Statistically, there's only a 25% chance that I'll finish, so... don't get your hopes up! ;) But thanks for the interest, I guess that'll make me struggle harder to complete.

I ll be watching close your progress and hope 25% is enough for you to make it through. Btw, very cool your latest commercial add.

Good luck!

OK, unlike everyone else who's close to finished, I still don't know what I'm going to do... here's one concept sketch: an expedition has found a giant hole in the arctic ice, and the camera wooshes down to reveal THE LOST CITY OF ICE, all illuminated in sub-surface scattering and GI bounces.

Another idea involves a ship sailing through an ice canyon, towards a massive gate of ice, leading into.... yea, same thing as above.

There's also a third idea that starts out with some underwater architecture, and then we break through the surface, to reveal.... well, you know what. :)

This reminds me of the original movie "The Thing" where the scientists form a circle to outline the size of a frozen alien spaceship. That was a great establishing shot.

I like the hole in the ice idea!

Interesting comparison, Mustan! Haven't seen The Thing in a while...

Here's a new sketch:

Looks epic, I like it
Looking forward to see more :)

For one reason or other, it made me think about Lord of The Rings, when the fellowship row by the huge statues :D

That looks pretty cool! Smart move to put that boat there, the scene feels huge. I would love to see that shot worked out.

Now FORCE yourself to finish this baby!

Hey, thanks. I'm down with the flu AND 200% overloaded at work, so... looks like another bailout is likely from me. :(

I did do a rough animatic though, I suppose I could post that.

@JB: Thanks, I'll do my best! I'll try to finish ASAP, even if I don't make the deadline (not that I've finished a single of the other FXwars clips that didn't make the deadline...)

So, I'm back to normal health again. Now I just have to cope with the 200% load at work!

But I have the entire evening tonight for this winter project, so I guess I'll just have to speed model!

Will update later.
