Dune – A Special Edition of David Lynch’s film

Posted by LiveFor on May 7, 2010

Work is slowly moving on with a new version of Dune directed by Pierre Morel (Taken). However, a person by the name of Sasha Burrow has a project to revamp the David Lynch version (which I love) by giving it all new special effects. Kind of like the Star Wars Special Editions only with more love.

This is a project I have been slowly working on over the last few years with the goal of ultimately replacing many of the “outdated” special effects shots in David Lynch’s 1984 version of Dune.

The project initially began as an endeavor to build a “proper” ornithopter – one with flapping wings, that neither the movie or the mini-series managed to achieve. However, with the advent of the “fan-edit” the scope of the project has expanded with the goal of updating the effects in all those places in the movie where I feel things could be significantly “improved.”

Although I am currently working on this by Myself, it’s a large undertaking and if there is anyone interested in helping this project along, feel free to contact Me – We might actually be able to get this project completed with a few more skilled and enthusiastic people!

Let me tell you they have done an incredible amount of work. Diagrams, CGI tests, pre vis bits, mock up for DVD packaging and more. Absolutely incredible and one day it would be so good to see the updated version. Head on over to the site for more info on it. Good luck on the project.

Get Out of There – Looks like we got ourselves a montage

Posted by LiveFor on May 6, 2010

Another great movie cliche, “Get out of there”, distilled into 4 minutes. The longer it goes on the more of a weird kind of mantra it becomes.

Be sure to check out the others – “We’ve got company“, the mirror scare and no signal.

What other ones should they do?

HBO / Marvel 1910 TV Series Opening

Posted by LiveFor on April 27, 2010

This is very cool.

What if… HBO created a TV show with the Marvel characters (cast as we know them) set 100 years ago? Using footage of actors such as Hugh Jackman, Tobey Maguire, Robert Downey Jr and many more from period piece movies, this video is an LXG-style mock-up of a concept I’ve had for a while. I’ve even included an opening scene for added effect.

Footage from: Ghost Rider, Daredevil, Elektra, Seabiscuit Marie Antoinette, Shakespeare In Love, Iron Man, The Illusionist, The Incredible Hulk, Australia, HBO Rome and the trailers for Sherlock Holmes, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Sorcercer’s Apprentice.

*Music by Immediiate Music – ‘Slay The Dragon’
*Notes: Everytime I see a CBM actor in a turn-of-the-century; Victorian Era; Period piece movie, I think ‘wouldn’t it be cool to put them into a trailer or TV show where they’re all humble heroes back then?’ Well, this vid is designed to do just that. Being thoughtful to the background of each shot, I used another smorgasbord of resources to offer another ‘alternative vision’ to this fun genre.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it!
