As you know, this is the new site for DawnAscendance Productions. And I am just going to start right off with what's been going on since Episode One of "Artifact".
First off, DawnAscendance Productions will, from now on, be known as Dawn Productions. I did this to shorten the name and allow fans to grasp a better understanding of it.
Another thing, Dawn Productions has become partners with another YouTube machinimator channel TBE Clan Movies. I have been talking to the director for a while, and have been helping him out with some stuff for his upcoming machinima "Valkyrie Team". "Valkyrie Team" is due to be on YouTube within the next few weeks.
Anyway, our new partnership is a result of similar ideas for machinimas, and the fact we can help each other out. I have been helping them with their machinima, and I must say, I am very exited to see their first episode. They have professional voice actors, an animator, a special effects artist and masker (me), and many other things. They have a great script, and the story just blew me away. Go to their channel to look for updates.
We are also doing an update together officially announcing our partnership to the world and explaing whats going on with our machinimas.
Now back to "Artifact". I have recently invested over $2000 in software for this machinima. I have things such as Adobe After Effects CS4, Action Movie Essentials 2, Designer Sound FX, and much more. I now know how to mask or matt. (creating armies out of only 16 players as Darknal does). And have most of the story planned out, and it is great.
Episode Two should be out in early April, it depends on how well everything goes. But to give you guys a first look, Markus and Toby will be running back to NAMP HQ to inform Commander Harkus of everything. There will be a battle, and there will be a lot of death.
Episode Three, will most likely not have any action in it. I want Episode Three to be more of the characters talking. To allow the viewer to connect and understand the characters and the story. Which also will begin to unfold in Episode Three.
Episode Four will be when all the shit hits the fan. There will be a battle and the Covenant will begin to pose much more of a threat. Lets just say, Epsode Four will be full of all the stuff I've been holding out on.
I am very exited to begin production of Episode Two, which will start first thing next month. "Artifact" will have a professional animator, masking, explosions, blood, people exploding and disenegrating, and much more awesome stuff.
ONE MORE THING: DAWN PRODUCTIONS AND TBE CLAN MOVIES WILL BE MAKING YOU GUYS A BIG SURPRISE. WE WILL EXPLAIN IT IN THE UPDATE WE WILL RELEASE THIS WEEKEND OR NEXT WEEK. BE THERE!
