Featured short film #1

Before the earth turns to melted goo, the thermometers change profession, and I retreat to my underground lair near the centre of the world where it's cool... compared to here. I will let you watch this little film.

This film was made by a set designer, what it lacks in animated magnificence (only due to time constraints and the lack of animators on the crew) it certainly makes up for in rich colours and beautiful sets. The story is a bit of a gem too.



And if you watch the credits, which I haven't, you may see a familiar looking name.

Take: 28

i wish i had the patience (and talent) to do these kinds of animations

Don't melt into the goo Mr Puppet Maker.

Gorgeous ... but I was urging him on to take those scissors to that horrid little girl's hair or dress*!*

I agree /t. I really like the film stock She used on this film too.

I think the animators on this film could have used a little more patience and talent too ;) OK, you'd know how funny that was if you'd seen how hard and fast they had to work.

"Watcha dooin?" We all say that to the Director when we see her.

Apparently the girl who this was based on is now called, 'She who must not be named'. But I think the horrid little girl is lovely. It was a really good puppet that one... until they were costuming her and they rubbed her face right off! If you freeze frame it on her one face shot she's hideous.

Awesomeness!

When I first saw little kids in it I thought "Ewww... little kids! I'll only watch it cos Rich is involved."

Then all of a sudden I saw wiggly things being smashed & goo going everywhere & I thought "Coooooooo-ooool!!!"

:-D

I miss you!

Like, I know! Who would have though smashing worms into goo could be, like, you know, deep or something.



PS. I don't believe you ;)

Grinning ... she has a faceless Dobbleganger puppet appearing in movies, of course she must not be named*!*

I found it a bit creepy like a dream that is not sure whether or not it wants to a nightmare.

On reflection, "eerie" is also a good description.

The little puppet guy is so you.

That's actually not a bad idea Bimbimbie; anyone who isn't very nice, name a real loser character after them in film. Hahaha, at least they would know they were remembered right?

It's definitely has that eerie quality to it. I think Patricks sound track really heightens that quality though. It'd be a bit different if it was to Circus music.

"Chucky: The Beginning." Cool. How's your creature feature coming???

Phos, I watched Chucky or the Bride of Chucky or something only a few weeks ago. Having not seen it before, those dolls were actually really cool and the control systems were well made. Terrible film but quite cool nonetheless.

Creature feature is going s-l-o-w-l-y. Not because there's not stuff that I could do but rather it's just me being a slacker when it comes to attaching actors, etc. I've got school starting again soon so there'll be plenty of chances to find the right actors now.

You are right! I turned the sound off...it made all the difference.

Music, when done well, can be a powerful thing Rita. Of course, most of us do it terribly.

This is one of my favourite re-edits ever.

The more my mind agrees with my mind, the easier it will be for me to receive and follow his instructions, even though they may seem bizarre ;)

lol! Like that...one day I will try...

Ruela... I honestly can't make heads nor tails of what you're talking about. Whose instructions are you following?

I'm glad it brings you plenty of mirth though.

Now I'm all hurt, Shel, I don't think we can be friends any more. ;)

Too funny.

Revenge of the Puppet Maker ... I can see your mind ticking over lol*!*

Oh, yes, quite. That could be the name of a movie, Revenge of the Puppet Maker. dum dum daaaaaah

Oh, and I prefer Faux-Life Form Engineer.

I don't think that movie title would look as scary with your FLFE title*!*

the worm divided in two
got two brains or just one ;)

Blogger G3T Films mused...

Hmmm... maybe Bimbimbie, maybe for that movie I should change it to Lifeless Object Reanimator

Blogger G3T Films mused...

That's a good question Ruela, I'd say... seeing as the film seems to be saying 'although some things can appear to be a disaster by removing the torn and damaged parts you can experience a new sort of growth' the new worms would have a brain each.

Although, maybe I'm over thinking it and half are just meant to be brainless Zombie Worms!

Oh, sorry Rita. Yeah, Mary Poopins!
