Title: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Steven Sterlacchini on 17 February, 2009, 10:04:28 am
I can't find the original thread about our film, but it was so old that I thought I'd start a new one anyway.

If you don't know, we are making a Judge Dredd based fan film. It's based on a character called Judge Minty who appeared many years ago. Created by John Wagner and Mick McMahon. An aging Judge who is forced to 'retire' from the streets, mainly it seems because he has become too compassionate. He chooses to take 'The Long Walk' into the Cursed Earth, there "to take law to the lawless". The film will be based around his first experiences in the radioactive wastes.

Amongst all the fun of Hi-Ex! meeting great people and long chats about Dredd etc.we managed to take some snap shots of our Judge Minty costume test. McWild has now sprinkled some magic over them.

Plus, here is a new Mega Cityscape by McWild.

Just wonderful!

The costume is superb- and was the first thing people saw when they entered the dealers room. I only caught a glimpse of the actor in costume while he was chatting with the Stormtroopers.

And that cityscape was an amazing image- I think it was a guy, who's board name I can't remember from the SFX board who won it.

Surely this thread should be stickied and linked to every time the new Dredd movie comes up and someone says that you have to redesign the uniform because it doesn't work outside the pages of the comic?

Fantastic stuff. Absolutely awesome. You guys deserve medals, or something.

That costume is just perfect. I don't know how much post-production has gone into those shots, but the colours are spot on - the green gloves and pads and the gold accessories are often too bight and, make replica uniforms look a bit, well, silly, but those muted colours are superb. He looks so much more like a real Judge than Stallone with his mega-budget ever did!
Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Steve Green on 17 February, 2009, 01:16:16 pm
Cheers for the kind comments, Dan did an awesome job on the costume, Steve S went beyond the call of duty sorting it all out, and Harry looked great as Minty.

Yeah, there's a fair bit of post going on, the pads are a dull bronze and fairly muted green, which we thought would be not too garish - the red is the only bright colour really.

Dan's still tweaking the costume, the bagginess of the leathers is the main thing to fix, but we're pretty pleased with the look so far.

Cheers

I was increadably impressed with all of this - not sure who it was who was showing me the work done so far on the laptop, (el-lopo I assume?), but it's great - props, sets, 3d design, storyboards, how to make the shoulderpads work, what kind of sound design and colour scheme would work for the cursed earth. I really hope this project succeeds: it certainly deserves to.

As you should be it looks amazing. Have to say I quite like the bagginess of the costume, given the story. Minty is a Judge past his prime who's not the man he used to be, slowing up and therefore the loose look of the costume really emphasizes a Judge past his best, as though he once filled it but no longer can.

Just a thought?

Amazing.  And a good look for the holster too.  Eight links on the chain... hmm, nothing in the regs about it, so I'll let it pass this time.  Seriously though, an amazingly good look.

Looks amazing - though I can't help but think "Minty" is a damn stupid name and you'd be better off going against canon and calling him something that couldn't be misinterpreted as a type of mouthwash.

Best of luck to you!

Post by: Queen Firey-Bou on 17 February, 2009, 04:12:08 pm
yup these pics look amazing, the best Inverness has looked for a while.

I thought the gear was fantastic every detail is pure quality, I felt the not skin tightness of the suit was appropriate for an older rangy character, even if he has only been out in the cursed earth a wee while, he's going to loose weight & dehydrate fast. The whole thing is fantastic, I can't wait to watch the project progress.

re the name- er, who wrote the original ? shall we write & complain ? in fact they've spelt Dredd wrong, lets get them to change that while we're on.

The helmet is fantastic!!! Although it looks a bit too 'new', needs roughed up like the rest of the outfit.

What stage are you at in the production of this?

There's nothing wrong with the name minty and if it comes to it (which I don't think it should) I'll be there with those whom are " Keeping it Minty!"

The name brings up the old strip and this is obviously the whole feel of the idea and the actor and uniform bring out so much of the McMahon in the story.

Is that the early Justice building? Or is the Minty saga set post-apocolypse?

Yeah, it's the Grand Hall of Justice, I just nabbed a design from the Art of Dredd book, time-wise it's supposed to be pre-apoc war, but Minty has a Lawgiver MKII, so we're taking a bit of licence.

Fantastic.

I'm very impressed by the helmet. Normally, the nose is covered in the comic, but somehow is looks more realistic to see it uncovered (Ezquerra always draws Dredd's nose incredibly flat, which is probably the only it would work in the comic).

The shoulder pads look a practical size, too, although the one in the second picture looks like the corner comes down lower on the chest - are you using more than one?

Regards

Robin

I think it's just the angle, I haven't seen it in the flesh, not sure how repositionable the pads are - I did wonder if maybe the eagle should be a bit higher so it and the other pad are a bit more level...

Thanks again for the great comments.

Here's a link to the costume before colour correction. We will hopefully be using some of the same techniques for the finished film.

The pads can be repositioned a bit, however the difference in the shots is due to camera angle.

Just...fantastic... If the Film looks like this I for one, would be thrilled.. Great job Guys!!

I like the baggy suit..one of my favourite McM covers in the painted 'Tales of the Mega City (Titan books), where Dredd's wearing a suit 3 times to big... gives it a slightly utilitarian look..  
  The more fitted X men Film style skin tight suits just look naff.

Thanks for the support.

The bagginess looks worse in the flesh, especially at the back. We want to fit them better, not skin tight, but fitted. We also want lose the newness and add plenty of McM creases and wear. Like Minty has had them for years.

The idea that he has lost a bit of weight/muscle in his old age is intriguing.

I agree for the same reasons. I also think the name is a bit silly, but I kind of like the idea of a tough-guy having it for that reason. (I guess I'm easily amused.)

Looks very good. Only one little nitpick is the join at the bottom of the magazine. I understand it's made from two pieces, and you probably can't get around that, but if it could be disguised that would be great. If not, really not a big deal.

I'm probably going to seem dumb now, but I don't know much about these things. Was the fireburst from the gun a post production thing? Or can the gun actually fire blanks? I'd assume the former but, as I said, I don't know much about these things. I know that a lot of sci-fi guns are actually built around the real thing.

It's a decent chunky looking weapon though, just the right size I'd imagine. Looks a lot like the (also decent) Termight version, although it looks bigger to me.

As for the uniform, I'll admit I'm one of those who felt the Judge uniform should be altered for 'real world practicality' in the Judge Dredd film. (Although in my defence, I always saw the alteration to be an interpretation still based on the old design.)  That picture has proven how good the original can look on screen though. Apart from the looseness (which I actually don't think is a bad idea. The close fitting version int eh comics tends to look rather Lycra super-hero like to me.)it's pretty much spot on.

Far be it for me to argue with John Wagner ;)...

WRT the Hall of Justice, nothing's set in stone. Although the film is poop, I didn't want to dismiss everything from it, after all it did have a few tooth artists working on concepts.

I had a look at the McMahon version from the Day the Law Died, and it's not particularly iconic, lots of spherical shapes and an eagle sign.

I'm going to have a look at Henry's and Jock's buildings and see what I can *cough* nab *cough*

The muzzle flash was added in post, and will be for the movie. All the pyro stuff will be done in post I would think for safety's sake, but that's Steve S's call.

Not entirely sure how convincing the actor can make it kick, I did think about using fishing wire or something so it's an external force.

Either that or jam a rocket down the barrel :)

Never mind safety, I think you're legally obliged to have an Armourer on the payroll if your weapons have unblocked barrels, open chambers and working firing pins (all necessary to shoot blanks, IIRC*).

Just wanted to add my support to your project. It looks amazing. That said, I'm more impressed by you choice of Judge Minty as a character. I think the Judge Minty story was the first in the collected case files where I thought, THIS is what Mega-city is about. It had the sorrow that seems to underlie the best Wagner stories.

Looks very professional .V V V good cityscape.No problems with the baggy uniform as it is appropriate in this case but i wouldnt normally go for that look as a rule.Its probably very obvious to say that he looks a bit too clean and dust free to have spent much time in an irradiated wasteland.V convincing serious/slightly sad looking actor who has a look of resignation but very wise looking.Good screen presence .One other criticism/observation is the gold chain on the uniform.Its not right at all.

I think that the recoil would be far less with the lawgiver than with present day weapons. I'm pretty sure I read somewhere there is some kind of recoil absorption technology in the gun so it probably wouldn't kick  that much. That being said, I understand showing recoil can be as much for dramatic effect than anything, but I don't think it matters that much as long as all the rest of the stuff is right.  Epsecially considering the fact that judges tend to fire their weapon in one hand rather than two handed (or second hand holding wrist) like police officers.
Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Steven Sterlacchini on 18 February, 2009, 09:52:14 am
Yep, definitely no firing weapons of any kind.

Getting filming permission is hard enough. Armourers, Police, Insurance, it would more than double the budget.

Even when film companies use real firing weapons they often enhance them in post anyway.

We'll probably experiment with the 'kick' to see what looks best. I was thinking different recoils and sounds for different rounds?

Congratulations on the work so far. Looks outstanding. Very exciting.

I'm sure this has been discussed a thousand times on this board, but looking at those pics makes me wonder why Judges still appear in a blue costume in print? Or is the question: why do they appear in black in film? Should we just accept Judges as the boys and girls in (dark) blue. I know this has been a weird comic colouring convention for years (eg the Blue Black Panther) but seems no reason for it now.
Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Steve Green on 18 February, 2009, 01:34:17 pm
It's just a convention, like Superman's hair have blue tints in it.

If you look at Ezquerra or Bolland colour Dredds they both keep it black, no blue at all.

Steve

We did discuss bringing the portable green screen down to Bristol for background characters on pedways etc. and then shoot some people against it.

The main thing is having the look like citizens rather than just comic fans in t-shirts :)

:shock:

Thing is, I'm not sure you'd ever really get to see below the knees...

I need to have a chat with Steve and Dan about what the best approach is for Bristol - the portable screen is OK for the waist up, but it's a bit of a pain if you want to get the feet in.

Also if you want anyone walking, then you need a couple of people to carry the screen behind the person.

Got a couple of ideas though.

You could rotoscope everyone and be able utilise natural lighting etc. Caution: only use if you have the patience of a saint.

Post by: Steve Green on 18 February, 2009, 10:07:25 pm
Yep, I could. But I'm not gonna. :) It would take too much time to justify - there will no doubt be some manualy rotoscoping for some hero shots, but I'm going to avoid it if I can.

I really want to get as many people as I can, shot separately with about a minute of each - you can get pretty good results from outdoor lighting, it's more a case of a big enough coloured background...

If only they were holding it at IKEA...

The location's aren't set in stone yet.

We have something lined up in Yorkshire, which is great for me and a potential location in North Wales.

However, I think the Chroma Key work will possibly be produced in the south. We've sourced some facilities and it will be more convenient for Dan and Steve.

We're planning to do some shots with the characters and the bike, just to see how they work together (in fact we've already done one, but the bike came out super-shiny)

I didn't have anything to do with the cover, so I can say it is blinding without being immodest - I'm not a huge fan of photo covers to be honest, but El Lopo came up with the idea of classic poses, and I love the result.

What I like about Dan's costume is that the pads aren't too big - I still haven't seen the costume in motion yet, but it looks pretty damn good in stills so far.

Playing devils advocate, unless we see Minty riding a lawmaster -  and I think all long walk Judges er.. walk (hence the term: the long walk)  :D - there's little point doing extensive drawings of the bike, fantastic as they look. I think the people concerned should concentrate on the actual filming, scouting for locations etc. I think this fan film has been in pre-production for ages so perhaps it's time to forget how the bike looks. But I wish you good luck. :)

I'm sure some fans will say "Dredd was on a lawmaster when he took his long walk."

Oh, damn!  :P

I doubt they'll make that as an actual real life bike. Good luck proving me wrong! :D

I know what you mean about not wanting to diss the project, but there does seem to be a lot of emphasis on the cool costume design and photoshopped graphics rather than...err...anything else that is needed to make a movie.

Even if this is never actually going to happen as a movie, and it's just a bunch of fans having a great time making authentic costumes, more power to you! Is there any news about a script or casting? Is this movie actually going to be made? I really don't want to be a wet blanket, but I don't want to get TOO excited about something that looks absolutely fantastic (and it DOES!) but turns out to be nothing but geeks making fan costumes.

Yeah, we had a good meeting with the actor who's down to play Minty.

The main thing is trying to keep a balance between keeping people interested, and not wanting to give a drip-drip of information which basically shows everything and kills any surprises.

