Well that blows. Kind of a smack in the face to all the people who have been waiting to see this. He should at least release some short clips.

What it boils down to was this. I have been working on this project for 4+ years now and I spent a lot of time and cash into its making and I was finding myself settling on little nuances that I would have otherwise ignored if it weren't for the amount of time spent on the project. Upon showcasing the working film to several folks outside this community, I found that the majority of criticism was the blocky animation and low-poly look to the characters. A lot of the compliments were cinematography and story and was suggested numerous times that the film would be an excellent low-budget scifi live-action film.
Around the beginning of November, I really began to look at what it would take to get the project started as a live-action low-budget epic. After some number crunching, I realized that I could realistically afford to shoot this film live-action with a mix of CG. What I realized though was I needed to focus on some more live-action projects with heavy visualfx to prepare me for the long run. I could not do this and make a moviestorm film at the same time.
In addition to all of this, lets not forget that I've always been a live-action director. I discovered the wonderful world of machinima when I hurt my back and needed a creative outlet. I'm sure there is many individuals here who have similar stories of how and why we started using machinima. I think there is a lot of folks here who if had the time and resources, would love to shoot live-action and take what knowledge they have learned in Machinima and apply it.
So, instead of investing in hundreds of dollars of bvh files, or a motion capture system, I began investing in things that will help me with everything else I do outside of The Grey People. I invested in a brand new two-camera system for live-action stereo3D, a rig, new software, new live-action stock-footage, sound effects, etc. The lifetime use of this equipment will last much longer than the turn-over in animation software and content.
In the big scheme of things, "The Grey People" has attracted many fans for a reasons. Some fans were disappointed when I went from The Movies to Moviestorm, but when they seen the footage suddenly were on-board. Fans have hated me like George Lucas for going from Moviestorm to Live-Action, and I can tell you when I release footage of it, fans would be equally if not even more blown away.
Thanks to all who have followed the production up to this point. I hope you can quietly anticipate the release of the live-action web-series. If not, I thank you for your support up to this point.

Hey put a bit in the credits about your MS supporters won't you? Might be the only way I ever get a mention at Cannes
