T.F.S Update 1st April '11


Firstly, please be aware that many questions asked are available via my blog under FAQ. Many are still valid so you should find your answers there.

Q: If you body acted in the forgotten Spartans beforehand do you get to body act in this :P
A: Yes. All current loyal body actors will have priority over new comers. Simple fact, I can trust them in all aspects. Doesn’t mean new people won’t get the chance to prove themselves.

Q: If it's just body acting, do you still need certain armor?
A: Yes. In many cases you will not need anything extreme, mostly ODST in the whole, but those available to offer the Armour needed for a given scene might be used to play a certain character for that scene. Though unlikely, keeps the options open.

Q: wait so you're doing the Reach series before part 10?
A: Sometimes Karl, you need to read my posts ;)

Q: what time does body acting normaly run from???
A: Body acting will usually be a Tuesday or Thursday, most likely Thursdays for the new series. The time is 7:30pm to 10pm as a max. It takes a lot of time to do online shoots and as each shot wont usually last long, there are many shoots.

Q: ‎1-Why did you decide to film Conan's story in reach (like you said in previous update) before part 10?
2-What about your current body and voice actors?
A: 1. Because I need something new to work on. Plus the fact it would be good to film Conan again, always my favourite to script for. 2. They will, as above, get priority over anyone else.

Q: What is the minimum rank your looking for? Because my current rank is Commander.
A: I suppose you need all ODST Armours as a minimum.

Q: Will people like Myself (Ninja Tiger) and Lord Brodie be coming back to act for you like in the first series of TFS? And after the Zenith Map test?
A: Answered ;)

Q: Will you finally expand this position to people outside of the UK? I know of the lag/latency/connection spikes, but this would be an "expansion" or "upgrade" to the series in a sense of who can participate and help.
A: A complex question. The reason to why I use UK servers for body acting only, is because of the lag/ Latency and connection spikes. Whole in one. This is very important to how it looks. Many scenes lag as they are all with good UK connections. I am sorry for those wishing to take part outside of the UK but it’s MY connection. Will not accept anything outside of the UK without latency when using 16 players. Just the way it is. You say Expand or Upgrade, but this has no affect on who plays the characters in the final shot. Whether your from America or the UK, you will still do the same body movements with the characters so will not change how it looks. I use outside of UK for everything else like voice roles etc so it is not a Nationalist move. It is purely for connection reasons. But you are able to apply for things like voice acting roles etc.

Q: I have to say I am disappointed that your not finishing the Series, before moving on to the nest game.
So Darknal, but it's just not professional which is your definition...
But hey not much I can do, besides a petition.
A: Not a question but fair enough. It was either change game or not finish the series at all. My life is so busy now that I get about 2 hours a week on a Thursday evening to think about it, which I have spent playing Reach to try and get to a decent rank for shooting. I will have a shift about in my schedule to try and make the Reach series a reality. Apparently I’m not professional by your definition, which is probably true, but the fact you enjoy the series that much to care I suppose is a compliment. I can’t please everyone, just the way things work.

Q: ‎1.What Rank are u Now???
2. How many episodes are u hoping to have in the reach series??
3. What plot would u want to have for reach??
A: 1.Brigadeir in under a bar.
2. No idea as of yet. Maybe 20, but they will be 5 minute episodes and not at the same scale as the movie.
3. It is going to be what T.F.S has always been, a squad moving from location to location during the invasion of Reach. The fact Bungie decided to do it for their new game doesn’t mean I’ll change the way I originally made mine ;)

Q: hey, can i voice and body act
A: People will get their chance to apply.

Q: is T.F.S. done online or Landline?
A: Both. Online for big scenes and Offline for talk scenes, specific battle scenes and stunts that need a lot of co-ordinating.

Q: Have you still got parts going?
A: Not currently but am working on making more when I free up some time.

Q: u mad?
A: Yes.

Q: when you say TFS Reach do you mean a branch of the story or just continuing TFS USING Reach
A: It is a branch of the story. In fact a prequel to the story before they find the ring. Set at the same time as the Reach Invasion itself.

Q: How are you going to tolerate the bland world known as "Forge World"?
A: I will try using all the maps accordingly for shooting, and will use whatever aspects they offer.

Q: ive been following this series ever since the first episode, and everytime a new episode that comes once an year its a disapointment, so fuck this.
A: Unfortunately, it’s the best I can do. If you decide not to follow anymore then I’m sorry to hear that.

Q: question? why dont you accept my friend request or non of my xbox live messages? ><
A: It’s not just you, I don’t accept any over Xbox live. My Bio says it all. Reason is I have so many that it’s too difficult to reply over Xbox so please use the email provided in all my home pages. All friend spaces are reserved for crew.

Q: Can I ask you a question?
A: Yes you can.

Q: Is this series taking place after the original series and will have Darknal, Conan , Cosmic? Or are you planning to follow different protagonists?
A: It will follow the same Spartans before they trained in their Mark 6 Armour.

Q: Question. Are you only looking for UK actors are you interested in American?

Also, are visor colors and attachments/wrist/utlity favorable over armor (helment/body/knee/shoulder)?
A: Actors like body acting is UK only. Acting as in voice can be any country.
You will need ODST Armour as a minimum.
