You'r all talking non-sence, you'r all talk and no work, shure its easy to say lets do this and lets do that. But do you realize how much money, resources and time its gona take to do this. This isnt some little annimation of a lynx shoting, a movie is serious stuff and ill bet that none of us here know anything about movie making.

You'r just saying stuff that you heard some where or saw on TV. So lets be realistic here, this is not gona happen. The OP3 games alone are taking already about 2-3 years to make and theyre still barely finished.

Im not agains this, an op movie sounds like a good idea, but be serious.

*thumbs up at it2000us's post* I couldn't have said it better  ^_^

People, if we keep saying it will never happen, guess what: it won't happen! We need to all gather together, support those working on the movie and make this movie work! Yes, we do have two sequels that are being made, and still have a ways to go. I don't care if it takes 5 years, or even 10 years, I will be glad to support this movie effort in any way possible!

Well, phillip, since you'r the one whos doing most of the taking about this movie thing. Than why dont you provide us with state of the art computer art/movie making programs, people who actualy know what theyr doing and how to make computer generated movies. Give us advertizers and a couple milion dollars so that we can at least get a jump start, o and dont forget to get movie starts who will start in the movie(Dont say that we will be in it, cuz no1 know how to be a movie star).

So after you have got all of this stuff tell us about the progress.

OPPrime im not being harsh so dont make me look like a bad guy.

PS:Even if we do say its gona happen, its still not gona happen, because no1 here will contribute milions of dollars on this thing no mater how much we like the game. Because we have lives and families who we will need to spend money on.

It2000us, looking to one person to make things happen will not get something done. I recommend we have a committee or something that will be put to the task of organizing things. However, we need a story first before making it into a movie. For the time it will take to write the script, it may be some time that can be used to the advantage of getting this movie to work. I don't care if it takes five years to find a way to do it, something like this may take patience and us not giving up. When I had said what I said earlier, I had not meant that it would be easy. Maybe we will get lucky, but that is not likely. For me, it may take me a while to get together a script. I want to make it so good, that we won't have too much trouble finding willing people to do it. It is in my opinion, that we do not seek people until a first draft is done. It is better to show that we have something waiting to be made than just an idea.

I am currently thinking up a story. I plan on it being original, and the main characters not being from any novella written. My current idea is to have the three main characters be friends. One will be an ideologic socialist that will go with Plymouth, and experience things from Plymouth's angle. One will be a Eden riosec, who will be in a good bit of combat throughout the War of New Terra. Then there will be one in an administrative position, being the head honcho that runs the day-to-day things in the Eden Command Center buring the war. The last person will be more central to the plot, since he is the one who finds out some interesting things, but are only pieces to the grand scheme of things. He will know of the reassigning of several scientists to an unknown project before the Blight was released, the unexplained deaths of three Eden Councilors, he'll find out about how the Masters sabotaged the Blight, and towards the end of the movie, he will find out who told the Masters to sabotage the Blight. The movie will go through the War of New Terra's major battles, and will end with a cliffhanger, Eden's forces now trying to stop the countdown for launchoff of the stolen RLV at Plymouth's Spaceport. I plan on this movie containing elements of mystery, suspence, and action.

First of all you need a story, doesn't have to be in detail just basically what’s going to happen.
Second of all you need a script, something for the characters to say.
Thirdly you need to make a story board, a basic visual description of what’s going to happen in each scene and when the characters say there lines then you go back to the story and script and improve and so on.

That's just the beginning of the stuff needed to make a Movie.

Geeee, if we come across a million dollars, it2000us, you'd be the first to know. Hmmm, maybe we should put It in charge of funding, since he seems to be concerned about it. To get money ... it takes time. (Duh belongs here) At the moment, there appears to be no solution to this issue, but that does not mean a solution will not present itself.

I am now writing the introduction. In the script I am writing, I am giving the whole Outpost intro-movie thing on the 1.5 CD, but am putting in more details, and saying what will the audience be seeing as the narrator is talking. I set the Vulcan's Hammer hitting Earth in 2062, and took into account the liklieness of there being lunar and Mars colonies, but the Mars colony was destroyed in a storm, and the lunar colony is pounded by fragments of Vulcan's Hammer.  Another thing I hope that will be done in the movie is that we get to see the missile split Vulcan's Hammer. That would be cool.

Im working in mya , merlin and studio works , im currently trying to get my scrip together and nothing is perment and i gladly take criticism, also i have been looking at what some of you have given me and find that it is with great effort that everyones input is important , but must stay true to the out post story line if this is going to succeed and with money being such an important con cern is that , this movie will have alow budjet but not cheep results , take piece by piece and it does not matter how big off a budjet we have. but that does not mean i cant see why not use what i have learned at my field of choice in entertainment technoloogy i can practly do all the sets myself.(yes we need actors i know ). but it is important that the proceess of haveing the scip finished first.

On a side note the programs i am curently working on i am working on new avis of outpost 3  and if all goes well i can help the two versions of outpost 3 that are being worked on. by supporting outpost video clip animations

Selfdestruct, you are writing a script?

I am currently fleshing out my second level of planning for the main story of the script I am writing. One thing I should be careful about is not having the real story start too late in the movie. Also, as for special effects, I am writing it as I would imagine it, and from there, we can "downgrade." For example, if my intro is too grand, I could have one of the main characters tell the story as a simple presentation without many special effects.

since i have not been online for a while i didnt know what all this forum said so i started reading (though i stoped about 20 replays back cousi got boored) a lto of ppl say that it cant be done . whel i disagree. for one thing i made my own short!!!! lame!!!! ass!!!! s***y!!!!! 3d movie about outpost. not that its not lame but that was the first 3d modeling and movie making i ever did . it took me 2 days to make it (it would have taken me 6 hours if i knew what i was doing but i had to learn it first) . what i am saying i think it surely is posible . though i would make it to long. more for an impression of the game being cool then just a hole movie with good and evil etc
becous havning my signature 5720 characters long or so is a little crazy and hacker would prob del my signature again i diseded to make a pic of it ... this is acualy my name in letters highlighted. i just took a ss  :D

hi , i had such hopes for this movie and the car well a while back about the outpost car mod and was going really well i had everything i needed but the car couldnt keep going and so i sold it as is for like 850 and then i bought my new car its a 2002 dodge neon sxt, silver color its nice but i cant really do much to it the way i was going to do the blazer, besides paint and maybe a modified body. the dream crashed then, i wanted do the movie but with constant work every damn day it seems like and plus college its hard for me to work on it i felt like i bearly started it, but lately i show up and then i drop of the radar im sorry and now i should have no excuse for it now that im off but you know that feeling that you always went somewhere and then you feel weird that you came back after so long, i sort of feel like that.
