hey kirt, i'd love to work on the cockpit for that spaceship, i know the spaceship is already in the works, but is that guy also doing the cockpit?

will you be able to see the cockpit from the outside? (i know the windshield is dark and reflective, but will there be scenes where it's open?)

if not, it would be pretty easy to integrate i guess

please tell me what to do =)

MaDuece - You've probably noticed by now that I'm adding concept art threads. I'll add/update the first post in those threads with the new artwork as I complete it. I'll also make a thread that links to the storyboards later on.

fist - Well, it looks like the interior of the cockpit has already started but you're more than welcome to help on any part of it. The views will mostly be inside the ship. So, I imagine we'll have to make a cut away set for the different camera angles. I don't want to shoot through the window because that will probably obscure things with reflections on the glass.

We'll need POV angles for both aliens looking at each other, POV angle for alien2 looking at his instrument panel, extreme closeups of both, medium shots from the front of the canopy (where we can get both in the shot) & POV angle for alien1 looking at his left panel.

This will be more clear when I get storyboards done.

Hello everyone,

is there any kind of time line regarding when this project will be finished completly I.e. animation/sound/editing/compositing. I really wonder most about the animation. How long will that take? Is 6 months, to a year from now, to short of a time for this, the animation to be completed?

regards.

JIII

JIII - We started this in January and I'm estimating 2 years for completion. So, sometime in 2005 we'll release the final.

(info was in the BIG thread ... but it's still a good question. Last time I'm going to answer it though. So, PLEASE READ THE BIG THREAD!!)

Holy freaking sh!t...

I leave town for a few days and look what happens... Things get organized... mass props to lildragon...

Well, I noticed the new hero gun posted in the closed starter thread and was wondering what you wanna do kirt. I can continue on it or relinquish it to the new guy... let me know, I'll be happy to start something new if he's got it closer to what you want...

Anyways, welcome everyone... this is gonna kick @ss!!! :airguitar

JIII - Some would argue that I was mad before I started this project. My current state of mind is refreshingly creative though. I can't help but get inspired when I see all the great work that's being done here. This is going to be a nice film that we can all be proud of.

JDex - I think he was modelling it just for fun. Please don't give up on your gun. You're so very close to completion! I like what you have shown so far.

Swoop - I don't think we're ready for a page yet. I want to at least have all of the characters and the storyboard done. Seems premature to go with a site when I'm still throwing up concept stuff and no one knows the full story but me and my wife.

Hey all,

Questions, questions, questions, I know but here is 1 of mine: Dont we have to agree to some name giving protocol to our models (and pieces of models)?

Like (for me):

"Propanebottlehandle" is a bit long.
"PB_handle" looks better but is it OK for you guys?
