Then I ask only one thing. Help me do some lasers for a short minute or so. If I can get one or two people to do some lasers, I may even release the scene as a little teaser for the community.

PM me if you want to help me with these lasers!

You in need of any grading help and I'm there.

I'd love to see this scene that's being held so secretively. I'm not gonna PM you, rather outright ask if I can see it. Can I see it? biggrin

PM me a link, please!

Just to let you know Ben3308 that signature is still annoying but now twice annoying because now I keep thinking the dancing guys saying "Ben rocks, Ben rocks" over and over...or is he? think

Hehe, Yeah I'll give you a hand as well with the lasers.

Those are some nice stills. It looks like it will be very cool. I would like to help with the lasers, but I am busy, the internet is messed up, and I am not that good sfx wise. But I am looking forward to the scene.

Did it ever occur to you that it may be part of the shot?

Don't shut down the man's opinion Josh.

The Siege: Actually, we have people who just like to wear paintball masks for different reasons. Religion, personal comfort, etc.

NickD, not to offend or anything, but you're really not doing yourself any favors by overhyping a movie people already don't have much interest in.

Generally, it's not good practice to codename a movie (especially when most don't know what it means! biggrin) and I think it's even worse when you say "wanna see a scene?" and swiftly follow that up with "too bad!".

It's okay to feel hyped about your movie- I should know- but you have to show us something if you're going to keep on making new threads for it and such. At least with Splinter Cell I put up a trailer, a scene, and a bunch of BTS photos, lol.

Yeah Ben, you definitely are right. I should have probably named the thread to give the idea that it's more an open shout-out in case anyone wants to do some effects.

If I can get the last few shots in the sequence back from the people who have volunteered, I will definitely upload the first cut of the scene, maybe followed by more test cuts.

Yeah, I have no clue what MB3 is either. I agree with Ben, you shouldn't over hype movies, especially when not that many people know about it. But mainly, don't overhype movies. You'll get crap for the rest of your life if you don't finish it. wink

Also, SILVERDRAGON7 YOU NEED TO CHANGE YOUR SIG. Jesus Christ, that thing is annoying. Get Movie's old sig. At least that one made me chuckle.

Now that's just plain stupid, it's not really that fun to make/download a sig just to piss people off while they try and read. I agree with Kyal I prefered Movies old sig, didn't make me chuckle but at least it doesn't flash.

So if I find one that doesn't flash, you're okay with it?

Perfect.
