Sweet tease. I can't wait to see how this all comes together. I'm a film/art guy but have no experience with CGI other than watching it on a screen.

Looking really sweet. I'm in the same boat as BCP in that I've never done anything with CGI, but that's looking excellent.

Good to know!

The direction in which this shall head is going to be largely dictated by which techniques end up being the most successful. But when this is done, I'll be quite open about what how it was done. Not necessarily cheap, but is intuitive, so far. :)

CG film? You should perhaps get in touch with Locusta and see if he'll lend you his CG models, THAT would be the greatest CG alien film of all time.

It seems they use something called Softimage, but I'll ask if they've got something which can be adapted into what I use. One can dream...

Update!

Project is solidifying at a steady rate, so to speak. Main sticking point is finding the right models, human figures and, most importantly of all, environments for the software. These are more important considerations than would be preferable, since the availability of elements dictate a story's direction as much as a real sets would for a more conventional film (unfortunately, several vital things can be a bit more expensive than I'd like, which means price is a consideration, too). The good news is that the artistic-looking visual filter stuff is proving no trouble.

The animation side of things, unfortunately, is requiring more expertise than I have, but even if it ends up turning into a full-on motion comic, that won't detract from the direction I have in mind.

Green-screening live-action stuff provided stranger results than expected (going to try a different lighting technique to get around the encountered problem), but filtering and colour-correction should largely get around that.

Good news is that the methods I'm using won't require an actual cast of actors until much later on and, by that time, what I'll need them for can all be accomplished in a very short space of time. Cryptic, I know! But when this is finished, my reasoning shall become clearer!

Not pretending this'll be massively epic with heart-stirring drama or anything, but I am aiming for what shall hopefully be something with a relatively professional look for an exceedingly low budget.

Shall be posting some more experimental stuff when I can do.

Did send a message, but no reply yet.

Visual updates...

Not the human figure I'll be using. Just a preliminary CGI model before obtaining more realistic and detailed ones.

Also not actual visuals from the project. As before, these were tests.

PHASE 1:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

PHASE 2:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Still early days, but even these basic tests are looking promising.

CGI to-do list:
Testing more detailed human figures.
Vehicles.
Giger components.
Environments.

Other techniques:
Additional visual filter/lighting experimentation.
Physical ice effects...
Green screen element combinations with suitable colour-correction.

Then comes the writing. :)

After that, the visuals, then audio, then tons of video editing.
