I didn't have the equipment to watch your video in 3D but it was interesting! Visually, you were able to reproduce the texture of old films

How did you make the sounds effects? Where have you find those sounds? The mood is amazing!

@MBstudioHow did you make the sounds effects? Where have you find those sounds? The mood is amazing!
freesound.org is where I find the sound effects. I choose to seach only the "creative commons 0" sounds, since I don't want to hassle with lengthy credits. I did a bit of EQing on these particular effects to match the early talkie sound I was going for, but a couple of these sounds I previously used on The Winterlympic Games. Also, when adding sound effects, don't be afraid to layer up a couple different sounds. For the helmet hitting the ground, I layered two different sounds, each with a particular quality I liked, but neither sounded complete on their own. For the raygun shots in "Changing of the Guard" I think I layered 4 or 5 different gun sounds. Of course, more isn't always more, it can be overdone.
My philosophy when choosing a sound is whether it's a sound we relate to in real life. A sound we know well, can feel more real sometimes than a real world sound we don't know. For example: in my first brickfilm "The Voyage" I used the sound of a minivan door sliding shut, when one of the characters slides down the ramp. Not very realistic perhaps, but we have a tactile feel of the momentum needed to close one of those van doors, so we "feel" the sound in a way that makes it more real than just hearing it.
So it's kind of impressionistic in that way, which is something I like to do. But maybe you prefer more exact realism, your style is completely up to you!

Okay, awesome. Thank you for your tips! This is really useful! Maybe you could make a Tutorial on it in Brick à Brack! I think that it could help lots of people who want to bring to their movies an old sound effect.

Has there been a tutorial on how to make these awesome 3D-Effects?
I hope it is not that complicated and expensive in terms of software.

Thanks everyone!!!

I built a lego slider rig which allowed a C920 to budge over a couple millimeters in order to take separate right/left eye exposures. I actually did 4 exposures, right and left eye, with and without the LED fire turned on, but only one right and one left eye exposure are really necessary for the 3D effect. Being able to keep track of multiple exposures while shooting was really important, and Dragonframe did that well. I'm not sure which other capture software does multiple exposures like that. Theoretically you could do the separate passes in one exposure, but it would cause a lot more work and having to mentally keep track of the frames and hope everything lines up...

As far as editing, I only used Vegas 14, which I got for $20 and has a pretty handy 3D workflow built into it. Keep an eye on humblebundle.
