Okay, sorry. Again. That came out as way more churlish than I intended. It was written in the trough of a very black depressive state, and while that is no excuse I did want to come back in here and try to explain that I wasn't trying to be a dick about it - that's just a thing that happens when I'm in that mental space. I've been feeling really, really terrible about the results of my work lately. Very much in the "everything I do ends up terrible" frame of mind and when I last visited this thread I managed to convince myself that I had single-handedly ruined the entire project. Which is, I know, ridiculous - but that's how much my brain hates me sometimes.

Sorry for that.

Sorry, completely missed your edit David. I understand where you're coming from, because when I look back on bits and pieces of work and think of missed opportunities or, worse, when I feel like a single moment or scene undermines a larger project, I feel like shit. But, of course, it's important to not reflect exclusively on the bad points (or, at least, not to give them disproportionate weighting in your mind).

Needless to say, your work on the San Francisco segment is very good. There's no accounting for weather and it doesn't much matter – a bit more contrast in the grade will make things look perky, and worse comes to worst, we can brighten the sky a little bit. As an Englishman, I am perfectly used to have a grey-sky picnic on the beach!

update: in a few weeks I should be able to pick up where I left :)

Awesome!

We all need to remember about this project. Let's try and have another couple of week-long surge of enthusiasm to get it finished.

CF: Any chance of looking at that rejigged edit? If you're too snowed under, I'd be happy to take a look at the structure myself (although I don't have the footage and I'm not sure my computer could accommodate ALL the footage from all the shoots).

JoshL: Should we start thinking about themes for the score now?

APE, Alcove, Mike McGuill: How are you all feeling about sound? I understand that a lot has changed since we started this project (!!!) but if you still think you could help out, that'd be amazing. It would be great to start getting some ideas for the spaceship sound, if anyone has any...

C&C: Did you ever pick up that Wellington exterior shot that was discussed about 9 or 10 months ago??

Heck, I can't even remember what this was. I think I gave a few generic establishing shots to CF a wee while ago, can't remember how good they were.

Was there anything specific we were after? I might be able to go out and shoot something myself if it's simple enough.

That's all it was, just some establishing shots to sort-of verify that it was actually shot on location in New Zealand!

I'm still in, although it will depend when exactly we get the locked-off edit. For example, I'm completely stuffed for the next month as I'm already trying to juggle two different projects at the same time.

If Alcove is still in, he was going to do the sound FX design for the spaceship.

I'm still on board, but, like you, the ITCP will have to take a back burner to paying work. I'll do DX editing, Foley, sound effects, whatever.

Awesome, thanks guys.

I think we're probably all in the same boat, especially now that this has been fermenting for over a year(!!). So I don't think urgency can be top of anyone's list of demands, but I do think it's really important that we finish it, given that we've all put in a lot of work and have made really significant progress.

If I don't hear from CF on this thread today, I'll drop him a message and see where he's at with the edit.
 
Alright, well when you've caught up with CF lemme know if we need anything. I think I gave something like that, but from memory what i provided wasn't amazing (Wellington isn't a big city, so night photography is quite tricky as there isn't a heap of city light).
 
hi.
Im still alive, is everyone else :)

Iv sorta left off film making for a bit.. I think it just sorta happened when I wasnt looking.. I have a new love now.. and well she just gets me..

EDIT: That was a metaphor by the way
 
Uhh, so do you all hate me? I wouldn't blame you if you did.

I'm genuinely sorry for making a vanishing act. I let down a lot of people. But I'd still like to finish this. I guess the ball is in my court, I gotta make those edits we talked about.

It's been an interesting year for me, to say the least. But recently I've had a bit of a personal resurgence, and I wanna right this wrong. Expect a new edit soon, like by the end of the week!
 
Hi guys!

Bumping for anyone who still has stuff to deliver.

Cracker Funk: Are we any closer to a new edit? I know you've been hella busy lately, would you be interested in having a co-editor? And, if so, does anyone fancy having a rejig of the edit pieces?
 
Hey guys I remember there was some talk about doing some more vfx stuff to impove what was shot. If this is still the case im still up for doing it
 
I've just watched this thread... been curious to see the outcome since the start... Uhhh since time has passed so much. Any chance a kind of "Status Update" can be made? Like a what has been done and what still needs to be done?
 
There is a rough cut of what has been shot in New Zealand, The Netherlands and various places in the USA.

The opening still needs to be shot. I've got some ideas, but had too little time in 2015. (And I will need some help from other ITers for that as well.)

So, basically post has only just begun, while there is still stuff that needs to be shot.

(Besides that I'd love to shoot more scenes :P
Just watched the first 2 episodes of the new X-Files... brought back that vibe from 2014 when we all shot the scenes...)
