Hello all o/

I am constantly coming back and reading this thread so don't think I'm ignoring anyone, I just don't tend to post too much in general Smile I can't say anything that I haven't said already, so I'll re-iterate my deepest thank you's for all the kind words!

I've just had an fantastic interview with Urban and Winterblink for the Warp Drive Active podcast on Sunday, talking about Clear Skies and addressing a fair few of the questions and comments raised here, so that should be worth a listen if you are interested Cool I noted a bit of a discussion about the film style and actors and stuff a couple of pages back, but I wasn't expecting everyone to like it - each to their own and all that. I'm staggered by the percentage of people who do like it to be honest, I'm flattered and honoured and running out of nice words to use in general!

To be clear, we all have absolutely no training or experience whatsoever in acting or filmmaking before Clear Skies, so I think we did pretty darn good Smile The driver behind CS was me and my friends having some fun and me having a creative outlet. It wasn't to try and wtfpwn the Eve video circles or show off or anything like that. Any subsequent stuff I do will be under the same driver Cool

If this has raised the bar for eve film making then that's an honour I'm proud to carry - I want other people to pick this up and run with it (with perhaps less rotating cameras and British accents or whatever Wink ) My website will have all the info and notes I have on the Half Life 2 SDK to save others from having to go through the 6 months of pain I did sussing it all out, which should speed up development time. I'm just one person, I imagine there are film-making teams out there now plotting and scheming their blockbusters who will complete them in less than half the time, and I for one welcome it and look forward to their films. Machinima 2.0 here we come!

Oh and before I go, a big thank you to the people who have donated ISK to me, that's such a warm and generous gesture, I'm truly touched especially as a sizeable one came from a group of people whom I'm ostensibly enemies with! I salute and thank you all, this is a very good day Very Happy

I know this is a long way off from the date you posted this message. however this must be said. even if people start making their own flims off what you started JR. They still are only copying what you set in stone. very few things can bring out the masses like this. No one can touch Clear Skies. If you and your friends ever get the ball rolling to make a series out of this (like we all hope Laughing). youll have the fan base to take it as far as you want to go. i cant get enough of watching the movie and you have a fan that will promote this project of yours. (tips hat) god speed and i hope too see your next one in the near future.

i'm always looking for excuses to watch it again, hehehe. i'd invite friend's over to check it out, have spammed the link thru my myspace several times. and more than once just kicked back with my 5 month boy on my lap in front of the pc with CS playing on both monitors, hehehe.

Awesome work JR and friends :)

JR , just absolutely brilliant !
I converted to DVD format and watched it with my family , they all loved it ! My son especially so as he is into Garys Mod big time, and has played Eve as a trial account,and he is into animation/editing, ive played both HL and Eve (Eve is my main game now, rest are dust and weeds)
Humour and story is great, leave the characters as they are , cant wait for the follow ups if you have time Very Happy

Seems you have a latent talent , maybe a career change is on the horizon ?

I cant say enough about this movie, I feel like i should have payed 8 us dollars to watch it in a theater, it was well written, gr8 characters, awesome footage and camera work, the editing second to none, all done without a huge production company! You have set the standard!, and yes here is just another topic reply that gushes thanks and praise for a job over and above anybodies expectation

I think I downloaded this the third day it was out after a few corpies pointed me in its direction. Since then, there are very few days where it doesn't seem to come up in the pile of things I do daily. It's at the point where the girlfriend has walked by and said "have you watched it yet... have you wantched it yet.." along with Charlie in the early portion of the video.

When's the next one due out?

I'm just here to tell you, like everybody else, how awesome this was. I even paid for the movie ticket with ISK because I thought it was worth it. Keep it up, you have talent.

Simply put, Clear Skies is SUPERB! I was totally hooked 30 seconds into it and downloaded it immediately! All the elements of presenting a great story are in place backed up by a kickass soundtrack. I hope you will turn this into a series!! Congrats on a job VERY WELL DONE!!

Ian Chisholm this is by far the most funny and entertaining piece of movie made by a non "professional" that ive have ever seen, im really hoping for some more episodes since the plot, the very different characters behaviour and way of looking at the different situations is a refreshing change.
and one of the first things that caught my attention was that you had really put an effort into making the movie evolve around the eve univers, with the hammer on the nail, why by insurance when you fly in a metal scarp boat =)

this film is great fun to watch and for anyone playing eve the details on the fitting and the "geek" teems is a brilliant way of making conversations between the characters an actual conversation between players in the eve univers, when we ***** over the wrong settings or the unfairness of a battle we jumped right into...

you have erned more respect in the univers of eve in making this movie, than ccp has in making eve =)

Hoping for a sequal

regards

I am not going to read all 47 pages of kudos and I haven't seen the whole video yet; just the intro between the mechanic and the pilot, and I already know its great. CCP needs to hire this creative genius on the spot. A series like this could have internet-wise following in the fashion of viral advertisement.

P.S. Clear Skies has NO tank to speak of, lmao!

He's using some sort of exotic ammo. Well, fire back with some of our non-exotic missiles. Best lines of the vid.

The writing and shot angle is indicitive of a fan and player of the game.

You've set the new standard for Eve vids. I've seen stuff like this before with Red v. Blue, but this was beyond anything others have done here.

Please continue! Cool

wow, just wow, i havent really seen any eve videos, i saw one, but that was propaganda for an alliance, and the only cool part was when the mega started firing its blasters


this was an awesome video, if i was a millionaire, i would buy you a state of the art computer, w/ tons of CGI programs and crap like that to make your life a bit easier

unfortunatly, im not a millionaire, lol, but i swear to god i would send you the money, or buy you the computer so you could make more of these

you honestly need to contact CCP, and point them to this thread to show all of your support

then produce an episode like once a week, like 20 minutes or so per episode, unless its a seasons end or something, then they should be like an hour long, or as long as this vid or whatever



500/10 man, great work


EDIT: hell, i would lend my voice to help you, as long as i get to be a bad guy . . . in a navy issue megathronYARRRR!!Cool
