Nice... Love the colours and composition

02-15-2010, 12:13 AM
hi guys;
I really like the look of this one. Are you using the trace bitmap function in Flash? If so, would you mind posting a drawing/scan whatever. I'd love to see what an image looks like before you run the filter.
Thanks, G

02-15-2010, 12:33 AM
thx, i'm not using the trace fonction but line tool and filing form with color tool (paint pot ^^)

It's vector drawing.

02-15-2010, 12:45 AM
thanks very much for the info.
I'm guessing English isn't your first language. You probably don't need the 'coming' in your title. something like: "Invasion of the 50 foot Mummies From the Moon'
Just a thought.


02-15-2010, 01:02 AM
the title is temporary but thank you for the info :)

02-15-2010, 03:06 AM

this is one production that I have been following since the beginning. very professional work on all fronts. the visuals were themselves quite cool, but now I see that this will have a killer soundtrack, as well. keep up the good work!

04-08-2010, 02:23 AM
Hey guys, it's looking awesome.

I was wondering about your method for moving between Flash and AE. Would it be possible for you to cast some light on your workflow, such as how much of the fx/compositing is flash vs. ae, how your exporting from flash to AE (and if this is coming out frame-accurate for you, or are you not worried about that?).

I've seen lots of problems occur for people with Flash <-> AE without using 3rd party software to play out the individual frames, then there's problems with alphas and layers being lost if certain effects are on, and also not being able to use movieclips etc.

Would love to here your opinions and any problems you've encountered because the product is looking very nice :)

04-08-2010, 10:47 AM
Looks great guys, congratulation! Can't wait to see the final result!

04-08-2010, 11:50 AM
Great job. I love lighting and details like dust etc.
Are you planning to cut it down and make teaser or just leave it as it is?

I have a question: DO we really have to make a 30 sec trailer of the trailer ?

04-12-2010, 08:56 AM
30 sek trailer of the trailer is a teaser :) I'd make so that in teaser you won't show the bad guys but only devastation and horror of people.

btw on the poster i think yellow text would look better, but it's your call :)

04-12-2010, 09:47 AM
Looks great man! I'm also trying to avoid making a 30s version... I asked on the FAQ section they said that that's just a recommendation but you can try to ask again just to make sure...

This is not djo's music and sound fx, because he's polishing the movie music and we don't have much time for this little teaser.

the real music will be better , for sure ^^

And thank you all for your support that had a great motivation to finish ^^
sorry for my bad english

Every thing is a piece of art !
Great job guys !

I hope to see more of your work soon and the final piece really quickly !
I wish you the best !

Here we are at last!

Here is our participation to the contest. We are very happy to have been able to follow our ideas and to have finished the video right on time!
You have to know that all of your comments were a huge and constant motivation source, and we thank you for that.


Nothing could have let suspected that, on this particular night ,every fears had planned to gather. Ladies and gentlemen, protect your childrens and therefor... try to stay alive!.
Because they're back, back from space! And they didn't come here as friends. Fifty feet tall mommies coming from outer space invade our towns, bringing destruction and chaos along their way.
Where will you stand?
Will you be one to resist or will you surrender to panic?

About the movie

When we hear " b-movie", every clichés that characterize this kind of films immediately come to mind.
That's why we chose to interpret the contest's subject, not by trying to reproduce the fifties' style, but by looking at it from a different angle. Therefor we gathered in an absurd way some unthinkable clichés (invasion, fifty feet high, flying alien spaceship, mommies, coming from outer space etc..).
We settled the story in our time, and surrounded it with an orchestral music as striking as possible.

I hope you'll enjoy the work done with the music and sound design, Joe composed, played and recorded all of it by himself.

Good luck to all ! :beer:

Magnificent! well done guys...

Very well done! Congruats on finishing! Best to you all!

This entry really makes me want to see an entire film. It looks stylized and fun. You did a really nice job.

I think your entry would greatly benefit from some simple sound editing:
sound coming from the movie, louder/better car crash sound, better sound for zombie footstomp (sounds like glass breaking right now), laser sound is late in playing (or is that whoosh sound part of the soundtrack?), sound for zombies in field.

You nailed a few of the sounds like the ufo tractor beam. When you have good sounds some of the time and missing/mismatching sounds other times it makes the piece feel like it is a work-in-progress. In that case it would be better to remove sound effects and just have music.

