Was this a Doco or film? It has lots of links I shall have a look at. Great work.

That was cool!

I even like that song... haven't heard it since 1990 or thereabouts, but it sounded sped up to me on this video. (I'm sure my old cassette tape copy is long dead.)

Incredible what can be done with limited physical resources! And yes the music track, Two Tribes by Frankie Goes to Hollywood, has been speeded up somewhat. Holly Johnson was never quite that shrill!!!!!

I just goes to show that tools don't make the art, the creativity of individuals do. What has changed though in the past decade is that the cost of computer software has come down to the point where almost anyone can order the proper compositing software to edit stuff like this together, if they have the ability to film/create all the seperate elements (or obtain them from third party sources) and the ability to learn to use the software properly. But those that can do it better then others will always stand out as the real talented individuals.

Here is another example of a big budget looking product from a relatively small group of creative individuals with the right combination of talent and tenacity. The blast effects, explosion/spark effects and 3D models were all composited into the live 3D action using similar techniques.

That was absolutely incredible for a fan-made video! I jumped in my seat more than once. The fight choreography was impressive. Wow!

And the next to the last line in the credits ("Thanks for mot suing us, George") made it worth sitting through the last 2 minutes!
