The Invasion of Cardiff

I discovered today a site called 'RhysyNet: A fairly pointless and badly-designed website dedicated to the art of Rhysy". In it, amongst some other rather impressive CGI projects, is the Invasion of Cardiff:

"After seeing Steven Spielberg's rare but extreme foolishness, I was inspired to create my own version of the War of the Worlds. Set in modern-day Cardiff with Jeff-Wayne inspired tripods, handling and flying machines, and lots and lots of explosions. Not an animation but a QuickTime panorama – view the destruction of inner-city Cardiff as if you were there ! Heavily inspired by those wonderful illustrations in the Jeff Wayne album. Not set in Victorian London, since Jeff Wayne is making that anyway. "

"Bows and arrows against the lightning. They haven't seen the heat ray yet."

Awesome stuff! UUUUUULLLLLLLLLLLLAAAAAAAAA

I love this kind of CGI fun. Makes the mind run with various ideas.
