Queeg said:I found a video very similar to this project, It had the wing commander 4 dvd version turned into a movie. Although I am much looking forward to seeing your version, this version I found had a couple important flaws. Absolutely no gameplay in the film, this of course left gaps in the story and someone who hasn't played the game from start to finish is likely to be confused watching it. Also the film was 3 hours long! It had all the mission briefings but no space flight at all. One scene it has the mission briefing of a convoy in trouble and then it cuts to a scene with Melek.
After seeing your sample of gameflight, I can see its going to action packed with no story left out . After finding the other version, I chose wing commander III in hope that it hadn't been done before. I didn't see this thread until after I finished the project (before that I had just been reading wing commander general chat). I read through it before posting and figured this was the right place to post.
Anyway I wont ramble any longer, I can't wait till your WC4 movie is finished
That would have been my release or at least sounds like it
Like Rapiter Pilot already said: "But, all of that depends on the audience. Someone who has played WC4 to death probably wouldn't want to watch a bunch of in-game stuff thinking 'been there done that'. But for someone who hasn't played, the in game stuff is cool, and exciting, as long as it's done properly."
I did the movie for myself. I took as many shots as possible and still cut out over an hour of other choices that you could make.
Ofcourse people that wont have played the game will be confused. But I dont give a crap, I did it for me. My version is a long talky political thriller.
The spaceflight takes out the realism but adds more story.
Still, would love to see your version AD
