GRIMWAR REPORT session 006!

Hey Everyone And welcome to this sixth session of the GRIMWAR report!

As you may have noticed, There was no report yesterday.
And there's a reson for this!

I tried to upload some videos to the site...and failed miserably!

You'll notice that the quality is really poor, If one of you know where I could host videos somewere on the web other that youtube, please let me know!

Here's what I got so far...

At least it give a little idea of Jon's animations...but I gotta say this doesn't really do him justice.

I'll be trying to find more efficient ways to show you guys parts of the movie!!

That's it for now....
I got lot's a work to do!!! seeya!

GRIMWAR REPORT session 005!

Hello Everyone, and welcome once again to the Grimwar report!

Five is my lucky number so I bet this will go fine!

Let's go directly to the updates of the week...

1- Jon is working on scene 5, which means scene 4 (the one with the crazy battlefield and the war elephant in the background!!) is completely done!

2- I've already started integrating the animations together for scene 2, and it looks very nice...

3- JC and me have also been working on the story. We spent a lot of time defining the characters and what their role should be.
I will post drafts of the script in " .doc " files when I figure out how. You'll be able to read all our ideas and comment on them.

One character that we came up with is a Girl, I temporarily named her "Maya" (because she's born in the mayan setting, duh). She will play a very important role in the main story-line. Maya will be directly connected to the Grimclan and will be a key element in the summoning of the GRIMGODS!

She'll be changing a lot visually throughout the film.
Here's a pic of her:

So that's it, Thanks for reading, and don't hesitate to leave me a comment!

NEXT: I will do all I can to upload at least a little part of the animation, so you guys can finally see some results!!

GRIMWAR REPORT session 004!

Hello everyone!
Welcome to this 4th session of the GRIMWAR report!

It's been a month already since my last post.
I hope you've all had wonderful holidays!
Personally, I've been slowly getting back to reality, but now I'm all geared up again, and ready to work!

The fist thing I'd like to talk about is the meeting we had at the very warm and charming house of Kyria. We talked about many things and even solved some problems (wow!) !

Here are the issues we babbled about:

1- The script; while still not completely finished, the scenario of this is what will make it good or not. It's not done, but it's getting there. The Idea of of the Grimclan being hunted by an other clan (Assassins) and the great summoning of the Grimgods near the end is pretty much confirmed. This will end up in total chaos and apocalyptic imagery that should make a grand finale.

2- Characters; One other thing confirmed, there will be a female character that will play a very important role, she will be directly connected to the Grimclan.

3- Animation; It was the first time Kyria and Franz saw Jon's animations. And (hem...I already knew this...but...) THEY LOVED IT! So yeah, once again congrats goes to Jon for his great work. I can't wait to post some clips that features his stuff!

Just before I wrap this up, I'd like to give you a sneak peek about a possible design for the female character in the grim clan, let me know what you think!

So That's about it, Thank you for reading, and Have a good one!

NEXT GRIMWAR REPORT: More about the script and hopefully a excerpt of Jon's animations!
