Storyboards! Posted simply to obey challenge rules, since they're pretty darned crappy as you will see

Hey everyone....we are alive and well

Sorry for the lack of updates...we've been loaded with other projects on the go so this one has been put onto the backburner....that being said we'll be finishing it up this weekend so that it's ready for Monday.

Here is a playblast showing the crash sequence blocking. Note that the helicopter no longer freezes in water, do to time restrictions (and how long it would have taken to pull off that effect) we've simply crashed it into a dock now

http://www.theonlyt.com/Main/Animat.../playblast1.mov

Here's what the helicopter looks like. Note that the model was taken from a model library we have here at MAKE.

Great work people...

The voting thread will go up this Friday, so if you wish to tweak the entry you have until then.

When the camera swings around the econd loop, the shot kinda lose energy or at least there is a jarring in the smoothness that was set up in the first curve.

Well...at this point it would take us until at least Monday-ish.....but then there's still no promising that it'll be done (we had a last-minute job come up Wednesday night...and therefore won't get to work on the Freeze entry until Saturday at the earliest).

That being said....we have some crappy-looking test comps done....so if extending the deadline isn't possible, we could still probably post those anyways.

Wow guys, you're doing it reaaally fine! That image looks great, so the movie does! (cool camera angles and fast movements... It looks like motion-blur will be the key to 'reality'..? )

I'd do that in every case, yeah... Then people know at least that you also put time in this 'War'.

Very good luck on it... Hopefully you'll have a nice entry at the end!
