Chapter 3 is now showing!! BOOYAKA!

Well everyone, Chapter 3 is now released to the public. We’ve opened it up for view on the website, Vimeo and on our Youtube channel. We want to give out a big THANK-YOU shout to all our current and new members on the website.

In Chapter 3, we continue with the Heavy Transport Assault Shuttle, Niner-818-Zulu, on emergency recall from the surface of Norca II. In this third part of the series, we return to the Relentless with the Cold Climate Trooper Division, and meet the crew of the Imperial drop-ship along with the pilots of the mechanized armored assault vehicles as well as the recon teams who scout their patrols.

Hey all IMPS fans!

A quick update to let you know that the Blacksheep team has pushed hard in the last few days of this month and completed Chapter 3! We will be releasing some images here shortly in the next couple days! We want to thanks Justin and Eric for really pushing hard in those final 14-15 hour days to wrap up all the music, sound and finalization of the chapter. This last weekend, a few of us met up to review and render out the teaser and the final.

We have been updating the site to get it ready for the chapter images and release! In the next few days, Chapter 3 page will open up with some images and notes. All current and new members of the site will have early access before the public. So, if you’re not a member and want to jump on ship before it leaves port, head on over to the PX to enlist! We’re running a huge discount on Premium Membership Subscriptions right now, so grab it before it’s over!

Thank you, to all our fans and supporters over the years. We know it’s been a long wait and we’re very excited to launch Chapter 3. The wait is almost over!

Pushing Chapter 3 into the final edit stages and getting ready to hand over the cut for music and sound. VFX has been working through Chapters 4 and 5. In the meantime, here are some works in progress to check out.

We’re trying to wrap up the rough-edit for Chapter 3 and there are a few composite shots that are taking some time to put together. Albeit a time killer, Chapter 3 is moving along well and looking good. Recently, Blacksheep Productions gained 3 new modelers and 3 graphic artists along with a new VFX guy! Greatly needed, we welcome them aboard to help push things along.

The editing team is waiting on those last few composite shots before we can finalize a cut and send it off for V.O., music, sound and a final mix. Also, Chapter 3 is related to Chapters 4-7 so part of the time consumption is getting those parts done to push off Chapter 3. Again, we are still unable to give out a finalization date but we’re getting it put together piece by piece.

We’ve also been working on the remaining chapters and have finished about 70% of Chapter 4 armors and builds.

Here are a few images for some practicals for upcoming chapters along with some face-plate/helmet builds.
Thanks to everyone for your support.

IMPS Model Build

“You are given the options of Fast, Good and Cheap, and told to pick any two.”

At the very beginning of this project we never truly knew it would be such an extensive, long term commitment. We do, however, intrinsically believe we can accomplish such a massive project but not as fast as everyone would like. We chose the option of Good and Cheap and we’re doing the best possible with the resources and time we can scavenge or borrow. Hence, this project does take its sweet time.

We do want to thank everyone who is patiently waiting and are still at our sides anticipating the next chapter. We’re all still aboard the Relentless cruising along.

As of right now all the final FX shots are in the editors hands and are placing them into the final cut for Chapter 3. They can now put together the last 20% or so of the shots. The rest of the team has moved on to chapters four and five.

As for a new update pic, we’ll let you take a guess at what these are. The top two images are related and the bottom two are related in terms of model parts. Both models do have something to do with one another.
