I know a lot of folks–cast and crew, as well as Timewarp fans–have been wondering when (and if) it would ever be finished. Well, the FX will be completed, and I’m shooting for the end of this year.
A lot of work has has already been done, and some FX are in the can. But one thing I plan to do is rework the look of the creature. While Don and Joe were okay with it, I was never completely satisfied. And I think now that my skills have improved and the tools available are simply amazing (I’ll be using the current version of ZBrush–check out the mind-blowing gallery), I want to go for something that will WOW people. Don always said that the creature would make of break the movie, and I don’t want to let him down.
Over the last few months, in addition to finishing Sealed Fates, I’ve been ramping up my CG skills to get ready. I hope to have the new Crawler ready by sometime in June, then fully rigged to animate by August. That leaves several months to do the rest.
I plan to post updates as much as possible with stills, clips, etc. So, stay tuned.
