And we're back on a semi regular schedule! We've previews and news a plenty so lets get this cracking!

:iconmikkelnielsen: reached out to me late 2012 shortly after our Kickstarter run and offered to do a demo to flex his sound editing muscles. We were in progress of working on our animatic and tightening up our storyboards and so we submitted for him a portion of the brawl between Rune and Braun - which itself is part of an extended combat sequences featuring Rune and Tyr paired against Braun (oh if only one had the time and money.) Mikkel took what we gave him and did a marvelous job of sound mixing and then turned it back in. I then went in and added a few additional sounds I had sitting around in our library -notably a little voice work from Diallo Johnson, who did Tyr for us during one of our earliest passes at a pilot script. The results are, as you can see, quite fun! We want to begin previewing bits of our storyboards and bits of our animatics for all to see as we're going to be pushing into our production schedule, finally, in the aftermath of some MAJOR milestones and deadlines that had been holding us back.

Story: Rune and Braun are rival bounty hunters. In the ARMSmasters world, in the aftermath of a great global war that utilized machines vs super-human warriors, the surviving ARMSmasters founded an organization known as The Union and through it structured a competitive system of monster slaying, bounty hunting and trouble shooting. Both Rune and Braun are members of this system and circumstances bring the gunslinger and the battle-shifter into conflict with each other in a dusty town deep in the wastes of The Frontier.

As this is an animatic, the music in the background is strictly a scratch track used to time the animatic. This is custom for storyboard creation and animatic timing.

great timing on the film/scenes.
First reaction is... Van Hellsing vibe. XD
In a good way though!

Awesome, thank you. :D I've heard 'Trigun Vibe' and now 'Van Hellsing' vibe and both in good ways so I'll chalk that up to us moving in the right direction. :D
