I realize it’s been a couple of months since our last update, but we haven’t been idle. A lot is happening behind the scenes to make C&E shine… Color is being tweaked, our sound designer is going to work, and everything is FX, FX, FX.
Every day, some piece of work-in-progress FX video rolls in, like this awesome full-color test of the Temporal Engine powering up:
I know this seems like a slow process, but to be clear, there are several hundred VFX shots in Cowboys & Engines, and we’re still a low-budget film. We don’t have a 60-person CG crew working in shifts.
HOWEVER, we do have a new deadline, and one we think is going to stick: We plan (fingers crossed) on having the film finished by mid-July. In fact, we’ve asked ComicCon to give us a Cowboys & Engines panel, and if that happens, we’ll be screening the opening scene there for the first time anywhere.
That’s all the news. Keep an eye on this space for more updates about the film, the premiere, festivals, rewards fulfillment, etc.
We’re on our way to Mars!
