Hadrian just sent me an intro he is working on for Privateer. He has up through where the pirates launch their missiles. Although the framerate is halved for now and he says the visual look is not yet complete, what he has so far is stunning.
Loved it! Well everything but the pirates voice acting/script. It sounded way over acted. And could use some post prodution work (sounds like it was recorded on a $5 mic). Other than that DAMN its sweet.
Ok, I've taken the liberty of converting the Quicktime file to an XviD/DivX stream (21.8MB) -- available here in an effort to spread the goodness of this animation to those who don't/won't use Quicktime. If Hadrian would prefer this not be released in its current form and/or prefer to release a native or updated XviD/DivX version, then please let me know and I will remove it from my hosting service.
Again, this is a kickass animation and was quite unexpected -- it really made my day -- well worth watching! I look forward to the final version with much anticipation.
That is.. awesome. Yeah, the pirates are a bit overacted, but if memory serves those are the actual parts fromt he Privateer speech files. The graphics alone are great, even if shaky-cam and shock-cam are slightly overused or mis-timed. If you keep up work on this level, expect a fan-following.