Script is done, storyboarding is underway, we've got a location booked for some scenes in the Meg, (which is what the lawmaster is for), we've visited a couple of possibles for the Cursed Earth.

I'm building CGI set extensions for the Meg and the Cursed Earth.

We've also been getting costumes and props for the other characters.

We'd all love to show more, but don't want to show too much either - the more we give away the less new stuff you'll see in the final film.

Cheers

Auditions and stuff are not down to me, Steve S (El-Lopo) is away this weekend, we're looking at shooting some green screen crowd elements for scenes in the Meg, and a bunch of characters for the Cursed Earth scenes.

Since we don't know exactly where the Cursed Earth is going to be, personally I think we should get that firmed up before auditions, since it might have a bearing on people's availability depending on the location.

Just please assure us that this will be better than the best Star Wars fan film. The fact that you stated that you met with an "actor" is a great first indication that you are approaching this the right way; nowadays anyone can create fancy special effects, but the story and characters are what counts!

So make this one of the few fan films that are worth watching! BTW, has anyone seen the Solomon Kane fan film floating around youtube - that's the standard imo. Hopefully these fellows can knock it down.

At last a proper announcement.

CASTING CALL FOR:
- Monday December 14th at a Sheffield Location

CAST
- Required, 6 Mega City One Criminals (The Kovaks Mob)
- Please provide a simple picture of yourself for reference and rough measurements (to tailor the costumes)
- Please let us know any relevant experience (amateur dramatic, futuristic criminality)
- We would like to keep your details on file as other parts will become available later
- Plus there will be a chroma key studio session in London, 'penciled' in for January Saturday 16th

CREW
- Make-up
- Wardrobe
- Grips and other location personnel
- Crew will not need to commit to the London studio shoot

Please send your details to: steves@thespiritof.co.uk

Hopefully we will not have to reschedule, but if we do, we will understand if you can't re-commit.

I am also delighted to announce that main role of Judge Minty has been cast. Edmund Dehn has generously offered to help us out (real proper paid work committing). It will require us to work around his schedule, but it's worth it, as he's perfect for the part.

Edmund Dehn looks fantastic! Errr even if we don't get cast will you be able to give the location at some point as being nerdy and based in Sheffield I'm thinking I mmight pop down to the shoot or would that just be really annoying?

COMMANDO FORCES, I've already got a suitable picture of you. If you can make the date, just send an email to the address to apply (for my files).

Colin, if you don't get cast as an actor, we may still need help with crew, if you're up for it?

Is Shell Beach still a definite option for the cursed earth look?

Is just that the impression I got when looking at the short promo of it. Like it was some location being made up to look like another completely different location.

Anyway, if Spaine's too far/expencive. I guess that place might have to do then.

Besides I was thinking it looks like nice place to holiday.

Shell Beach that is.

Not Cursed Earth.

BTW, Shell Beach, not far from Worms head, and Snow Donn, if you look at you google earth maps and if you consider that whole of Wales isn't difficult place to traverse.

Ideal places to be doing a Slaine fan film instead.

Really looking forward to seeing more of this.

I was actually rather interested about going to the casting call (I'm not all that bad an actor, got a C in AS Drama), but alas, I think it's just a little too far out of my way to get there. Oh well. 
Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Steven Sterlacchini on 06 November, 2009, 08:45:53 pm
Hi Christov, it was a digital casting call. We are actually filming on the 14th.

Shell beach probably won't happen, as we've managed to get 'provisional' permission to shoot at Dinorwig, still north wales though. I believe they've just filmed some bits of the new Clash of the Titans film there.

Colin, not sure it's for nowt you'll almost definitely get some screen time. Unless you mean money in which case you're correct, it's for nowt  ;D.

I was about add before, there must be a quarrey around there somewhere.

(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_O6xLvXpZlOU/StROSzmXPuI/AAAAAAAACR4/gWhECHJWRwY/s320/clashtitansmagazines6.jpg)

No doubt your computer people will apply some finshing touches that would complete the illusion of mostly barren wastlands. Areas of which are soured by toxic fallout.

The power station looks like it would make another industrial location for the city itself.

How iintestring it is that this quarry in wales was chosenfor another laction in the Clash of the Titans remake. It says here.....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dinorwic_Quarry (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dinorwic_Quarry)

......that it's also location for Willow

I should go watch that -- we have it on DVD-- to get some idea of how well that particular locale was implemented.

I've only got a few more people to send emails to, from those that applied.

Only about a douzen people sent their details, which is fair enough as we are asking people to give up their time for free, and it's on a work day.

I think I might have also confused quite a few people, who thought it was the auditions that are taking place on the 14th of December. I was actually asking people to send pictures and details by email, we are in fact shooting scenes for the film on the 14th of december.

A big thanks to everyone who applied, hopefully most people should get some kind of screen time.

Considering you mentioned this:

- Plus there will be a chroma key studio session in London, 'penciled' in for January Saturday 16th

Would you have any casting requirements for this too? I understand that this deals mainly with technical stuff, I just wondered if extras might be required for blue/green screen (or equivalent) type work, etc, or is this purely post production stuff?

After watching the third Alien.

I thought the exterior locations use to depict the foundry and penal colony on Fiorina 'Fury' 161 would make a pefect locale for cursed earth and surprisingly it turns out that it's some beach in Northumberland, UK.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103644/locations (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103644/locations)

You might to to check out that particualr spot.

Though, I suspect that it mighthave be topuched up a fair bit during the editing process.

Mind you, If the spot that has been already chosen to look just as desolate, harsh, unforgiving, incapable of supporting mere mortals then I guess itmight just do.

There's a few at the start. Most of the exterior footage is on the Assembly cut though. And terrific it looks too. Mostly sea scenes though but there is a sense of barrenness, which might be what Tryllseekyr is referring to.

Post by: ThryllSeekyr on 19 November, 2009, 01:45:10 am
I didn't mean to waste anybody's time, but what I really meant was what was done with the exterior photography I guesss.

If theere any coast lne in those shots, then I wasn't takingmuch notice of it.

I can't find a good picture of it anywhere....

Except this, not so sure about the radar dish.

(http://farm1.static.flickr.com/231/484919995_b015b3ca3b.jpg)

 buit I was quite satified that what I saw seemed prety much cursed to me.

I thought the foundry interior location, and alot of the penal colony iterors would make a excelent double as the Mega City One, RESYK plant. With some addjustments.

Even Mega City City one prison facility wouldn't be much of a stretch.

Ah yes.

Steve Green is sprinkling some of his digital magic over one of the photographs. I was waiting for that image before posting about it here and on the facebook group, but seeing as you mention it...

Renowned Artist and Judge Dredd favourite, Greg Staples has kindly offered to play the part of the man himself in our film. Although Dredd will only be making a small cameo and will only be shown in shadow, blurred or extreme close up, we are very lucky that Greg has the correct look for a young Joe. It's also a nice touch for fellow fans. Cheers again Greg!

Greg also managed to call by when we were blocking the the shootout scene at a Sheffield location. We also had time for a quick costume check, see picture.

Well home from the Minty shoot and what a fun day it was. Everyone involved seemed to have a blinding day and have to say its looking more and more exciting the more and more bits I see.

The folks involved are all not only very pleasent but also incredibly passionate about the project. A freezing day, for many (not me lucky!) a good while of which was spent laying on cold concrete somehow was incredibly good fun. Ed Dehn is a real gent and Greg Staples is a scarely good Dredd, even with his posh Yorkshire accent.

Steve and all his crew, Dave and other Steve are really fun, welcoming and nice to work. They all worked so hard and the costume and props from Dan and Barry were superb. The Kovaks Gang looked suitably grim and grizzly and all died with great gusto. I'm really excited to see footage when it comes. For the time being however when the rest of the boarders get home (they travelled from so far afield, I just hopped on the no. 69 bus!)who are all as nice in real life as they are here, I'm sure they'll post a host of the photos which I'm likewise looking forward to. I'm afraid I only had my camera phone with me so have next to none to share - sorry.

If anybody is able to get to any of the other shoots when they are arranged I can't recommend it highy enough.

Grand day out.

14th December 2009

03:00 yes folks 03:00 the alarm goes off in the forces household, it’s time to get up for the JUDGE MINTY film shoot. I get ready and post a few bits on the forum and off I go to meet Large48 at Northampton services at 05:30 and it’s pouring down all the way there.

 I picked Guy up (Large48) and we continued on to the shoot, arriving at the location just after 07:00 and scoped the area out. We then went to a local café and had an English breakfast before an arduous days shooting. On arriving back everyone was making introductions and we met our fellow forum members and the production crew. By the way, amazingly it had stopped raining (only to start again heavily when we left though).

 We then went inside the MAGNA building and started to get into our costumes and walked down to the shooting location. Steven went through the storyboards and we watched a few pieces being filmed and then went back into the warmth until we were needed.

 During this time we all geeked out and chatted about what we were doing and how happy we all were to be involved. Soon after it was back to the shoot and prepare ourselves for the action sequences. But before we could all be despatched to Resyk we watched Banners and Edmund do their scenes and then Gregg and Edmund do theirs.

 I won’t say much about the story or post any pictures of any of the action sequences as that would spoil the surprise for everyone. Lets just say we all died well and I even managed to break my goggles upon my death.

 During the shooting of our deaths we had various shots to get in the can which included distance shots, group close ups and individual shots which all took time but seemed to fly by as it was so entertaining, we did keep joking between shots which also helped. We even managed to get Nick a word on screen (the jammy git) before he had to depart.

 Just watching how Steven and his team methodically went about the shoot was extremely interesting and I can’t thank them enough for letting us be involved.

 I did notice some rubbish strewn across the area and wondered why it was left there, well it was special Mega City One rubbish (which me and Guy shared and took home, I know, I can’t help it)

 Well all good things come to an end and the shoot was finished so me and Guy quickly sped off to get some shots wearing the Minty outfit (we just wore the jacket upwards as we didn’t want to take up too much time as everyone was wanting to get home). After that we all said our goodbyes and thanked Steven and his team again for a most enjoyable and interesting day.

Here are a few shots taken through the day and like I said earlier there are no scene shots so as not to spoil it for anyone.

As you can see from the pictures it was a happy shoot and everyone was extremely generous with their time. A few of us pestered poor Daniel to make some outfits for us (have a guess who) so you never know!

All that’s left is to say roll on the screening and again thanks to the crew for all their hard work.

P.S. I’m sure I’ve forgotten some stuff but I’m sure other members of the Kovaks gang will add their say to help out.

First of I like to say a MASSIVE thank to everyone who contributed on the day of filming.

I was expecting enthusiasm, but was blown away by the amount of professionalism and commitment. Not one single negative word regards the amount of time spent on the floor, or the number of retakes.

I was also very pleased with the useful input from everyone, which added a bit of extra depth to the gang scene.

Some highlights...

- Edmund's performance, we had a quick review of the footage, it's really paid off getting a pro for the part.
- Greg's Dredd work looks great on camera.
- Steve Green' camera work, I was amazed by the quality and composition.
- Daniel's costumes props and his hidden talents as make-up artist.
- Barry's suggestions and eye for continuity.
- CommandoForces getting hit full blast by a bike cannon (believe it or not I told people to take it easy when they fell), he looks like he was hit by an elephant gun.
- Darren Beddows getting shot also looks like and insanely painfully fall.
- Nick Eklan expanding his part like a real pro
- Simon (Judge) Palmer as winner of the most smartly dressed gang member (definitely taking more than is fair share of the cut)
- Guy as the tough guy who seems to have managed to get himself into nearly all the gangs shots, another pro obviously.
- David's stills of the day and CCTV footage with Colin, Mark and Gregs brother which I'm dying to see.
- Colin's stunt doubling for Edmund.

I've missed a ton of stuff out, which will come to me later, but all in all a great success, I can now relax (a bit) in time for Christmas.

I'll have a run through the stills etc. and see what is appropriate to publish. It's not that we are ultra secretive, I'll pretty much show anything to people in person, but once it's on the net, it's basically published and official.

Steven

Many many thanks go to Steven, Steve Green, Daniel, Barry and the rest of the team for making the 14th December for me, the best day of 2009. I throughly enjoyed being given the chance to play a part in this project, and admire the passion and dedication you have brought to your project Steven. It certainly showed on the day.

It was great meeting Edmund, chatting with him and watching him become Judge Minty when he put on the costume. A true professional indeed.

It was also great meeting Greg and getting the chance to speak with him, as well as watch him lift Judge Dredd from the comic's and bring him to life.

