Alice Through the Looking Glass for a new generation.

9 months of creative effort went into making this machinima piece with the Sims 2. I'm sure I could have made it quicker, but, I lost my creative edge about 1/4th the way thru and had to wait on its return lol.

Anyway, I'd noticed that this was obviously a theme people wanted to see and have tried time and time again but its rarely successful, so, I thought I'd give it a turn myself.

I focused more on creating a new version of Wonderland with the characters and didn't stick with the "story" at all, hoping that maybe it would give the story itself a bit of a new foundation. It's still a bit cliche'd in my opinion, but, its a timeless classic of sorts so I think there isn't much way to avoid that entirely, but I gave it an honest attempt at least.

Enjoy

*soundtrack includes music by Marilyn Manson, and soundbytes from Freesound.org, and Disney*

That was a wonderful film. Great use of chroma keying! Wish I could come out with results like that. :P

I loved the dark tone, the lighting was pretty damn good, it was all just great.

Thank you! That's something I've wanted for a long while too, and after seeing way too many Alice/Manson machinima failures, I decided it was something I'd just have to take into my own hands and get the job done.

Thanks so much for watching all

Holy moo cows batman! That was terrific! It was creepy, yet compelling and I couldn't look away though at some parts seemed so twisted, but in a good way twisted. I'm just in awe.
