The early tests started in March 2010 while the final version only hit the internet in August 2011. Unlike some of our other delayed projects What a Night! wasn't postponed due to technical issues or lack of spare time but mainly because we were waiting for the soundtrack created by Florent, our sound designer.

While I certainly did enjoy the idea, it was oriented toward montages and frags show off videos. I then decided to write my own vision of things about what it felt to discover Machinima and Halo videos in the pre-Halo2/xbox live era.

We <a href="http://tgo-gmbh.net/en/blog/138_Doctor-who.html">already wrote about</a> this fun and fresh machinima, but today and exclusively for you guys, <a href="https://twitter.com/#!/ArcDistrict">Ash Winters</a>, the man behind the show is answering some of our questions. Sat, 14 Jan 2012 16:34:34 +0100 Doctor who? http://www.tgo-gmbh.net/en/blog/138_Doctor-who.html Doctor's Orders is a Halo 3 machinima series directed by Brandon "Ash Winter" Prater from NewScape Pro. About ten minutes long, all three episodes mixes FX, ninjas and some nice non-Halo jokes. The story follows a pretty crappy doctor and his <del>maid</del> assistant Abbey from Arc District who have to deal with an evaluation. Meanwhile, the rookie Kory search for an internship which will lead him to this Arc District and the Doctor. (no, not him. That one in this story !)

Linked to a powerful site like Bungie.net, it alows to take and upload high resolution picture very easily. Which is very useful to create galeries or posters for instance. As its name suggests it, Change of Scenery is a real change and thus deserves some fine posters. Sun, 09 May 2010 22:26:20 +0200 Making of Change of Scenery : fight scene http://www.tgo-gmbh.net/en/blog/94_Making-of-Change-of-Scenery--fight-scene.html <div class="content_images"><a href="http://tgo-gmbh.net/blog/94_Making-of-Change-of-Scenery--fight-scene.html"><img src="http://tgo-gmbh.net/images/cos_s2combat.jpg" title="Combat au sommet de la bizarrie" alt="Scene 2" /></a></div> Change of Scenery’s scenario surprised some; the strange rhythm, the absurd dialogs, some subtleties here and there. The downside of this is that any unprepared audience might get lost in this labyrinth both logical and upside down at a same time. On the top of misunderstanding (or is it just tour own craziness?) lies the fight scene far away from regular Halo machinimas standards. Let’s try to take a look at what is really happening. Sun, 09 May 2010 02:46:31 +0200 Pico's interview http://www.tgo-gmbh.net/en/blog/60_Picos-interview.html <div class="content_images"><a href="http://tgo-gmbh.net/blog/60_Picos-interview.html"><img src="http://tgo-gmbh.net/images/itw_ssjpico.jpg" alt="picow" title="SSJPico" /></a></div> With only four films Pico played a major role in the early Halo CE machinima history. Over five years after the release of his last movie Lethal Rage 4, he answered some questions for us Wed, 26 Aug 2009 14:51:04 +0200 Making of Change of Scenery : first scene http://www.tgo-gmbh.net/en/blog/53_Making-of-Change-of-Scenery--first-scene.html <div class="content_images"><a href="http://tgo-gmbh.net/blog/53_Making-of-Change-of-Scenery--first-scene.html"><img src="http://tgo-gmbh.net/images/cos_scene1.jpg" title="Première vraie scène si on oublie l'introduction en fait..." alt="Dialogue avec mon Capitaine" /></a></div> Except in <a href="http://tgo-gmbh.net/blog/52_Making-of-Change-of-Scenery--the-introduction.html">its introduction</a>, Change of Scenery has a fast rythm. In less than a dozen minutes the hero go from "nearly fired blue" to "desperate jobless" to "spy in the red camp" and ends up betrayed by her own team. Well it's not that sad, she brought the flag to her team. Whatever, the first scene had to present the character and her links with the blue team. Tue, 11 Aug 2009 16:24:11 +0200 Making of Change of Scenery : the introduction http://www.tgo-gmbh.net/en/blog/52_Making-of-Change-of-Scenery--the-introduction.html <div class="content_images"><a href="http://tgo-gmbh.net/blog/52_Making-of-Change-of-Scenery--the-introduction.html"><img src="http://tgo-gmbh.net/images/cos_intro.jpg" alt="intro" title="intro"/></a></div> If there is a part of the film that cannot be missed, it's the introduction for sure : rather long, totally pompous and aparently breaking the continuity with the rest of the film, it raised some eyebrows, generated some questions and gave us some insults from the audience. Explanations. Tue, 11 Aug 2009 15:49:11 +0200 Time for a new vision of european machinima ? http://www.tgo-gmbh.net/en/blog/51_Time-for-a-new-vision-of-european-machinima-.html <div class="content_images"><a href="http://tgo-gmbh.net/blog/51_Time-for-a-new-vision-of-european-machinima-.html"><img src="http://tgo-gmbh.net/images/machinimatue.jpg" alt="machinimatuer" title="tué" /></a></div> What a dark period for the machinima world. After <a href="http://www.machinima.fr//index.php">the closure of machinima.fr</a> by Xavier Lardy, MPREM, another great machinima website, <a href="http://www.mprem.com/e107/comment.php?comment.news.830">has annouced it will be closing its doors</a> by october the 13th.