Seeing the Judges costumes up close and personal I congratulate Daniel on a superb job well done in bringing the costumes to life on a professional and practical level. I look forward to seeing more great models, props and costumes from you in the near future Daniel. If I can get my second attempt at a Judge Costume close to your standard I will be pleased :)

Thanks to the other guys of the Kovacks Gang (you know who you are) for the fun, experience and 'geek' sharing of everything Dredd and 2000AD. :D

Thanks again Steven for the opportunity, myself and i'm sure many others look forward to seeing the professional shots, stills that David took during the day and of course the finished film itself. I'm sure that you and the team will receive much praise, rewards and addulation when your finished film is shown. ;D

All the best, Simon

This all makes me hideously sad that me and Mrs Blue Thing were unable to attend (impossible for me to get time off, due to the current situ at work and herself is in final prep for the Big Show at the weekend).

It looks absolutely fantastic! Can't wait to see the finished doodah, and hopefully to have something to do (even if just accompanying the lady) for the next bit of shooting.

I hope you all enjoyed the company of the frankly magnificent Mr Edmund Dehn- who is EXACTLY what all actors should be like, and should be the template of anyone contemplating a career in the industry. More Dehns and fewer Dyers and the world would be a better place.

CF- the file you just sent me via text unfortunately doesn't play on my made-of-wood-and-poo phone! Argh!

Post by: Colin YNWA on 15 December, 2009, 02:05:38 pm
- Colin's stunt doubling for Edmund.

Now see this was my favourite bit of filming of the day. Steven was after someone to get dressed up in Minty's uniform and do some falling down bits after Edmund had left. I don't think anybody wanted to scream 'Me me pick me' and so we all shuffled a bit until lo and behold Steven suggested me. Well the other folks didn't get a chance to make any other suggestions or ideas as in a flash I was like nerding out "Yeah yeah I'll do it me me yeah yeah" and practically dragging Dan away to get me into costume.

It almost went pear shaped as Steven being the total gent he is was worried that I might get hurt falling on my arse. The next few sentences were probably a little unintelligable as I scrambled to make sure they fully understood it wasn't a problem and since I used to play in nets I was used to throwing myself around. I stopped short of pointing out to get to do that I'd have jumped from any number of the tall structures in the area.

The end result was me getting into the uniform getting back to the set and rather rudely all but demanding someone take a photo in my excitment. I then tried to fall on my arse as convincingly as possible which only serves to teach me how difficult seeming easy things are. I was personally much happier with my close-up hand and foot dragging work and will happily stand-in for any artor in the future if they need any... well close up work of someone dragging their hands and feet after being shoot. I know its a niche market and all but hey!

I was really please after my complete excitment died down that Commandoforces and Large48 got to try out the uniforms as they had travelled about 76769 miles to be there and probably deserved to do it more than me! Still it would seem the chance to be an arse falling double brings out the selfnerd in all of us... well me then...

Arrest these Creeps for loitering with intent inside a public building.

15 years - No parole.

Justice department agents - Fraternising and associating with known Felons is an arrestable offence and a clear breach of Justice Dept guidelines and protocols.

Stay where you are.The SJS will be along shortly.

You are all going down Creeps !

Hi folks,
I just wanted to add my own thanks to everyone for mucking in for us on the day.
Its been a slog to get to this point, and actually the positive comments from many of the members on here have been a fantastic morale booster for me...
Me and Steve drove up from London the day before and still it was a really long day for everyone but it was great to see everyone meet up for the first time and muck around, and then to go super-serious when needed, it was brilliant ;-)

Ill sign off by saying that I got to see the digital equivalent of the rushes from the day and the footage we have is brilliant ;-)
Its also worth noting too that what we shot on Sunday will probably only amount to about three minutes of the Short, so there's plenty more where this is coming from!
Dan.
PS A last big thanks to Steve's wife for those well needed Sarnies !

The dedication, craft, attention to detail and general professionalism that went into the shoot - from direction and acting to props and costuming left some of the bigger, budgeted productions I've witnessed and worked on in the shade.

More power to you.

Great day had by all by the sound of it!

Thanks to CF for driving up there (and collection discussions on the way) and Steve and all the crew for an excellent Geek Boy day.

Food and hot drinks needed by all so thanks for that as well.

A miracle it didn't rain / sleet or snow while we where all lying on the ground.

Extremely good production all round, great costumes, I'm trying to sort my order out! (mind you Greg's one was very tight on me) and all in HD.

Steve being open to suggestions etc, even if my tower shot never got into it, sniff! LOL

My favourite character of the day being Billy Bob! ah hun, although the Fly (by Hugo Boss) was a very close second!   ;)

Simon managing to get a line in it after being so pants that us look out gang members had to tell him what was going on!

And it's 4 barrels on that gun!!!!!!

The end of the year is doable.

Filming will be finished this year either way. It will probably be a case of when we want to finish post production. I know Steve Green has a lot of ideas that really improve story and drama. On a few shots I can't even believe I was there when we filmed, it's moved so far away from the original footage.

Can we just turn up? Or would you prefer the usual photo shot before?

Sorry I need to keep track of how many people we've got. So I need photos and details for reference.

The photos are mainly just for assigning possible costumes and to help me know who is who.

When we did the 'city bottom' shoot, we had a rough idea of who could play who before we started, even though we changed it and Dan adapted the costumes on the spot to create more interesting 'characters'.

We've had a great response so far.

Just to let people know that I'll probably be waiting a couple of days before responding, so that I can do a lot in one go and have an idea of how many we've got.

Thanks again. Keep 'em coming.

I know a possible mutant in North Wales who's wondering if you only want bloke mutants or are you also looking for lady mutants?
Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Steven Sterlacchini on 29 June, 2010, 11:47:50 pm
It won't really make a difference, as many of the mutants have fully or partially covered faces.

Only a few are gender specific, so lady mutants would be fine.

I suppose the main thing will be if ladies require accommodation (If she's already in North Wales, probably not). The accommodation we are getting is basically a bunk house, not individual rooms. I suppose If we have enough female extras, we could allocated male and female rooms. It's not something I'd thought about, but I'm sure I could work it out.

Not enough :)

The plan is to shoot 2 story scenes over the weekend and some generic Meg action that can be used for populating shots, or integrated into CCTV shots of Mega-city life.

The CCTV stuff will be quite small and processed so it's not going to be easy to identify individuals. Hopefully by swapping elements of costumes and randomising colours it will enable me to build up a crowd library.

This is also going to include Judges arresting perps, hassling cits etc.

I also want to shoot some elements for techs in the West Wall hanger used for the Long Walk ceremony.

Hi everyone, 'The Fly' is back  :lol: Unfortunatly I cannot make the London shoot due to work commitments. Have a great shoot and I look forward to seeing some great action shots of old faces (you know who you are) and new faces taking part.

Haven't been on here for awhile due to losing internet access, then getting it back, then virus attacks on the PC etc. all in all not a good experience :'(

Hope to see a few of you at London Comic Con on the 17th and 18th July, i'll be going on the 17th hopefully wearing my newly made Batman Costume if it isn't too hot of course!

Another excellent day from the Judge Minty team.

Lets see, I shall only post a few pics, drip, drip, drip as we don't want to spoil it all. But before that (never start a sentence with but, that's what my English teacher told me) a little about the shoot. I arrived 15 ish minutes past 8 and wandered down to the studios. Quite an easy place to find and I met Large48 first and then everyone else turned up (we like to be early).
Now it was down to business.......... After business we all went home, stinking  :-[

Anyway here are the pics!

Halo Jones was on set

Just got back to York. It was fantastic, many thanks to all involved for letting us be part of this brilliant experience.

My favourite part of the day was talking to the actor who plays Minty. When I asked him how he ended up with the role, part of his reply was something along the lines of; "At my age, if someone offers you a role where you get to ride a massive bike, then stab someone in the groin with a knife you've just pulled from your boot, you take that role!"

Seeing Dredd gleefully stomping around being Dredd was awesome too, as was getting to wear certain bits of costume myself!

In fact, seeing one of the scenes from Minty's original comic appearance gets a high score as well. Ah, forget trying to figure out which bit was best, it was all amazing!

Great to meet fellow boarders and put faces to names.
This film is going to be fantastic and it was a joy to be involved and meet so many great people. Everyone was cool and I had an awesome time.

He is, and was originally coming to shoot one scene put had to pull out because he'd forgotten he had a prior commitment.

So Ben gracefully stood in for Greg, and we're going to pick up shots where it needs to be identifiably Greg.

I thoroughly enjoyed the whole weekend, it was great to see faces from the earlier shoot, catch up with fellow forum members and have a good old chat about anything. Even though it was hot, not once did I see a face without a smile on it, which just goes to show what a good time was had by all on set.
Edmund, ever the gentleman was very gracious with his chats to anyone who wanted to ask him questions about his career and what made him want to be Judge Minty.
The actual film crew were very professional and helpful to all of us extras when it was time for ACTION!

All in all I can't wait for the climactic stuff in Wales, come September. My time is booked off, the missus has forgiven me for missing her aunties 80th and I can't Drokkin' wait!

Oh! by the way, we all stood round Stephen's laptop and watched some stuff from the Kovaks gang scene, that was shot last year. My jaw hit the ground as we watched the 'work in progress' footage. I had goosebumps just thinking about what I watched, as I typed that last bit. It was sorry for the coming swear word, FUCKING STUNNING. I think I can speak for everyone when I say, it was impressive and it's a work in progress.

Me in the uniform!!!

In case any of you are wondering what they are doing behind me, the costumes were one size fits all. So anyone blessed with being... er... younger, had to have the excess material clipped away behind them with great big clippy things.

Hello,
just got back from a location reccy in North Wales (after this weekends shoot in London) so I'm verrrry tired.

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who turned up and helped out. Everyone was professional, friendly and extremely enthusiastic. The footage looks great.

I said it was going to be hectic and it was. It took a real team effort from everyone involved to get all we needed. Thanks again. It will probably take me a couple of days to post something on the blog as there's so much to say. I think I can speak for all us in the crew, when I say we are continually blown away by the massive support we're receiving from fellow fans.

Not sure I'd have been so keen to jump into those leathers, after everyone else, but if it's any consolation I had to air them out in my hotel room over night.

Regards timings.
I've been saying that the very end of this year or early next is doable, but that will depend on lot of things going to plan.

It's a 'not for profit' fan film, so things like that are not allowed.
 
From what Steven has said in the past, the team have been approached to show this at upcoming (obviously) conventions. Then it would be on the web in some form or another for people to watch (no payment will be required).
Rest easy strontium71, you will see this action fest and believe me when I say, the rough stuff that we watched on the laptop will show you that this crew are destined for the big time.
That's not a biased boast, every person who watched the clips was blown away by how good it looked  ;)


Why not have a look at the directors blog and read through all the posts to see what's going on, here it is :- http://judgeminty.blogspot.com/ (http://judgeminty.blogspot.com/)

This crossed my mind as well when looking at the blog. It must cost a pile of money to make something like this so how is it funded and what is the reward for all the hard work and investment (of time, effort and not least cash).

How do you even begin going about financing something like this? Sorry if this sounds overly concerned with mercenary matters but I am curious.

You need to read all the posts in the blog and then you will see where the money came from. Lets just say, dedication  ;)

As to their reward, this will be a showreel encompassing their combined talents. What better way to break into the big time, than to have the complete article to show people.
Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Steve Green on 13 July, 2010, 11:42:12 pm
It's more time than money.

On my side, I already had camera stuff anyway, software, computers etc. Although I have spent money on things I wouldn't have otherwise.

The expense tends to come from location hire, studio hire, accomodation etc. for location hire.

I'm not really fussed about making anything from it, it's just an excuse for me to do something I wouldn't normally get to do.

I can't speak for the others, but there's an element of it being a showcase of their work, e.g. Dan's costume work could lead to non-Dredd work off the back of people seeing it.

So although there is a potential monetary gain of sorts, it's not a massive return on the time invested (which is the biggy), it's more the enjoyment...

Although lugging shitloads of costumes, equipment etc. across London on the hottest day of the year takes the edge off.

Not to mention the jumping through hoops to get locations sorted...

So, anyway it's all been financed between us - we've not got any commercial sponsors, although it has been talked about. But it's a tricky area since it is a fan film and investors would only get their name bandied about rather than something more tangible.

The upside of doing it ourselves is we can do as we please really... but it does cost.

It's up to Steve S really.

Since it would likely end up online, anyone who really wanted to could rip it to a DVD if they really wanted to. I think having it online is better for getting exposure outside of just the physical bundling with the magazine.

