The Story of the Remake
This is a thanks to all the great people that have helped me online
The remake wouldn’t been realized without these extraordinary nice people.
Most credit goes to:
Johnny was the first person who gave his opinion on the first video. He recommended me to stop producing new videos and focus on creating a better looking 3D Environment.
He pointed me to the We Suck Less forum, which is a help forum for the compositing software Fusion. And he tipped me to contact a guy called Vito La Manna.
Being the leading tutorial creator for Fusion, Vito turned out to be the ideal man to help me dive deeper into Fusion and the world of visual Art. He took me by the hand, answered hundreds of my emails and helped me to create the new look of Zupa. Due to the lack of Global Illumination in Compositing software Vito convinced me to create the Lighting and shading of my 3D environment in a 3D program, before importing it into Fusion. This turned out to be a key element in the achieved look of the 3D Forest environment.
Through a post on the We Suck Less Forum I ran into Dunn Lewis. Dunn, Johnny and Vito taught me everything about creating a professional workflow and broadcast level compositing in Fusion. Dunn also advised and assisted me with the design and creation of the Intro from the Zupa episodes. And he created the successful and funny Zupa Promo trailer. During these 3 years of substantial contact and support online I became very good friends with all 3 of them!
A special thanks goes to Wolfgang Nilz from www.free-d.at he created the grass meadow and 2 trees for the 3D environment.
And then there are all the people from wesuckless (fusion forum) For more than 3 years I have been dropping questions like bombs on that forum and always there were people willing to help me with my problems.
