think it too arty and a tad obtuse for mainstream, general comments on Gizmodo where along the lines of 'WTF', personally I really liked it, rendered look was great and the arty design something else

Very impressive project. It looks amazing and I found the trailer very entertaining. I'm curious if they would keep the existing LightWave pipeline if they get their funding.

It looks great, if they'd spent some time getting the script polished they probably wouldn't need to be chasing Kickstarter money, but it looks amazing. I'd say they keep the LW pipeline because that's what they're comfortable with and they call the shots.

They showed it at the egyptian theathre last nite (friday). The showing was for titmouse animation stuido's 5 second day.
quite fun to see all the concepts the animators came up with.

at the end they showed the full short Black holes.
Amazing work.

I got to meet the creators after the film. Great guys, who love lightwave!! They used nevron for motion capture with 2 kinects, and the work was done on systems with 2 and 4 titans.

The show will be lightwave with octane - and they already have 10 scripts

they also said they have house of cards writer working on scripts as well.


the kickstarter campaign is up to 34k so far.

They are french, and really fun people. I was glad to meet them.
=)

Did they animate the characters in lightwave, too? Not maya or another 3d app?

They did the animation in LW. somewhere I have seen screenshots, it was all LW.

I'll definitely be backing these guys.

The moment I first saw the trailer, I thought of the 'Starlight' music video... and it wasn't much of a shock to find out it was the same guys.
Knew they used LightWave back then, and am very glad they still do and still produce such original and awesome work using it.

Wish them the best of luck!

Nice. Those squash and stretch animations are not easy to do.

Just chipped in with some modest 50 bucks. (Thanks to LightWave Guru's great video-reminders on youtube!)

I'd love to see the series. Until Tuesday there's time to make it possible. Anyone else?
