Really good job potraying the robot. I like the pose and the look, as well as the reflections. I always pictured the robot being gold toned as I watched the movie, even though it's black and white (if that makes any sense...)
Thanks--Yeah, the red got a little murky; I can't remember how, but I remember I had to use some red paint, so that's probably why. I Must have made some mistakes while laying out the black, otherwise the red would pop more
Hey, thanks! I've taken a little interest in silent film lately. I agree that "Metropolis" really was/is ahead of its time--The concept and the overall look of the movie is still very innovative and relevant today. I remember going to the video store as a kid and seeing the cover of the movie--It always stood out and stuck in my mind.
I guess all the new technology and cgi in movies today makes me want to look back at movies from the past. I miss puppets & monster make-up, and I miss the way special effects used to be done in the past--I think maybe there was a lot more creative thinking and problem solving in movie making than there is today.
I think Metropolis shows up all the new cgi-filled films. I still love them but some of the stuff in Metropolis is jaw-dropping when you try and think of how they did it. Everything had to be done either on camera or drawn and tweaked pain-stakingly onto the film after. Amazing film. Instantly became my no.1 fav only 10 minutes into it.
This is kind of embarrassing to admit, but I haven't actually seen the film ...I have read about it and heard great things about it, but I haven't actually had a chance to view it. The images I've seen from the movie have always fascinated me, and it's obvious they were way ahead of their time when they it.
