War Of The Worlds Woking Trailer 2007

War Of The Worlds In Woking 2007 Trailer, set in Woking, as it should be. Back the roots of the original H.G. Wells story.

Richard K. has done a splendid job of rendering Woking to dust in a digital attack from ’scrutinising lifeforms’. From smart sound effects, to ‘heart rendering’ (read: hilarious) explosions of landmarks in and around Woking.

The voiceover and music, which I believe are from Jeff Wayne’s Musical War Of The Worlds, is absolutely perfect.

Even though it’s only two and a half minutes long, it packs a real punch. The tension actually builts as the invaders come closer to Earth. The digital effects fit in well, and I love the bit where … ah, but that’d be telling. Just watch it!

I bet some people wish they’d digitally blown up some of the dives though, those places are frequented by aliens already.

BTW, Thanks to all the people who emailed me on this, it must be just about everyone I know, especially Paul cos he got the first email across.

Now, I’m off the play it just one more time…

See images of the actual War Of The Worlds Martian Sculpture which is in Woking.

War Of The Worlds And Woking, Horsell Common

“An Everyday Town Once Had A Mysterious Visitor.”

No one would have believed, in the last years of the nineteenth century, that human affairs were being scrutinized, written down, rearranged and composed into a short but powerful novel. A man busied himself, merging intelligences greater than Man’s and yet as mortal as his own.

A leafy suburban town became the focus of his writings, the first strike point of an invasion from outerspace. From Mars. One world crept silently towards another. Thus was born, War Of The Worlds.

Herbert George Wells.

As well as the Martian, a Crashed Pod and Bacteria Trail were built. The surrounding area was changed too to compliment the structure.

The Woking War Of The Worlds Martian Sculpture was conceived, designed and built by Michael Condron, Sculptor in 1998 and still looks as cool as it did then.

It is a shame that Woking didn’t utilise and build upon, even work with Universal Studios to promote the town centre and surrounding countryside (Horsell Common inparticular).
