I want to make a statement because both Donkey and I are very dissapointed at this moment. Apperantly, some of you are trying to spread false rumors. I don't know where this is coming from and have no idea who is doing it but it's not what we expected from our fans. So to make things clear once and for all, Sands of Fire is still in production, the movie will come out next year and it surely is NOT canceled. So please, stop spamming our blog with comments that the movie is canceled or that you have been waiting all this time for nothing. We are pretty much alive and kicking.

I know it's easy to post anonymously but please, don't abuse it. We have made this blog accessible to everyone because we stand for net neutrality. We don't want to enforce rules that users have to register before posting. And we want to keep it that way. But of course, if some of you keep on posting complete nonsense and fake stories we will be forced to delete those posts and ultimately, we will be switching over to a more secure system. So, don't ruin it for the fans that still care about this movie. I guess some people just don't have enough patience to sit this through. I can only say I feel sorry for those people because they really have no clue what they are waiting for.

So that being said, it's time for another update. Donkey is almost done with the sound editing. Yes, that's right. In contradiction to all the false rumors, we have in fact made a serious progression. He still estimates a few weeks of work to finish up the rough sound mix but after that we're all done with the sound. And then it's a big leap forward to the final production fase. We will start working on the voices and dialogues, definitely to be the most difficult part of the movie and we still have to decide how to take it on, with or without voiceactors. But we are (slowly) getting there. Oh and maybe you will find the release date on this envelope ;). Check it out!

I've waited for years to see this machinima finally hit the air. But I am more than delighted to keep waiting for this machinima to be fully finished as the masterpiece it's sure to be.

I look forever forward to seeing it. Keep up the amazing work!

Oh, I misread... my bad :)

Anyhow, strange people who spread this kind of rumours, makes you think about what they might possibly gain doing so. But then again, same goes for spammers, and there are plenty of those around unfortunately.
Keep it up.

I was wondering though, to keep the concentration of the fans, you should make another compition again, be it "make the new SOF poster" or "make your own machinama" and you judge which is the best etc...

Keep it up, guys!

I was working almost a year on third episode of my own machinima and I know how hard it is sometimes. So, don't rush and make it as brilliant as it is possible. But remember, that artists used to want to make their masterpieces better and better and they're never fully satisfied with they work, what in fact makes it sometimes take lasts forever :)

This movie is kind of like Duke Nukem Forever

VishnuSixDix said...

Except no-one has ever seen the Duke and their developers sit on a pile of cash the size of your idiocy.

But the process of this movie has been seen (parts) and the developers do this in their free time... oh and there are only 2 of them.
