      Stargate New Flight

      So another year (and a quarter) has gone by. Many of you probably think New Flight is dead, but with the current lack of all things Stargate, it's more likely than ever that this project will get the green light in the coming months.

      First, I need to relocate myself again and establish my business. Once that's done and I have a steady income, I can channel funding into the filmmaking side of things. New Flight won't be first (as it can't be monetised) but it is high on the list. Hold onto your ideas and do let me know if you encounter anyone that might be cool with helping on this project when it starts wink.png

      In the meantime, you might have noticed the recent kickups about piracy and privacy. I have a poll running in my journal that's designed to collect data for the purpose of refuting the basic thinking that brings things like SOPA and ACTA into existence. Hop over and answer honestly - and mention it to your friends!

      I'm not sure how many of you ever "met" Katanafleetd, but if he were still among us, yesterday would be his sixth anniversary on the site. We should always remember our fallen comrades.

      Back when he died, we who were making New Flight asked his family how they'd feel if we dedicated the series to his memory and possibly use his audition piece for a one-line-wonder character as the actual line (it was gooood) - his sister said that would be wonderful.
      Unfortunately, the project stalled, as Fritz and I were the only ones really capable of doing anything with 3D. Fritz is far too busy these days and my copy of Max is on a laptop that's none too reliable or comfy to use. I'd really like to try and get the series moving again - nothing's happened in canon Stargate that would contradict it too much and it's still a while into the future, so we can still do this. I'm working again on the script, polishing it a bit and continuing the writing.
      What I really need from all of you is any help you can give. If you have any ability in 3D animation, especially character animation, you'll be the lifeblood of the project. I'll even switch to using Blender if there are difficulties getting people with legal 3DS Max copies.
      If you've no ability in that area, you can still help immensely - firstly, by trying to find others who do. We still need a lot of voice actors; I think the majority are American males, so we probably won't have any problem finding them lol.png
      If you're any good at turning a novel into a screenplay, you're welcome to take a chunk of the novel and make it so that I can integrate it into what's been written - a few things have to change because of the limitations of video as opposed to the written word, but it's easy enough to pick up how those things are happening.
      There are other jobs going, too - for example, texturing. Someone's gonna have to spend days in Photoshop just to make all the planetary surfaces we're gonna need. Then you consider all the clothing that has to look realistic, the new ships that have generic tileable textures and could do with a lot of work, the environments, the console displays... all in all, there are probably over a thousand man hours of Photoshop work to do, so if you're any good... HI!

      So, some of you have seen the Facebook statuses, or the comments about render progress... this took approximately 62 hours and 22 minutes to render and it is, in my opinion, epic.
      The last time I rendered this trailer was the 14th of May 2008, so a lot has changed. None of the models are in the "final" stages (most of them are nowhere near) but we're gradually moving along. I decided to mix things up slightly and overlay some text on this one. Sadly, the bit at the end hasn't done what it was supposed to do, so I apologise for that... it's all flashy. And the web address seemed much clearer in the preview.
      Anyway, I present to you the current version of the Stargate New Flight trailer on YouTube. The higher-resolution Windows Media version can be found at this address.

      Check out the previous news entry and the website for more data and possibly a little bit of Data!
