Nanotechnological Tuesday by ScruffyLad Nanotechnological Tuesday by ScruffyLad
A submission to the B Movie contest over at ([link])

I used the "B-Movie Generator" ([link]) and got a number of hilarious results. This one though, when I read it, it just popped in my head, what the poster should look like. The angle, the grass and sky, even that the text should be yellow. It was weird. :P

And now for the other contest requirements:

Title: Nanotechnological Tuesday
Year: 1999
Tagline 1: "It's Tuesday. Do you know where your nanites are?"
Tagline 2: "No longer human. Not yet robot. Already unsafe."

Plot: In the not-too-distant future, mankind has developed impressive new technologies. But the pace of advancement has outrun both ethics and common sense.
After a large segment of the population received a batch of "bad" nanites, they were marked, and given additional nanite treatments to keep them docile.
On Tuesday, the docility ends.

James, a marked nanite carrier, who works as a drone in a large corporate office.
Victoria, his wife, who's remained with him, hoping to someday get her old husband back.
Don, the boss at work, who stirs up the initial conflict with James, until James finally snaps, overriding his docility controls.
David, the young government agent sent to bring James down, who finds himself facing more than he bargained for.

Been looking through the other entries, and I have to say this is Damn Awesome. Wish I could actually use 3D properly :\

Thanks! :)
On this one, I had a pretty strong image in my head of what I wanted to do, which helped immensely. (I'd say I achieved it about 95%.)

As for the 3d part, that was pretty easy, since it's basically Poser stuff. The trick is figuring out how to get the most out of the software. How to use lighting, shading, etc. I played a bit with that and if I recall correctly, this is actually several different renders with different settings, blended together. And then post-work of course. Only the man was done in poser. The sky, grass, text, bar code, and some of the shadows are all post.

I just hope it come out looking "1999" enough. ;) I had considered a 1980s version, but didn't think I could get it to come out 80s-ish enough.

The style sort of reminds me of the game Stupid Invaders, which was released 2000, so I think you're ok on the time period front. The figure especially reminds me of the character Bolok. He's a hired hitman with a gun that freezes aliens into blocks of ice.

But back to my original point: it's great! I think you have a decent chance of winning.

I like it. It's a bit rough and unpolished, but I suppose that's how it should be. Solar approves. :)

Thanks. :) I was trying to make it late 90s looking.
I can see a lot of things that could be improved about it, but still, I think it pretty much matches what popped into my head when the generator spat out that particular title. :)

Yup, I think of the 7 I've "critiqued" tonight, You just may have won.

To brevity's sake, I won't say more.

Gosh, thanks. :)

Maybe this one will do better than my other submissions. We'll see. There's usually a few good ones that come in at the last minute.

And a few more details:
This was made using Poser 7 and Paint Shop Pro 8. The figure is James, which comes with Poser 6.
I considered doing a real life photo instead, but in the end, went with poser for simplicity's sake.
