Tested Presents: “A Farewell to Arms”

We can finally reveal a project we’ve been working on since the beginning of the year, when Tested visited Weta Workshop in New Zealand! In collaboration with the world-class artists, craftspeople, and filmmakers at Weta Workshop, Adam Savage and Tested proudly present this short film. This kicks off a new mini-series that follows our journey as we put this film together just one week at Weta!

  1. I’m no doubt going to be on tested.com even more now than ever before. I can’t wait to see how this series works out.

  2. Fantastic! I’m lucky enough to have been able to visit New Zealand. This video has three of my favorite things: Tested, Weta, and NZ!

  3. Oh, there must have been a lot of quoting “‘Tis but a scratch,” – “A Scratch?! Your arm’s off!” going around. In fact, I’m flabbergasted that the comments haven’t already started re-enacting the entire Black Knight scene.

  4. Okay I’m saving this to watch when I get home from work, but let me tell you I am very excited. /excitedface

  5. You mean they didn’t lop off your arm for realities sake then screw it back on later?

    I’m disappointed Mr S, surely your MB’s work would have told you you had plenty of time, as long as you limited the reshoots and kept up your fluids.

    Next time you need some lightning shooting out of somewhere and the moody smoke, no wait, I think I’m going into the Dark Crystal, or is it Fraggle Rock… hmm, or was it the Muppets, one of the classics. How do you feel about dragons? A little belching smoke and a roar or two, maybe with a little Life of Brian thrown in (you can sing can’t you) oh and the loin cloth, I think you could pull it off, I mean that’s what special effects are for am I right…
    A nw adventure star is born: Adam “The Savage” Savage in “Let’s Save a Bit of the World!”.
    I can see it now.

  6. Well, Adam has an honorary doctorate from the University of Twente (Netherlands), so technically he already is a pulp hero: Doc Savage

  7. Adam, you recreated the Lancelot napping pose perfectly, gave me flashbacks to when I was a kid and saw Excalibur for the first time. It also occurs to me that Patrick Stewart never had hair – ever.
