A quick Workprint showing the progress on some complex VFX scenes. This is not necessarily the order these clips will end up in ultimately, just want to show off some animation long in the works. Still working toward a proof of concept video to use to try to raise funds.
I am actively asking for help. I can not offer payment at this time, but I can offer names featured in the credits under contributing artists.
I very much need some Pin-up style nose art, bomber art, and squadron art for some sequences. If anyone is interested in helping out, send me a message or reply here. Art needs to be at least 800x800 or larger since there may be close-ups, preferably on a transparent PNG. I can get it mixed with the nescessary aircraft textures an such on my end.
As I go through my archive of Projects files and clips I see so much potential and keep thinking "yes, we almost have something here" but what? As I cut clips together and look at animatics and motion tetsts for WIPs and unfinished scenes I am so close yet so very far from having something truly worth showing. I have about a half dozen scenes close to being ready to render, and 3-4 that need re render - but each of those is at least 2-3 days more work to fix/finish, then render time. Render time especially is killing me with only being able to use 1 of 3 machines and sometimes my Workstation. Even if I could get all 3 render machines set up, I couldn't afford the electric bill right now... So many clips though, so many fragments I want to show off already. I can almost see the final scenes in my head... if only I could have a computer to keep up with me...

We added the final batch of free and low cost items to the Render Challenge Store Category yesterday, meaning you now have access to 42 items. You have 5 days left to use 3 of them along with other items in your library to show what “We are all in this together.” means to you.
