Firefly Fan Film First Test Footage
Wednesday, January 14, 2004

So, first things last...

After a re-read of the "Firefly:Orpheus" pilot script I came up with a snag... Probably one that the execs at FOX would have had a field day with... The beginning was just too damn slow... But problem solved, rearranged a few scenes added a shootout in an alley and a flashback for our intrepid Captain and I'm feeling good!

But even better is the test footage I did for the Orpheus.

Again, many props over to user Biotech who gave me his model. I did my first pass at re-texturing it, and with a little more work, I think I will really come up with something.

I tried two different engine "sparks" for this one, and I'm digging the vibe I get from the nacel closest to the camera, I think that will be my basic engine exhaust fume.

Next I have to work on spinning the ring at the engine and get the "firefly effect".

So, if you want to take a gander pop over to:

Drop me a line and let me know what you think. I still have some texture work to finish up,and I think I will try another pass tonight.

More to come....

Hehe, I almost commented that it looked dirty... then I realized that it's probably supposed to ;)

It's looking great, although that initial angle is a little awkward.

Not bad... wish i could do that stuff myself, or had the time to do them. well anyways the only thing i can say is with a little texturing and the exhaust on the engine coming out in a straight line more it will look pretty darn close :) nice job man that is awsome work
