It's time for another update! The last few weeks, Donkey has been working very hard. He has already composited 20% of the shots from part3 so it's definitely coming along. Right now, he's been working on a nightvision sequence. You can see a screencap of this process on your right.

I'm also releasing some exclusive footage. Well acutally, it's a storyboarded sequence from a car chase drawn by Donkey (already a long time ago). We have done alot of storyboards like this one both on paper and digitally. I must say the storyboard comes pretty close to what we ended up with. If you think they look funny well let me assure you we had a blast with it too and there will be some others available for your viewing pleasure after the release of SoF.


Enjoy! :)

PS People been asking me why they can't click on the screencap picture to view it in full size. Well, it's a standard template in blogger so I can't change that but if you right-click on the picture and choose 'Save Picture as...' you can save it to your disk and see it in full resolution.

Dit klinkt echt geweldig. Lijkt net op een scene uit de Band Of Brothers.

Mike, unfortunately there will be no HD version available on release. Due to the 'size' of this movie and our limited storage capabilities we deceided not todo it. And we already have a combined 5/6 TB of disk storage for this project. Imagine what space we would've needed if this was to be created in HD. But no worries, the quality if the image will be great nevertheless.

Wow, I watched the trailer in late 2006 and forgot about this... then today I was checking BF2 videos when 'sand of fire' just suddenly came to my mind, so I searched and found that website ! Digital Warriors, now I remember !

I really like that recent storyboard!
I watched the LOTR making of DVDs and they're doing the same method of storyboard with sound. Awesome! I just can't wait to see this masterpiece.
As a Maya beginner , I can't wait to see all the tweaking and CG effect that will spice up the footages!

Great work and keep us up-to-date!
