Hello. 

If you like TOP GUN starring Tom Cruise, you're simply going to LOOOOOOVE this movie! 

*** WATCH FLIGHT OF THE FLYPLANE STEALTH ***


And now for some making of info.  Enjoy kindly as I tear myself in two and interview myself.  We'll just call the interviewer .... I can't think of a witty name now.  Just read on.     



What's the plot?

It's about a pilot, getting ready to fly a very important mission.  The mission is so important, the importance cannot be overstressed. 

What is the mission?

That's classified top secret.  Perhaps he's a spy, looking for a good place to drop a stink bomb. 


Why did I make this movie?


It was around 2005, 2006 and I had just opened a new YouTube account and needed something to upload quickly.

So I got to work.   

Even though this is probably the single simplest movie I ever created, it immediately got views like crazy and the comments were piling up.  YouTube was really fun when it was new.  *sniff*... how I miss those days. 


And Top Gun was the inspiration? 

Naah.  I hadn't seen Top Gun yet when I made this.  I assumed it would be something like this, military pilot and aeroplane flying. 

Actually I still haven't seen Top Gun. 

I had seen that other movie though with Charlie Sheen.  Can't recall it now but it was also something militarylike with planes flying.  I think I had that in mind when I made this.  



Any anecdotes from behind the scenes?

Yeah.  The helmet is actually a kiddies' motorcycle helmet.  It hurt like crap when I forced it on. 

I think it damaged my brain when I put my head through the bottom.  It certainly did squash my skull.  Probably wasn't a good idea but it's the only helmet I had at the moment of filming. 

Taking it off was extremely painful.  It just about broke my nose and nearly tore off my ears. 

The lesson is:  Keep an adult's helmet in your props department.  Don't damage your head, not even for making a movie.  It's not worth it.  


Wasn't it difficult to film a jet zooming through the skies, or very expensive, thinking of all the jet fuel used?

No.  You wouldn't say so if you watch the movie, but that is actually a model and special effect methods.  

It never flew.  A special effects team managed to create the breathtaking sequences of the jetplane using a model and trick photography.  Very specialised stuff.  



Is it scary to go up into the sky like that?

You have to overcome your fears or you'll never do anything.  



Thank you to you men in flight suits. We just want to give a very big thank you to you men and women for going up like that, taking to the skies, fighting for our freedoms! 

Yeah we do a thankless job, don't we.  But we do what we have to.

 YAY! One of my all-time faves that always makes me smile! Hey Magic, someday when you're not to busy, could you post that animation you did of the dancing fuel pump?