In a dream situation it would be a DVD extra on the new Dredd Film.

We may have another chat with Rebellion now we've got some footage under our belt - they were fairly non-committal at the beginning even on the 'is it OK if we do this'...

Distribution outside of festival showings is problematic IMHO, as it'd conflict with DNA Films' sole legal right to adapt the Dreddverse to film, and probably the distributor's rights too.

Although they've sold the rights (I'm assuming!) to make a Dreddverse film the Kingsleys are Producers and may still have a say in whether a not-for-profit fan film is able to be distributed, but it's probably not worth the effort or potential problems.

They could always turn a blind eye, as could any affected party, if they feel it won't actually cause them financial or legal problems.

Also, if someone with the rights wanted to bring the work into the fold (e.g. include it as a DVD extra on the official Dredd film, or use it for some kind of publicity) then that makes things a lot easier, and legally tidy.

Yep, DVD distribution is a minefield.

Our aim is FREE viewing on the web and showing at Convention and Festivals.

Anything else would be in the lap of the gods. It's not something we're relying on.

Of course if you've been involved with the project you will get a DVD for your portfolio/showreel/resumé.

Thanks guys! Re the Minty project, I was briefly fantasising on Sunday about the completed DVD being given away as a cover-mounted disc with the prog. Say for 1750, or whatnot. But I appreciate that may not be possible or desirable, even. But obviously, yes, as an axtra on the eventual DVD release of the new movie would be magnificent.

Though I was slighly dissappointed that there appear to be no merchandising opportunities being discussed. Where are my Judge Minty action figures, trading cards, stickers and pants? Actually, I know where the latter are, CF's wearing them.

Dan did a great job, added some red trim, a shield badge and a mic and antennae.

Since the non-eagle pads are pretty much reversible, and we have two costumes we thought it would be cool to re-purpose the costume.

We still mull over what to show and what not to - all the stuff in there is WIP pretty much, the backgrounds on the lawmaster shots are untextured and it doesn't have a rider in some etc.

It's more a 'this is roughly what it might look like, but better' - bits of my reel getting, erm... edited, forced our hand so we thought an official one needed doing a bit earlier than we'd anticipated.

I daresay CF being a bit harsh on scrawlers will stay in though...

It's fun watching it and seeing the bits we did in London on green screen and seeing it come alive with those amazing backgrounds. Loved seeing Viv and Will the scrawlers getting caught by Judge Burdis.

Yep, that will be it until we're ready to release the finished thing.

There's lots more cool stuff, this is just a glimpse.

As Steve said, this was just introduced because we're noticing a lot more internet chatter about the project and wanted there to be something 'official' from us up, in case people started referencing youtube stuff.

I think it gives a nice impression of where were going.

Thanks for the great response, it's a great encouragement to keep going.

Yeah, there's going to be a lot of dubbing at the end - the CCTV have a particular role to play, we shot a fair bit in the green screen studio, but ideally I'd like to do a lot more of it.

I wouldn't expect the CCTV to be that glitchy in the final one, it's more just hiding the fact that they're kind of rushed together, I want to put a lot more effort into the background of them.

Cheers

Post by: SmallBlueThing on 24 August, 2010, 08:27:54 am
Yep, my only worry now is that as time goes on, and the urban movie moves deeper into production (and make no mistake, its going to race through production to keep costs low) the south african footage will take the shine off Minty to some degree. I guess its down to the design, as Minty really IS 'the comic, come to life', while there's every chance Urban's Dredd will be filtered through another committee. We'll see. I just wish you guys were working on this full time! Ive seen a lot of 'fanfilms' over the years, and this is the only one that doesnt betray its origins. I just want it, now, so i can show it to everyone i know.
Incidentally, its immediate impact on my boys was to send them running upsstairs for their Dredd and Death action figures, and to bury themselves in LotF and the judge child quest.

I'm looking forawrd to the New official Judge Dredd movie.

If it's released before us, it's inevitable that it will overshadow us. If not we'd be in breech of the 'third rule of Fan Film making' - "don't create competition to official projects"  ;)

One thing in our favour is, that we are most likely following the comic style more closely than they will, so it will be a different take.

We'd probably loose out on a lot of internet chatter, but it might also increase interest, so who knows.

@Emperor - Yeah, considering it's just a WIP teaser it's not bad going. I'm also getting worryingly interested in Youtube insights, studying the stats...

regarding BoingBoing - not as far as I know - I'm always a bit loathe to self-pimp even though I know I should.

Quite happy to bask in the results though, like the dirty hypocrite I am.

There are a number of cool "looking" things all right but none of them fit togther, it's like 3 different films.

Heh, it's funny - I've been tracking the views (a little more than is healthy).

It obviously started with most views being UK based, probably about 90% but it's now pretty much even between the UK and US at around 35% each and Brazil(!) third on 10%

You obviously get tweets about it, but like you say there are spikes when a well-read site features it.

I'm expecting it to tail off now, but I'd be happy to be proved wrong.

Youtube is such a great way to get exposure, I wonder if Rebellion did any new ads would it lead to anything worthwhile with regards to sales in the states now that they seem to be making it more available.

Looking back at the Sci-fi channel ads, I think they just didn't say much about the product.

I don't think so - I just had a mess around with a video on there, and you can upload annotations etc, but it looks like you can only link to content within youtube itself, e.g. channels, other videos.

You can obviously put the URL in the accompanying blurb but it would be nice to have it as a hotlink in the video itself.

I'm in my old work tomorrow, where they did something interactive for a PS game, I'll ask if it's possible.

There have been a few 'interactive' youtube vids going around, a bit like the ancient Dragon's Lair Laserdisc games, it would be quite feasible to do a 'you are a judge' type thing, down to having CCTV clips to spot perps.

Something I'd love to have a crack at once Minty is done and dusted.

Interesting - I think with anything like this, it would need to run under youtube to get any sort of popularity, but I'm not sure how clunky it would be.

with regards to the URLs, it looks like you can upload your own SBV files to edit the captions, so I guess it would be possible to have a URL on there, but I'm not sure if they are clickable.

I'll dig around.

Only just saw the WIP trailer and I'm gobsmacked. Proof indeed that the comic version of the Judges' uniforms can work well on film. Back in 1995 when I first saw stills from the Stallone Dredd movie in Face magazine my heart sunk. But I was grinning with excitement while watching this teaser. Brilliant.

The eagle shoulder pad was one of the most amazing parts of the costume for me. I expected it to be more solid and uncomfortable but the rubber construction and the design make it perfect. I thought the whole costume was very comfortable to wear.

Yeah, we've not really put it through the mill that much - I don't know how much punishment it could take really - the wings seem fairly resilient, but I'm not sure about the head.

The 95 pads looked pretty rigid in comparison, I daresay you'd want something much more flexible if you needed to do any action in it.

There's me, Large48, Judge Palmer (I know those two are going, as I'm picking them up) and Albion.

Anyone?

If I'd remained unemployed for a bit longer, I'd have been in there like a shot.
As it is, even though I'm not *that* far away, I don't think I could reliably commit to it.
Would love to have taken part, though.

16th-19th September - although last I heard the extras wouldn't be needed until the 18th/19th.

I'd need to confirm those dates though.

We have a bunkhouse booked for people who need to stay overnight.

Hi Sorry,
for the delay in responding in this thread.

We've got the ten we need, however if anyone really, really wants to be a part of it and can definitely make it, send me an email.

It's a two day shoot. Though you have be able to get there THIS FRIDAY night to start filming bright and early on Saturday, staying over again on Saturday night and filming again on Sunday. Finished around 5pm Sunday.

The accommodation is VERY basic. There's likely to be a lot of hanging around. And if you're not in a scene it's more than likely you won't be able to watch because of the Health and Safety rules of the location.

Also I can't guarantee you'll get any face screen time one screen, as some of the characters are pretty wrapped up.

As mentioned we are filming near Llanberis, North Wales.

So, to sum up: Great steaming arseholes, and I'll be paying more attention should you ever do a follow-up!

We've all been allocated our outfits and deaths and the Judge Minty stunt double has been chosen?
Everyone has bedded down for the night but our dorm has a person snoring very loudly.

I'm home first as my character wasn't needed today. Had a great time meeting friends old and new.

The location for the cursed earth was amazing and the bits we watched from Saturday's shoot looked great. There were some great performances from the mutant gang.
The weather wasn't too good but we all soldiered on and hid in cars for the worst of it. We got some strange looks from walkers and cyclists as were were hanging around in costume as the stuff we weren't needed for was being filmed.  :D

Post by: COMMANDO FORCES on 20 September, 2010, 05:28:53 pm
WHAT A WEEKEND!

Here's my report (without giving anything away) about what went on.

Friday 09:30 Simon Palmer arrived at the Cellar of Dredd and he we managed to squeeze in a 90 minute tour (still didn't see it all as some stuff is boxed). Now it was off to pick up Guy Robbins and Jason Dee from London and then hit the trek proper. We made good time until we hit Oxford and headed towards Tharg's HQ, the traffic was crap and Guy's knowledge of the location was just not quite up to the task. Luckily I had acquired the number of a certain person and gave them a suprise call, saying that we just needed the final few turns and luckily for us he gave the info.

Next we pulled up outside this bland building and went inside to see one of the massive Dredd/Death statues. Obligatory photo op over, now it was time to talk merchandise with Old Green Bonce himself. Let's just say something is coming but I told him my ideas and where they are going wrong just to help out. We then left and he looked very relieved, I don't know why  ;)

It was then onwards to North Wales and we made good progress until we hit the A5 and sat behind a few cars that didn't want to overtake a Yank military lorry that was heading to some show thingy!

Finally we arrived at about 20:30ish (thanks to Simon's eagle eyes, as he saw the sign for the accom as we drove round a blind bend) and entered Ben's Bunkhouse, Hurrah! Now for the only picture from this report, here is the Bunkhouse.

(http://i159.photobucket.com/albums/t136/commandoforces/Judge%20Minty/P9180015.jpg)

We made our hello's and picked our sleeping areas, some people don't know that you never sleep near the toilets, as that will always in use  :lol: :lol: :lol:
The room me and Simon chose was very quiet as it was a dead end, so there was no need for anyone to walk through it  ;)

Next morning, after a great nights sleep we started to get dressed for our parts and take loads of photos. The outfits looked amazing and everyone strated to get into character while the crew went to the location and started to do stuff with Judge Minty. We all turned up a couple of hours later after a rally car drive up there.

The weather was Welsh but that did not dampen our spirits, as we watched scenes unfold and awaited our call to perform our stuff. We may all be amateurs but let me say that everyone threw themselves into their parts, some more than others (I won't say his name but when you see the film I'm sure you'll know who it was and no it wasn't me). Even with the weather no-one was miserable, as we all enjoyed watching the story unfold with the crew directing scene after scene (this is when Minty was doing his stuff and we all stood watching).

Watching the rushes that evening was amazing, not just because of the quality acting by us lot but the scenery, the colours and all those other filmy things that have correct names but I don't know them!

After a shower two car loads went to Betws-y-coed for some grub and this is when I realised what a tight git Fatboydale is. He persuaded everyone to eat in a hotel full of old people just because it was 2 meals for £10  ::) This was a mile outside of the town and dead, I won't even mention how I embarrassed Dale (I'll leave that up to others).

Anyway we then drove back to the Bunkhouse and the weather was even more Welsh, it did not look good. After more chats and drinking it was time for bed and a few visits to the toilet, just to wake all the people bedding down next to them!

The next morning we prepared for the days shoot and it still didn't look good, due to the weather. Also Albion was not needed for the day and so he drove back to England, after saying his goodbyes! We then drove to the location and decided to just get on with it, due to a key breaking off in a padlock some complications arose but we soldiered on. Today was stunt double time and all the shots that didn't need Edmund. They were rattled off in quick time and the crew called it a day and so we went back to the Bunkhouse around 14:00, I think!

We sat and watched the rushes whilst we ate some grub and we also did some behind the scenes group interviews about the whole project. Then everyone prepared for their drives back. I managed to get a rather large prop into the car, luckily two of my passengers are not as wide as two others and so they sat in the back with this item attacking them! We said our goodbyes to everyone and set off on the drive back. Amazingly the weather was lovely as we crossed the border and I also have 14 days to see if I get a speeding ticket. I reckon I was doing about 35 in a 30 and didn't get the speed down quick enough when I saw the van parked at the side of a building in the distance!

