questions we could ask from the actors – and here are the answers!
As Timo wrote in his previous blog post, everybody is starting to realize that damn, there are only precious few weeks before we start to shoot this project! This is exciting time here in Blind Spot Pictures and Energia.
You might remember that we went to Australia a while back to do casting. Now we’d like you to meet Christopher Kirby who will be joining Iron Sky as the third member of the main cast. Christopher has spent the previous week in the deepest darkest Finnish countryside, holed up in a farm with Timo, Julia and Götz in an intensive rehearsal retreat, and today they emerged in front of the Finnish journalists.
Chris is an Australian-American actor who left Los Angeles for the land down under in 1999. He is a veteran of classic science fiction, starting his career with a role in Quantum Leap. He then went on to a recurring role in Space: Above & Beyond before moving on to films such as Daybreakers and Matrix: Reloaded & Matrix: Revolutions. Appropriately enough his character in the Matrix sequels was called Mauser.

Chris plays James Washington, the first African American astronaut on the moon. The year 2018 will see the first moon landing since 1972, sadly his crew won’t be as lucky as the Apollo astronauts.
Check out the interview with Chris below to hear what he’s got to say about fighting the Moon Nazi menace.
And here is the second part of our Australian odyssey! This time we visited the Australian countryside in search of some shooting locations we didn’t yet have, and a wilderness of a different variety – that of 15 000 scifi and fantasy fans in Supanova Pop Culture Expo in Sydney.
