As popular as the beautiful, race, portrait, art is showing to be with forum comments that might imply that an opening cinematic trailor for Distant Worlds would be popular in various forums, websites(like gametrailers.com), and YouTube.com view and comments...if the cinematic is well done also.
That seems like such a grand payoff for any time used on creating the cinematic.
Again, it might be simpler but still grand to do a good version of still pictures panned and zoomed with a narrative.
I stated this previously.
Thankyou, Adamsolo. I just watched the YouTube, Sins of a Solar Empire intro. I will watch the sequals and Sword of the Stars and Homeworld intros also.
It's very good. It's not even a motion picture but instead the stylish form of still artwork pictures that are slowly zoomed in or out or panned sideways during a narative story and music. Maybe that is easier and faster to do and maybe some thing the developers of Distant Worlds can consider.
I think that style of narative story with slowly zoomed and panned pictures was made popular by Ken Burns, the American director and producer and cinematographer of documentary films. Among his most notable productions are The Civil War (1990), Baseball (1994), Jazz (2001), The War (2007), and The National Parks: America's Best Idea (2009).
I saw some parts of them. 'The War' is most notable to me.
I was thinking, people watching game intro cinematics on YouTube and commenting on them there and other forums and linking them is a one of many great ways to promote a game. Of course, the game needs the Intro/opening cimematic.
