Smile Speed Factor 2

Hey everyone!

If you remember, there were some Speed Animation challenges held here at Threedy, waaay back in 2006. I participated in a few, and won one with Speed Factor, done in four days (LINK HERE) I failed an exam at college cause I worked on this instead of studying

Now, four years later, I've done a sequel to it, very originally named Speed Factor 2. I worked for three weeks on this one, and here it is. It's for another contest, held on a local forum. The deadline was extremely tight and I would have wanted to do much more with this, but three weeks is three weeks either way.

View Speed Factor 2 on Youtube

Feedback is appreciated! Enjoy and drive safely!

Well done Chris, really great job, and a long time coming well deserved golden eye award for you! Overall I thought it was a great job with .16 - .19 a little weak compared to the rest, closer in on the vehicles would have helped, I especially liked the next shots of the pilot, lights and exhaust though.

Great work Freespace!
I remember well Speed Factor, and from time to time, I am watching it over and over again.

My only objection on this is that you loose focus on the race itself. Mostly of animation is focused on presenting drivers with narrator voice, long intros and such, and less for the actual race. I assume that the deadline was against you, and you didn't have the time to do everything you've planned.

And... this is just me... (my personal taste)... but I kinda like more camera movements in the Speed Factor 1. You've got then some crazy shots.

Wow, very cool man.

Just wondering, how did you create the hud overlay where the drivers interact with?

And...speed...I assume you refer to the party drugs the whole time?

It's awesome man!
I think the hovercraft's could have looked cooler. They feel too simple plus the narrow design makes it look like they can tip over very easily.

Also the monologue sounds pretty random. It's like you took a 'standard awesome epic monologue' and replaced the keyword with 'speed', if you know what I mean.

But again this is awesome man!
