thanx adlib, this is test candidate for teaser, all texts and logo are just placeholder, so please ignore it. any C&C is welcomed and appreciated.

Nice dynamic on this.Looks very promising! And all the action looks great!Anyway depends on the sound to join the images,and the trailer must tell something to the viewers.


06 June 2008, 10:46 AM
Yes, sound is something we are missing, i´m looking at you Juraj Karkus. This friday, i´m going to pay you a visit. i will leave with music in my hardrive or with still beating heart in my hand :)

06 June 2008, 04:48 PM
Amazing! :buttrock:

06 June 2008, 08:27 PM
Great 3d scenes... a promising trailer!:applause:

06 June 2008, 02:14 AM
Cool!! :) When you say text is placeholder do you mean just the style of it, or the words too? (That'd be my only comment, that repeating "no hope" feels weird.)

06 June 2008, 09:30 AM (

thanx guys for generous comments!

everything about texts is placeholder, i just put them to see how timing works.
this is the final version, at least for now. we already changed it four times, so it may change.

06 June 2008, 09:51 AM
Stunning! The color scheme, the fighting scenes really make it look like a game's cinematic! The animation it's also it hand-animated? We're looking forward to see it with sound and music...will be an amazing piece!
Keep it up!

06 June 2008, 07:04 PM
thanx for coment, we really appreciate it

Rasto, animator of this project, says that all is hand-animated

hi guys, here it finally is. it was long hard way but i think it was worth it. making of is little bit rough, i worked on it in very late hours. what makes me sad is fact that sound guy didn´t make it. there is no sound, no spoken word, so it is not so clear as it should be what is going on in this story of ours. sorry about that.

06 June 2008, 10:14 AM
WOW NO WORDS just.. WOW! Nice timing and action.Its LOOK VERY GOOD also without sound! You guys are in the winner way!:buttrock:

06 June 2008, 01:14 PM
Wow...that turned out amazing! Talk about action PACKED! It looks like you guys put an insane amount of work into it. It's a shame the sound didn't make it but it was a joy to watch even without it.

This entry is going to win some prizes for sure!

06 June 2008, 04:59 PM
thanx guys, we certainly skipped some beauty sleep because of it :)

06 June 2008, 02:48 AM
It turned out really really good.
You should still do the sound, I think. It's worth it.


06 June 2008, 03:55 AM
Really Really Great Work!!

Even without sound, we don't get tired of watching because the visual is amazing. Very dynamic scenes :bounce:

Good luck on judging. :thumbsup:

Software: 3ds max

thanx guys for comments, but unfortunately, to add sound is not possible because our musician/sound guy has serious family problems.

i uploaded final video again, because first time the teaser/making of/trailer segements were in incorrect order. otherwise is exactly the same.

This is massive to watch. Good job, Good luck!

V tichosti som sledoval cely vyvoj a konstatujem, ze ste odviedli kus poctivej roboty. Velmi z toho citit "herny priemysel", co je zaujimave, pretoze to pridava dalsi rozmer. Chyba zvuk, to urcite. Mozno ste mohli vyuzit nejaku orchestralku a dat to do kreditov. Nemyslim, ze si tu robia az taku tazku hlavu z autorskych prav (vela sutaziacich to tak spravilo), a v konecnom dosledku to nieje komercna vec, za ktoru zarobis peniaze. Vela zdaru!

06 June 2008, 01:08 PM
thanx for positive comment!

zvuk serie aj nas, cely cas nam hudobnik slubovale ze to urcite bude bude, az na posledny den nam oznamil ze nema cas na to a ze mu je to luto atd atd. co narobis, zabit ho nemozem.
