Earth-Link Zero

Post by Darkwing on 2010-05-19, 20:13

Figured I should make a general thread for the ELZ updates. Also, just made an ELZ facebook page, so yeah, you can join the page here:

So draft 2 of the script for ELZ is at 50 pages now! And so far, it's considerably better than Draft 1 (which made it to about 65 pages)

actually, the trail is right, see the back of the missile isn't the standard shape of a missile, giving the illusion that it's off. But when it's made in the 3d space, it's pretty much accurate

Regardless of how the trail looks, it is most definitely desktop worthy.

the bottom of the missile flares out, making it not flat at the back, so this is what's causing the illusion of the angle, i'm gonna take some snapshots of the other angles from the 3d space and you'll see how it is actually correct Smile

yes, free mass advertising is a good thing. And facebook isn't that bad, I've been using it now for 3-ish months and this facebook hate is completely unjustified in my opinion

Yeah, I know.

The only reason I'm not on Facebook is because I made a pact with some of my friends to never get onto it. (Non-conformists unite!)

Well, that, and because I don't like the idea of someone being able to google me.

Re: Earth-Link Zero

Post by Darkwing on 2010-06-19, 01:42

So after much consideration and talking and thinking and pondering and stressing and planning over the course of the last week, Chris K and myself have come to the inevitable conclusion that ELZ is beyond our reach with the given time constraints that we have and other minor things. So like 99.9% of all non-official, amateur films, it's dead. Well, shelved to be more exact. ELZ is going into cold storage and maybe someday, with enough time, luck and backbreaking work, it will be able to be pulled out of cryo and made somehow. So thank you to all who supported the project and we are quite sorry we wasted your time. The first episode of Chronicles will still be made because it's got a fair bit of work done and is only 10 min long, so at least we have that to look forward to.

Now even though ELZ has been shelved, Chris K and myself are quickly developing a new concept that we discussed this evening actually. It is much much smaller in scale compared to ELZ and is something that should be do-able in the next two months. So look for new info involving our new project currently named "Trinity".

Wait, so can you give it to me so that I can pet it and put it underneath my bed at night?

And then, in the morning, I can do an uber sexy dance and then rip off my pants in a way that would make even Brian Johnson blush. (Though, in reality, he would probably raise an eyebrow)

We could eat strawberries together, and even make hand babies!

It would be so much fun!

well you of all people should understand, considering you read the script and all. It's very...big. And to do it in two months working around people's work schedules and a whole variety of uncontrollable factors, there just isn't time to make it, which is really, really disappointing because I really wanted to make it, especially doing it live action would have been cool

NOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooOOOOOOO

i was really looking forward to that Sad

hmm, but maybe you could make the Chronicles episode that you will make a little longer, with more of a storyline and a good ending instead of the cliffhanger that i suspect it would have ended with.

the ELC ep will remain the same and we will be focusing our efforts on producing Trinity which is less awesome and epic than ELZ

So you're doing something smaller to be done in two months, when ELZ took at least four months to get to the stage it was? Don't get me wrong, I'll take your word for it, for it means little to me.

To be completely honest, I think you are right. Nevertheless, it doesnt hurt to try.

the project in general is smaller, so it won't take 2 months to write the script, cause it's a short film. And the type of short film it is is much easier to pull off. For one, it happens during modern day so there's no starships or sets or anything that have to be developed. This has like 4 people in it as opposed to the what, 30 or more in ELZ?

It is possible to become friends with colleagues, since after all, colleagues are acquaintances. LOL

Our social bond is what one could definitely call "a friendship".

I believe that you are simply afraid of becoming close to others.

Everything you do in your life, the way you write, your skills, hobbies, and opinions; they slowly unwrap and reveal an introverted man that seems to be scared, confused, and dissatisfied with himself.

I think you need a hug.

You already know what's wrong, you're like me, you're quite good at self-diagnosis.

All you need is guidance. But I can't suggest you get that from me.

After all, you already know what I would say anyways.

If you do pursue direction, make sure that whomever you confide in for a compass is not lost himself.

When you think you know where to go, just jump into it and do the best you can.

a compass, there's a good idea, might be good to get an outside opinion from a mechanical object. My cat is running out of advice for me. Ok, so my cat has never actually given me advice, but I continue to confide in her anyways......

why are you all looking at me like that?
