T.F.S Part 8 Update

Hi guys,

Sorry about the long delay in EVERYTHING, but I took a huge break from making Machinima over the summer period plus the personal crap I had to deal with so I'll tell you where I'm at.

I still have only half the script complete, but there is a reason for this. I have filmed the first talk scene, BUT, many of my voice actors, who live abroad, haven't yet contacted me with their lines, plus I have no idea if they are on holiday etc so can't actually start making it properly until I know everyone is still on board. This is the only problem with using REAL people for doing other lines as if they don't come in, I'm a bit screwed.

So at the moment I am chasing some important lines down. If it turns out they arn't willing to do it anymore, I will need to try and replace the characters some how. BIG PROBLEM......

So I'll continue with the script and editing the first talk, and hope that things work out. If they don't I will need to re-write and scrap the whole of Part 8 as we speak and think up another way on continueing the story.

But don't be alarmed. I will definatly think of something, I just don't want to as I want to do what I originally planned....

Don't hate me.

Your favourtie (yet painfully fustrating) Machinima Director (hahahaha)

Thanks OK Darknal, I understand hhow you must be feeling, my project has a few voices that need doing but the actors are either too busy or too lazy. Still I know you'll figure something out. Until then, I can only wish you luck.

wut i wud do, since u left the last scene off in the middle of epic chaos, have the characters that can't voice anymore, killed off. and then throughout the story introduce similar charcters to the plot. that way you don't stray too far off from the originality of the plot and script

Darknal said...

No I can't do that as the scene actually ended as the last wraith was the main concern. The battle had actually finished and it's not the characters you know who have not got in touch, it's a new character, but they are VERY important.

He's right, Darknal. Your voice actors who can't attend your episode should be killed off in calamity. Though they are important you could try getting new main characters. Another good one is to make cameo appearences in an analapses episode.

I'm guessing that this new charcter you were taking about, Darknal, has something to do with the Chief.

Still, good luck.

Take your time, Darknal. I'm an independent game programmer and I find myself apologizing every other day for production delays. I feel your pain. Keep on truckin', mate.

Cheers

Darknal i understand were your coming from i just went over number 7 again and that wouldn't work just killing actors of like that and with this new person that is coming in i hope he or she works out because i don't think that person wants to let you down and put the hole thing on hold just keep doing what your doing and hopefully things will go as planed so ya i bet your stressed and upset but things will work out. p.s. your very very good at what you do.

wow. You should try getting new actors for those people who arent getting back to you, they do it in movies all the time. BTW you have a gift! You are inspiring me to make movie of my own halo movie. But i dont know if i can handle making a machinima like you good luck! PS: I watched all of the episodes twice!
