I have posted this thread:
HEADS UP: Show us your progress\ (

Think of it as an unofficial staff meeting.

What you post can be anything.

Looking forward to it

Looking forward to start tomorrow evening.

So we are still alive and worked hard on our entry. Since weve got one more month we thought we add two more shots.Its already paying back in terms of sleep deprivation :rolleyes:
We have the main animations and cameras done. Still some fine tuning but the main stuff is finished.
At the moment schnitzell is working on some nice screendesigns for the cockpitshots and i am working on some massive destructions.
Here you can watch the (nearly) finished animatic. Hope you like our "work"
