DISCLAIMER: THIS IS PURELY ARENA & MACHINIMA. NO BG. THE OPPONENTS & WE SUCK. CONSIDER THAT BEFORE RATING
Aaalright.. Let's get to the movie summary then, shall we?
This has been my favourite project this far but at the same time it has caused me so many troubles that I can't even imagine. I've been working odd shifts, Vegas has been crashing, I've lost motivation, I've been busy as hell and my graphic card's been broken two times since I started this so the footage this movie has is from the last week of the season 8. Which means the opponents aren't really gladiator-worthy. But that wasn't never the main point of LOLBURST. I just hope that all the hard work I've used to this project pays out.
I have a full storyline planned out for Cataclysm and I had so many ideas for LOLBURST 3! but I felt like I couldn't give you guys what I really wanted to do so I ended up gathering the material I had and making this a prologue for the actual storyline that'll go on in Cataclysm. (LOLBURST 3!)
I wanted to get this out before all the footage becomes irrelevant while maintaining the same quality as before. What I had in mind was a short, maybe 14-16 minutes of actual movie.. Little did I know that this would grow up to be 28 minutes and a few seconds over that. I've tried new things and I'm getting more into machinima.
This movie is like 95% done. I'll make a short list of what I wanted to do but didn't have the time/mindset to finish:
° The pineapples. It began as an inside joke and I thought it would be a fun little "minigame." It wasn't really that high on my priority list so it was just left there unfinished.
° Voiceacting. I know. I promised. I just didn't have good enough equipment that I could've provided you with good audio and as I said, I was working against a tight schedule.
° A few fixes on the chroma keyeing/color correction on the machinima scenes. The drake has a pinkish glow on one scene and I'm way too bright/dark in the scene at the Temple of Storms.
° The wobbly and blurrish subtitles. I actually inserted the subtitles as the very last thing before rendering. I had a few project-wide effects that I was using and didn't find a quick fix for those so you'll just have to deal with it. Sorry :(
° A proper outro and a few more cutscenes. (Darkfox transforming during a fight f.e)
