Finally, after being announced on November the 11th, 2006 by SNP, by means of a Trailer release, First Contact is finally upon us! Featuring frags from the entire community (initially being a SNP-only movie, SNP decided to make a community movie out of it, with the help from BRUNS). I consider this movie a tribute to Warsow 0.21, it is one of those fragmovies that really makes you want to play and enjoy the game, and which makes you realize why you do!
The editting, use of the (minimally available) cameras really come together great, and accompanied by the theatrical soundtrack, this is a movie not to forget! The quality of the frags, quality of editting, synching and the visual effects are very good, and they make Warsow 0.2 look better then it ever has. The high quality of the compression with the crazy color effects make this movie a visual trip!
Deep into that Darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before;
Still the silence was unbroken, "Is it over?" feebly I'd spoken
When the Blackness then awoken and ghastly embers shot afore.
"Not till shrieking Lacrimosa's bold and resolute encore",
Quoth the Darkness, "...Not before!"
In the beginning, First Contact was intended to be the title of my own personal frag movie. After the trailer's release a lot of people seemed to enjoy it and the idea of a community frag movie popped up. And thus First Contact evolved and became something far bigger than a noob's personal frag gallery. It now stands for warsow's first attempt at showing it's community and their frags to the world.
First Contact is our first community frag movie. Enjoy it!
