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is a project I have been slowly working on over the last few years with the goal of ultimately replacing many of the "outdated" special effects shots in David Lynch's 1984 version of Dune.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!

Harkonnen Thopter Leaves Arrakeen

 (click image to enlarge)
Currently working redoing the shot of the Harkonnen ornithopter carrying the captive Paul & Jessica heading for the desert.

Not quite sure how I am going to do all the flame elements as I don't have a library of them, and I need to work on the lighting and the model of the Arrakeen Palace/Mountain needs a lot more work too.
Still, I am liking how this is looking so far as I think showing the relationship between the city and the palace gives the whole thing a "larger" feel.

Here's a frame from the original shot.
