I'm pretty sure this is the same studio who made the latest TMNT CGI film, as well as the Appleseed CGI movies. And helmed by Shinji Aramaki? Sounds like a promising project!
More likely they're appx. 15 and don't know any better.Anyone who seriously calls it a HALO ripoff is woefully ignorant of SCIFI landmark novels and should get the **** slapped out of them. I'm pretty sure Jon was kidding.
Wow, that's cool. I've been thinking about pulling out the DVDs and watching that show again. About a decade ago, maybe slightly more, I used to post on the Roughnecks Forums to talk about the show. It's so disappointing that Sony/Columbia/Tri-Star didn't allow you folks to produce the final few episodes to finish the story.I was one of the editors on Roughnecks: The Starship Troopers Chronicles and while at the time it was about as good as could be done for TV with the amount of time and technology that could be mustered, it was quickly outpaced as technology and talent in computer animation progressed at a faster and faster pace. But I'm really excited to see Starship Troopers being done with modern CG. I'll definitely check it out.
Nope, we were left with a cliffhanger of Carl's prediction of a huge battle to come. I was hoping this might have been some closure to that but after reading the synopsis it isn't. I'm still going to watch it though.Wait a second. (1) that show is a DECADE old now?! (2) it didn't finish? I remember catching a few minutes here and there, but I thought it wrapped up. That sucks if it didn't.
Yeah part of that was when the show was conceived it was originally going to be done as traditional animation. Then at the last minute they were convinced it could be done CG. However the show had already been sold to the syndication company so the time given to produce the show was locked in. Then two of the three effects studios working on it, Netter Digital and another whose name I've forgotten, couldn't hack the schedule and the really badly animated episodes at the begining were done by them. They dropped out, leaving Foundation Imaging to pick up all the slack. Unfortunately it was next to impossible for us to catch up and get it all out on time and Sony just decided to create the clip shows and cut episodes which left the ending hanging. I wish I had got ahold of the scripts for the ending. I remember them floating around but don't remember specifics. They are probably out there somewhere heh.Wow, that's cool.
