Title: Relic Wars - The Great Destroyer
Post by: Master Resolute on September 13, 2018, 10:59:56 AM
We are a little bit ahead of schedule, so I thought I would share our first trailer. So far, looks like the 3rd week of November will begin " The Great Destroyer ".

Forget Season 1 - Quest for Power. It has been scrapped, rewritten and re-edited due to the lack of story. A member of the J.o.E. had a great idea how to combine the two projects and we are going with it.

This is a " Raw " Trailer. No sound Fx and no touch ups. Needed some practice, so why not :) Hope you enjoy!

Wow Ryan!  I'm liking what I've seen.  I can't wait to see the finished product  :)

And I love the new animation style  ;D

Wow!!!  :o
Looks better and better with every little teaser. Combining the two projects sounds really cool too.
Props to the costume designer. ;)

Looking forward to this. One thing (and it is completely my opinion), but I don't care for the music in this trailer. It just doesn't quite seem to fit. Again, this is my opinion, so take it as you will, but I'm just trying to give a bit of feedback. Other than that, I am excited. The idea that space battles might come into play is really cool. Plus the animation of them looks great. Also, I'm super excited to see Master Resolute and Master Medwyn facing off against each other.

<--- thrives on constructive criticism.


Wouldn't mind knowing what everyone thought of some of the music choices from last year as well. We have a soundtrack (kinda) for this one already, but tend to plug and play. Trying to get a certain feel out of the tunes this time around.

I'll have to go back and rewatch it, but I think there were some times where the music didn't fit, and some times when it fit perfectly. Of course, this too is my opinion, and I'd have to rewatch them to see where it was at that I didn't find it appealing.

This time around im the one controlling the music choices. So hopefully, goes out good :)

I've been told im a little outdated....( For instance, I wouldn't of used Celldweller , was a group decision....I would of used Nine Inch Nails or a NiN remix.... limited crowd for that these days )

Ok, so this is the one that got out voted. They didn't want to use the same song from a previous montage. I thought it fit a little better.

I had a curious thought. I'm thinking of doing a " Blank Slate " version that would allow some of the communities Fan Fiction Authors to take a stab at it. Thoughts?

Recently jumped over to the Fan Fiction section and read some stuff. Simply amazing.

On a side note, I just started working on a personal project....Remember those Adventure Books that let you make your own choices (multiple choice at least.)

I want to try to do a series in the same format.

Post by: scifidude79 on September 14, 2018, 05:58:44 PM
I thought the music that got chosen really amped up the energy. But, both are good.

I've got to say, this is a really cool looking project. I'm looking forward to seeing the final film. I think fan films are some of the best films that can be made, because people have a real passion for what they're doing. I think Hollywood is seriously lacking in that passion with adapted stuff, more often than not.


Title: Re: Relic Wars - The Great Destroyer
Post by: Taegin Roan on September 14, 2018, 06:00:43 PM
I like the music in that one a whole lot better. Feels like it belongs in a fan-made SW film more than the other one did.

Not sure how this would work, but it would be cool to see what some of the writers around here came up with.

Yes, Karmack, Dutchman and LSG have done an incredible job on all of their various stories.


Title: Re: Relic Wars - The Great Destroyer
Post by: Master Medwyn on September 23, 2018, 02:46:06 PM
Both are fantastic!
And I also have been touched by the music of the latter much more! :)


Title: Re: Relic Wars - The Great Destroyer
Post by: Moonfire99 on October 28, 2018, 06:27:11 PM
Hey guys! We will make sure the music will match the scene and feel of what is going on per episode, I already have a huge playlist of music that we can pick from that I have been collecting since last year, so our team is going to go through and find the right one, but if you have suggestions let me know :) Also I apologize for not being as active on this site, but that will be changing soon :D

Post by: Master Resolute on November 01, 2018, 09:30:54 AM
Hey Khaos! Good to see you on the forums.

So, a few announcements.

We've had a lot of problems due to the size of the cast getting the scenes we needed. I believe I have found a way to make it work. Last time we did R.W. the major problem was it was hard to read, and had a limited story. This time I fear I may of turned it into a Graphic Novel.....going to be a lot more reading at times. Which I am weary about...

Anyway, once this wraps up and catches up to " S1 - Quest for Power " we plan on making anything after this live action, with no filters. Finally convinced the team that we could get a better result if im not stuck in edit mode for months at a time. Gives me a chance to actually choreograph instead of using the Freeform method.

Personally, I was hoping the groups next project would be an " Into the Badlands " fan film but they want to put that on hold and work on R.W. Fan Film we had planned next year called " Sunrider ".

I'll check in from time to time. Trying to get everything ready for the 3rd week of Nov.

Either way, we've had a blast putting it together and my feeble attempt at using a Green Screen.

