    What I think most people want, is to be remembered for their in-depth story and compelling game play, rather than just a movie-map most people are only going to watch once and then put it aside or delete it.

    It isn't dead, it isn't dying, just that we need some time to come up with a new cinematic.

    I'm not advertising or bragging or trying to sound good or nothing... but i am currently in the progress of finishing off The Last Samurai, my Cinematic story.
    I'm just stuck at the moment, on the last battle. After i have finished that and polished the rest of the map up, i will upload it. xD don't know if it will make any difference though.

    and i have been making a survival horror-Mystery-Dungeon Crawler-strategy-ATB Time Based-RPG.
    60% of the game will be cinematic, 40% of the game is non-stop action-survival.

    i don't know if wc3 could bring a horror- kind of a a feeling. but i am making a lot of experiments on it.

    your post might not be entirely relevant to this forum section, but sounds like a possible interesting concept.

    To give you an idea of eerie and scary scenes, have a look at the map "Zombie Island", quite well executed as in games.

    i tested that map..

    i am surprised, someone had the same idea of the camera system! :D
    yes, i am using that kind of camera xD

    the map is still on its 35%.

    still got a long way to go.

    but that didn't feel scary though. D:

    Good job on your map, just a little more changes, some more sudden stuff (And maybe a really scary Korean ghost model I saw in Silent Hill) which appear could help add to the "scariness" too.

    The answer was no several months ago. Nothing changed, so no.

    Foxy, if you REALLY REALLY want to have a contest, first, make a thread in the contest submission section and see how many people want to join.
    But I doubt there will be many contestants.

    With a contest it is important you set up an interesting theme/genre, and draw the attention of right crowd. It's hard to get cinematographer to start making cinematics cause frankly there aren't many of them left.
    I myself started making Cinematics with the StarcraftII editor.
    If there is a really interesting theme/genre and more than a handfull cinematographer tend to join, who knows I might throw my 5 cents in the old editor and brew up something.

    How about a horror or battle theme? Those are probably some of the most appealing

    In my opinion, an 'Open-Theme' Cinematic Contest would be better choice to revive 'Cinematic Making' plus bringing people to compete in the contest.

    Not everyone can make a Battle/Horror/Comedy cinematic, let the contestants make whatever cinematic they want according to what they are best at. That way, they will not be bound to a certain 'genre' and are free to display their story/tale.
