Mcguiver- Another thing that I think reduces some “participation” so far is that basically the way 8.5 has dragged on and the very common complaint threads because of that——-many folks probably have stopped dropping in the forums very regularily. as it really has not been all that positive a experience of late.
That said- hopefully with some more time many more folks will chime in as this movie project is one of the most positive things to hit Carrara and these forums for 18 months. Smiles.
Rashad—thanks for putting out a little bit of structure for the upcoming movie project and I think this can be a living document added and corrected as we move forward. It looks like right now we have a lot of consultants . Speaking of which - I notice Mcguiver—not on the list and I know his time is limited but said he could do what he could. His talents would greatly help indeed in any capacity.
I kind of suspect he will be centrally involved since the final storyline will most likely be his. Indeed its too soon to call. I will add McQuiver’s name to the list, thanks for that reminder. McQuiver has a great deal of skill that can be used in many areas of the production. He is essential, regardless of final storyline determination.
Also Looking at the Artistic Direction group. (2 ) I do not have but Antara has some drawing skills ...but if we are to work on storyboards of which I would love to work on it would help if we could garnish another very good artist who can draw well. Storyboards need to be more than telling just where stuff is..ideally they can transmit things like emotion, tension, danger, atmosphere etc. Without a couple of good artists these things are hard to convey and if they are not conveyed the modelers, animators , directors have to figure things out or guess which is not a good thing. And there are going to be lots of them for a movie project.
So any one with good drawing skills——and wants to join in the Artistic Direction Group on storyboard creation ————-let us know.
I trust you to enlist any human resources you deem necessary. I personally suspect that more willing individuals will soon come forward and volunteer their skills. We will only be in the preliminary drawing stages for a short period of time, after that we will have moved on to the Carrara interpretation of the boards, and I envision many critical decisions being made at that time. You and Antara have quite the task ahead so the more the merrier. Fortunately, skill is abundant around here!
CyborgTY should be around soon to introduce himself to the group on the Technical direction side of things. He was one of the first to contact me about involvement in the project and he has a decent amount of experience with it. I feel really good about the team from a skill and general professionalism of attitude standpoint. I’m very encouraged.
Over the next day or so Mike and I will determine the final look and feel for the test project. Then once that ship is sailing we will get to the logistics of the full CCMP.
Admittedly, much of the technical discussions going on in the threads is beyond me already. Dont know much about the Carrara VM, I use Truespace typically. So I really need to get studying. Gotta be able to keep up. I feel like an out of touch congressman making policy over stem cells….not good.
