This is the first mircofilm that was purposefully created for the site. Believe it or not, they were all intended to be about this long--that just sort of never happened.

This microfilm came out of two things. First Michael had bought a model helicopter that we wanted to see if we could use in Colonel Crush or something. Second I had just bought a new particle effects program and wanted to try it out at it's primary function--blowing s*** up. And there you have it.

We didn't do anything fancy for the helicopter--hell you'll notice the blades don't even spin--it's just what's called forced perspective. You just place one object closer to the camera to make it look bigger. That's the primary technique used in Lord of the Rings to make the hobbits look small.

Add in some explosions and BAM! You have it.
