We’ve cut a new trailer for the pilot episode project, in response to fan feedback.
This one is much shorter and more energetic — hopefully catchier. We’ve also revised the
Kickstarter video to start with this 6-second teaser. The old
trailer/teaser/demo/short is still available on YouTube and Vimeo, of
The idea behind the 2-minute “teaser” that we did before was to make
the most of limited 3D assets and also to demonstrate a short piece of
animation to prove that we have the necessary skills. I think it was
very successful at those goals.
However, it was rather slow and perhaps a bit high-concept for an
actual trailer. And that is not, of course, an accurate impression of
our intent for the series. Also, by now, we have a lot more 3D asset to
show off, even if they aren’t all quite finished (some of the assets in
the new trailer are still lacking final textures, but I think the result
is still pretty good).
This also allows us to get straight to the subject in our Kickstarter
video, and it uses the intro from the track “Space Zine” by Elaine
Walker which we are using for our main track for the series (you may
recognize this from some of our earlier videos).
Hopefully, this is much more on target, and perhaps will help with the Kickstarter campaign. Please share it!
