StarCraft Chronicles: A 30 minute animated StarCraft Movie!

[glow=red,2,300]Unofficial Starcraft Chronicles CGI Film - Ship Ahoy![/glow]

Image

Once a talented Croatian CGI Artist, and fan of the Starcraft® RTS game had a ... dream. To gather other talented Starcraft fans from every corner of the globe, beyond the discrimination boundaries of real-life wars, race, or beliefs. Coming together to create a fan-made masterpiece ... an Unofficial CGI film of Starcraft.

Two weeks ago, Joystiq and Kotaku headlined ... Starcraft Chronicles: Calling all 3D animators and the like! Today, people from Asia, Europe, Africa, The Americas and Australia form a strong team of 131 members. Over 75 3D modelers. And it keeps growing every passing day. And not just any kind of fan, but old-school Starcraft fans who are now in TV stations, Hollywood CGI Industry, Game Studios and corporations, Film, Graphics and Animation College Students and graduates. The list goes on. Everyone aware that it is a volunteer and non-profit project. Love for this legendary RTS game and for Blizzard Entertainment pouring through their veins. This is no longer the dream of one man. It has evolved into the collective dream of the Zerg ... I mean, of many talented fans. It is a tribute to the many years of games of excellence, and to the talented team of Blizzard Entertainment. And a gift from fans to fans who have long awaited a sequel to Starcraft.

In the upcoming days, Team Leader Kristijan Stuhli and Mitch will release a Workflow/Pipeline plan to all team members. Project Managers and supervisors will be assigned. The Concept Art team already started production, which initiates the first cycle of development of a short Teaser trailer. The teaser will hype Starcraft fans and will show a glimpse of what this team is capable of for the lengthier 30-minutes CGI Film.

Although Blizzard Entertainment has not issued any comment about the unofficial fan-made CGI film, DiVX Corporation has offered encoding support and distribution of the Teaser Trailer and CGI Film. No release date of the teaser trailer is available at this early stage of development.

If you wish to know exactly how the Starcraft Chronicles Unofficial CGI Film will look like, for comparison's sake, watch this Marvel Ultimate Alliance Teaser trailer at Gametrailers.com -- Kristijan Stuhli says the Starcraft Chronicles CGI should be better. I'll leave you that as homework. Currently only experienced High-poly 3D Modelers for characters and vehicles are considered to join before closing recruitment. Expert Texturers(Maya only), and Concept Artists are still welcome to join up the CGI team. Below are more samples of some of the members at the moment of recruitment.

You know what I hate? When people spam publicity articles with a ton of pictures.

Seriously, if you want to get me interested in something, then put it in your own words.

Who wants to read though, I didn't even read his post I just looked at the pictures. The only way he could improve the post is by getting rid of all the text.
