Over-Hyped Game that Needed
to be Delayed Another Year
Uploaded: March 28th, 2021
Some games have such promise when they're announced, when you see the trailers and press briefings. But then they come out. And they don't quite live up to expectations.

This was the first video we shot on our, at the time, new camera, a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 6k. As such it's also our first 4k live action video and just overall had the highest quality footage we'd done.
I had been considering making a parody of Cyberpunk 2077 for a little while and when Jacksfilms announced his 48 hour film festival, I saw the opportunity. After I got home from work that day I hurriedly wrote the script and set up and rendered the opening scene. The next morning we got up at 7 a.m. and went and shot the live action parts and then I spent the rest of the day editing and making effects. Randy made the model of me and I did everything else, including tracking shots, basic animation and compositing, as well as the editing. It was a lot to do in just one day, but it was worth it as it ended up being our most viewed video due to the exposure of winning "Best Satire" in the film festival. Although I really wanted to win "Best Effects", but that didn't end up being a catagory.
