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!

Kudos for completing a 3 hour brickfilm. Just out of interest, if you’re working on your own, how have you managed to end up with a regular cut and a director’s cut? Surely they’re both director’s cuts?

Lol, ya I guess you’re right! One is a less violent version of the film is all. I kinda got censored by my actors during filming because of the spiritism references etc. So I decided to make two versions. One being more friendly.

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)?

Remember that it’s free, even shipping is as well. And ya, I can ship pretty much anywhere I’m sure, so just send me your mailing address through a Private message. I’ll review it, and send it right out. Oh, also tell me what version you want.

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.

Can you upload a trailer, so that we can judge whether we like it enough to have it sent to us?

I second that.

Congratulation on your 3 hours film (if it’s true…)
All of it was made using the lego cam :shock: 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.

I’ll start work on a trailer promptly. Keep in mind, that the trailer I send will have poorer visuals than the actual film will, because for whatever reason it looks better on DVD. I’ll post on this topic when I’ve made the trailer.

Actually the trailer won’t be done for a bit, simply because I just figured out I don’t know a dang thing about making trailers! :lol: So, I’ll review the way other people do them, then work on my own. You can expect to see one later this week. I’ll call it ‘The Wars of Darkness’ trailer.

Well, if you don’t mind, I’d like to see the movie, Selavast. Sounds promising. :)

Nice one, AJ. Blame it on your actors. :P

I can attest, it is excellent. You’ll hear my ridiculous voice on two of the characters (guess which ones! :) ). Now on to the next film, buddy! Better do a good job, or it’s YOUR A-what was I saying again?

wow, a 3 hour film…

is it really free? why would you spend the money on shipping and DVD’s to send them out for free? There has to be a catch or something. :wink

I am interested, but I will wait until I see a trailer though.

I’m looking forward to making the trailer soon. As I’ve stated, I’ll be sure to let everyone know when it’s complete! And BTW, there is no catch to this at all. Sure I’m spending a little money and a fair amount of time doing this, but I’ve wanted to share this for some time now, so it’s nice to finally be able to! Besides, I’m only sending out a limited number of copies!