I would also like to thank the crew for allowing all us fans the chance to take part in this amazing film. So that's Steven Sterlacchini the Director, Stephen Green the Director of Photography and Digital Imagery, Daniel Carey-George the Prop and Costume Creator and Barry Renshaw the Storyboards & Concepts artist. Also thanks to Edmund Dehn for his acting skills that really brings his character to life and finally all the fans who keep turning up to be the extras and help out!

I don't think I gave anything away there and by the way I use shower gel, Dale brought the soap  ;)

It wasn't much fun up the mountain. If I could have left earlier, I would have ;)

So far we've filmed in very cold, very hot and now very wet. I think we may have locusts for the next shoot.

Well done all involved. It was a grueling shoot, but not once did any of the guys who turned up moan. It really helped pick up everyones spirits.

Edmund said, "you know if these people were paid actors, they'd all be moaning and whining about the conditions."

The enthusiasm and creative input from everyone was essential. There was some brilliant ad-libbing which made some of the scenes one hundred times better than we'd planned.

I'll try and get a full report up on the Blog as soon as I can.

Some amazing work from you guys, once again - thanks and well done.

The weather was poor and there was nothing for me to do so there wasn't much point in hanging around. I also had a 300 mile drive home so thought I might as well get going.

Having said that it didn't bother me that I wasn't needed, it was just luck of the draw as far as the scenes go. I still had a great time and would do it all again.
It's amazing to be involved in such a great project based around something I love.

Great stuff! I'm interested to see how the mutants will look. Did they have prosthetics along with the costumes, or did they go for a more normal look? (Nobody need answer, I'll see soon enough, just voicing my thoughts.) I'd think both could work out okay. Muties don't all necessarily look strange after all.

Hollywood take note, look forward to seeing it.

Really, not long at all - I think I did it over a couple of days, the background renders in a minute, and the composite probably about 5 minutes.

I just lifted the design from one of JT Pegg's competition entries (with permission), it seemed like a good fit.

Couple of days, if that...

3DS Max for the modeling, VRay for the rendering, and After Effects for the compositing.

The Judges were live-action elements shot when he hired out a green screen studio for a weekend. I'd like to get some more of these kind of elements though as I could do with more variety.

The smoke/steam was just stock footage.

We're working on a bit more pre-production whilst we're preparing to get the last four scenes in the can Then there's post, but some of that is being worked on whilst we're preparing for filming.

Hoping for a big March push to get it done!

Most of the filming is done. Locations are the BIG problem. We need a large area of rough or waste ground, which is desolate with very little vegetation. We keep finding these places, but usually we can't get on them due to health and safety, or the owner is savvy to the filming potential and wants to charge a fortune.

Ideally we'd like to keep it central as well, to make it easy for cast and crew to get there. North Wales, although a great location, was a big expense, once all the logistics were accounted for and quite grueling.

We've still got a few in mind, but FEEL FREE TO SEND ME ANY SUGGESTIONS  :)

Yeah, the important thing is to find somewhere where we can get permission, and that's not too expensive.

For example, most of the derelict places that have been suggested are either impossible to get hold of the landowners, or they don't want to know because the H&S is too much effort.

Other places we've looked at have wanted £1500 a day to film at, which is not something we can afford.

We don't want to risk it without permission, as it would be highly wasteful (not to mention embarassing) to get to a place with a bunch of people and get shut down by someone.

Thing is- vegetation is a no-no, so most of them are pretty overgrown.
The best we did find was Shoreham Cement works, looked stunning- but got a very quick "NO!" from them!

Post by: Steven Sterlacchini on 25 January, 2011, 02:05:22 pm
Probably not all of them. I'll keep looking.

'28 Days Later' and 'Derelictplaces.co.uk' are excellent resources, but they tend to enter places without permission, for short periods in small numbers. Some times there's a public footpath to give them access, but if you want to film on some ones property, even if there is public access, you need to have permission, especially if you're waving toy guns in the air  ;).

But please keep the suggestions coming!

That would have been great. I walked around there a few years ago when a friend was a night security guard there. It's a big site, it goes way back from the road. I guess health and safety was probably an issue with them. There's also a tunnel under the road that goes to the other site opposite. Real shame they said no.

I don't know what kind of budget the makers of Judge Minty are dealing with, but would it be more or less costly to create an artificial wasteland, just big enough for actors to walk a few steps and re-arrange as necessary, then green-screen the background and lay in a CGI matte? I hear it's supposed to be far cheaper to do these kinds of things, but what's the reality of the situation?

I would like to suggest somewhere in Leicestershire but this is a very green county.
We have quite a few quarries but the inactive ones are brimming with life and/or full of water.
Perhaps that could be an avenue for you. Do a search for inactive quarries for your locations.
This is Markfield Quarry just off junction 22 of the M1.
From a quick search this is probably the best that I know of, but I am sure there are better ones around the country.

These 2 sites situated only yards from each other are in Harpur Hill. As far as I know they are open to public scrutiny.

Harpur Hill isn't miles out of Buxton either. Its at what we call the top end, but in reality is SE of the town centre on the edge of the Town housing altogether.

Check out the map( Follow link. Its all in there.) Its a dog walk on the edge of town.

Great dramatic lighting and, in a way its, lighting can be very much a blank canvas. Be warned, weather is temperamental.

Its a large area and looks like it may be connected to a working quarry( beyond the railway line-unused) but is in fact dead land. Anyway drag the map around and see what you think.

Please give me a heads up on your response.

Ive had the unusual experience, over the last week, of talking to one of the other dads in the playground when picking my kids up. He approached me due to my dredd badge at first, and we got talking. It soon became apparent though that while he's a dredd fan, he's predominantly a stallone movie dredd fan. By the time i realised this, id already pointed him towards minty.
Just to report that today he told me that the trailer looks 'brilliant', but he wants to know where the flying bikes are, because he likes them.

Hi Folks, just to let you know, I'm going to look into those suggestions, thanks for the info.

Public right of way doesn't always allow permission to film, but it does suggest that H&S won't be as big a deal. So I'll look into those, thanks Krombasher.

Sheffield would be a good spot for me and might allow us to fit in some pick-up shots we need to do of Dredd. I'll do some research on those names, thanks dracula1.

I sent an e-mail to the UK film council asking for info on cheap or free filming locations and got this reply.


Your best point of contact is the regional screen agencies- there are 12 throughout the UK and they keep databases of locations in their region. However, deals on locations normally emerge from negotiations with the locations directly so it depends on what type of location you are looking for. The screen agencies should be able to advise.

By the way, everyone who saw little snippits of the film was blown away by it!

Hi,

Don't know what he's on about to be honest.

That looks like one of Wake's helmets - which he was selling at Kapow for less than that.

So unless there's some other Dredd short that didn't come off (which seems unlikely), or he's making it up. If it's Wake's then not made by a film studio.

We did have someone try to flog a costume that was like one of the gang, but wasn't anything to do with us either...

He says on there it's nothing to do with Minty.

Cheers

Steve

Hi,
Thanks for keeping an eye out on our behalf.

I assume they mean another 'short film' as this wasn't created for Minty. Also Minty isn't mentioned in the auction.

Minty is still very much on, by the way, and we're filming next weekend on the 7th and 8th.  :D

I think I might know the chap who is selling these and he does get involved with a lot of props and short films etc.

Actually I'm wondering if it's a re-cast of Wake's?

The shape is similar - although the red trim is a lot higher - Pretty sure Wake's always had an inlay as well.

The location yesterday was spot on for the scenes that were shot, very atmospheric and it fitted in perfectly with the Wales shoot. Once the heavens opened up, continuity was not a problem!

Albion died well and I know you will all enjoy his demise, as I bloody well did  ;)

It was a long day yesterday for the southern contingent and I think we all hit the sack before 22:00, after watching the rushes after our evening meal.

Me and Guy then watched some of my filming efforts in our room and even that looks okay, which shows the level of commitment from everyone.

Today will be another fun day, as it's going to involve a few more deaths and some very interesting shots, for certain people.

I'm pretty sure it's not one of mine. The shape doesn't look right, and it isn't lined. On the other hand the respirator badge does look like one of mine. I sold several by themselves so people could put them on their own fan helmets and I guess that that is what has happened here.

Cheers,

Wake

I'm glad you liked it CF. I hope it looked good on the rushes. I really enjoyed the Saturday shoot and I wasn't too late to bed when I got back to my relatives in Lincoln, I was knackered! I'm getting too old for this running around stuff.
I hope the Sunday shoot was successful and as much as fun. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens to the rest of you.

It was a real pleasure to work with the Minty team and it's fine cast once again. I'm so pleased to have been involved in it. It has been so much fun and something I will never forget.

Yeah, I noticed the lack of lining and the red trim is too high around the visor. I thought it might have been a re-cast of one of yours...

Hi All,
The last day of filming is this weekend.

We may have an opening for an extra, if anyone is interested? Unfortunately it's a masked roll, so no face time on screen. But if you live near Portland in Dorset and fancy helping out for the day (9am to 5.30pm) on Sunday 21st, shoot me a message.

Sorry for the lack of updates on this thread, I'm way behind. We have been moving forward.

A great day was had by all on the shoot yesterday. It was another long day on location, with the strange weather, pouring down in the morning and sunshine galore in the afternoon. The Minty team managed to get all the shots in that they needed plus numerous different angled shots, so really they will be spoilt for choice when they edit it.

I've only just finished looking at all the photos and footage that I took and it looks amazing, especially with the stunning scenery.

I've enjoyed the whole experience and can't thank the team enough for allowing me to be part of it and can't wait to see the finished film  :D

Post by: Steven Sterlacchini on 22 August, 2011, 05:56:20 pm
Yep, as they say "That's a wrap!"

We have just finished filming the live action footage for Judge Minty. Fingers crossed, though there is always the chance that after a 'rough cut' we discover that have to go back into the studio for the odd pick up shot.

Post production will take a considerable amount time, as every frame has some kind of digital effect on it.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped out, on behalf of the producers. There was no way on earth it could have been done without the essential help of all the extras and crew. We were continually amazed how much effort people would put in. Traveling miles and putting up with some terrible conditions for the chance to wear a damp and smelly costume and getting told to do the same thing over and over again.

It's always been a massive advantage to have a cast and crew of Dredd fanatics to bounce ideas off.

Amazing work.

A few of you lucky souls managed to see a bit of the 'first edit' at Thought Bubble over the weekend via Steven's ipad and everyones face's lit up as they watched it, especially with what they knew was to come.

Later on Saturday evening I was honoured to watch the film via a projector at Steven's home and I am even more excited now. Edmund looked amazing and really brings Minty to life through his acting. Some of the close ups on his face are stunning, as he reacts to various predicaments through the film.

Without spoiling the story, the action sequences are spot on and it rattles along at just the right pace. I also enjoyed Edmunds weapon skills, no drokker is going to pick him up on those  ;)
Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Pete Wells on 23 November, 2011, 08:15:22 am
I was one of those lucky souls - I got to see the first 11 minutes and 40 seconds of black and white, 'rough' footage (you owe me 17 minutes 20 ye bams!) and my jaw was on the floor! Its stunning work, very exciting and quite scary in places! Steve the director kept apologising for some shots (a brilliant shot of the West Wall for example) saying they were just temporary and they looked more than fine to me! It says a lot about the ambition of the team and the quality you can expect.

As CF said, Edmund, who plays Minty is excellent, as is Greg Staples who plays Dredd. I was chatting with him about it at Thought Bubble and he said he wanted to play it straight and how much it bothers him to see people gurning when in the role. There's some ace baddies too, with Fatboy Dale looking particularly horrific in his make up.

If I have one minor criticism, it'd be the way folk were holding their guns, a bit limp wristed if you ask me. If only there was someone who could have taken charge...

We're in for a treat guys, I can't bloody wait!

Another great days filming just happened yesterday (28th July) in London. All the regulars were there, with a few added new faces and luckily for us all, it wasn't as hot as it was the last time we filmed at those studios!

Many people looked at some cut scenes on screen before we started on the days work, then it was time to film!

Both Steve's managed the shoot well, as everyone followed directions and they managed to get all the required shots in the can. There were some really interesting scenes filmed, especially at the end when everyone really enjoyed themselves and we had quite a laugh. Obviously I can't go on about those scenes, as that would spoil it for everyone.

Edmund was excellent as always and when you see him on screen you'll be in for a treat.

Anyway, I shall leave you with a couple of pics from the day, that show you nothing really  ;)

First up, a rest break

I am unbelievably gutted I couldn't make it.  When I found it clashed with my mother-in-law's wedding I could have cried. Mind you, the fact the helmet didn't fit was a bit of a spanner in the works too.

