I'm working on a second one (had thought that I would get it done today, but alas I had other projects that I had to complete first).

It's a Disney scene and is harder to do than I thought it was going to be   :D 
I'm glad that I'm not the only one :)

I'll be coming up with something soon, now that contests for August are over on other boards, & the diorama contest is done on the PCC. My biggest problem is that I don't watch movies in the theatre - I haven't "been to the movies" in about 15-20 years, & the only things I watch on the computer are films from the 1930s up through the 1960s, but not beyond. We have TV but I never watch it, & I'm not even sure if we have cable - we have what we need to get Internet & that's it.

It doesn't have to be a movie scene. Clickies involved with movies (watching, filming...) works too  ;)

I have an idea for one, just need some time and space first!

Long rumored, now a reality:



I'm reluctant to give this one a title, because Those Who Know, know. But I will relent and entitle it:

"Stwike him, centuwion!"  :lol:

Sorry about the crap quality, my camera is very cheap and I don't know what the best settings are. Also I didn't have armbands for all the troops, nor could I fit red capes on the common soldiewy due to their neckpieces.

EDIT: DANG IT I forgot to put the gold helmet on the centuwion like I planned to.

Ha! I love it Macruran! And not just because its my favorite film! Lots of lovely details there.

And as it happens, from the same film comes my own entry:
The Stoning Scene from Life of Brian

At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

I'm itching to start a LoB topic on here, as soon as this competition is over....

Wow, both Brian pics are great! I promise: if I win the lottery this weekend, I'll sponsor a full-length playmobil version of Life of Brian!
