Clear Skies 4

Hi there.   After a near ten year hiatus I am finally making the fourth film in the Clear Skies series!

I find asking for funding in this way a difficult thing to do.  The first three films I funded entirely by myself, and this one was slowly heading that way, but after such a positive response from the Clear Skies community, especially at the reveal on the CCP Eve Online Clear Skies stream , I have finally been persuaded that this would be an okay thing to do.

The age, difficulty, and limitations of the Source engine had  dissuaded me from starting any further film projects, but on being introduced to iClone 7 and the quality and potential it offered, I realised I could step the game up once more and produce something worthwhile of the Clear Skies name. 

This GoFundMe is for the costs involved around moving to the iClone platform and all the surrounding plugins and tools to deliver my vision.  I am moving to the  Noitom Perception Neuron motion capture system as well, and there is also a significant outlay for upgrading my PC to deal with the new capabilites and store the very large amounts of video data it's all going to eventually produce.

I am super grateful to anyone who contributes.  It is a humbling experience to see how many people still, after all this time, love the Clear Skies series so being able to produce another is a wonderful opportunity.

As a thank you I shall attempt to get the names/callsigns of anyone who donates into the film in some unobtrusive way, much as I did in Clear Skies 2 and 3 for those who donated Eve Online in-game currency!

More info is on the Facebook Clear Skies group 

Fly safe!
