Made this animation over the last week, using recorded audio from a conversation I actually had with a friend after he’d had a few too many (and thus became extremely gullible)…
The Thief and the Cobbler: Recobbled Cut Mark 4. A new restoration of the legendary unfinished film by the three-time Academy Award winning animator of Who Framed Roger Rabbit and A Christmas Carol. Richard Williams spent 23 years on the film. It was nearly completed when he was fired from the project.
My name is Garrett Gilchrist. In 2006 and 2008, I edited the Recobbled Cut Mark 1-3, which used different versions of the film and rare footage from all over the world to put together a watchable version of what was intended to be Richard Williams’ masterpiece.
You can watch the entire 2008 Mark 3 restoration at http://youtube.com/thethiefarchive along with hundreds of other videos from Richard Williams’ incredible animation career.
But the Mark 4 Restoration is much more complex. Thanks to donations from people like you, we’ve transferred over 30 minutes of 35mm film footage in full HD to get big screen quality. Incredibly complex editing unlike any fan restoration ever attempted has removed dirt, splices and damage and recreated shots the way Richard Williams intended. Thousands of frames have been cleaned up and fixed in Photoshop, Final Cut Pro and After Effects. Transitions from one source to another are seamless. New artwork. New composite shots from many different sources. Footage never seen before, and certainly not in this kind of quality.
This is an unofficial, not for profit restoration, to be completed and released in 2013.
I have officially fallen in love with this video.
Aw, nuts. Just spent a few days making a new armature for a model only to discover that it’s not going to work and keeps falling apart. Crap. I am now about a week behind on this.
Where is that first set of photos from? Am I a bad fan for not knowing this?
it looks like one of those fan-made live action films— thogh i might be remembering wrong
The Chell one is from the Long-Fall Boots clip.
Don’t know about the Half-Life one. D:
I had to think for a while, but I think they might be from “When Gordon Met Chell.” YouTube’s being a pain in the butt right now so I can’t verify :-(
The first two Freeman ones are from this. Not sure about that last one, though.
EDIT: Yup, it’s When Gordon Met Chell
Zachariah Scott strikes again…
Seriously, why does Chell appear so shiny in the hlmv?
I’m assuming its a problem with the material files. Also, HLMV probably uses one giant environment light in its virtual rendering environment rather than just using fullbright
You can actually shift the light around (either with ctrl or shift + click) but it didn’t make her look any better, honestly.
Try ticking the ‘normal mapping’ box.
