This will be the webpage devoted to the Civil Protection video series. I've just finished the first episode which you can download from the link above. As for the series, it's inspired by the oppressive policing force within the game Half-Life 2. It's a comedy created using the game engine itself to animate everything. Right now I am the writer, animator, director, producer, cinematographor, editor... pretty much everything you see in the episode is my fault. This episode does contain some language and violence, but it's not much worse than a PG rating.

It was a real pain to learn the SDK and animate all this, so I won't be starting on another episode immediately. Not that you have any frame of reference, but the next one should go much more quickly since a lot of the time was spent on learning everything. Whenever I start on it again, that is. I need a break, I'm practically dreaming about those spooky metal helmets that the CP units wear. Anyway, feel free to contact me or post comments about whatever.

Aww, acepilotf14 doesn't know the real difference between animation and "3D figures" (They're called "models"). Go look at Wikipedia, champ.

In any case, fantastic machinima. Nice animation, writing, and camera angles.

Youtube it!

Hey, glad you are liking the video. As for Youtube, I'm not crazy about the video quality, but some people have already posted it up there anyway. Also, someone put this up on filefront, which is good, because it turns out I'll lose my university webspace once I graduate in a couple months. And don't worry, I plan to make more, I've written most of the script for the second one.

Ross, Jo showed me the movie this morning. It was a bit funny. If the production was too easy I now understand your leaving AI.

Hope to see more 'clean' episodes after graduation? Keep of the fabulous work.