The soundtrack is great and matches the beautiful artwork quite well.

04-18-2010, 01:05 PM
Sorry but we miss a sound track in this video.we are very tired...

so i hope to put the final "teaser-film-making of" video with this final sound and a better mix.

armless> thx, for your coment, please check the final video in 1 or 2 h.
jo is curently making some retake on this and unmute the thunder track we missed

Thx u all :)

we are very happy to see your feedback :)

Very satisfying to watch!
I really enjoyed your "making of" as well. It was a treat to watch.

My only complaint would be that the rules suggest the 30 second trailer is used for initial judging. Your 30 second trailer shows almost none of the beautiful work in your full length version and is more of a teaser than a trailer. This is a small complaint though :)

04-19-2010, 11:04 AM
thx :)

it's just because a trailer of the trailer is, mmmmhhh, ....... a teaser ^^

04-19-2010, 12:55 PM
"teaser" is suggested not obligatory! You don't need to have it

04-19-2010, 02:03 PM
"teaser" is suggested not obligatory! You don't need to have it

in addition to this, we had the discussion about the 30seconds must trailer lenght over at FAQ thread (page 10,11). The result is, there are mostly guides not rules related to the lenght specifications and many others specifications. Also, the written stuff is outdated in many ways. This challenge is like living thing.

Anyway, nice entry folks! Maybe the B-grade twist here is a bit controversional, because it looks like great CN show. To me, the spirit of B-grade is also somewhere else, not only in the story elements. I am not refering to bad image quality, noise or whatever disturbing. Just the spirit with less "wow" and more of the "cult". Good luck, you are masters!

04-19-2010, 04:29 PM
thx , and i understand what you say. it's just a different point of view :)

04-19-2010, 10:27 PM
nice job here :)
best entry for my myself

04-20-2010, 12:09 PM
thx again digi ,and i i still think i know you ...

04-20-2010, 01:31 PM
Oh my God !! :eek:
Pretty fantastic work !
I love all, the mood, the music, the animation.
One word : EXCELLENT !!!

(Vous avez assuré les gars. Je fais pitié à coté :) )

04-20-2010, 04:09 PM
Very cool entry, really love the art direction here, and to do everything in flash makes this piece unique. What I really like is the sound design, I can tell alot of time and effort went into it. I think few people realize how much atmosphere good sound design can add! I think you and I both benefited from having dedicated team members doing sound.

thx dude ! ( merci mec !, si t'as le temps, va voir le post de nos amis belge, le nom c'est " Bruno ISANA (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=305&t=852551)" ) ca m'a fait bien poilé , surtout vers la fin , faut bien prendre patience et tout regardé ^^ )

04-22-2010, 03:53 PM
I'm pretty astonished by what you can do only with flash.
Good luck !

04-22-2010, 10:08 PM
I made a mistake on a previous post, I said that I had to correct a problem of music in mono to a stereo version.
but the version I gave with the trailer and the making of is a MONO version.
THE ONLY STEREO version is the version in HD on www.rheo.fr (http://www.rheo.fr/crbst_1.html) which I mentioned the link in the previous post in question.
PLease Check this version , it's exactly the same version of our final entry but in stereo ! djo did a great work with his own music and soundfx and i dont want to cut his work...
Sorry for that

04-27-2010, 12:06 AM
nice work! you should consider submitting finished pieces to cartoon network or nickelodeon...the quality is definitely up there! :thumbsup:

04-28-2010, 10:33 AM

Thanks for the link, great piece, very good in every aspect.. Love this style in animation, reminds me of Invader Zim at times. Hope to see more of your work in the future!

06-22-2010, 11:49 AM
well done guys

look forward to seeing you in the next challenge!

06-24-2010, 09:49 PM
Congratulations with the prize guys!
Top notch work, really like the color pallet en scene compositions.
How did you manage those flash files? I see there are a lot of gradients and blurs, didn't that make the whole animation process sluggish? How did you create the blur effects in the backgrounds? With the blur filter? Flash usual creates crisp clear images but your backgrounds have some lens effects. Or is that all After Effects? I used to animate in Flash, but always had problems with large work files due to color gradients and filters.
