View Full Version : Max headroom

I just read that a complete series boxset was released a couple months ago. Has anyone tried to imitate the style of max headroom in lightwave? or compositing 3d and real footage?
I'd be interested to see the results and know the process.

Thanks in advance.

wow, that makes me feel old, I can remember watching it way back in the mid 80's, think it was around 1986 when the film came out and then 87 onwards for the 2 series that followed. A surprise for a british show to be made for American TV. I seem to remember seeing some attempts to reproduce the style in real 3D but can't remember where.

I want to be Max Headroom for Halloween. Could be fun.

"An off switch. They'll get twenty years for that!"

Loved the satire and the model work and graphics wasn't bad for a low budget show.

There aren't that many graphics in it when you watch it. This was produced around the time of Flight of the Navigator and Luxor Jr, so any graphics for a TV show would be very basic.

Was anyone on here responsible for the 1987 Chicago incident? Lol