So excited for this. Haven't kept up with this section of the Forum much due to school, but I am looking forward to getting back into it. And Sunrider sounds like it could be awesome as well.


Title: Re: Relic Wars - The Great Destroyer
Post by: Master Resolute on November 09, 2018, 03:45:04 AM
Ok. This project has taught me even more than the last. So we are definitely going " live action " from now on after this. Will make the edit process soooo much easier.

That being said, the way R.W. is currently coming out is very much like a graphic novel IMO. I'm just not comfortable with the format. Could be that it's because im the one writing it and editing so I feel that both are suffering a little. May have stretched myself too thin.

Anyway, I'd like to do a closed screening of Issue # 1. Its still missing some minor details, but is essentially the full issue.  Afterwards I planned getting some feedback.

To make it fair, I'll see how many people respond and do a little raffle. Let's give it until Sunday. (so I can try to add the final touches.)  ;)

I like the graphic novel feel personally.
It might just be me, but when I used to do more audio editing and engineering, by the time I had spent hours (or days, months etc) getting everything mixed right I no longer liked the music it self. I just knew I made it sound the best it possibly could. Do you think maybe you've just seen and heard it all to much? You seem like a perfectionist too, which compounds the hell out of the whole situation.

Anyway, I'm still waiting for it on the edge of my seat. No pressure. :)

That's definitely happening to me. Always does.

Not the turn out I was hoping for. Suppose I'll reach out to the facebook group and see if they want to help.

I'll send you a link when it's ready Silenoz

@ Taegin - We are real excited about " Sunrider ". Our first real go at actual choreography. It will be a short film. Aiming for 10 - 20 minutes with the intention of entering some of it into a competition for next year.

Sweet. I've been working on the script for my own fan film for a while now, and I haven't even come close to finishing it up. I'd like it to be about 10-15 mins if possible (and absolutely beautiful), but I don't expect it to. I am hoping it will be good enough to enter in some of the SW fan film competitions as well, but who knows if it will even be done by then. Definitely excited to see what you guys do. Everything else you've done has been great.

So, out of curiosity....did anyone notice that the fight scene between " Resolute " and " 1st Knight Sunrider " in Issue # 1 is all green screen FX? Master Medwyn is not physically in the scene with me...  ::)

thanks! it's getting there, we have already started prepping our next project...even though im still in full edit mode for Relic Wars. Live action here we come!

We've scouted out our locations and have the cast set. This time around, instead of free form choreography we will take our time and make it look as sharp as possible. Won't have any new info on that for quite some time.

Speaking of info, Issue # 4 is going to be a very special one with an awesome cast. Can't wait to show you guys. The team that did this one really set the bar high!

No idea what the time frame is, full time jobs get in the way unfortunately.

Love the dramaturgy, the split screen scenes were awesome!


Title: Re: Relic Wars - The Great Destroyer
Post by: Master Resolute on April 28, 2019, 10:58:44 AM
thanks, we appreciate you helping with project. Ep4 is considered the best fight scene among our choreograph team! the re-launch of the episodes from 2016 are enroute. I plan on posting all of them at the same time.....having to re-write some things....which im terrible at.

On a side note...I can officially announce the current projects we are working on. ( some others have been scrapped..... )

#1 - Project Sunkiller - ( Originally called Project Sunrider ) - Live Action Fan Film - This one will take some time, as it will focus on a Padawan that surives Order 66. We plan on recording every couple of years until " Sunkiller ", who is currently 10, grows ups to be 16. Then the story quickly moves to Sunkiller being 40. A Father and Son Duo will be our main characters. Real excited about this one but we are concerned with " life " getting in the way.

#2 - Blood and Steel - Period piece about the Viking Invasion of Dublin in the Dark Ages. Follows the " Irishmen " and his mercenaries, who fight for the freedom of Dublin. ( This is a Bruce Lee reference title... ). The J.o.E. LSC is teaming up with a local SCA Viking Group for this one.
 
#3 - Tales from the Dark Side - Comic Filtered - Short stories about Sith/Bogan/The Dark side..you get the idea. Rule in the series, The Bad Guy wins....most of the time....

#4 - Into the Badlands: Circle of Vengeance - Comic Filtered - Follows Nomad on his journey to discover the truth of the " Dark Ones "

Title: Re: Relic Wars - The Great Destroyer
Post by: Master Resolute on May 09, 2019, 12:35:05 PM
the " re-edit " for the end of season 1 is almost done. Figured I'd throw this up, since it is my personal reason why we did the project in the first place. An excuse to train together and cone up with fight scenes. I plan on dropping the last two episodes ( maybe 3.... ) by the end of the month all at the same time.

Hope you enjoy!

Gave up the the re-edit of the original material. The SFX/audio is still a hurdle and I just don't have the free time with everything else going on atm.

Anyway, final post im order.