Ah well, keep me in in mind for any promo work Judge Minty may need.  Once I get my XL helmet from Planet Replicas I'm good to go!

Yep, it was a bit more fun at this shoot. As these were simply a few pick up shots to fill some gaps in the edit and also to take advantage of the number of people with Planet Replicas costumes, we managed to be a 'little bit' more relaxed.

It was good to meet up with old and new faces, as always.

I'm still trying to decide if i can justify the cost to get to see this - I only have a Saturday ticket for TB, but am condsidering seeing it on Monday (along with Electric Man). That would cost me £22.50 for train/ticket, but for another fiver I can come back over to TB on Sunday and see it wth the squaxx.

Hmmm, decisions decisions.

I agree, that's why it would have to be really short and possibly purpose-made.

That said, I still think what Minty really needs is an animated Dreddheads cartoon to run before the 'main feature'.

Free entry with your festival ticket but it's a sixty seat screening room so get there in good time I guess, hopefully it will draw a good crowd. Thought Bubble website says over 18's only, I believe this is because it doesn't have a certificate yet.

Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Colin YNWA on 12 November, 2012, 09:33:28 pm
Anyway home now and with plenty more to say. First though it was screened in a pub, well bar, nice place, but not a great place to wait a film. Really it was like watching the footie with a more civilised atmosphere. I ended up stood at the bar so had a fine view and all, but couldn't justify watching the main film 'Electric Man' and having a very late night because of it, after to night with some heavy 1 year old action. So I left after Minty. Felt a bit rubbish about that as it looks like a good film and so will watch it when it reaches the Showroom here in Sheffield to make up! Hey I've left enough gigs after the support before now, its the same right? Anyway embarrassed apologies aside to the wittering.

Judge Minty is frankly fantastic. First and foremost while it is a fan film it looks great and is shot with real courage and flare. It does things I really didn't think it could and is incredibly bold in its realisation. The amount of work that must have gone into it is mind blowing. From the design to the direction, its an absolute testament to what folk can do with the desire, skill and commitment. Its kinda like punk rock produced by Tindersticks and Ian Caple...an analogy I'm sure I can work on!

The story really surprised me. It went in a direction I wasn't expecting and while its quite sparse it really works. It has a simple story to tell and tells it really well. Edmund Dehn is fantastic and holds the whole piece together. Almost all the other roles are handled really well and there's an economy to the use of character (christ, look I'm tired) that means that the fact that the roles are filled by dedicated fans and not acts is made to work.

Oh and it caters so well to its fan audience there's nerd nods of the head a plenty.

Really a tribute to all the hard work and effort put in by a small group of very talented and committed people.

Just to clarify, just in case. My comments about the venue weren't meant to be moaning, I'm happy to have seen the film wherever and would recommend seeing it in such a place over not seeing it anytime and its fantastic that the film is being shown as part of the Leeds Film Festival, whatever the venue. It was merely me justifyin' duckin' out, which I felt was a bit rude!

Watched Judge Minty tonight .....i'm not very good articulating words , so i will make it basic " it was fucking ace ".....

 Loads of action , you totally forget it is a fan made film ....The Crew and cast should be very proud of this ....

Only thing would have made it better if the screen had been bigger , it wasn't much bigger than A0 in size , think it could have been a small bed sheet ....

At the end it was clapped and cheered for 5 mins .....

I sat and watched the other Film Electric man .... hmmm it was about an hour too long and when that finished 15 seconds of clapping ...

Great year for 2000ad/ Dredd fan's 2 great films .... and i would say i enjoyed Judge Minty more than Dredd3d ....honest .

Now go and see it ...

But apart from that, it sounds like it went down a storm and this weekend can't come soon enough for me.

I hope you've all read the directors blog to see the way the film came to the screen. It really is worth your time to set aside 15 mins or so, with a cup of something and see it all fall into place.

Hi,

It's up to the other Steve really - I don't know if he's got any particular ones in mind.

From my point of view, I'd like to get it online sooner rather than later - I'd think it's more the film festivals than the conventions who stipulate that films aren't available online.

Sorry I can't give a definite answer, but I don't know myself yet.

One of the chaps I wrangled along to see Judge Minty with me was moaning a lot that he can't own a disc...

Obviously I explained the meaning of 'not for profit'. He said; 'cost & charity'. I riposted with 'between Judge Minty & Rebellion with Rebellion having the say'.

A nice wee charity release would be ace.

In the mean time, go to festivals & cons and enjoy! Then streak and enjoy.

Pretty chuffed to have been at TWO Judge films this year!!!

To be brutally honest, it's very easy for people to come up with idea, especially for other people to do.

Putting into action is another matter.

Apart from getting Rebellion's approval, there's also the matter of how many discs are made.

We don't know really how many would sell, and it would be pointless to spend a large amount upfront and be left with loads unsold, especially when it goes online.

I'm not a collector, I really don't feel the pressing desire to have a physical copy of anything any more.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, "read the directors blog" as this covers nigh on everything! These guys have worked extremely hard to get this ready for this week and it's cost them money, as well as time and effort.
If you've never been to a con, then perhaps you should give it some serious consideration, as for the time being that's where you'll see it!

To be brutally honest, it's very easy for people to come up with idea, especially for other people to do.

Very true.  You've obviously put an enormous amount of effort into this, then even more in a last final burst.  I think we're all very thankful for the fantastic work you and the Minty team have done, and any comments here are just of the "if I could have all my wishes" variety, or meant humorously.  I don't think anyone is expecting you to chain yourself to a computer again to do more on this project.  We're just all fired up wanting to see it.

It would be easy enough to create a basic DVD ISO for people to download and burn themselves.

That would be good and it could be for a charity donation too.

Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Steve Green on 15 November, 2012, 12:40:12 pm
It doesn't have an official certificate yet.

At a guess, it's somewhere between a 12A and a 15 for violence.

Steve wants to get it certificated properly for exhibition.
Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Steven Sterlacchini on 15 November, 2012, 12:46:47 pm
Yep, until it's certified, most events will run it as an 18. Plus the screening room at Thought Bubble is in a casino, so 18 anyway.

Like Steve says, we're thinking it might around 12A, 12 or 15 when certified.

I very rarely get time to post on these forums but I try to drop in to read up on what's happening in the community. Just wanted to take the chance tonight to thank Steven S, Steve G, Dan, Edmund, Greg and all the other cast and crew for making Judge Minty an awesome film. People have worked their backsides off on this since 2008 and it all shows on the screen. And to watch it in the presence of Mr Wagner (sitting directly behind him) was icing on the cake. I seriously doubt any squaxx will be disappointed.

a HUGE thank you to all involved, not only for making this, but for letting me blag a seat at the cast & crew screening last night as I couldn't make this morning's show.

I don't have enough superlatives to describe this, it was just drokking awesome. Edmund Dehn gave a sterling performance, cool to see some familiar faces too (SBT's missus was good in one of the few speaking roles) and the CGI effects were stunning. Lots of loving fan references too.

Everybody concerned should be rightly proud of what they've achieved.

Yup, what DanDontDare said above. Thanks to all the cast and crew for making this fantastic film, especially the two Steves who've put so much time, money and hard work into the project. What an amazing year we've had for Dredd!

The huge efforts REALLY show on screen - my jaw alternated from agape to grinning all the way through. I'm desperate to see the movie again and am thrilled at the buzz it caused at Thought Bubble from the fans and non-fans alike.

As I said elsewhere, I'd dearly love to see the Steves get the KTTs they deserve, Thought Bubble would have been the ideal venue...

Yeah, conventions/festivals first.

DVD/Blu-ray have been discussed, I think our preference if it goes that way is to do it as a charity thing - as part of the deal with getting location hire for the price we did was that it was a not-for-profit thing, and then it would all have to go through Rebellion anyway...

And it will go online at some point, just not sure when.

Me and the wife really loved the movie and it was only her second exposier to Dredd (the first being the new movie) but when we got home on Sunday night so asked me to get her Judge Death and Judge Death Lives so we may have converted her this weekend people!!!

Just watched this again with Mrs CF and she loved it, even though it's not the type of film she normally watches.

She said Edmund was excellent and really brought Minty to life with the added gravitas in his portrayal of the veteran Judge. Perfect casting, in two words!

She did mention some other stuff but if I mentioned those it would spoil the surprises in store. She thought the city looked great, the effects were clever (especially later on), the locations added to the story and she thought that Aquila was well acted, especially the use of his eyes!!!

Post by: Banners on 29 November, 2012, 08:14:16 am
This is a slightly overdue thank you to Steven for sorting out a copy of the film for me a couple of days ago. It's also a thank you to Steve Green for all the amazing amount of effort that has gone in to a great piece of work.

I watched "Judge Minty" with goosebumps - very much like being at the Dredd movie. It really is unbelievable to see what a couple of fans and their skilled collaborators have done with talent, gusto, hard work and probably not very much money.

Edmund looks amazing! There are a couple of places where the camera lingers on him for just a nanosecond longer (such as when he takes the Long Walk), and then you really do realise how perfect he is in the role. Both a pro and a real gentleman, it was a pleasure to meet him - and to have my brains blown out by such a nice guy!

The attention to detail is fantastic - from the radio voiceovers to the Judges walking around on the wall, to the graffiti and all the little knowing touches which embellish everything with both creativity and a real love for the source material. Brilliant music and sound effects too.

It's a wonderful journey, and the ultra-violence contrasts nicely with moments of solitary calm. It's packed with great ideas and the scale of ambition has been wonderfully realised. The Cursed Earth mutants are revolting (in a good way!) and the Gila Munja effects are great.

And after all the excitement, the conclusion is profound and rewarding. I can see myself watching this many, many times...!

Thanks again for making this - you've made a lot of people very happy and very proud. And thanks for letting me be part of it.

Cheers!

Hey, since I don't want to read the whole thread I want to ask a noob question. I'm waiting for this movie ever since I saw the trailer on youtube and as a german I know that there's no hope to see this film anywhere except the internet. So my question is if it will be free to watch online one day? If not when will there be a DVD and will it be shipped to germany? Oh and my last question is if there will be a blu-ray too? I prefer HD quality so I don't like buying DVD's anymore.
Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Steve Green on 01 December, 2012, 05:29:23 pm
I would say free on the internet is a certainty eventually, but we want to do the rounds of festivals first, and they usually stipulate that a short hasn't been on the internet first.

At a guess I reckon it will be on the internet middle of next year - but that's down to the director when he feels its done enough festivals/conventions. Cardiff has already been confirmed, which is March (I think).

DVD/Blu-Ray is a different ball-game, since it's a not-for-profit thing, and Rebellion own the copyright on the characters it gets complicated, but that's the deal with fan-films.

Things have been discussed, but nothing concrete has been sorted on that front.
Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Chrrow on 01 December, 2012, 05:37:46 pm
Ah ok, thx for the answer.

About the DVD/Blu-Ray problem. Have to considered asking Rebellion if you can sell it if they get part of the money? Maybe they are willing to sell it for you or something since they would make profit.
Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Steve Green on 01 December, 2012, 05:52:20 pm
As I said, things are being discussed.

Things like location hire would have been done on the understanding that it was done for a not for profit basis, if it was being sold, then we would need to clear it with them etc, and they might want more money.

It gets complicated, and I don't really want to discuss the ins and outs of it.

Thanks.

It's playing at conventions, check the Facebook page, along with here and the directors blog. Come the summer it shoul be available online to watch for free!

It's doing the rounds of conventions/film festivals first, then will go online probably April/May.

Should have details of showings.

There's one in Belfast, one in Cardiff, we're trying to sort something for London.

I doubt we will do a physical copy other than for cast and crew.

We can't make a profit from it, as Minty/Dredd is not our intellectual property - even just covering costs could become problematic, and we'd rather just put it online for everyone to watch for free.

Cheers

Keep an eye out for event announcements. The guts are keeping everyone as up to date as they can for when & where the screenings are.

Also I am keeping a list on my blog.

Couldn't you do a deal with Rebellion to release it or something? or are they not interested?

Another thing that would be awesome is if the people who make the Dredd DVDs bought the film and added it as bonus content to a special edition version, I'd be straight back to the shops to buy another copy if that ever happened  :D

Though I guess the fact that you've promised a free online release would decrease its worth somewhat in the eyes of the bigger companies. Still, there must be a huge amount of people out there who want to own some kind of official hard copy, even if its just a bundled release with Dredd.
Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Steve Green on 01 March, 2013, 10:09:09 pm
It's not that they're not interested, it's just complicated.

