Welcome to the Dune Special Edition Project

This is a project I have been slowly working on over the last few years with the goal of ultimately replacing many of the "outdated" special effects shots in David Lynch's 1984 version of Dune.
The project initially began as an endeavor to build a "proper" ornithopter - one with flapping wings, that neither the movie or the mini-series managed to achieve. However, with the advent of the "fan-edit" the scope of the project has expanded with the goal of updating the effects in all those places in the movie where I feel things could be significantly "improved."
Although I am currently working on this by Myself, it's a large undertaking and if there is anyone interested in helping this project along, feel free to contact Me - We might actually be able to get this project completed with a few more skilled and enthusiastic people!

Emperor's Palace on Kaitain

Have been working a little on this scene, replacing the flat cards that previously made up the background city with some stock 3D sci-fi building models, added the searchlights on the towers and some other lights (still in progress) and finally got around to putting Kaitain's ring in the sky to draw attention down to the Palace, along with a much better sky image.

Next to do is get a decent guild ship model - right now its basically just a big rectangle as I only have the plans for the underside and the upper portion of it is a bit vague and hard to make out in the movie, and then work on the lighting, which needs considerable work - right now the palace foreground is a little too subdued and the city too "close".

 Here's the original "miniature"!!! (Below)
