#2

Hi folks,

from time to time I watched CG Society Forums and I have to say that it’s really amazing stuff all around! Finally I found time for registration and I’m happy to join this contest, btw it’s first time that me or any of my team mates join challenge here, so, here’s the stuff…

Software: Primarily Blender (80% of modeling, all animation, postprocessing), Maya (army vehicles and cars modeling)

Story is about 30m tall sperm that destroys streets of NewYork like city - Flagella City. There’s only one scientist that can stop this madness :slight_smile: whole story is placed in about 1960’s

We first heard about contest a month after it has started so we hope that we can finish in time :stuck_out_tongue:

Here are team members and their jobs in process of creation:

Slange: animator, character modeler, rigger, cloth expert :cool:
Kroci: environment modeling, texturing
elzet: cars and army vehicles modeler, rendering optimalisation
and me: director, screenplay, character modeler, rigger, animator

well, we’ve finished this movie but I can’t manage to upload it, I tried 3 times and 3 times it failed…first it was problem with connection, ok, but 2 times I got error that “this is available only for CGS members”, does this mean I cannot upload my video if I’m not a CGS member?

still trying to upload…does anybody know if there would be a problem if I uploaded it on my ftp and posted here a link? will judges watch it?

we were working really hard and it would be really sad if everything crashed because of uploading…


#13

it looks like you are uploading via Portfolio Uploader not Challenge Uploader… here you can find the link to the right uploader http://features.cgsociety.org/challenge/b-movie/deliverables.php (under FLV encoders section click “here”)

damn, you’re right, thank you for saving us;)

I think my brain is not able to think after last week:D

I’d like to buy you a beer, maybe we’ll meet one day…I’ve got to remember this :slight_smile:
