Well, if GEMA blocks NickelBack videos, I move to germany.

maali: ok I stand corrected, I don't know that well how he looks. Hopefuly in The Evolution of Vision it's not him!

Ahaha! First one singing gasman's song and strumming a guitar wins!

I can confirm. The running particle man is indeed Navis himself captured through kinect and then coding the particle effect over the data.

Next time capture Navis while he's coding the particle effect over the data being captured and enter the eternal loop.

Answering to a topic question: it's spin-off ;)

okkie: clearly walking around with a drum on your back is much more impressive than a "universe full of stars" or smth. ;)

i think smash can ask something to Ubisoft for the intro of the crew :)

rather, i think smash was also inspired by the same lamborghini aventador advertisement as those people from ubisoft ;)

there are shitloads of demoish videos for lamborghini ads... e.g. http://vimeo.com/73438116 is quite nice too... starts off a bit conspiracy, ends up fairlighty :)

Maali: AFAIK the inspiration for that demo didn't come from any of those, which makes them interesting to see in retrospect. :)

havoc: you might know someone in the scene who likes particles and who works with bands' videos. :)

Just a short update on this (for now, please consider that I cannot give all the details in public). After a very stressful 8 weeks, there has been very little progress. The helpful guy that was around (in this thread) no longer works for the company. The representation now has different ideas about what is fair and doable. Lets put it this way:

I go to amusic's house. He is selling a car. "Hey amusic nice car, can I take it for a testdrive around the block?" - sure!

I then proceed to drive his car around the world for 2 months, use it as a taxi, add boyracer decals and tacky in-car entairtainment system.
I return the car to amusic and say: "sorry pal, keep your car now, I cant buy it- there was never a budget for it after all".

So now, I will consider all options, with the most probable one being going public by end of month earliest- We are nice guys but not idiots...

Very good, Navis. I think it's safe to say that a large part of the demoscene supports you.
Hopefully we can make an example out of this (unlike Timbaland... dude needs to get sued hard).

Navis, going public is a good choice.

They have so little faith in Moroder's revival they don't want to put in any cost for the video? Lol

It's not lol for navis though, hope it gets sorted man!

Dammit, always the same thing.

If they do not play fair, crush them.

We will support you.

Was that the same guy who you made the initial agreement / contract / whatever with?
added on the 2015-01-10 12:06:25 by Gargaj Gargaj
No. that original guy has never contacted us directly again. The guy on this thread on pouet disappeared without trace about a month ago (I had to call their offices in US to find out, after my emails were ignored). This was the agency, not Sony Sweden- who, so far, have been rather quiet but , at least, seem to have a mild interest in resolving the situation.

Looks like some people only get it the hard way =P

never seen that one before but if anything it looks like inspiration for frameranger (some years earlier) :)

It wouldnt surprise me if they already made a calculation if going public on Navis' side would really harm them: If it doesnt spark enough interest and no one cares, it will just vanish unnoticed so the profit is still secured for them.

Their point of view is probably very simple: "Sue us, if you dare, or go fuck yourself."

The core motivation for their actions is not truth or justice, it's protection of their interests. As long as nothing happens that is REALLY going to hurt their interests, they are going to do it - even if it's unjustified or untruthfull.
