    Looks great. Impressed with all your custom animations. You've done well to paint a picture of the time, but I feel your cinematic could have developed the main character a little more, perhaps by involving him in some kind of other epidemic related activity which expresses this. But hey, it's 5 minute cinematic so its hard to fit as much as you want in these things. You've done really well :)

    What do you mean? The mask fell and instantly he started to cry, or it is something else in your mind?
    But in reality it is easy to stand frozen, I mean in reality human can stand without moving at all, almost frozen as a photo, just very very slight movement to sides that are barely visible, but in WC3 I guess some more movement is needed. As for the ending, I think dying is a bit cliche, so I avoided that. Instead, since sickness became more visible on him, Searchers spotted him being sick, so it is all over already. When Searcher comes and sees the sick or the dead, you know what is going to happen. This ending was more of symbolic idea. :)
    Thank you. :) Indeed, main character could have been developed more deeply. What I had in mind at start is the portrayal of one of attempts to heal the sick, which would show how desperate and ridiculous times were. I had in mind at least 2 victims to be visited, at least one with healing attempt, but since it was 5 minutes - it was really impossible. 10 minutes would have made a big difference. :)
    Of course. Will do in 2016.

    I'm afraid I might not be able to submit it on Tuesday, but on Wednesday (Polishing takes much more time than expected) but still there is a chance to submit on Tuesday (tomorrow).

    P.S. Great cinematic, APP!

    Apparently something else was on my mind or youtubes... Was certain I heard him cry before the mask fell, but now that I just re-watched it.. he didn't. So forget it :wgrin:

    Any news about whether is there going to be an extension to the deadline or not?
    2 or 3 days would be great.

    And here is another WIP.

    Are you sure you won't be able to finish it on time? Almost 6 days remains, that's a decent amount of time, of course it all depends how many hours you care to spend on it. Nice WIP by the way. :)

    This has been my schedule for past couple of days.
    Wake up
    Breakfast
    Edit
    Lunch
    Edit
    Dinner
    More Edit
    Sleep!
    And I'm currently skipping my job!!
    Clear enough?
    Still I haven't reached the main battle part which takes a LOT of coding and custom animations!
    Of course my problems are mine alone, but 2-3 more days is not a big deal I guess!

    I will be getting a fast internet tomorrow, so I may post it then. I thought I would be getting it only in 2016, but since this happens sooner, I will post my entry tomorrow.

    Hey Arad, are you still uploading? Can't wait to see your entry. :)

    EDIT: Oh you already uploaded it. Will take a look and give my first impression there. Make sure to post at least a link here stating that it is your entry for the contest.

    YouTube account licenses have little to nothing to do with copyright issues (unless it's an official company/band channel which more than likely means it's copyright protected). Check around for anything about copyright policies or if they give permission for their work to be used royalty free. If music artists are serious about their work, they'll mention something about it somewhere.

    Just tick off "monetization" and it should be fine. Youtube usually only have a problem if you try to earn money of of stuff with other peoples music in it.

    So I take it that we can use SE/Music under youtube license, since we don't use them for making money? Of course if we don't consider the prize as "making money"? Is it making money?? These policies really have no clear boundaries!

    I know. Plus January 3rd I need one or half a day more.

    Personally I have no problem for this to be extended a day or two, I guess same goes for other participants who already submitted their entries (still waiting for Tickles' final submittion), so I guess you could contact Archian via PM and ask for it to be extended for at least a day, unless of course he keeps an eye on this thread.
