War of the Worlds

My ol' mate Tim Wade came to me once with an idea for a short film loosely based around the 'War of the Worlds' theme. I thought the approach he wanted to take with it was fantastic.

This was, of course, before the Steven Spielberg version had been made (which I like a lot).

I started with a more alien design for the war machines.

We then tried approaching them as essentially tanks on legs. The look fit in really well with the period setting of the film. I really thought this was a cool way to go. Different.
It's a shame it never happened.

You never know... maybe one, Tim?

The economic crisis has unfortunately left its mark on the scope of my production. Please delete the word WORLDS and insert the word PATIOS. Thank you.

I love the tank version. Come on Tim - HD cams are cheap and there must be a dozen actors looking for work - go and make that short!
