MUSS Cause - A 3D CG movie project by Ciullo Corporation - provisory promotional content

Narrator/Sebastianus Conditor says (in Italian):
"ATTENTION! CONTENTS OF THIS VIDEO ARE PROVISORY AND MAY BE SUBJECT TO FURTHER MODIFICATION!

Welcome! Come on, come forward! Do you want to know how it all began?

All began with the purchase of a SD VideoCamera which produced a sci-fi short film, but, due to the almost complete absence of special effects, naturally it was never published.

Years later we discovered the 3D Computer Graphic. It was so we started to build our first models and make the first animations.

But, perhaps, a brief video may make you better understand the improvements we achieved, so get comfortable and enjoy the show!"

That'a a briefing!

Looks like you're gonna make quite the show!

The best show ever! Modestly...

The camera movement seems a bit choppy at times instantly clipping to a few frames forward. Hopefully will not be that way in the final product yes?

The graphics really take me back to when I enjoyed playing the PSX system, those were fun times.

One thing I would suggest in regards to the speakers is providing subtitles for the English speakers on this site. Another thing for the voices is noise filtering and then recording in a quiet room in the house to remove as much static in the background as possible. Same thing goes for the music since at times it makes a slight popping sound from the drum track and the bass.

Aside from those issues, everything else seems to look fine.

Hopefully it won't...

The subtitles were one of our main concern... actually we're working to make them available in at least 4 languages, both on trailers and final release. We will certainly try to clean the records, or buy a new microphone, as much as possible.

Thanks for the feedback.

The camera movements are still a bit choppy/static, at times a bit fast, at times almost too maneuverable. It just struck me that the camera is always placed in front of the character, from the viewer perspective, but always from the same angle. I wonder how it would look if the camera cuts between angles, for example when you enter the room, the camera shifts to a corner of the room and you see the door/character, that might give it a more wholesome view.

I like the atmosphere in this, the blue corridor at the start, the lights and glow, the detailed textures and patterns on walls and surfaces. The beginning seems complete, but after that it's clear that it's a work in progress. Textures are bland (or maybe there are no textures yet and that's the default glow on dimensional surfaces?) and the mileu a bit static, and I have no idea what's really going on either, I guess if I new italian some things would be revealed. :)

In space, how about making some of the stars sparkle in the background, and using more than one layer of stars to add some dimension? Maybe one layer with haze/debris and one with a more distant background?

I like the characters towards the end. Looks like this has potential, but as it is... well it's atmospheric but rather purposeless when you don't understand it. :) Keep it up though!

Ahah, the tricky title "MUSS in progress" stands in fact for "Work in Progress" :D
You may add "review request club" at the bottom ;)

The initial sequence is a try to make a "true" first person look, in fact we "cut off" the head of the character to replace it with the camera (I would have placed two conical camera into the eyes, but it is rather impossible to overlay them in render).

Really not more than I also said into the description, we're not much fans of "see-all-movie" trailers 'cause they tend to disappoint the viewers at last... not that we already have all movie anyway. All scenes, except the first 3D CG extract after the "real" record, have been copied and pasted from other trailers and then, towards the end, there's the new stuff... camera is mostly still to set, however there's just few "definitive" scenes in there: into cockpic and the aiFIGHTER (the small green ship) spaceflight scenes the ships were even linked to it in order to move it along with the camera, while the portal and the other newest ending scenes there's still "a bit" of work and crowd to add before attempting a more wide view.

Well, there's no painted layers or textures, but a more dynamic system called "procedural shader" which bypass the need of bump and UV mapping and calculate all refraction/glows directly on the surfaces, avoiding some "complications" that occurred into the classic system... otherwise, all things (stars, asteroids, nebula) are actual scene object: 3D models for the space rocks, volumetric clouds (a form of 3D cloud) for the nebula effect and bulb light for the stars... I've thought already we could use to add some dynamic effect to the asteroids and the stars, some small rotation and a bit of blink, and even some inflating effect to the nebula, but that's why to make a W.I.P. before attempting the final release...

About the purpouselessness... we're saving the final strokes for the launch trailer, at that time we'll already have the full movie.

looks like a version of doom. Without any of the fear or scare.


Ciullo-Corporation responds:

Well, it isn't DOOM... but thanks!
Already the fact it remembered you a masterpiece like DOOM make me feel very proud... as for the fear and the scareness, just wait the end of this year and you'll see them both ;)
