War of the Worlds Pt1

Author Comments

The real title is Nimbin: The Martian Saga
Pt1: Eve of the War, but that obviously doesnt fit in the name thing. Its called War of the Worlds because thats what it is, this is the first episode of a 27 part series, each episode covering a chapter of the original novel which is over 100 years old now. Tho i have thrown in the odd joke or 2, and modified the story slightly so it would blend into my Nimbin series.

It contains an original soundtrack that was created by my good friend Jim Hort. The entire soundtrack contains over 40 songs, even tho this movie contains only 3 or 4. It also features characters designed by the Spanish artist Juandi, also exclusively for the movie.

Voices and animation all done by me, Caties voice supplied by Electra Prompt.

This will seem new to people who have only ever seen the 1953 George Pal film.


I found this to be quite enjoyable. The best part about it was the animation. You showed such great style with the black and white stuff. It's less cartoonish in those parts. I am glad it was divided into parts. It did seem a bit too long at times.

It was great to include all the extra stuff. It really was like a DVD! Wow, I am just reminded of the days when not everyone had one of those. The colors are nice and vibrant. Even if the black and white stuff didn't have them, it's still nice to look at.

Love it!

Are you going to finish it? I'd love to see the rest, but it kinda looks like you stopped after the heat ray scene, unless your taking a 2 year break or something.

this is and ambitious project

i readed wotws, heard the musical, watched th 1953 film, steven's film, and now im looking for the pendragon dvd and the other company, but wotws was never so much fun!
but i didnt like that you took out the menus on chap five, its good for a flash cartoon to be on tv, but i dont really understand you talking so fast, and im dying to see the art work, and i wonder if there is any page that shows this drawings and that lets you save the image on "my documents" they would be cool on desktop, and i promess i wouldnt use this pictures on a flash (anyways, i dont have flash) coz that would ruin it all and get xpelled from new grounds

that guy he like fell into the piiiiiiiiiiiiiittt!

lol this is very sweet should have checked mine out! but it got blammed but this is actuallt good adaptation of kreig der welten and when is war of teh waorlds p 6 coming?


Nothing spectacular, but it certainly makes me want to watch the rest of them. I liked the eye thing. But why are they talking to a... is that a peice of wood with a face... or... uh, something?
