Things to come...

Well I've been getting quite a few people pestering me lately on when the next movie's coming out, which I must say I'm pretty humbled by. The concept of having some fans wasn't something I'd ever considered when I started making FS films haha. So thanks for that!

Anyway, here's a little teaser of something I'm working on. It's just some test shots, and the final film will likely feature neither this plane nor song, but it'll give you an idea of the 'feel' the next film might have. ;) This is however a small part of what's going into it. I'm not giving everything away hehe.

This is the first time I've released any kind of work in progress for one of my films, outside the group of people who help me make them anyway, so we'll see how this goes. Also I'd greatly appreciate it if this video does not leave my blog. Links however are fine, thanks. :)

The aircraft: Alphasim's fabulous Saab JAS39 Gripen.
The place: Austria.
The gist: Pure joy.

those shots remind me of the clips I've seen from the "Chevaliers du ciel" vids I've seen from youtube. wicked good job there!

Sorry to bother you with this but I would like to know the name of the song that was used.

Lotus said...

No prob, it's 'Gorecki' by Lamb.

Lotus, I have to say you have a mind that could remake the world's wonders. Your films are great and your advice is great too(actually words can't explain the beauty of the films since they are too amazing). Personally I love the rants.

I find your films have grabbed the spirit and everything else about flying that I'd loved. Your films pulled me back into FSX and I'm happy about it. Your films bring me back to the days of me as a kid dreaming of becoming a fighter pilot(Like that's going to happen, now I'm 6 ft 5 and I think the CF airforce don't make pilot suits my size). I'm sure happy my love for flying is back because I had lost it to the cause of family problems and nothing needed to go into detail. And I have to say thanks. Seriously you have helped my through some hard 'things.' Please continue your amazing art of flight and films in harmony. And THANK YOU.

Wow Smokey, that's the nicest comment I've ever received, here, or on youtube, or anywhere else. I don't really know what to say, except thanks! :)

6'5"? Wow, they'd definitely need to make you a special seat!

As for the passion of flying, I understand what you mean, there's just no substitute for it for some people. I certainly hope you like my next film, because that passion is definitely what it's about hehe.

Again, thank you very much Smokey. It's messages like yours that make the insane hours I put into this stuff amazing and worthwhile. :)

Cheers mate,
