...and I alone survived to tell the tale.

THE WIND, an epic drama set in a midwestern highschool, needs you! We are presently in need of a wide range of designers to join our already dedicated team. Join people from all over the world and come to make something unique and special! THE WIND is a mod/film hybrid, that will be a playable mod that will also be used for Machinima (video game driven films). Essentially, it will combine film, video and Machinma content, done mostly in Half-Life 2's Source engine. Dark, dramatic and epic, it will break through the boundaries of experimentation and be a serious attempt at doing something completely new for feature films and Modifications!

If you are interested thus far, be sure to drop us a line! Just visit www.thewind.tv or simply check us out here at ModDB. Thanks for your time.

Over the summer THE WIND, a feature length machinima, has made some strides forward. With the script currently under examination at several studios for film and animation, THE WIND has pulled into the background to work on going into production in a professional capacity. One thing that was created over the summer was a press kit. Inside that kit is a collection of 400 storyboards that illustrate every dramatic moment of the feature. Created by the writer and director, we wanted to share some of them with you. See more images now at www.thewind.tv

Ok im wondering why you have that actress?

This mod has been here ages, nothing looks like its ingame, nothing looks like its working, yet you are hiring actors for the mod when they will have to wait a while by the looks of it before they are needed, the mod mite even die by then.

Correct me if i am wrong and you are not showing the progress images, but then you have to explain why.

Thanks!

This is a film, called a machinima, not a mod. I assemble my actors for several reasons: To model for the characters - which are under production, to rehearse the script - for when we're ready to do voice work and to inspire me to write - which happened initially.

We have been here for ages, true, but most films, especially animated ones take years, not months. Most Pixar films, for instance, take four years of production and release NO info or "behind the scenes" images until they start doing publicity for the release. We are following suit mostly, but if you looked around, you would actually see production shots..

Thanks for the interest.
