Thought it might be helpful for planning purposes, should we decide to try to quickly film some scenes before Until Uru shards are shut down.

Here are the custom avatars which appear in each episode (with titles and proposed titles):

Episode 5, "Safety First" - Sharper, Engberg

Episode 6, "Conversations with Victor Laxman" - Laxman, Sharper

Episode 7, "Kidnapped!" - Laxman, Watson, Sharper

Episode 8, "Unrest in Ae'gura" - Sharper, Rand (not critical to scene), Watson

Episode 9, "The Secret Room" - Sharper

Episode 10, "Resistance and Consequence" - Sharper

Episode 11, "The Fall of Phil Henderson" - Engberg, Laxman, Kodama

I realize that Sharper is not entirely custom, but it does help make him thoroughly recognizable.

Edited out extra tag

Shucks! You're welcome!

Wasn't sure exactly how helpful it would be but I thought we could use it to triage an episode or two. Smile

We'd better start filming them, then. We have just about 5 days. Give or take a few hours.

I've just completed some solo filming of Engberg in the neighborhood and on the Great Stairs, for integration with Episode 5.

I've sent a request to Ashtar to help me set up filming for Laxman and Dr. Watson for additional scenes. I will film these by myself as well.

Ideally, I'd be doing this sort of filming after filming publically, so I can make the angle of shots match exactly offline, and easily merge in pictures with other people's avatars standing around - just as I did for Episodes 2 and 3. But for now, this is good enough, which is to say, it's better than nothing.

This filming does not and cannot make use of new emotes for DRC avatars, but that isn't a huge problem. This film is really just a backup plan for the future - I understand we may have some additional options available to us. But that is a topic for later if and when those options become exerciseable. Smile

Backup film is a good thing anyway. One can never tell when it might come in handy, even if we DO "find a way" some other way.

(Woot! 9.65GB of Michael Engberg at 800x600.)

Thanks for doing this. I'm working on getting episode 7 scripted. The hardest part of this one is choosing who gets to keep their lines in the long philosophical discussion before the kidnapping.
But thank you for reminding me about the DRC's inability to use the new emotes. I consistently forget about that. ::edit, edit::

I'll post a part-way script shortly.

Feel free to suggest that they use the new emotes, and if you have backups, throw those in too.

One, uh, never knows what we might be able to do later.

I've just captured scenes of Laxman speaking for all of his parts in Episode 6. Not sure how easily I can integrate them, and I'm guessing at the locations where these speeches are made (I put Laxman near the clock for one part, and at the steps to the left of the fountain for the second) - but I've got them in case we need them.

Todo: 7, 8, 11.

I'd hurry up, Marten, apparently Ashtar's posted on the UL forums that he's taking TGT shard down today.

Spoke to Ashtar, he says it's a misunderstanding and his server goes bye after the auth server goes bye (should be on Monday per plan)
