Sots mini series -Per Ardua Ad Astra

Post by U.E.D.C. » Fri Jun 03, 2011 1:09 am

Hey Dog soldiers! With SOTS ][ on the way, I thought I'd try to keep the anticipation down by making a Sots machinima mini series.

Since this is going to focus on the human perspective, I thought Solforce's motto would be an appropriate title. I'm uploading the trailer right now, and I have the first real episode done, just need my voice actors to record their lines. Hopefully it'll turn out ok :thumbsup:
I'll post the links as I put up the videos.

By the way, how should I give credit if I where to use the the sots combat music (which I assume isn't a problem, given the Dev's general stance towards this kind of stuff)
Let me know what you think :thumbsup:

Thanks Marshb :thumbsup: Glad you liked it.
EP1 is up. Truth be told filming doesnt take very long, its doing the audio thats the problem. After a lot of headaches with my voice actors, I went ahead and did all the VA myself. Hopefully the I'll get things planned better for the next ep.

episode 2 is now up, just waiting for it to process. Sorry about the long wait, I've been distracted with the school year starting up again. I'll try and get some sort of reasonable pace set up for the next videos. I'm planning on having the finale around ep 5, but dont quote me on that. There could be more ;)

Wow..how did I miss these, they are fantastic. I think the 2nd contact film is just amazing. I would like to offer my voice if you need it, (well spoken englishman)....looking forward to the next instalment. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Hey this is pretty good, nice camera work and I think you guys pulled off the military style voice acting very nicely.
There are some spots where the framerate of the video gets a bit low, not sure what to suggest but other than that very nice.

Heh, makes me wonder if I could pull off a Zuul voice actually after hearing all your own voice work...I should try that sometime

Another great episode. Can't wait for the next one!! :thumbsup:

Wish I could contribute but I can't stand the sound of my own voice and wouldn't dream of inflicting it on anyone else. :oops:

Well Marshb I don't like the sound of my voice, but it seems to be working for everyone else so.... :lol:

As far as the frame rate goes, the most likely cause is my heavy use of drones and DF racks. I'll switch up the weapons for a slightly more fps friendly load out.

I'm glad you guys are enjoying it :thumbsup: I'll keep it up, maybe turn it into a full on series ala Galactica reboot. :D If my laptop can handle it, I'll do some work in SOTS ][ ..... thats a big if though :?

Fraps will definately be purchased shortly*
