For those of you that might be aware of my previous topics pertaining to my 3+ hour film (which was a nightmare that consumed my soul for almost 2 years), it might interest you to know I’ve finally completed it in every way, shape, and form. It is on DVD in two versions (the Regular Cut, and the Director’s Cut). The Regular Cut is 197 minutes on 2 discs, and the Director’s Cut is 217 minutes on 2 dics.
The reason I bring any of this up is that I will send one copy of the version of your choice to anyone interested in seeing this film. I’d submit it on here, but it’s a little too large for that.
Obviously it’s free to anyone interested, but (due to the work involved in replicating them) I am only willing to send out a maximum of 10 total copies, at least for now. I’ve often wanted to get outsiders input on the project, and for those of you who end up really appreciating it, ask, and I’ll send you a “deluxe” box set of the version you requested. Now, let me elaborate more on what the film is like:
OVERVIEW: It’s called the Wars of Darkness. It’s genre is Medieval Fantasy, similar to the Lord of the Rings. It’s an original story, but does borrow your typical fantasy elements (magic, wizards, Orcs, etc.). It’s a somewhat darker film, and the especially squeemish might not appreciate it.
STORY SUM UP: Basically it’s your classic Good vs. Evil type of story. The main character is the prince of an ancient kingdom that was overtaken and enslaved by a malicious evil. Having fled his homeland with an exodus of his people, he befriends the king of a neighboring nation. He and the king then embark on a crusade to vanquish the evil that grips the land.
TECHNICAL OVERVIEW: I guess this what you call the cons section. The film is made using Lego Studios, and therefore suffers from poor picture quality, at least as compared to better filming programs. It also contains ‘borrowed’ music and sound effects. Lastly, the DVD maker I used doesn’t allow chapter creation, nor a opening menu like in regular DVDs. That last point, however, I aim to remedy after writing this. Also, if for any reason your copy doesn’t work properly or eventually wears out, let me know and I’ll send you a new one.
So in conclusion, if you are interested in seeing this, let me know via a private message or even through this topic, and we’ll work out details. Oh, and for those of you who do see it and enjoy it, the prequel screenplay to this film has already been written, though that project is at least a year off, for it is fourth in my project queue . Well, thanks for viewing this (and the film if your interested), and happy filming!

I’d be interested to see that film, Selavast. Although it is made with Lego Studios, the story sounds very promising.
May I ask about the costs (although it’s bit weird to bring up that, as it is full of copyrighted sounds and music and such, making it illegal to actually ‘sell’ it for real money)? May I also ask about shipping problems (is it possible for you to ship to The Netherlands)?August 15, 2005 at 8:33 pm #124092August 15, 2005 at 8:53 pm #124095
You might want to take a que from Blunty and make the DVD available on bittorent. You might also consider downloading the trial of a more advanced DVD creator. Adobe Encore, Sony DVD Architect, and Vegas Movie Studio + DVD all have free trials on their websites and would allow for the creation of a better looking DVD.August 15, 2005 at 8:58 pm #124096

Congratulation on your 3 hours film (if it’s true…)
All of it was made using the lego cam 😯 I would have at least spent an extra 50$ for a quickcam.
What is the frame rate? (Hoping it’s not one frame per 5 seconds like other long brickfilms :wink )
I may be interested; I’ll wait for the trailer.
