Cool stuff, not sure what parts that were rendered in LightWave though...

Well...
That was "frightening".

Well done.

LW's Renderer is really nice, even looking at all that's available on the market.

Well the initial effects...but the last shot with the mothership looked good.

Yeah looks good. Would love to see a breakdown of some of the shots.

Reminds me of the Westwood game cinematics we use to do. I mean, this is *much better* quality than then. Just has that, "feeling."

yes..cg effects pretty nice, especially the bigger ship in the end...could be entertaining...it lacks that extra touch though in cinematography, the cam angles are a little to stiff and dull in comping, especially in the non hand held scenes at the end..but what can be expected with probably a very small budget.

This is Bruce Branit behind the supervising and production it seems, the guy who did the beautiful short world builder in which lightwave was used a lot, think he did the smoke monster in the series "Lost" too.
One of the military guy´s seem to be the same guy as the one in world builder too...a few years later:)
Smoke effects are often very similar today..but I wouldn´t be surprised if they used turbulenceFD, and wouldn´t be surprised if they used Lightwave mostly for the vehicles/alien crafts.

Bruce Branit reel...

will keep an eye on it and hoping for a good story too..not only vfx.
