Hi everyone,

We are a team of 8 persons and these challenge is a incredible thing because for 2 weeks, we have begun to concept about a steampunk video :thumbsup:.

So we try to make a video about 2-3 minute which describe the Icare's fall with a plane fight (2 vs 2).

Hi everyone. We are not death but all the members team works and its difficult to progress on the video.

Here you can find the history. Good reading.

The sun shine on the sky. Suddenly, shadows pass over the clouds and two planes emerge just front the sun. They fly faster and pass on both sides of the camera. The title appear : "Projet Icare".

The planes fly side by side. On the first's blank we can see a name : “Dédale”. The second fly just over “Dédale". On its, we can see the name "Icare". Dédale appears older than Icare. Higher in the sky, just over Dédale and Icare, two other planes approach. They are darker and more sophisticated. They deviate and go off-screen. From a blow they speed up and go to Dédale and Icare. The camera follow them in their fall. They start to shoot them and Dédale and Icare avoid them. The two enemies pass between the other planes. Dédale and Icare go up. The two enemies make half-turn. Dédale and Icare fly through a big cloud. The two enemies still follow them. On their blank we can see "Minos 01" and "Minos 02". Into the cloud, Dédale and Icare fly and avoid the fire of the Minos. Dédale and Icare separate them. Minos 01 follow Icare and Minos 2 follow Dédale.
Dédale and Minos 02 go out the cloud.

Icare circle on the cloud.

Dédale and Minos 02 go into a cave located on a mountain.

Icare and Minos 01 go out the cloud. . They go to some mountains which appear over the clouds.

Dédale and Minos 02 continue their road through the cave. They separate them, Dédale on the lower part. Minos launch a rocket which blow up the wall of the cave. A lot of remains fall front Dédale, who pass through the hole made by the explosion and finds itself behind Minos. He start to shoot them. They pass through a ancient door and arrived on an giant cave, a big Minotaur sculpture have been lightning by some god ray. A ruin city have be hung all around the cave.

Icare and Minos fly between the mountain. After one of them, they arrive front of a house. Two guns emerge from the roof and start to fire them. Minos, shoot Icare. They turn around the house.

Minos follow Dédale just over the city. They fly to the Minotaur. Dédale arrive near the head of the statue and start to fly down around the Minotaur. Minos still follow him. They arrive just over the water which cover the feet of the statue. Dédale go up right before spitting itself. Le Minos go up earlier. Dédale arrive behind Minos and start to shoot them.

Icare still alive and followed by Minos. Icare make a acrobatics figure and arrive just behind the Minos. He start to aim it.

Dédale and Minos still follow each other on the cave.

Minos open 4 trap doors and 4 rocket launch form them. They make a curve and divide itself on two other rocket and which fly to Icare. They blow up just on the front of Icare. He start to fly up and the Minos follow him.

Dédale follow Minos. They pass near the exit. Dédale turn to take it. Minos make a half-turn and follow Dédale. Dédale is on a tunnel. They fly between a lot of columns. Dédale close its steam evacuation. A bag start to inflate.

Icare continue its rise towards the sun. Minos follow him. Ice start to appear over the fuselage of the two planes.

The Dédale's bag continue has to inflate. He hang off the bag and the bag explode. A huge steam cloud cover the entire tunnel.
Icare and Minos continue their rising. Minos slow down and fall. Icare pass through a sea cloud and arrive on the limit of the space.

Dédale go out the cave. He release a mine behind him. Minos go out the cave and explode with the mine. Dédale rise to the sky.

Icare start to slow down and fall to the ground. He disappear on a cloud.

Dédale continue his road to the horizon.
