Stargate SG-UK Goa'uld Extermination

Stargate is an MGM Trademark

Back in 2007 we made a Stargate Movie (short)
Sadly MGM swiftly banned the movie from youtube, then oddly announced 2 days later that fans should make a movie. We didn't bother re-editing it to re-upload to YT.

I just stuck the movie on Megavideo (which is sadly now closed down) So there is no way to watch this movie OR its Sequel that we made.

This blog post in essence is just a footnote in history about the 2 episodes we made (Inspired by Super Team Productions in london) who had a fan made 6 part series called "Call It A Stargate"   which also sadly fell foul to MGM Legal.

On the opening credits ide cut out a jaffa and made individual PSD files each with an extra layer of "glow" and they were used like a training simulation where they appear with a yellow gown (sort of beam into the scenario) and when you shot them they would glow red and essentially beam away. Used particle illusion to give our Airsoft toys an Entar effect when fired.

This gave us that kinda (oo i wonder what episode that scene is from) during the credits. We shot it like a training simulation and used the footage of hammond and jack running scenarios at the S.G.C,   While then cutting back to us in an old warehouse in Magul by the river Alt.    (Images of that location here).

The first episode its self was based on us being dropped off (by a puddle jumper) at a stargate on the edge of the milkyway, the plan.. to come back into the milkyway from the outer edge, taking out the goa'uld as we make our way back in to our galaxy. Only to be confronted by a kull and a load of jaffa. This thing was essentially just 1 afternoon in the woods with 2 fake hand guns and 2 fake machine guns. Funny day because mark had no idea wtf we were going to film, i just pulled out to Atlantis stickers and he says.. NO WAY!!.. and i pulls out the guns and says.. yes way.. then we just shot stuff of us kickin ass. Then i edited it together with original SG  footage, though i did add a load more effects when the jaffa where being wasted by us lol.

Sadly the SG-UK1 was only shot with a 320x240 camera, even then the SG-UK 2 was only shot with a 640x480 (so both movies had a pretty rough look to them, no1 even more so)

The Video Was Pretty Much Banned Within 8 Minuets Of Uploading
Both Got Wiped Out

Really sad to considering the job i had trying to line up muzzle flashes on 320x240 footage

 The first SG-UK had a pretty amazing opening theme tune mixed from a number of movies & a ps2 game, all arranged into an intro theme tune. The full specs where listed on the unreleased Soundtrack Box Art (that was made just for us) and not released to the public. (nor will it be)

 The DVD Box was based on the template of the Die Hard 1 dvd, and was chopped around in photoshop till the back of the box suited my needs. Again this as just fan made and is not for retail or use besides educational usage, as i tried to complete all aspects (write, film, edit, arrange & design) only stage not completed was marketing.

I created a PDF book for SG-UK 1 featuring screen shots, behind the scenes shots and images of it in the editor, it was around 18mb (when i get a chance i will upload it and link to it here)  Mark created a PDF for SG-UK 2 i shall upload that as well if i still have his one (check back for them).

Sadly i can't upload any of the actual footage/music due to copyright reasons.

We also made 3 Highlander fan movies and when i got fed up following i took the reins and insisted we do a movie of my own design (rather than ripping stuff off) that was called Target Assassin.
The last stargate project i worked on where the HD screen savers for the Diagnostics and Pegasus logo on this Stargate blog here check out the screen savers tab, their pretty epic.

Note wraith & jones disbanded in late 2009 when i got tired of carrying the work load. Googling wraith and jones productions and googling wraith and friends productions pretty much says it all..

Please note to MGM Legal, we are not offering the movie, episodes OR music here and this page is merely for documentation of an educational project we worked on using stargate as its basis.
