Hello everyone. I'm here as usual - hoping for some great time and challenges. Good luck everyone expecialy veterans!
IThings I've got in my mind are cardboard monster robot attacking our? planet vs Giant blue cat operated by simpson like character, flying sharks and whales etc... on the other hand I'd like to remake some classic drama story pastiche
Cheers!

EDIT:
I'm doing pastiche inspired by:

D9
Avatar, Terminator S, Watchmen, Star trek, Hulk, The day the earth stood still
beware...

Hey fgdf,

Nice to see your the first to have something posted to show.
Though it does reminds me a bit too much of the style of that cop character from the digital tutors modeling tutorial. I hope you can take it much further that that.

good luck

Doc character sketch. I want thin limbs and egglike/box like bodies. I know this style is very common today and I want to keep it this way. Chew mainstreem stuff with your own mouth - this is the spirit of b movies as I understand it.
Best to you Nothingness!

Hej Magda! Nice to see you here. Dzięki! ta edycja zapowiada się na zwariowana.

Plan is simple. No touching stories. I'll try to put as much absurd as I can in my story.
Here's a plot to consider;]

Captain DOC and attack of the giant whale abductors from space

fade in:
Plate
"Week ago scientist found giant object flying through space toward earth
It turned out to be a giant space ship. Suprisingly it didn't land on New York, London or Tokyo. Object stopped only hundred meters from earth surfacce above small town of known only for its oceanarium. Object didn't land or tried to communicate...until that day."

Retro TV news broadcast
In a fast montage we see IR photos of incoming ship than we look from perspective of car driver at the giant space ship levitating above middle size city. We see army camp settled on a hill near the town.

Broadcast: "Noone knew why they came to our planet..." as we hear it we see a moon coverd with projection from a ship- we can recognise Giant Whale shapes.

Broadcast "When all forms of communication failed..." - as we hear it we see shots of army shooting and attacking ship with no result, bullets and rockets seem to be deflected by some kind of magnetic field,
Broadcast "...something happend"

From a extreme wide shot we see as huge brown sphere falls out from the bottom of the spaceship.

From a flyby camera we look at the site where sphere has fallen. It's now surrounded by army troops tanks and helicopters.

Giant brown sphere starts to glow. Surface dissapears we see giant robort kneeling. Machine arises.

Broadcast "In the dark times, when everything fails, there is one man we can trust..."
We see a ship landing in the military camp. Ship reminds of a smiling face. Ramp opens. We barely see silhouette as light from the entrance blinds us. From above we see a human shadow as it covers the ramp. Man stops, we see as shadow expands as he takes off a helmet.

Broadcast "Captain Doc"
We see Captain Doc in all his magnificence.

CAPTAIN DOC:
"Bring it on!"

Broadcast "
News-like montage of debrief , GIANT ROBOT walking down the streets toward oceanarium, DOC pushing a button on his wrist.

We're in space, we see some kind of orbital station, some attached to it object as it ignites it's engines.
Giant bullet like object enters atmosphere, it glows - it looks like a meteor. As it passes army camp smaller object detaches - a crate - and lands on a parachute in the middle of the camp. Giant bullet hits the ground near the downtown. We see impact crater and two giant blue robotic legs and tail buried in a ground.

We see Old woman walking down the street in a downtown as shadow covers everything. Grandma looks up and starts to scream. In the frame we see street, on the right side there is a glowing shop label and promotional stand, in a background giant robot passes.

GENERAL, SOLDIERS and DOC are gathered around the crate. Crate opens. tension grows as futuristic fancy object changes its shape in a complicated sequence. It turnes out to be a mini trolley size model of a blue cat with wires a rig of some kind.

Fast montage as DOC connects his limbs to a machine that turnes out to be a giant motion control device.

Giant blue cat machine arises.

CAPTAIN DOC:
"Let's do this!"

In slow motion we see a SOLDIER on his kneels waves two flares in hes hands, GIANT BLUE CAT passes, we see it's "belly".

Confrontation, we see series of western like close ups.
Both giant machines seem to move in slow motion due to their giant size.
GIANT ROBOT punches first but misses, punches again and misses but this time he hits building - a giant donnut on the roof. Donnat flies and hits the army camp. Panic starts in the camp. Tanks are destroyed one soldier screams while running.

