How did you get by with, " Amiga 2000 33 Mhz and 16 Megs of RAM..." producing the "whole first season of "Babylon 5" ". That was a great show, and I believe a breakthrough show for the syndicated, heavy CGI shows that came after? After the first season, what sys. did you upgrade to as the CGI became more prolific? Thanks, Deberus
Hey Elliot!!!!!! Wow, B5, thats exciting, my favorite sci fi show. Did you continue on with B5 through each season? Well, as you know, I use a lot of your store products, and enjoy them very much. Its great having you here, and seeing you up on the front page again. I enjoyed your spotlight forum very much and thank you for the suggestions.
Oh, maybe it was only 33MHZ, and 16 Ram, but you created magic with Bablyon 5. I am not a television watcher in the least, but your story there, and the beautiful effects of the worlds you created hooked me from start to finish in that epic. A grand and perfectly done story, full of romance, the magic of technology, and mystique. Thank you for helping to create Babylon 5. It is still, along with Highlander, the highwatermark of fantasy and grand tales in the last decade of all television. =)
Hey All, Just thought I'd chime in and answer a few Q's. Near the end of second season we got P100s with 64megs of ram and 17" monitors. I left at the end of second season. As far as bloopers go. I had B5 casting a shadow on the planet once. Oops. Point of interest. Sci-Fi channel is currently running the "Wide Screen" version of B5 We never made one. (They're just cutting off the top and bottom.) Getting' into the industry, eh? Well, a good demo reel that has lots of diversity. Whatever you do Do NOT try to tell a story. We need to know you can work on multiple projects, not just one. ThanX for all the great comments. I knew there was a reason I liked you people JesterCGI
Anyone who can work with Ron Thornton and survive has got my vote. That guy knows how to party :)Babylon 5 will always be the thinking mans Star Trek and made me get Lightwave for my Amiga 1200. 45 mins a frame, those where the days. Congratulations, love your work.
I still keep hearing amazing things about those Amigas..years later...lol...geez all I ever did on my brother in laws was play mule..hehehe. Or was that on his commador...lol... And wow you worked on B5..I love that series...! Thanks for being a part of this community having people like you is what makes this city with many personalitys so awe inspiring and unique...;) And your products are fantastic....I hope to obtain your level of skill some day.....:)
Wow, B5! Now that is one TV epic that actually had me sitting on the edge of my seat many times. Great story and great graphics. I remember telling people it was done using lightwave and they didn't believe me. You must be using one of the other tools mentioned in this forum these days. I mean, you are way beyond the need for a consumer level program like Poser. I agree with your demo suggestion. I think one should show that they can animate, create a wonderful scene using low poly count models, and also create a scene using a very highly detailed model. One thing that is looked for is composition and lighting. any budding videographer. JanP
