Short Film: "Z52" Looking for help.


Hi. I’m looking for a little help on a project of mine. I’ve been working on building up assets for a short sci-fi film set in the world of Robotech since last june. I’m in need of some assistance as I work full time and things are getting more and more hectic at work as milestone deadlines get closer.

Mainly I’m looking for environment modellers (any software) with the final meshes to be exported to LW

Texture artists (Lightwave) to texture the environment

And possibly special effects and animation work to be done (again in LW 7.5).

This is a slow, long term project that I’d be willing to share and get help with, but not relinquish control of. So, if you’re looking for a project to help on, want to make sure it has unified direction, and can do professional-near professional work… post away.


mike I am interested in helping with environmental modeling. Though I have not done much of it in the past I would be willing to give it a go. Give me and idea on what to model and ill post ya what I come up with then u can tell me if the quality is good enough.


Very cool models. I may have some time here and there (between power naps) to play… mostly animation though, if you need it.


Wow, thanks guys. Let me get a little more organized (and get my computer fixed) and I’ll post a little more in-depth info.



Let me know when you need any help with the evironment modeling.

probably you all should use private messages… stop using this threat as a flame war… or start another threat, just dont use this threat.

Come on, guys, I don’t think he meant nothing by it…

Oh, well, I hope they haven’t spoiled your project, MikeRB

If they have, well, I’ll permanently attatch myself to this project to make sure it fails properly…hehe…

What do you need from me, sir?!!


Hi Mike. Just a note so that you don’t forget.


Let’s keep it somewhat professional shall we?
There’s a link at the bottom of each post where you can report the post to the forum moderator. Please use it instead of turning someone’s thread into a school-yard name-calling mess.

Thank you,

(yeah, Co-Ops has a Moderator now)


Sorry, Kirt, I guess it was partly my fault…

oh, and congrats on moderating position!!

You’re a good moderator, and with your ability as a concept artist, I’m sure a lot of projects down here will go far!!
