    this has nothing to do with mass effect directly, although its possible it was an inspiration (ive never played). This is a student made film from ArtFX schools. It`s a short, and from what I have found there is nothing else planned to follow up on it. too bad.

    Can somebody subtitle it? I got unit 55 and something about transferring something...but that`s it. Otherwise, I was hooked. I`m guessing the guy who made it is hoping some studio exec would be hooked too. Here`s hoping.

    No, this isn`t a Mass Effect 3 promo, however as cobra said, I don`t doubt that it was an inspiration. The little "Autopilot" button in particular looked very similar to something out of Mass Effect. I also saw similarities with Halo in certain camera shots, as well as Dead Space in the protagonist`s general design.

    Can we stop calling stuff done with computer animation "3D" please? It`s not 3D, it`s 2D, you`re watching it on a 2D screen, it`s not holographic, it`s not even simulating 3D like movies and some tv`s. Call it "CG" or "computer animation" or whatever, just not 3D. It just gives the impression of 3D. Ok.

    The quality of the `human` motion on this is some of the best I`ve seen.

    BTW phoneybone, it`s 3D, the data stored for the CG refers to 3 dimensions, it`s just being projected onto a 2D plane for a standard screen.

    It was *very* much influenced by BSG. The handheld camera look, quick zooms, the lighting, even the ship designs.

    Still... better than I could do.