If anyone profits from it, either from a direct sale, or even as an extra on a DVD then we have to go back to all the people who offered their services for free as it was a fan film, and check that it's all OK.

We'd rather just put it online.

Cheers

One other thing.  :D

With the increased quality of sites like vimeo, it's likely that the online version might be better than a DVD, so I don't think there would be a need for one.

Our main aim has always been to make it as easily available to as many people as possible.  :)

£2.99 on ebay & my son's pad wirelessly connected to my broadband plays whatever he wants on my 42" fully HD TV... Yup, it'll look Minty fresh!

Thanks guys
went to see MINTY at Edinburgh bootleg festival @ the Banshee labyrinth Niddrie street Edinburgh..
 Wasnt looking promising 15 mins before the movie started, then all seats were taken  roughly 30 or more + people standing + camera people recording the festival ....
What can i say ... you guys  really pulled the stops out the look the feel was all 2000AD .
 The parts i liked the best were  the VFX shots at the start of the city  from  top to bottom going through the levels and roads were  realistic beyond belief ... i think i dare say i prefer your look of the  BIG MEG  than Garlands and co...
whats your plans after this
----------------
what about  5 mins shorts ????
Rogue Trooper chatting with bio chips between battles
an interview or confessions  with a vampire    Durham RED   possible   J.A. attraction or something
Dredds 15min sleep  cycle   cue the music
johnny alpha at the ammo store
 etc

Nothing planned - we've talked about stuff, but if anything does happen it would be short pieces (5 min max)

I did suggest the SD Ammo Store thing funnily enough, a bit like the beginning of the killing.

I would be up for doing it, but at the moment, I'm concentrating on paying work.

It's not an intentional snub, and it's the first time I've noticed it, maybe it's because it's mainly Steve and I have been doing the Q+As/screenings and Danel has been amazingly busy with Planet Replicas - and we've both been saying how essential Daniel's costumes were at the Q+As.

I don't know why the video is still set to private, maybe Mike was holding off until he tweeted about it.

Sure it will be up today.

Yep, it's simply an oversight because the 'Steves' have been doing the promo whilst Dan is busy. Nearly every interview or Q&A panel credits Dan and his work as the main inspiration for starting the project and his work on the production as being VERY much key to any success the project has.

all the best on the release
Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Steven Sterlacchini on 28 March, 2013, 11:23:12 am
Yep, it's a slightly different cut.

There will be a new title sequence which includes more 'mega city colour'. There will also be numerous digital tweaks, which we didn't have time to do for the main festival cut. Though there is nothing which changes the story.

We are hoping to have some of this finished in time for Sci-Fi London, but it will definitely be the final edit which goes online.
Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Steve Green on 28 March, 2013, 11:33:54 am
Yeah, the CCTV shots are part of the intro - we showed some of them at Cardiff.

I've been tweaking a few shots, so anyone seeing it at Sci-fi London will see a slightly different cut to previous showings.

But I'll probably keep adjusting things after that before it goes online.
Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Bat King on 28 March, 2013, 12:09:37 pm

I'm really looking forward to the internet release so I can see it at last!

My son is also keen to see it but I'm not sure what age range it is aimed at.  Is it an "all ages" thing or is there swearing or graphic violence?  I'll probably vet it first but it would be nice to watch it for the first time with him.

Hi,

no swearing, but fairly graphic violence.

Equivalent would probably be somewhere between a 12A and a 15.

Wow..just Wow

I'm not usually a lover of fan films..mainly because of shite acting and the inevitable shite look due to no budget

But this..this is truly arsom

Absolutely loved it..it had the feel of a licenced film and the premise was great

Loved the crazies..the Mutie villain was bad arse

Overall I'm blown away it turned out that good

Well done to everyone involved..

Hah, not at the moment - although Barry who did the storyboards on Minty is doing something using the same costumes, I'm not really involved - but at the moment we're all a bit burned out by it.

I think if we did do something, it would be Stront or Rogue possibly, and a lot shorter 5 mins tops.

Yeah - I could do more, but

a) you can't revise a youtube video (which might be for the best)

and

Incredible in so many ways. This is so good, you should all be very proud. I won't spoil it for others that haven't seen it, but some of my favourite moments were real surprises - 8:43 (the effect) quickly followed by 8:45 (the cause) gave me a chill (yes, the window is opened, but that ain't it) and...11:06 is a topper of a reveal. Beautifully done.

And bravo to Edmund Dehn, a great Minty.

Thanks,

yeah, there were quite a few tweaks on the backgrounds + making you a bit more mutated, just lots of little fixes (although I could still do more).

It is a bit mixed feelings - I'm terrible watching it with an audience, but actually not that bothered when thousands are watching it...

I think it's more, that's it - no more chance to tweak it really.

Finally I get to see this.

mega City 1 looks stunning, and I am stumped as to how you managed it so well. I see that Justice Central is the same as in the Stallone pic, did you swipe anything or is it all your own work?

Minty himself is perfectly cast, a great job.

I like the muted colour effect, so much better than standard video, and makes it look expensive in a good way.

Gila Munja also deserve a special mention, they are spot on.

Overall, a brilliant, brilliant effort from people who know what the sneck they're doing. I am a critical bastard at the best of times (after all, I AM a critic!) but there's nothing here that I think you could have done any better.

I will post a review on my blog with a link to the vid.

Hi,

thanks - I swiped the design, but upped the scale a bit more, but still had to make the model.

I was a bit torn about using it, it's a nice icon building and gives the more fascistic brutalist look than the bauble one that would be correct for that era (and used in Year One)

But we had MK2s as well, so we'd already strayed a little anyway.

I thought it was a nice contrast between the other buildings being mainly more organic and chaotic, and the HoJ being a bit more stiff and angular.

Yep, some of the location shoots felt like mini conventions.

Everyone from the forum created a brilliant positive vibe. Lots of ideas being thrown around, a real high point in filming.

At one point when everyone was crowded in cars half way up a mountain in Wales, I thought everyone must be hating us, well hating me anyway. But when the rain finally let up enough to film something EVERYONE was in a very happy mood and raring to get started.

Edmund took me aside, "if these we're paid actors, they'd all be moaning and miserable", I think he summed up how lucky we were to have fellow forum members involved

Watched it. Loved it.

Its pretty clear why its production cycle was rather long. All dat CGI. I was actually bowled over with how much effects work was crammed in. Mega City One's skyline never looked so authentic.

If I had one criticism its that I got kind of lost on what was going on with the stone circles, swirls, and invisible lizards. And what exactly that statue was in Fairtown and what it represented. Also, I kind of felt having all the Cursed Earth baddies get killed by the lizards sort of took Minty away from the focus for too long.

Other then that, film was great. I will be spreading its existence across the net far and wide today.

Hi,

if you have a look for youtube downloaders, you should be able to install firefox extensions to download the .mp4 file. There used to be a site called keepvid as well which would let you do that.

The shrine was basically an offering post for the Gila Munja, so Minty was banking on buying time by trying to pacify them with his gear, and get safe passage out while he laid a trap for the gang.

He saw the swirls at the first cave, and spotted that the tracks led to a settlement that the Gila Munja had overrun, it was a way to play one against the other to kill off the rest of the gang, since Aquila's telekinesis made it virtually impossible for him to beat them directly.

Watched half of it, saving the rest for later.  Hugely impressed so far - it was worth the wait!  Aside from the amazingly professional special effects, costume design and acting, what it has in droves is atmosphere:  It makes me realise how utterly awful the prospect of having to patrol the Cursed Earth for the rest of one's (presumably very short) life must be.  Can't wait to see how it pans out. Though I'm looking forward to some of the other Dredd fan-films in production, it's hard to see how they'll surpass this bad boy.

Just find it on YouTube, and type the letters 'pwn' just after the 'www.' and before the 'youtube' in the URL address.  Hey presto, it's yours to download in whatever format you like.  One of the many useful things I've learned from this very message board.

Post by: Mardroid on 06 May, 2013, 11:36:02 pm
Very good film. And yes it feels like a proper film despite the short running time.

I was wondering how Minty got his gun back after giving it up with all his gear at the shrine, particularly as the Gila Munja survived the altercation, but thinking about it further I guess he could have gone back and fetched it while the reptiles and gang members were occupied.

Anyway, yes, great stuff.  And the CGI was pretty realistic. Very impressive considering the budget.

That whole cloaking thing allowing for a less is more approach worked very well with the Gila Munja. Not that they looked bad when you properly saw them. Kinda like nasty fast moving Komodo dragons. Not a bad way to go.

Oh, I found the approach to the special rounds of gun ammunition quite interesting. An extra to plug into the barrel rather than already loaded specifically. While a bit of a departure from the comics in some ways it worked surprisingly well providing a kind of alternative to the voice activated route* the comics take.

*I say "voice activated route", I'm not sure that was the original intention of the comics. I think it might have simply started from the comic culture of the day of characters narrating their actions. ;)

It may not have been clear enough, but Minty only unloads his lawgiver and then puts the magazine down as an offering. He keeps hold of his side arm.

I've always considered the function of Lawgivers, especially heat seeker rounds to be a little vague. We created our own little explanation, which we used as a basis for the film.

I've seen that, and it did occur to me that was where it was from. I don't think I've ever seen the judges actually use a heatseeker that way though. Which isn't to say they don't between panels of course...

Oh, and I didn't intend my comment to be a criticism. I thought it worked very well.

I've noticed that often in back-flash scenes/stories, judges are often shown armed with the type 2 style Lawgiver. And some artists draw the type 2 like a type 1. Carlos Ezquerra in particular.

I'd say the gun in the world of your film is really a type 1. (It just looks like a comics type two. Heh.)

There's talk of something happening around October, and I'm sure I'll do some before and after shots for the effects side.

There's a lot of stuff which are not really showy things - just fixes, like the writing on the sign at the end is CGI because it got overlooked and it also meant we could tweak the look in post if we wanted to.

Another one was covering up a bit of velcro on the costume by tracking in a clean bit of leather.

Steve and Steve and the rest have been as gracious as ever they are, about Edmund and the forum people who helped make this possible, but they always seem to miss one thing out. They too were blooming lovely to 'work' with. Now I only worked on one day, so its very possible people who worked with them more will reveal they were actually a bunch of rat-bag prima donnas, but in my experience they were always considerate, open to ideas and patient beyond words.

Oh and they allowed a bunch of fan boys to run around with all their cool stuff and dress up and play with guns and stuff, while no being precious about it, at all. Just really nice people, working incredibly hard to make something great.

The story that sums it up for me was when they asked who'd like to wear the Judge's costume, after Edmund had left to do the being shot bits. Now, as you might expect, there was a bunch of slavering fanboys barely containing themselves with glee at the prospect, barely holding back having a scrap for the honour. Their concern, that whomever it was might hurt their arse falling onto concrete. I've have never seen a bunch of men less concerned about falling on their arse onto a bit of concrete in my life. The crew being the bloody nice people they are though, that was the only thing on their minds.

Hi all, thanks to Steve S, the collected storyboards are now available to view in full online at the link below. They include original sequences and some redrafts of a few scenes with additional notes from either myself or Steve. I would like to apologise in advance for the roughness in many of these pages, especially towards the end. If anything it shows just how much gorgeous detail Steve G originated in every single frame of the film.

Needless to say these contain EVERY SPOILER IMAGINABLE for the film. Also, get a brew and a couple biscuits, its 200 pages long.

yeah there's always compromises with film making (let alone a fan film), but we're happy people are enjoying it.

One guy on youtube posted that he'd watched it with his lad, and he'd then asked to read some Dredd off the back of it.

That was probably the comment that's made me happiest.

A few woahs from Mrs G during the early stages, showcasing that this really isn't a typical fan effort. The ambition here was marvellous to see, and I think getting in Edmund Dehn was a very smart move. Nice also to see a Mad Max vibe out in the Cursed Earth versus whatever the Stallone flick tried to do.

Thanks,

I wish we'd had the budget to prosthetic a few mutants up (I adore Bolland's ones from the Cursed Earth)

I did try some tests on myself which looked pretty good, but I doubt they would have survived the torrential weather in Wales, so we kept it simple.

Fantastic. Congratulations to all involved. That was even more enjoyable on a second viewing – the last time I saw it in full was at LSCC. 

Some really nice touches (not sure if these are new or if I just I didn't notice them before) eg the trashed Land Raider, riot foam and the surfer.

Some colleagues are on multiple views! Result!

I just had to say 'There is so much I'm not saying!' to one who hasn't seen it yet but is viewing tonight with a couple of cans of beer & burgers, phone off, doors locked.

