It takes me a while to sit down and put all the elements together due to real life insanity but, at long last, I managed to find the time to put together a new vid.

When I sat down to start my next movie, I had many ideas but the one I went with was (as my peers suggested to me) have fun. While many people loved the epic story-like feel of the Everlasting Vendetta and VOTF vids, I found an equal number of people who sent me positive comments on the fast-paced action of the Merchant Marine movie. Up until now, I must admit that the Merchant Marine video was my favorite.

So with these thoughts in mind, I made another one. Cool

For everyone that likes a good intro, lots of action, clean panning shots and a bit of humor, this one is for you. I could have easily made a 25 minute vid of one fleet action and one gank after another (OMG, the insane amount of footage I have…), but I try to keep things interesting as much as I can. That’s why you will see a few things in this vid that might surprise you. It’s not an FX-laden monster like what LL can do, but it does have some innovative content. Hey, I gotta compete some way with these guys!

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has ever given a shout-out to BDCI or FRICK in local. I also want to say thank you to those of you who have taken the time to write me a short mail or join our public channel to compliment me on these vids. You have no idea how much of a boost that is to continue trying to improve with each release.

I hope you enjoy this effort and I promise that I’ll get back into ‘epic-mode’ in the near future. In the meantime, DL the vid and do one very important thing: turn the speakers up loud!! See the end credits for details like soundtrack, etc...

Excellent vid as always Sel Very Happy. I think you've made a real stride forward with production values on this one. It's just so much.... slicker than the previous vids.

I guess we better get on with killing some stuff for the next vid Wink.

I like this vid (despite cutting the yulai fight i wanted), although i am more of an epic fan its fun and fast paced and your camera work has really improved Very Happy

Its nice to have a bit of the relaxed vid and the story of drax joining us is revealed ;)

This isn't your mom and pop playground children, its empire space, and that is the domain of the Mercenary Coaltion Wink

Awesome vid again Sel! The obvious things I liked included the second & third soundtracks, and the whole narrator voice over, and that fly by of the Amarrian ship while in warp. Very classy and stole my attention right away.

Funny part is, when I hear the person speaking, and the music is building up the background, I sit back and think to myself... "Wow, someones about to get seriously ass ****d 20 seconds from now!" I liked it, honestly that whole voice over narrator thing got me hooked and build up the suspense. Awesome job.

Timing of the music to the vid was excellent, and I always love low fade in/out shots of the video. Very well done. Ok said enough, you rock, later!

SWEET VIDEO!!! Definitely one of the better you've ever done. I think I like the fast action ones better than the epic-storyline ones. Oh, and it's fun to watch you die. You really gotta do it more often. Wink

I had to join BDCI in my quest to retrive the "Holy Warp Core Stab of Antioch", the loss of this great artifact is the only reason for the demise of MF corp.

Nice work boss :)

Seleene always teases us with parts of the project, but always manages to surprise me when the end-product is released. :)

Oh man! I need to remember to hit the FRAPS record button more often. I didn't have any footage on there this time around. Sorry about that Sel! Embarassed

I'm gonna have to be careful what I say on TS now if you're gonna record without us knowing about it... Funny stuff tho! That was me talking about the 3 letters of approval there. Which is almost true. You don't want Jezz to be talking in local without some sort of ratification from the group. I feel a Seleene soundboard coming on... Laughing

Awesome movie Sel! Now find us something else to shoot at, I'm getting twitchy. Wink

OMFG! Every time I see a new video on BDCI's website, all other tasks take a back burner till I finish watching it Very Happy I loved the narration! Hehe, the shot of the barges mining got my carebear juices flowing at the end too ugh, just makes you wonder who is actually piloting them Twisted Evil

Awesome video. Just awesome.

It may not have had a story (well, it was the story of BDCI in Exodus, but not of a specific war), but the sprinkling of light-heartedness and humor really made this one.

And do watch out for that second volley. Cool

As Seleene always hazzle (Wink) me and LLeBRing with the videos while in production I have already expressed what I think of this one. But I will do it again for everyone to see. Very Happy

I honestly think this video is your best one yet. Maybe not in content as it was more "general" than you usual videos that concentrate on one contract but in editing and quality it beats everything you have done previous to this.

The soundtrack, narration and TS-capture is just perfect. You have managed to perfectly mix the different type of clips and also made them fit perfectly to the music. The video feels very clean and smooth.

I also really like that you finally have switched from that stiff helvetica-style font into a font that is more suitable to the video and therefore adds to the overall atmosphere of the video (guess I have to thank LL for that Laughing).

Nice vid!

Excellent Video again Seleene,

It seems to have that edge over the previous ones, just seems to fit that little better.

It also shows the some ppl from your own side dying which is also a novelty in most movies.

Now if only us mortals could produce something like this.

Keep up the good work, looking forward to the next vid.
