Long Way Home

Last week, “man, ALIVE Studios” went to Glasgow to film some contemporary dance antics.

The filming went fine and we were all set to head home. Little did we know that Glasgow was very like the thunderdome in “MAD MAX 3”, but even more sinister;

“Two men enter, no man leaves.”

This is the story of those two men…

"That’s my wife!"

I was just looking back over our blogs and realised that I never actually got round to posting our first entry to the “Done in 60 Seconds” competition!

So here it is, a re-make of the 1920s classic, “NOSFERATU”.

If you’ve never seen or heard of “NOSFERATU”, then I can’t honestly say you’ve missed out (even though it was groundbreaking at the time and still succeeds in giving people the creeps), but here’s a weird video from youtube that contains some clips of the original set to a track by the band “Mogwai”.

That’s all from me today!

The president just asked us to save the world…

Well, we had a busy week last week. We had so much going on we didn’t even have time to blog, so consider this last week’s contribution! As well as putting in a lot of work to update our website, we also managed to finish off our last entry to Empire magazine’s “Done in 60 seconds” competition (which closed on Monday).

Below you can see a couple of mobile phone clips taken as we were filming for one of the scenes, followed by the final thing in all it’s 60 seconds of glory!

BLOGGING – Aftermath…

We got a message from someone on youtube saying this was the best Ben Affleck impersonation they’d ever seen. Considering I’ve never seen the film and look nothing like Ben Affleck we found that hilarious!

In other news, I was very saddened this week to hear about the death of Roy Scheider. For anyone who doesn’t know who he was, he’s best known for his awesome performance as “Chief Brody” in “Jaws”. This is one of my favourite films, and one of the main reasons for that is Roy Scheider’s portrayal of this character. In memory of Mr. Scheider and this great film, and in keeping with the 60-second theme, I’ve posted this little vid from youtube. Hope you enjoy it…

Wanna know how smart I am?

Well folks, it’s been a strange week here at “man ALIVE Studios”.

Some sad (but also happy) news as James, our EXCELLENT animator, has taken up a full-time job as a concept artist elsewhere and as a result is unable to commit the same time to the business as Stu and myself. Fortunately James has resolved to keep as involved as he can, but the grief of loss has caused us to come out with some weird ideas this week! As an example, have a look at this video we used to promote our profile on myspace:

cup of blogs!

Took us 15 minutes to make that little gem.

We also continued work on our entries for Empire’s “done in 60 seconds” competition, but without our animator we had to do the best we could for the CGI in “KING KONG”!

Finally, I thought I should throw in this clip of Phil playing the part of Steve Buscemi in “Armageddon”, Stu’s entry to the competition;

Phil is Steve Buscemi!

Haha! I love that guy. Er… in a purely platonic way of course…
