Currently working on obtaining several older computers for the render farm needed for this project. The possibility to lease out the farm to finance other materials needed is being considered, as well as free and low cost options for getting what is needed.|
The render farm will require:
minimum of 5 computers, from 500Mhz to 3Ghz each
Linux for each computer
Minimum 8 port ethernet hub
Maya or similar animation program
I have procured the use of a video camera, to start learning the skills needed to start shooting and editing. Also, using the tv capture device, I have also been working on editing out commercials from shows. So far, because the sound seems off, this has been a hit and miss thing.
Also, looking to procure the devices and supplies needed for producing the special effects needed for the show.
50-100 pounds of pig organs and intestines
latex for making special effects
plaster for face casts
clothing that can be messed up or destroyed
5 gallons of bbq sauce, colored to mimic fake blood
50 gallons of corn syrup blood, or other type of fake blood
Also searching out a location for shooting, along with other supplies needed for such a shoot. Also looking at getting the use of a local television station's news desk setup, or cobbling one together for news feeds.
Rest assured, phase 2 is starting, and Shattered Death will be progressing from the written word to show, hopefully within a 1 year timeframe. However, I am looking at 6 month as my personal deadline.
