What's going on with this project? I just spent the last couple hours searching for the title of it both on here and facebook and it seems to have just vanished. None of the links work. Anyone know what's going on?

D.L. has told me that he is going to try to film this in live action now, and so this will not come out anytime soon.

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.

I would suggest you pass the time reading "Waiting for Godot".

I apologize for disappointing so many of the fans of the project. The decision to move to a live-action production was not taken lightly and was something I was contemplating for many months even as I worked diligently on the animation.

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.

- D.L. Watson

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 wink.gif

I hope people also keep in mind that part of Moviestorm's market strategy is for MS to be used as a previz/demo tool for live-action concepts, and in the end that is exactly what happened with this project, even if it wasn't intended at the beginning.
Best of luck to you D.L. smile.gif
