Hello all,

I've been made aware of this short film, set in modern day rural Lincolnshire and based on HG's work. I hope it's ok to share the links - here they are:

http://www.virginmediashorts.co.uk/films/film/war-of-the-wolds/

And here's a piece from the local paper:

http://www.thisisscunthorpe.co.uk/news/Martians-attack-Barton/article-1203067-detail/article.html

I think it looks pretty good: but what do others think?

Cheers,

Harry.

Hey Harry,

Thanks for this, we'll leave the one with a nod for now. It the lawyers get in touch then I'll take it down, need the fans on the forums to go to virgin till after the 31st July 09. It's when the competition that I have enter WOTW in.

Please fell free to offer you opinions here on this forum.

Thanks

Robin Smith

Whilst I respect the talent that's gone into this-I am a bit lost as to why it is pegged into Jeff Wayne's Forum Website.

Might it be just me missing something here?

Kind regards,

Was a bit dubious over this myself - times flies, as it was posted back in July! - particularly because the second link doesn't work.

Still as dubious as I was back then, even more now neither of them have posted since making those posts. Hmmmm.

I mean, as the link never worked, you'd have thought they'd wanted to correct the one to the newspaper article at least? I think I went looking for the report when I saw the post originally, don't know if I found it eg using the paper's name and this project. Hmmmm. More mysteries. lol

All 3 links given work for me.
I must say, the tripods look very similar to, even almost identical to the Spielberg ones.

I am the producer of the short film... Right I posted my link to this site because I thought you guys would appreciate it. I have been in touch with 'our Damien' and he outlined some concerns about copyright, I asked for more details but have yet to hear back from him. Not really sure why or what you are dubious about. My tripods did look like the Spielberg ones but that was down to the man that made the models. I asked him to make a tripod and he is a major fan of the musical and films and he built it from scratch.

The virgin media link is dead as the competition is closed. But if you wanna see the trailer use uk google and it's all there.
Ask away....
