Chilean Scifi, lookin’ good!

December 30th, 2007 by Timo Vuorensola

Just bumped on this story on Twitch about a Chilean science fiction comedy Chile Puede, which has the look and feel of good production values, although the budget of the film – I suspect – won’t be anything close to what a film like this would cost in USA. Check out the trailer here via YouTube, or with a bit better quality on film’s official site.

Google Maps

So, this is more like a test than a very important blogpost. Google just announced today that they’ve added an easilly embeddable maplink to their Google Maps -service. Here, let’s try out how it works – this is Star Wreck Store’s new address on Google Maps:

Näytä suurempi kartta

I have to say this is a very well organised service, and the new embedding option makes it much more usable, once again. Few problems there are, though. First, we are not located in the middle of a street, although Google Maps likes to see it that way, and second, funnily enough, Google Maps doesn’t notice the Tampere University or Tampere-talo which are located on the big empty lots, but does mention the Tullintori shopping mall…

…they’d come up with the design of Kalinka. Well, at least our fan from Helsinki, avaruus-apina (Finnish for “spacemonkey”), also known from our forum as Joutilas, and by his real name, Petri Liuhto, did. He’s been drawing/painting cool stuff from Star Wreck and also some fan art for Iron Sky. Here’s his latest work, C.P.P. Kalinka

Go check out his gallery at deviantart!

Ps. My kindness towards my wife got awarded by Lynch‘s Twin Peaks golden box and INLAND EMPIRE, of which the latter I’m about to watch very soon! So remember, be kind to your loved ones and you might get Lynched as well!

I’m dreaming of a white christmas…

December 24th, 2007 by Timo Vuorensola

…and thanks to the modern, snowless Decembers here in Finland, I’ll keep on dreaming. Meanwhile, some other good things of Christmas remain. Them being: food and presents. And although we cannot blog any food directly to you, we’ve prepared a little present on Energia‘s behalf. The idea was ignited by one of our fans, who was asking about the speeches of Sherrypie from Star Wreck on our forum. We realized that we haven’t released the script of Star Wreck, although we didn’t have any reason to hold it back.

So, as this year’s Christmas present, Energia releases the script of Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning in it’s latest and most complete form. Since the script was never officially ‘finished’, and kept on changing until the very last months of production, the version I put together is different from the film itself, but the clearest one we had. Hope you enjoy!

As the film is in Finnish, so is the script too – sorry for our international audience. But fear not, we have a little something for you as well! I dug out the remaining storyboards that had survived through the years, scanned them and pushed them online.

Ps. Easiest way to view the script is to either print it or view it as flashpaper (two buttons on the right corner of the Scribd screen), but you can also download the .pdf versions from here: script and storyboards.

The whole Energia team would like to wish you a peaceful and merry Christmas. Keep on Wrecking in the free world!
