'Project London', if you want something done right...
...do it yourself.

Projects fueled merely by talent and passion and not large budgets find the odds of success are stacked against them. But often enough something comes along that catches the eye and makes you sit back for a moment. 

Of the many clips and trailers we have featured in the past year alone the number of do-it-yourselfers popping up with impressive fusions of effects and live action grows all the time and we are adding Project London to that list.

Project London is an independent, no-budget, feature-length, live action movie with vivid, intense, and marrow-vibrating visual effects and animations created with the open source software Blender (and other traditional software) and 250 (or so) worldwide volunteers. It's led by The Triumvirate and set in Seattle, Washington. It will be available for worldwide viewing in its entirety very soon.

Boasting an impressive 650 VFX shots for a no budget film Project London by that number alone matches quite a few Hollywood effects films. The impressive trailer and a couple quick clips are after the break as well as the synopsis for the film.

Nebraska Higgins leads a normal, easy life in Seattle and works as a mechanic at Joint Command's Control Tower. Joint Command is Earth's global police and military force established as a union between old Earth governments and Nalardian refugees and powered by their technology. Nebraska plunges into a world of struggle and intrigue after Joint Command kills his father, a hero known by his large robotic exo-suit, Arizona.

Jerry, (a gas-mask wearing Nalardian), Benin Belabora, (a calm but powerful mastermind), and Xing Xing Fix, (the knitting maven of mayhem), keep Nebraska safe from the pursuing Joint Command whilst trying to recruit him to the London Underground. Meanwhile, Nebraska discovers that the experiments which destroyed the Nalardian's home world have been resurrected, and a force unlike any the universe can imagine is about to be unleashed. Can Nebraska deal with the loss of his father as interplanetary calamities threaten to destroy the world around him? Earth's fate depends on the potential in a young man's heart.

The effects are decent for what it is, it's the faux 90's grunge music that made the trailer grating.
