The Lounge: Quake II Machinima by Sudden Death Productions
Main design concept – minimum production value, maximum entertainment. Since Sudden Death Productions was formed we have wanted to release films that showed we we’re quality dudes and we’ve always had the aim in the back of our minds to be the best machinima group in town.
All kinds of crazy ass problems have come in our way whenever we came to producing stuff and we ended up having released a very short film which can be considered by some as a map run (Incoming Transmission), and two suspended productions.
With this film though we’ve gone back to the drawing boards and designed it so it would be very fast to make, but very good at the same time. As I have mentioned bare times, one of the problems with the munnity’s film output level right now is that it’s been a long time since a group of ppl got 2gether and made a quick entertaining film(like in the olden dayz, when films were abundant).It’s totally possible that people have forgotten how fun it is to do Q2 films.
This film is expected to remind everyone how it used to be, when the entertainment level was peakin’. I see nuff people talkin’ now about how the few films that are comin’ out are much better quality and shit. – Maybe true, but we would give almost anything to be able to go back to when short films were poppin up all the time-cause at least back then there was actually stuff to watch. Some ppl think the problem is Strange Co’s fault but in truth there wouldn’t be a munnity without them.
Anyways because of this ‘expired’ view we have of Q2 movies we’ve been said to have an old skool style to our production. It took us about 2 months to make this but there were actually only about three to three and a half weeks spent actively working on the film. So here we are… this is the film that will do it for us. This is what we’re all about. SDP Forever. -Doc Nemesis
PS In the beginning of the film you wont know who is talking cause its not lip synched but don’t worry, It’ll get better.

Sudden Death Productions – For Da Love ‘o” Da Women”
Sudden Death Productions has no history other then when it was started in February of 1999. They have no past films, and consist of two crew members, Leo Lucien and Michael Ciancia. They began production of their first and current film, For Da Love ‘o’ Da Women in February of 1999. Now being a solid year in production, the crew has stated that they are positive that their film will leave a huge impact in machinima history.
The movie revolves around a comedic setting. Reworking every line in the script several times to make them more funny and clever, they’re sure of themselves to release the funniest machinima comedy ever. The characters in the story are named after the creators themselves, Leo and Michael. Talking with Leo, we grabbed the storyline info from the film – “Two boys, Leo & Michael are the most popular boys in their school and with this they have every thing they want ie the women. Then a new student joins the college and mysteriously is able to steal the lime light (their popularity with the ladies) from them. Both boys must then fight to earn their fame with the women back, and it proves tricky.”
“It’s an Action\Comedy based in a mixture of Quake world and the real world. Two all time popular boys, Leo and Michael live a more than satisfactory life of friends, laughs, and women. In fact they’re swimming in women. They’re the kinda guys who can get any woman they want (I think that qualifies a for more than a satisfactory life. If u don’t think so your probably gay and should have no interest in this film). But this all becomes paradise lost when there is a mysterious addition to the students of QuakeWorld High who seems to be faring much better with the women than Leo and Michael. This luxurious way of life is at threat for the boys but the consequences of “the new guy’s” actions become graver as they discover he has more sinister plans in mind.”
The storyline sounds like a trip and a winner, so we’re hoping to see a good flick come of this. The movie has an estimated running time of 1 hour and 30 minutes, although this figure may change before the release time. The estimate file size and release date was left uncommented on due to sketchy details in production. Other than what we’ve written, there isn’t much to know about this film. It’s a comedy, it’s got two guys named Leo and Michael, it’s about 1 hour and 30 minutes, and the size and release date are a mystery. The models have either been downloaded from the net, or custom made, some custom animations are expected, but mostly this film is about laughter, so don’t expect special effects. Expect excellent maps and lots of funny lines. ;)
