Default HALF BAKED 7: A Parody

Well, I've mentioned the B7 video I made rather a long time ago (1987) , and that this forum has pretty much motivated me to remake it. Some people here have asked me to post it on youtube , but I don't want to do that until it's actually finished...there is a lot of animatics instead of CG ship footage right now, which will be replaced as my CG buddy finishes the sequences. On the other hand, I could use some help with this, so to compromise (and hopefully get some help) I put together a trailer which has what I hope enticing glimpses of the process. Also, I found out that apparently my natural editing rhythm synchs up to Burt bacharach.

PS. I used some stills from the forum for some of the animatics, I hope I remembered to ask everyone and credit properly. If not, PM me and I'll fix it next update.

Very nice Ham. It reminded me of Saturday Night Live. That's not an insult, I think it's the music, which is Herb Alpert.

The rest of it is even worse!
There's another scene I'd like to shoot involvin a very unlucky trooper, and what was Blake actually doing all those years, if i can. Get the masks and helmets together for it.

When I can get the trooper helmets together, I can shoot the bit where flake gets locked in a broom closet for several years.

Look, is it OK if we call you Bruce, just to avoid confusion?

I thought that it was agreed that board members with the 'pro' Icon were to be generically called 'andys', right? Also, I'd like to ask that you andys get together and produce an 'andy approved' icon. Thank you.

Well, actually I was referencing the 'University of wallamaloo' sketch from 'monty python', but that works too...

I thought Phil would enjoy that, as he likes to commit to a bit.

Well, I always DID want to do an ALIEN parody...

Anyhow, further progress: thanks to Martin here I now have one built Federation rifle and laser cut parts to make 2 more, so I have an accurate model to use as building reference. I have a scene I'd like to shoot for HB7 to fill a gap in the original film, to wit I never showed what happened to 'Flake' himself, other than a throwaway line at the end where he says, " I finally got out of that closet". The gag I wanted to do was to show that the federation didn't actually take him seriously at all, and basically locked him in a closet at star command as a prank, where he was forgotten for years until the 4th season crew shows up.
