774 special effects shots. Almost no budget. All volunteer. Open source software. Welcome to the crazy awesome world of Project London - a feature length SciFi extravaganza.
What to do when you have an idea for a SciFi blockbuster with plenty of special effects, talented actors and a script in hand but you just can't get the funding together? If you're the folks at Spiral Productions you politely give the finger to thoughts of funding and script shopping then you go out and make your live action effects laden SciFi blockbuster. If that's not impressive enough, the film looks good and this is coming from a SciFi movie aficionado. Project London is an epic film with huge budget worthy special effects, and plenty of them, created by volunteers on the web and resulting in an actual, watchable, movie.
We've covered the soon to be movie phenomenon Project London before here on TC. Back in June of '09 it looked like a very cool idea making its way into realization. Now, it's set to be an actual, real, kick-ass SciFi movie in the near future! How cool is that? One of our celebrity friends, Jen Page is in the cast, which is also an added bonus for everyone.
This looks amazing for several reasons. It's a SciFi film which is always a good start. It's also a home-grown, independent film driven mostly by volunteers. Even more impressive, there are about 500 visual effects shots, composed via Blender and done by 3D artists around the world.
