Devastating News

There's no easy way to say this, but unfortunately this project is dead.  :(

My laptop had a catastrophic hard disk failure last week and I lost all of the files for this project -- the raw video, the edited video, the 3D models, the recorded audio, the music, EVERYTHING!

Although I perform weekly backups, I didn't include these files in my backups simply because there was too much data.  I didn't have enough space on my backup hard drive to include these files.  Of course, in retrospect, it would have been well worth the money to invest a couple hundred bucks in a huge backup drive.  But hindsight being 20/20, that bad decision resulted in the loss of gigs of data representing thousands of hours of hard work.

Maybe if I'm lucky I'll stumble across a copy of the animatic buried somewhere and upload that so at least we have something to show for our efforts.  Otherwise, this blog is the only record we have of all of that hard work.
