    Hi all,

    I thought I'd throw this pair of clips online today, to give you an idea of what I'm doing with this KOTOR movie. The compression might have the video a little dark, but it shouldn't be a problem.

    Some things to notice:

    1. All shots were color corrected. In a small movie file its hard to tell, but on a tv the different settings really look more photorealisitc and the lighting is a bit more dynamic.

    2. Yes it's my cheesy voice. Not my best work but it was late. The majority of the performances will be top notch, as best they can speaking into a camera mic.

    3. All music added in post, obviously. And Star Wars wipes used throughout.

    Here are the links:

    Two Endar Spire clips will be put up sometime tomorrow. Enjoy! :)

    Holy Sweet Mama-Fritters.
    Uber Kudos, That was a brilliantly polished piece of Machinima.

    Allow me to humble myself at your feet and offer to host higher res versions of it.

    The Mod was only expecting a primitive "Look, I've taped all the cut-scenes out of KOTOR" video, and was proved very wrong. [face_blush]

    Well i must admit they are very well done.
    However i do think that the first one could use a little less techno music, and a little more "kung-foo-action" if you know what i mean.

    I disagree. I think it's actually better than the original music for the cantina.

    It's okey. As good as could be done with what you have I guess.

    Some of the music choices (like the blaring Force theme for no apparent reason and annoying techno music) I didn't like, but they're your choices.

    I know it's early, but are you planning on doing one for KOTOR II? So far this seems really good, and it would only seem right for you to do the sequel. Nice voice work by the way. Very cool.

    Those were abosolutely fantastic! Good job! I can't imagine how you made that look so good, even in the low-rez version.

    Oh, and the voicework was great as well...the music was spot-on, it all worked.

    Oh snap! :p

    Nice work. I like your choice of using non Star Wars music for the Cantina scene. Galactic music has to have changed somewhat in 4,000 years. :D

    Your voice sounds fine as Revan, but are we to assume you aren't going to use the origional voices for the rest of the Ebon Hawk's crew? Rather than re-recording dialog, it'd probably be easier just to re-edit NPC dialog into some of the non "conversation" footage.

    Thanks for all the nice words everyone... makes the work all worth it, believe me. And I take constructive criticism well too, so any comments are welcome!

    A few things...

    I'll be using all the KOTOR voices... only Revan gets the new voice treatment obviously. This project is to put KOTOR 1 in story/film form, so in three years when I want to watch the story again, I can without playing for 45 hours. :)

    I used techno music on Taris because it just seemed more right... maybe on Tatooine we'll get the old school vibe. I might use some of that KOTOR music, so thanks for that link!

    Two more clips will be up tomorrow... take care all!

    Looks good, nice job.

    I wasn't a big fan of the techno music either, perhaps something a little less loud? Place seems more like a cantina than a rave.

    Very nice. You know the PC version has movie files that you can open pretty easily?

    I think the voice acting is great as is, but of course I would like to see it change as Revan matures.

    Only thing I don't like is the music in the cantina scene. It's just too "techno" when there should be a sense of mystery. It's also way to loud compared to the voice over. I have no idea what to recommend, but KOTOR is supposed to be lower tech compared to our movies

    Actually, thats a complaint with both your clips. Make the background noise lower. Do it right now
