Thanks to hummingbird, who posted in our forum about a new Dwarf teaser on Dave – “a shot of the original ship with the trumpet fanfare, a ‘Coming soon’ logo, and ‘New on Dave. Coming soon’ VO.”
Anyone fancy doing our job for us again and supplying a video? Please?
ADDITIONAL ADDITIONAL: OK, a few thoughts follow.
- THE. MUSIC. THE SHOW IS COMING BACK, EVERYONE.
- The ship, then. CGI – and whilst we can’t tell very much from such a short shot, it looks like a combination of the original ship and the Remastered (if you’re being charitable), or the Remastered ship cut in half (if you aren’t). Either way, it’s a huge improvement on the Remastered/VIII ship, whilst not really looking that comparable to the original model shots. Still, budget issues and all that – and besides, we need to see rather more than a brief glimpse of the ship before being able to judge any of the special effects work properly.
- Is the Back to Earth graphic under the Dwarf logo something that appears in the programme, I wonder, or something created especially for the trail?
- Dave really are promoting the shit out of this, aren’t they? First short teasers, then slightly longer ones, with God knows what to follow… this is more like a promotional campaign for a film than anything.
- Finally, whether you like Dave’s presentation or not, you have to admit that the H on the stag is a nice touch.
If you haven’t been holding on tight so far, I suggest you do so – the next few weeks are going to be absolutely mental…
