Spiral Productions LLC has just completed a major overhaul of the official Project London movie site. The original site was a single HTML page with a graphic, a link to the production blog and a link to sign up for the sometimes monthly email. The new site is built on the WordPress CMS system with a custom theme by Press75.com, which was again heavily customized to work for the movie with support from Hao Xiaobo.

Features planned for the near future include a character gallery, a page about the graphic novel (being created by Branson Anderson) and enhanced store features.

Project London is an independent, no-budget, feature-length, live action movie with vivid, intense, and marrow-vibrating visual effects and animations created with the open source software Blender (and other traditional software) and 250 (or so) worldwide volunteers. It’s led by The Triumvirate and set in Seattle, Washington. It will be available for worldwide viewing in its entirety very soon. In the meantime, check out an interview with the director: “Project London: The Most Ambitious No-Budget Effects Movie Ever

Jawbone.tv has just published an interview with Ian Hubert, director and visual effects supervisor of Project London. Read it here.

Synopsis: A homeless race of aliens known as Nalardians have found and been given refuge on Earth. A young man, Nebraska Higgins, is unwittingly thrust into a struggle for a planet in peril. His enigmatic father and sole pilot of the iconic robotic green exosuit, Arizona, is taken from him during a hot pursuit by the Joint Command (the global police and military force). The London Underground, a rag tag resistance force, appear to be interested in recruiting Nebraska, but he’s confused by his tragic loss and manipulative Joint Command Officers. Old and secret government experiments gone horribly wrong have been resurrected with horrific ramifications. Can Nebraska come to grips with the loss of his father as interplanetary calamities threaten to destroy the world around him? The fate of the planet hangs on the potential in a young man’s heart.

The visual effects for the film are being created using Blender, open source software. This is perhaps the first feature length film to combine live action elements with animations created using Blender. Which is why there are thousands of Blender users around the globe anxiously awaiting the release of this film.