SOLDIER
"Everyone get to tha choppa"


GIANT BLUE CAT stands on two feets and hits GIANT ROBOT with a series of slapps
GIANT ROBOT contracts successfully punching GIANT BLUE CAT's jaw.
We see DOC in remote control as he absorbs this punch in a slow motion. Army troops around are irritated

Robots are now in clush, both robots tries to crush the oponent
GIANT ROBOT holds GIANT BLUE CAT, we see struggle on their faces and finally a touchy look on GIANT BLUE CAT's face.
GIANT ROBOT throwes GIANT BLUE CAT on a nearby building and starts to walk to oceanarium. His walk turnes to jog

GIANT BLUE CAT reboots, arises and look toward nearby hills and ocean as GIANT ROBOT jog to the oceanarium.
GIANT BLUE CAT runs through the fields, obviously he takes shortcut and he is first on the site.
GIANT ROBOT appears, we see his angry
GIANT BLUE CAT holds a whale
GIANT ROBOT seems to be worried as GIANT BLUE CAT plays with a whale
Closeup on a whale - it seems worried too
GIANT BLUE CAT swallows whale as GIANT ROBOT jums on the CAT
We see soldiers applause

GIANT BLUE CAT turnes around when GIANT ROBOT grabs his tail with left arm and prepares to strike a blow. He does, BLUE CAT eye's popps out he looks like he's about to vomit.
GIANT BLUE CAT blows and whale flies high in the sky.

We're inside a plane, young girl watches clouds, suddenly a whale flies nearby, girl is supprised.

From ground level we observe as whale falls toward the ocean.
We see a race to the shore GIANT ROBOT seems to be a leader, he jumps, he almost grabs the whale when GIANT BLUE CAT grabs his leg
Whale falls into the ocean, GIANT ROBOT falls and impales on a lighthouse,
GIANT ROBOT is about to die, GIANT BLUE CAT wins
GIANT ROBOT manages to push some buttons on a device on his wrist, he starts to laught.
We see and hear countdown
GIANT BLUE CAT figures out something's wrong about to happen, he runs as fast as he can
We see DOC in a remote control machine, soldiers cheers him

GIANT ROBOT explodes, we see small nuclear mushroom
Space ship flies away.
TV BROADCAST : Celebrations CAPTAIN DOC did it again!

Hi Amir I'm a lone wolf on this one. 80 sounds dramatic but there is like !50 major shots and 30 fast minor just to bump dynamics including some static plates etc.

I agree with amir jahanlou, 80 shots thats huge ammount of shots for one man

my last chellenge learned me one - lot of shots lot of work and lot of data managing. thats why i will take under 10 shots in my new entry.

try to figure most pivotal moments to get the story more clear and safe some time for enhance the quality

I'm working on Giant Robot, Model and shaders looks like this atm. This may change after some tests in enviroment (lots of reflections). I haven't decided if I needs any more detail since it looks about like I intented it to look.

Hi, I like your robot design. its simple and cool. love the shaders on it. the character designs are also interesting. like the way ur progressing everyday.:beer:

just one think about your robot's shoulder joint. its looks like its stick (penetrating) to the chest. may be u can create a gap between ur shoulder joint and chest so that it will look like the joint is inside the chest.
well thats my thought. may be u may have a purpose for it to be in that. :)

All the best mannnnnnn :thumbsup:

Thanks guys I hope I won't dissapoint anyone.
@Sagar You've got nice catch - yes it is this way intentionally. It gives less movement options so it has to grab things in a certain kitsch way. :beer:
@Gilles I hope it would get as close to epic as it gets :beer:
good luck to you people! :beer:

Hello!
Contract work kept me away from this challenge for a while. There's +20 days to go and I'm not done here.
Look's like ~1 shot per dey to do, and very little (no) margins for mistakes. The race is on. I'll update frequently

This is what I've got so far.
I cut most of the shots so it will now become shorter and possible to finish on time. Here's some intro sequence footage

love the camera work and robots shade looks great!
little remark, you could try shade the tank a little better, scraches, dirt and old edges would do well there if tank is important ofcourse.

actually I thought that it was intentional! because you shaded this robot so well that everything else would look under shaded :) I think if that's the look then don't change it. only maybe give plastik even more of plastic look. Sort of over do it, like they do in b-grade movies everything over the edge :)

@Anton That's the spirit and beauty of b-grade movies. Almost everything can be fit on screen and no regreats. I switched army metal shaders and gave them more reflection - I liked and it stays - thanks for pointing out!

@Julien Thanks man I hope I won't dissapoint you.

If you see any mistake let me know
As usual please download movie (43 mb)

I am glad you made it on time. I was smiling during your whole movie, you nailed the propaganda feel and the voiceover is way cool. I didnt really read your subtitles, there was no need to do so. Great entry and I think a very succesfull take to the challenge theme. Definitely an original one. Good luck!
