Hello,

DEATH REFUGE RELEASE



After 2 years of intermittent work, I am happy to finish an Iclone 7 movie. I has been a lot of fun work and most important of all, a great learning experience. There is nothing like making a movie like this to learn
Iclone, Special effects, Directing, Editing, etc..

This Episode is called "Death Refuge" of a Series called "The Inmortal Gordon Blake". The idea was to create an Spaguetti Western in a Star Wars setting. The movie is 45 minutes long which is exceptionally long for an Iclone movie. 
I wish there were ways to speed up the work but I am a one man operation. I have already written the next Episode which will start from the end of this one and take it further.

Feel free to comment, good, bad or in between. This is obviously not for profit and just amateurish fun, so keep that in mind...
Warning! Foul language and nudity.

Thank you..

Very interesting story. BigGrin I'm not a Star Wars guy, but I watched the entire episode and thought it quite good.
The bay window shot at the end was done very well, it was a nice touch and unexpected. Thumbs up.
Gordon Blake resembles one of my favorite actors, Woody Harrelson.

Looking forward to the next episode.

Cool pete

Hugh effort Pedrosura sound like you enjoyed making it  and your words "There is nothing like making a movie like this to learn" is so so true. Maybe for future break it down to short episodes  45 min is a long time to keep a viewers attention in iclone.

Pedro - this is extremely well done for a "one-person" film. At first I thought it was doing to 'drag' because of the long dialogue early on (5mins 34s to 13mins 42s), but once past that it seemed to capture my interest. A question that went through my mind was "how much was spent on sets?" - but www.solcommand, 3D Sketchup Warehouse, Reallusion & DAZ were the sources mentioned in your end credits. The 'wide-screen' complete with the hint of film scratches - great!. The music score was interesting - I kept going between "Star Wars" and "Born Free" in my head. Sound FX were plentiful and well placed and the Visual FX were well executed. As is often the case, the completed sound track, *IF LISTENED TO* (as though a radio play), conjures up *Visuals* greater in sophistication than iClone can deliver. (the usual edgy graphics and the not quite convincing vocal delivery (visually) - but hey - that's par for the course, and those things will improve over time with iClone development. That aside, it's a brilliant, brilliant work Pedro. To execute all these various roles of movie making is an incredible challenge and you've done a stellar job covering all facets - without any doubt. My appreciation grew further on 2nd viewing ......  Smile  Question: Can you expand on how you approached the animation? were they library/manual motions or did you use mocap? Also your dialogue (mouth animation) - manual or facial-mocap?  - Steve -

Please be patient with me ..... I don't always 'get it' the first time 'round - not even the 2nd time! Sad  - yikes! ...
