I very glad to present my HD 720p Sci-Fi trailer from my own NO-BUDGET Sci-Fi Shortfilm I made with Friends. KURZZEITHELDEN (Short Time Heroes) is a privately financed no budget science fiction short movie, which took over 16 years in the making. Most people who worked on it did it in their free time. That is the reason for the long finishing process.
Also during the years technology progressed, which is why we had to keep up. Effects which in the beginning were made under complicated processes could be realized later in a quarter of the time. And as we did most effects in PAL it would have been impossible to finish the project if we had to do all over again in 720p. We began on film (Super 16mm) and the last scenes were filmed in HD. Of course there are differences in quality, because we had to scale up from Letterbox Digi beta PAL to HD 720p. Therefore it wasn't easy for me to keep the film alive over all the years and also keep the quality up to todays standard. Many things happened and many people came and went away. Some worked on only one scene other joined for over 5 years or even longer.
I am the producer, director and D.P. We build the spaceship cockpit in a garage in 4 weeks. Was alot fun. We were shooting in 1999, 2000, 2003 and 2005. It is a wonder, that this film is finished NOW! The film is 45min long and has 5.1 Sound. I am thanking all the people who helped me so far, working on my movie. You all did an amazing job. Enjoy the trailer...The Film is now going to FILMFESTIVALS!! See you THERE??
