*Storyline*
Attention Macross / Robotech fans, this animations storyline is an alternative version of the original.

If you haven’t watched part one, go watch it!

Also, If you like ANIME like this, when your done watching, go check out Clifton’s Zodiac series. The drawling is a bit rounded but it is well made and well planned.

Explanation:
Look for the green text. It explains when the flashback takes place, and when it ends, you just have to look for it. What your seeing in the flash back is Rays memory of when he and his grandpa are looking at the starts on there fishing boat when the SDF-1 first crash-lands on earth. It then swiches back to present time.

About the music:
I know it is from LOTR. I loved those movies. Their sound track is the best I have ever heard from Howard Shore! I try to get music that is really great and powerful on its won, and "write" flash to it. The animations are basically built around the structure of the music, but since there is no way for me to time everything the way I want it, I have to have very level music that is not to full of ups and downs that can land at the wrong place. This song from the LOTR sound track fit perfectly. The only alternative was the a song from the sound track of Armageddon, but it had too many ups and downs.

It is kind of odd how some people love it since it has LOTR music and some people love it because of it.

The 3D MODELS
I Just read a comment that pissed me off. It suggested that I just RIPED OFF the 3D models.

W-R-O-N-G!

EVERY single 3D model you see in the film before you was built from scratch by myself on my computer. That can be proved.
Well, enough rambling, enjoy.

**UPDATE***

I’m working on a website right now that will explain everything and have a short biography for each character in R O B O T E C H: The Great War. Once it is done, I highly advise that anyone who wants to know what is going on in Robotech TGW, should go there and read a bunch. But I know a lot of people are too lazy to do that so I will try to explain everything in the films.

It had its moments.

Once again, I'm impressed by the amount of time gone into this movie. I can tell you reall put forth some effort.

Comments from the peanut gallery (if you don't mind)... it seemed sluggish in spots; if you picked up the pace, kept it more focused on action rather than capturing the whole moment, I think it would of flowed MUCH better (i.e. the shooting star scene could be cut in 1/4th, and have an even greater impact). Also, it's kind of disorienting, even when you explained in your comments, about the transition between present and past; perhaps a more finite/clear transition would have been more effective. Lastly, the thing you admonished in your music probably would have helped the story; having "ups and downs", or having the music crescendo and decrescendo as the action intenses or dies down, is one of the most effective tools in creating a mood. Music is very subliminal, and usually makes or breaks a piece, and the emotions you are intending to convey.

Keep in mind this is all constructive, do with it what you will. I enjoy watching your movies, especially since you spend quite a chunk of time on them. Nicely done :)

Amazing.

Bah, this thing won't load for me right. Oh well, I saw enough of your work before it started messing up to see that you put a lot of time and effort into this. Your chioce of music was excellent, it fit int perfectly with your movie. Your intro was really nice too, it dived right into the action. Great job, keep up the excellent work.
