Excellent movie, the effects where really well done, worthy of anything I’ve seen sofar and very clever tricks added to make things more interesting. I wasn’t bored once. Mind you I don’t understand a word of German, but I got what was happening quickly which is hard to do sometimes with these movies. I thought the effects of the meteor exploding…[Read more]

I quite like this movie, regardless if the faces moved or not, I also thought the characters grabbed your attention from the moment the movie started. Okay so “Blunty” didn’t over-do-it with the effects and so forth (you expect this?), it still grabbed you none-the-less.
On the actual topic however, I think everyone is entitled to their opinon,…[Read more]
The movie I wanted to make was the 1965 Time Machine movie, I even started it using some of the key scenes but gave up due to the amount of time I’d have to spend making it. I even worked out how most of it could be done.
Also learned that building a Morlock can be a pain in the ass!
Yeah, it is buxtons, look at the bottom of the photo and if you read the writing you’ll see I mention him too?
(You lot may need glasses?)
Deeplink has been moved to the first post page.
Okay this is some of the characters used in the little movie.
As for the movie it’s self, I can’t be bothered figuring out how to deeplink again. Though, I hope this keeps you happy, Marty
Loved it! Excellent, simple & funny, would like to know if your going to re-shoot it as the famous knight scene from monty python using the Knights?
As for the Bunny, clever design and not what I expected, (I thought you where going to use the Nesquick one?)
Anyway look forward to the next thrilling adventures of the killer bunny, regards Marty
Okay, I agree with most and with “Lego” not being exactly cheap, this is one way to go.
If your looking for SW backgrounds then goto rebelscum as they have just about everything you want, landscapes and all.
If your looking to creating the lego look without spending a vast amount, then buy a set with as many different parts in it as you can.…[Read more]
While I agree with some of the above mentioned, for me this would be the set I’d want, (bear in mind, I actually own most of the sets Lego produced.)
I like a studio set that actually worked! Example, have a decent camera, with software that could do what most of the free-ware can (like skinning) without crashing, including effects, like…[Read more]
Yeap! Have seen most, and the ones I haven’t, I’m watching on ABC at 6pm on Australian telly.
Other things that hold an interest are,
The Time machine (1965)
John Carpteners “The Fog” (a good o’l ghost story.)
Blake 7, (worthy of a mention.)
Timeslip (o’l sixties Tv serial, bad acting but great story.)
Watcher in the woods, (spooky?)
First, “The Thing!” (Excellent! A great remake, why doesn’t somebody make the Fog!)
Second, Han Solo affair & Camelot (Lego studio’s web site.)
Third, A Christmas Carol. (Think this was very well done!)
Doctor Who, (loved it, wish he’d do more.)
All, pretty decent efforts, by all acounts, Marty
I’ve said this before, a Victorian theme based in London 1800-1900 would be a really good example also one on the great writers of that time would be interesting.
Think 20,000 Leagues, Invisible man, Time machine, Dr. Jeckel, the stories of Charles Dickens, Peter Pan, Sherlock homes, biggles in ww1, great explorers the list is endless.
Well, as much as I would like to show you the results, I have a real problem getting anything onto the brickshelf web site apart from pictures.
Thats why I gave up trying to send any movies to it.
As for the blue ink this is why you use the blue card in the background as you want as much light as possible to show on to the characters.
Great ideas! Have come up with a few ideas of my own, one being you can use the slider things from one of the small movie sets to fix the zoom problem, will have a picture of this up shortly also pan and tilt bracket has to be controlled otherwise it stuffs up the shot, will get back to you shortly when I’ve worked this out, Marty
Buxton, you have a valid point in that we should already know about this, but from what I’ve read regarding this, it was only very fast particle they used to send back in time, the mind boggles on how they actually proved that it went back, even then it was probably only a few nano seconds?
Confused, well, you should be!
I don’t know if this helps or not but I built a few while working on on a movie, which I never finished, they might give you ideas.
Just follow the link
Hope you like them.
Ps stick to the smaller one as it is easier to work with, Marty
Once you open this can of worms it’s amazing what comes out of the woodwork, fact! Time travel, in theory, is the only thing that has been proven, in 1960’s I think?
But there is another theory thats been doing the rounds for a while, it’s called timeslips, I won’t go into details, but there have been some well documented cases about this, most…[Read more]
