Coming Home, a film by Propulsion Studios

This video is intended for 18+ due to brief nudity & adult situations. Coming Home is an achievement in iClone filmmaking. Very good attention to sound, story, lighting and cinematography. Lizard gives high attention to detail on every shot. Thanks to Dulci for directing me to this film from her blog. From the creator: "Sol Lindstrom is alone. He has lost the one thing that he looks forward to coming home to every day... his sweet Alyssa. Where his life once felt as though it had purpose he now finds it a series of agonizing events that sometimes feels all too much to deal with. Memories seem to now haunt his every day life as his mind races with the heartfelt questions of where he went wrong and how she could up and walk away from a love that was to last forever."

Building a Medieval Village - Part 5

3D Chinese Painting Exhibition Stage 5 Horse & Cart Route Cameras Animation Medieval Village
From the creator: "STAGE 5: Animated Chinese Painting Exhibition.Dont worry about the horses waving reins, its just a horse. Im looking at pleasant cam angles and sweeps. Once the streets are full of paintings this will all look so different. And banners and ganging flags etc. So... one thing at a time. The camea and telephoto method now works in animated mode. Thats pleasant. And the compression of perspective is exactly like real life. Perfect now. 3D Chinese Painting Exhibition Flags Stage 5 Animation Medieval Village b.flv"

Building a Medieval Village - Part 4

3D Chinese Painting Exhibition. Flags. Stage 4. Animation Medieval Village (Reloaded)
From the creator: "In this section I have simply mapped some of my Traditional Chinese Paintings onto canvas model flags and banners. This having been done, I then add a little texture, thought thats not really required as there arent any takes up that close... but just in case I change my mind... Then Ive added them to wooden cronky flagpoles and some rather extravagant Kings Court Flagpoles. But the look good and should look wonderful donw the main causeway. Ill do some night shots also. And some torchlit as well. It will be like walt disney when it is done. Thanks for calling in."

Building a Medieval Village - Part 2

3D Chinese Painting Exhibition Stage 2 Animation Medieval Village
From the creator: "A quick whistle through some of the finishing stages. TimeLapsed because in general its all polishing from this point onwards. The set is a set that came with something like iClone v.1.5 or something. But I liked the way the dips in the land allowed the water as it appears here. Tommorow Ill create the banners and things with the paintings on them. That should be fun. Not sure what to do about the people. I only have a few medieval dressed types. Maybe, three? So, I dont want to lose too much time on this, Ill see if theres a quick fix to be had using Clone Cloth for some scruffy sacking type clothes. It should be fun anyway".
