That time of year has swept around again without warning, leaving most of us wondering where on earth the past twelve months have gone. For most of you this will hopefully be a fun-packed, relaxing week involving far too much food, frivolity and merriment; here at FXhome the team will still be beavering away on AlamDV3 over the holiday period in order to get it finished as soon as is humanly possible. No rest for the wicked, as they say.

Let's get retro

It's been a difficult but very exciting year for us. It all kicked off with the release of Chromanator, which was one of the most exhilerating and stressful experiences any of us have ever had (until the release of AlamDV3, of course). The anticipation in the chatroom as the hours ticked down was really quite remarkable, and I doubt we'll forget Andreas' special Swedish japery anytime soon.

The news section turned its eye on many talented FXhomers this year, from the professional danger antics of Adam Kirley, through the comic absurdities of Dennis & Ronnie to the grand schemes of the M.A.F.I.A. team. In the FXhome Cinema, competition was high with excellent and ambitious projects, including the top-rated No! and Ghost Soldiers, as well as the highly entertaining Prodition and recent entry Workplace Violence. 2004 also continued to see FXhomers hit the big time, with John Carter globe-hopping with Recon 2020 and the inimitable Sollthar gearing up for development on Nightcast.

Despite all the sleepless nights of programming, this has been a great year for us and for FXhome. With AlamDV3 about to explode into existence and DigiGrade on the horizon, 2005 should prove to be even more thrilling. We hope you'll all stick around to experience it with us!

In the meantime, enjoy the holiday period and your own festivals. Don't forget to send some cake to the FXhome office! Merry Christmas people!

Merry Christmas, when I saw the pic of Marco I spitted water all over my keyboard. I'm now trying to save it from a certain death.

Merry Christmas, and I hope the promo Csb was working on with Sollthar will be on next years list. I also wish Csb good luck with the press release for all the new programs even though its going to be chaos on the forums if it works the way you guys want it to. Maybe you guys will need more mods wink .

Well one or five more people worth mentioning are Sollthar, Twisted Studios, and M.A.F.I.A ( in my opinion anyway). Sollthar I hope NightCast goes well and hopefully it will come to the US at least on video. If it doesn’t just post up a topic and all us Yanks ( or Czechs ) will buy a DVD, and you can act famous and sign it like Sidey and Mecha did biggrin. Sidey and Mecha I hope collage works out for you guys and you find the time to work on Red Sky and Concrete so we get to see it. Also Ajjax and CX3 I hope "you know what" goes well and we get to see it soon. and Also that your TV show gets good ratings and all that.

Yep, Merry Christmas to the rest of you scrubs. I hope everyone receives all the filmmaking goods they have on they’re list. Hopefully some of you (Evman, Pencil, Atom, Ben) will stop trashing the forum and stick on topic in the topics you take part in. Now time to stop with my horrible grammar I think Ive written enough. Anyway once again a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Edit: Make that 6 people I also wish Andreas good luck with Lajf hopefully it will be as funny as I expect it to be, or maybe even more.

Uncalled for. They're getting better. smile

Nice 'hint' wink

Anyways...


Merry Christmas to all.

May you get all the gifts you wish for (if you deserve them) and may you get more joy out of giving them.

I trust this next year will be very exciting indeed. I imagine the new programs will bring a phenomenal amount of different types of films, rather than the usual action films. Not to mention the amount of community growth after the press release.

Now, having just discovered I love Eggnog, I'm off to drink my fill of it.

PS. This Christmas will be my second FXHome... join--day.... yep.

Go Jesus!
