Kickstarter – Goal already reached! What now?

posted in: Uncategorized | 1

Wow, guys… you’re incredible! 🙂

We must admit that we didn’t plan for everything to happen so quickly so we didn’t really think about what we would do if we attained our goal that fast.

You’ve been so generous that we feel we must thank you properly. We talked with our musicians and they agreed that we give the film soundtrack for free to everyone that backed the project. Of course that includes everyone that will help us from this point.

To be honest, 5000$ was the strict minimum we needed to pay for the external fees of the film, but that doesn’t take into account all the costs of living for the next few months until December. If we want to avoid borrowing again, and repay our current debts, we estimate we’d need about 20 000$. So if you feel like helping us, by all means, don’t stop now!

We’d be glad to give you guys bonus gifts if we reach a higher amount, so let us know what you’d like and we’ll see what we can do!

Thanks everyone for the support! It’s great to see that people like what we do!

This is it! You can now access our Kickstarter page and see the first official teaser for Le Gouffre!

You’ll also notice that we did a few changes to the website. First of all, we replaced the old Le Gouffre logo with the new one we designed for the Kickstarter campaign. If you go take a look at our gallery, you’ll see we replaced all the images with new ones taken directly from the film. Also, since we’re starting to have a lot of videos on our Vimeo account, we figured we could as well post them on the website in a new Videos section.

So there you go, we invite you to share our Kickstarter with everyone. Le Gouffre fans, this your chance to help us finish this film!

That’s right, we’re working right now on a teaser for the film! We can’t tell you just yet when we expect to put it online, but here’s a little sneak peek to keep you waiting :

We reworked a lot of shots lately and came up with some pretty cool ambiences. We can’t wait to show you all of this! In the meantime, here’s a few textures that were done in the last week for a sequence that takes place in the forest :

That’s it for this week! Come back soon for more exciting news on Le Gouffre™!

Week 79 – Sky Matte Paintings

posted in: Textures | 5

One thing we wanted from the very beginning with this film was to be able to paint a new custom sky for every shot. Many ideas were cut because of time constraints, but we’re very happy that the skies aren’t one of them because it adds this nice aesthetic appeal as well as allow us to work out the clouds so that they compliment the compositions perfectly. So for this week’s post, here are a few of the matte paintings that were done in the last few days!

And as a little bonus, here’s a new composited shot featuring the mill and villagers in broad day light. Click to see in full size!

Well, that’s it for this time. We hope you’re enjoying your summer, and stay tuned for exciting news coming up on Le Gouffre this fall. Also, don’t forget to subscribe to our Facebook to always be up to date with the latest happenings!
