The first 90 seconds of Project London are now available here and at the Official Movie Website to give visitors a taste of the movie. The release of these 90 seconds coincided with the availability of Project London DVD and Blu-ray disks, as well as the opportunity to watch Project London On Demand.

Project London is an independent, almost 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. Watch it today!

We are delighted to report that Project London is an official selection of the Gen Con Indy Film Festival 2013, August 15-18. It’s an honor to be selected for this festival along with the other films in this event. And we’re very pleased that Jen Page (Xing Xing Fix) and Nathan Taylor (Blender Artist) will be there to represent the Cast + Crew of Project London. The complete list of festival offerings is posted on the Project London website.

The festival is being held at the Westin Hotel in downtown Indianapolis, IN August 15-18, 2013. Gen Con is expecting 41,000 attendees this year.

The trailer for Project London was crowd-sourced in very much the same way that the movie was. New friends found us as we posted requests for help on our production blog and stepped forward to help out.

Soren Laulainen has the amazing ability to see a story, take it apart in his mind, and put it back together in a more powerful way. This is how he created the concept for the official trailer. And what makes it fun, he creates gravitas and tension with misdirection and counterpoint so that watching the trailer doesn’t spoil the movie watching experience. Soren also created the music for the trailer which you can get as a bonus track on the deluxe version of the soundtrack.

Paul Miller edited the dialogue and sound for the trailer and mixed it—no small feat! Since the film shows a little of everything, that means he had to come up with sound design for everything because at this point, the sound editors hadn’t really started work.

Spiral Productions LLC has just completed a major overhaul of the Official Project London Movie Site. The previous version of the site served us well until it became clear that to show more clips, content and visuals, we needed to completely re-theme our WordPress content management system. The new site still utilizes the WordPress CMS and was heavily customized to work for the movie. We believe this upgraded site will take us through the release of the movie.

New features on the site include among other things, a character gallery, and pages for the Graphic Novel and Project Manhattan.

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 the cool article about us on the Wired UK website.

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.

This clip, Benny’s Fuel and Repair, was created and released to attract Blender Artists to our project; the science fiction action adventure film, Project London, written and directed by Ian Hubert.

This is the first clip that we released from the movie and we are darn proud of the work everyone is doing to make this movie really cool.

This is a screen capture of the new social network for the Spiral Productions movie, Project London. The site serves as a production blog and communication portal for the cast & crew as well as a meeting place for Blender fans and users.

The website is a significant component of Spiral Productions LLC plans to extend the experience of enjoying the movie, Project London with fans who may be interested in interacting with actors, the director and producers. Many value added elements and experiences will originate from this site including events, video clips, interviews, downloads, announcements, tutorials on specific aspects of animation and at some point, access to the actual animation elements created for the movie.

The site is built on Ning.com architecture and is skinned with Project London artwork. Features include member pages and blogs, groups, events, forums, chat, photos and video, and robust flexibility to customize and feature elements on the fly.