He asked 'what?' then realised I meant there are tons of spoilers bouncing around in my head.

How soon is too soon for me to do a Spoilerific review??? I've still not mentioned the Gila Munja or Killdozer... Not mentioned how the ending reminds me that Cadets have no choice, 'taken as a child. it was kill or die, kill or die' (not certain I'm accurate with the quote...). Just so much cool stuff that needs breaking down to show why the film is so good, not just that it has stuff in there for the fans but that it is complete, a real world kind of setting BECAUSE of the detail. The world in Minty is so well structured.

Post by: TordelBack on 09 May, 2013, 03:54:31 pm
Yeah, it definitely elicits the 'whoah!'s when you approach it first time as 'the Dredd fan film'.  The riot foam snippet and general city views are so unexpectedly ambitious from the start, and the inspired casting of Staples, Domino and the marvelous Dehn in the key Judge roles just sets the quality level so high immediately that it's a delicious shock to realise that all this is really just preamble

The key scene of Minty and the 'No Law' sign, with the radio chatter, the brilliantly-effective ash particles and walled city looming in the distance is as atmospheric and affecting as anything in the 'real' Dredd films or the comic itself. 
Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: SuperSurfer on 09 May, 2013, 03:56:05 pm
Minty (the film, not the man*) is a triumph of substance over style.

The visuals are stunning, in particular the Mega City 1 sequences. But the film is not just about its look. It has an excellent script, acting, direction etc.

So what we now need Mr Carroll, is the comic adaptation.

*I should add the man was perfectly cast and I wish I at least said "hello and well done" to him in the boozer on Saturday.

After seeing this a couple of times at cons, it's been great to be able to watch it at my leisure, checking out all the tiny details that I may have missed. It really is a fine piece of work on every level.

The new touches, particularly in the opening credits, are fantastic - It's amazing how much effort must have gone into a 2 second glimpse of nicklambo and missus getting riot foamed!

In fact the only teeny tiny bit that i thought was a little misjudged - and I'm not sure if this is a recent tweak or if I just didn't notice it before - is the shot of Aquila's death when his guts splash out around him. It just seemed a little cartoonish and unrealistic unlike all the other cgi. But that's literally the only criticism I can come up with.

Once again, thank you to all who've contributed to a marvelous endeavour.

PS - nice commission too!

Would loved to have done gore practically, but wasn't really an option logistically - I don't think anything changed on that particular shot from various showings.

On the positive side, cartoonish gore makes it a bit more palatable for younger viewers - I noticed on youtube said he watched it with his 9-year old son, who then wanted to read more of Dredd, which was a great comment to receive.

Cheers

Do we have a pool going on what gets nicked from Minty first?  If so, put me down for a fiver on "that bit where the psychic bloke alters the bullet's trajectory".

Also never realised until my second viewing that the Long Walk is essentially Justice Department-sanctioned suicide.  Puts a spin on the Tale of the Dead Man I hadn't thought of before.

Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Steve Green on 12 May, 2013, 09:45:29 am
I was going to say the same thing, if it wasn't a direct thing, it was more that it had seeped into our consciousness.

Shojan stopped a lawgiver round with his Psi-powers, although Big Brain mucking around with Sam Slade's blaster beam is probably a closer visual.

I think a heatseeker is just a nice visual way to show it because it can have a trail.

The gang is kind of what would have been the remains of the Brotherhood of Darkness led by an evil version of Novar. Just flinging rocks around instead of metal trees. (It is a bit of a nod to the death belt as well)

What was funny was seeing bits cropping up in the prog, the megazine and the film which we were already doing.

E.g. the CCTV screens, the headbutt and throat punch in the hand to hand - then there the Gila Munja and the image of the skull in the helmet turning up in Cursed Earth Koburn, and the gang with the Psi-powered leader in Tour of Duty.

One of the inevitable consequences when you're all working from the same source.


The suicide analogy is an interesting one - I've got my own theories on Minty's state of mind.

We thought about what Judges do for support, whether there are arms caches/supplies scattered around. (Also notable that Dredd got a lawmaster, the lazy bastard)

One thing I would have loved to done which didn't make it in there is to have made the mutants a bit more mutated - only 2 have facial differences done digitally.

One idea (which I think might have been workable) is to have made Dale's character like the one with Chuck Titman and have a smaller, gobby mutant on his back, or the back of his head. Didn't occur to me till after filming though.

I spotted this a while back, and it's a rather nice technique for digital prosthetics

https://vimeo.com/23946602 (https://vimeo.com/23946602)

The main limitation is that heads can't turn too much as it's a 2D fake, I did similar on Dale's character, but you only really notice on the introduction, as the fight scene is mostly short shots, but if you look at individual frames you can see he's been altered.

I think we spotted that after the fact - some of those Bolland Eagle covers passed us by. The original image had no skull, but it's a much stronger one with it - also echoes Judge Death as well as the cracked visor referencing things like City of the Damned.

You can see there's parallel evolution where you compare the battered look of that helmet to the ones in Dredd - the scratched metal and aged patina are very close.

We just needed a contrast between a city version and the beaten up Cursed Earth one.

If there is one thing I would have added to Judge Minty, if I had been making the final cut, it would have been at the very end, when Minty was about to shoot the surviving raider. I'd have had a little flashback to 5 year old Minty being accepted to the Academy of Law. Just to drive home the parallel between how vicious criminals and cursed earth raiders, are products of their environments, and so are Judges.

I mean, we as Judge Dredd fans know how young a Judge's life starts. But the film doesn't really make it clear. And since 'how you're raised' is sort of the overall theme of the thing, it would have been a nice touch, I think, to tie it all together.

Though I can completely understand why that sort of scene would have been left out. Since it would have required another shoot, and a child actor of some kind. But it would have been a nice touch I think.

It's a fair point, there is the cadet in the background of the Long Walk scene, but maybe more could have been made of him, I don't think it was necessary to show Minty himself in flashback, it would have been enough to have made more of the induction of cadets from an early age.

I'd have thought it was fairly clear what the message there was, but perhaps that's cause I know the history well?  I guess if it was for those less well informed, non fans and such seeing this just as a wee internet film like, that would have been a nice touch.

My son got it, he is only a casual reader of Dredd but he got it. He said it was a great ending with a reprise of the thoughts at the beginning plus the fact Judges are taken as a child & for them it is more or less fight or die...

So I think only non-readers would possibly only see the pattern of him wantining to give more chances but that he can't.

This is one of the MANY spoilers I've been sat on all this time..l.

That's fantastic! My favourite bits are the judge giving the perp a leathering with the daystick and the cum-shot of Anderson. When you said you wished you could have included some daystick action in the film I assumed you didn't have time to shoot it, rather than excising it to suit the flow of the narrative.

Yep, and even though I disagree strongly with Adobe forcing their software into a rental only model...

Instead of writing "Justice" on the sign at the end, he should've written "That's all, Folks!"

That's why Justice was done in CGI John... ;)

As for these other links - I'd be suspicious of anything that wants to install it's own software - there seem to be a bunch of those, and it smells like spyware to me.

I may be wrong, but I don't understand why anyone would want to install a .exe when they could either watch it via youtube, or download it via vimeo.

Its probably been answered somewhere before but is Dredd played by THE Greg Staples the artist or an actor with coincidentally the same name?

Oliver Hollingdale's recent effort got me in the mood to watch this again, my word, it's fantastic as I remembered it, if not better on the rewatch. I loved the fact that it was a jalgemation of both the Dredd film and the comic, and to be honest, I enjoyed this interpretation much better. Edmund Dehn - whoever had the idea to cast him, take a bow! This would look perfectly in place in a Judge Dredd TV series, with Dehn maybe reprising his role (and Greg Staples growing a chin!  :D).

Duncan Jones was saying on his Twitter feed with 2000AD being a British institution, it would make sense for it to partner the Beeb and make a series or two based on some popular strips. God, how I would love to see a Judge Dredd TV series, the BBC have already done a fantastic job with the Doctor Who series, and other shows such as Luther etc. They have the expertise and money to really get something going. Not only Judge Dredd, but how about a Buttonman series? I know a film has been talked of in the past but nothing has happened thus far.

I would love to see the world of Judge Dredd/ Minty revisited again. Steve, Mike and all you guys, I plead with you - please give it a thought! You never know what can happen....

With the creative team behind Judge Minty still on board that is....
Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: redbaz on 04 November, 2013, 10:02:56 am
I've often said that Dredd would work best as a TV show, an HBO-style procedural set in MC1 with an ensemble cast, not always focusing on Dredd himself, but including the huge diverse cast of characters we've seen in the last 30 years following an overall arc plot. RO-BUSTERS would be a great animated series for the CBBC audience; thematically TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS is similar. My 5 year old loves RESCUE BOTS. STRONTIUM DOG could be a great space western series as well but would fit a filmic trilogy, as would an updated ROGUE TROOPER.

The great thing about 2000ad is the massive portfolio of characters waiting for someone with vision and a sizeable budget to come along and bring them to life on the screen. I don't know if the BBC would be the best home for it though.

I really doubt it would be Dredd/Minty again - if we did something it would be a different strip, and also shorter.

The latter part of that notion is not so great.

Would it be shorter because of budget constraints? If so, I'm sure we can all chip in! But even if it isn't Judge Dredd related, if the same creative team are involved then you can count me in!

Post by: Steve Green on 04 November, 2013, 11:09:10 pm
Partially, but also we don't want something to take as long as Minty did - it takes time as much money.

The situation with regards to funding is that Rebellion will not allow funding to be raised for fan-films.

It's an understandable position, which a lot of people don't seem to really consider.

If we (or anyone else) ran a kickstarter or raised funds, once the money is raised there is nothing to stop people misusing the money, or failing to deliver. All it would give Rebellion is the potential headache of dealing with the fallout.

If you do it for one, then you've also got the potential that others will ask why they can't do it - again, more headaches.

Dredd's moving pictures rights are with DNA for a good while yet. If Rebellion let anyone raise money it doesn't make it an attractive prospect for anyone else doing a 'legitimate' film/TV/etc.

Marvel recently shut down a Punisher fan film that had already been made (and self-funded).

We should be grateful that Rebellion allow fan films at all.


There is a good article about fan films here.

Thank you for explaining that Steve, and taking the time to do so. It explains a few things. I'm quite surprised Marvel shutdown that Punisher fan film, it was bloody excellent. It's a slippery slope I suppose...
Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Steve Green on 05 November, 2013, 12:12:04 am
No problem.

There's no real obvious guidelines as to what's allowed and what isn't. Although generally kickstarters will tend to get the wrong sort of attention.

Companies change hands, films get put into development, the only certainty is to not take anything for granted - after all you're playing with someone else's IP.

Necro-post...

I've added subtitles/cc for Minty.

Someone asked, and it had been on my mind as something that should be done.

It was a bit tricky with the multiple radio chatter audio, but hopefully it gets some of it over, and it's easy to tweak...
Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Bat King on 24 May, 2015, 04:10:30 am
That's cool. I just had a peek & they are looking good.

I also played with the auto translate that YouTube does with CC. It isn't perfect, actually at times it is a mess, but it works. I have a lot of Spanish speaking readers from Spain & Argentina - the biggest language group other than English that read my blog - so I was intrigued.

I thought it translated Gila Munja fine... then I realised it just puts the original if it realises can't translate.

Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Steve Green on 24 May, 2015, 01:25:33 pm
Thanks, I don't think there's much in the way of formatting/codes to tell it not to translate certain things. It seems pretty basic.

Would be handy if it could just automatically create a translation track which could then be edited to remove the bits which didn't translate quite so well...
Title: Re: Judge Minty (Judge Dredd fan film)
Post by: Bat King on 24 May, 2015, 05:43:26 pm
Yeah that'd be very useful. My next experiment is using the auto translate in the other direction.

We just went past 700,000 views - which is nice.

What's funny is that bar the odd spike, it had settled down to <200 views a day, but since about a week before the Dredd TV series announcement it had been steadily climbed, and has been at 1,500-2000+ a day for a good while.

It's interesting to compare to Stront, which probably had about a 1/3 of the initial views of Minty.

Obviously, Minty had a sweet spot coming after Dredd, and Dredd is the golden goose, but it's been interesting to compare the two, both in views, any mention of it on sites etc.

Hah, cheers - yeah would be interesting to know what's multiple views, AFAIK if it's from the same IP it doesn't count repeat views.

I've no idea how accurate youtube's views are, (and not all people who view it are going to watch all of it (especially at 27m)

I'm sure they're better than facebook's fairytale numbers though.
