Steven Thompsonberg and his crack team of machinima artists shooting a scene from the forthcoming production “Tommy and Barry Go Back”. This is the scene where they travel back to 1941 to find Fatty Smith guarding the British nation against invasion whilst four sheets to the wind. All this effort goes to produce a simple shot of two characters looking surprised.

 

Following on from “The Force is With You”, Tommy and Barry inadvertently fire up Inspector Charlie Bells Tardis and head back to the East Cleveland past. Lots of scope here for the schoolchildren, Skinningrove History Group, Cleveland Ironstone Mining Museum etc etc.

Then after these opening shots;

TOMMY AND BARRY STAND IN FRONT OF TIMMS COFFEE HOUSE

BARRY: HEY TOMMY, THEY’VE GONE OFF AND LEFT THAT TARDIS STANDING THERE.

TOMMY: SO THEY HAVE BARRY, ANY COUPLE OF IDIOTS COULD JUST WALK IN AND START IT UP.

BARRY: AND IF I REMEMBER RIGHTLY, THAT THING CAN TRAVEL THROUGH TIME AND SPACE.

TOMMY: WE’D BEST LEAVE IT ALONE THEN BARRY.

long pause …………

BARRY: WELL PERHAPS JUST A QUICK LOOK

THEY GO INSIDE

TOMMY: HEY BARRY IT’S QUIT ROOMY IN HERE

BARRY: HMM, A BIT CLAMMY ALL THE SAME

TOMMY: I’LL JUST SWITCH ON THIS AIR CONDITIONING THEN. (PULLS SWITCH)

BARRY: NO TOMMY, NO !!!!!!

TOMMY: OH ‘ECK BARRY I THINK WE’RE GOING BACK

BARRY: AND NOT TO THE FUTURE TOMMY, WE’RE GOING BACK TO THE PAST

TOMMY: OH NO, OUR LASS WILL KILL ME WE’RE SUPPOSED TO GO SHOPPING ON WEDNESDAY

 

The community animation event in Saltburn on Thursday was a tremendous successes with a full house for the matinee (in which we hooked up with children and police in Latvia) and around 80 people for the evening event. We even made it onto Latvian National TV !

You can relive the event on the blog at www.saltburn.org.uk or if you really want to re-run the event in the order it happened click here ( it builds slow but quickly gets media rich) – just read each page, scrolling down and then click “older entries” at the bottom.
The event saw the world premier of “The Force is With You” which you can enjoy below.

 

 

 

 

 

Robbie Dingo launched the Teesside University SL campus. I could not be there as I had a Machinima workshop but went along inworld with a bunch of rookie movie makers and shot the scene.

 

After the launch of Teeslife the participants stayed around to shoot this video on campus. This is a work in progress and needs more audio post production.

 

This is a movie made in a recent workshop with Jack Drum Arts with their friends and associates. It is a three camera shoot.

 

A movie produced in a JISC Northern workshop at the Institute of Digital Innovation. 14 participants spent a day producing this piece of Machinima.

 

Here are two short clips from a forthcoming production “THE JOURNEY”
