Headache-key

Tribulations of a small lego-man pilote, who has to deal with human beings...

Headache-key (youtube)
Headache-key (making-of & bloopers)

Hello, mini/smile

This is another film we made in 2005. We've uploaded it on youtube to have a higher resolution than on our website. We improved the translation and slightly accelerated the film so that its length would be less than 10 minutes (for youtube).
We hope you still enjoy it.

Re: Headache-key

Very good.
Must have taken a while to finish it.
When the plane (or what ever you call it) flies then it would be more realistic if there was a shadow.

Re: Headache-key

Thanks for your comments!

It took us about 4 months to make it.
We had already thought about the missing shadow of the ship, but it was technically too difficult to do, because the shadow was too blue and therefore disapeared when we used the blue-screening... mini/confused

It would have been easy to do when digitally doing the shadow.

Did you read the description? Consider that this was made five years ago.

Maybe five years ago it would been harder.

If you have Sony Vegas Pro then there are two options.
1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sa1rAfjKF7s watch the second one of his tries.
2. You add new layer and solid black color, then mask it to right shape of object you want to add shadow and then change opacity of that solid color.
Simple.

Re: Headache-key

Wow! Yet another great story and superb animation from the two of you. Bravo!!! Can't wait to see what you do next.  (Loved the baby!) mini/bigsmile

Re: Headache-key

yeah, i like this, keep it up man mini/sunnies

Re: Headache-key

@ legoluke654:

Yes, that's true it's not very difficult nowadays to make a shadow if you have the proper software. We think we would have managed to do it quite easily today with the editing-software we use now (magix video deluxe).
But in 2005, we were testing several things we didn't really know about and we were still using windows movie maker, which is only alright for beginners... mini/wink

Re: Headache-key

We don't know what bafran is... But yes, we used a lot of green or blue screens. The software we used was free and its name was "Masterkey".
We did a "making-of" film for headache-key, and we are just about to translating it into english so as to upload it on youtube maybe this evening or tomorrow (the french version of it is on our website). We'll post a link here when it is ready. mini/smile
