Shortly afterward, the discussion grew heated and turned into an argument, with tragically fatal results.
Over who had the best helmet! 😉
From Harmy’s ‘Star Wars Despecialized’ thread, and thought it worth a bump post in here too 😃
Hello, guys. So, as I said before, I’m getting this month off from work and I’m planning to work on Despecialized.
Now, the reason I’m writing this post is to ask you guys for donations. I hate to do this but as I’m a freelancer, being out of work means I’m not gonna be getting any income and right now, the VFX industry is kind of f*cked, because all filming has stopped due to COVID, so I’m not even sure there will be much payed work for me in the future. Luckily, if it comes to that, I can survive on savings for a while but I will have to cut any extra expenses, so I could really use some help with the software and hardware expenses for Despecialized.
Any donations to firstname.lastname@example.org are welcome and, of course, any donors will get their names in the credits.
Just to be upfront about this, I can’t actually promise any delivery date on Despecialized - I’m starting over with an all new set of sources and right now, I’m still trying to figure out how to properly work with the HDR sources and it’s a bit frustrating. But I’m talking to some guys about possible collaborations, including oohteedee and DrDre, so hopefully, we’ll figure it out together.
Yoda lifting the X-Wing from the swamp in Empire was just mindblowing as a kid; I must have worn out the tape constantly rewinding it and trying to figure out how they did it all. And still magical watching it back now.
