I've been promising a long time I'd get some stills from the film in the thread. I actually thought it might be better to get some footage up for you instead of plain old stills.

In the video you will see a small variety of behind the scenes stills, shots from the final cut and some vfx test renders. The vfx are still on target with our deadline just before Christmas with an expected early 2010 release.

I'm not great at doing audio but I thought it worth a shot.




Cheers,
Ash.

Very nice stuff! I am still looking forward to seeing this completed. Those test shots of video at the end are awesome; can't wait to see the real, high-quality ones.

I mean, obviously I can wait, and I will wait, but I'd like to not wait.

That's really awesome.

The visual of when the camera is coming up the very base of the cliff are very realistic.

Nice Job smile

It's an embedded YouTube video. Not something you'll be able to pull up on your phone or anything.

Hey, just checking in on the status of the project. The video said you were shooting for completion around Christmas and release sometime early this year. Any news?

Hey Atom,

Our visual effects lead S├ębastien is currently painting all the ext shots with the base this week and next week he'll be animating the debris. Other artists are finishing off the corridor scene which are in the final stages, so we should see them around the same time.

There are a selection of other int shots with wall extensions that have been completed and we are just waiting for them to be uploaded to the server.

There are also some extra finishing touches I'd like to see put in but due to time we might have to drop them as they're more of a cosmetic touch.

The short is definitely on schedule for release 1Q this year.

Enough footage for a teaser, perhaps? I know a good editor if manpower is the stumbling block wink

Also, any idea on TRT? (unless I've missed that, then sorry!)

We'll be releasing a teaser once we have our locked edit with the vfx shots. We're nearing that stage shortly so expect it soon. I don't understand what you mean by 'TRT'? smile
