Along with these 3 CD's I will bundle the making of Video (details below). Plus, exclusive to this offer, I will include an additional video (PAL VHS or MPEG CD) of my 45 min presentaion about Pump-Action from this years Computer Arts Live in the UK and as if that was not enough you will get a signed postcard aswell :-)

3 CD's + The Pump/Joust Video + The CA Live video - $ 95 or £ 59 - See the Full CD File List
3 CD's only - $ 75 or £ 45

Pump-Action released on VHS Video



The Making of - web preview

Pump-Action + The Joust - including the making of...
(running time - 53 mins)

...is a double A side video if that is possible. As Captain 3D has teamed up with Happy Ship, the makers of The Joust to produce this 53 minute VHS presentation.

On the tape you can see both films, full screen, full length. But almost better than that we have included 33 minutes of artist interviews fully illustrated with many behind the scenes clips, sketches, screen shots and techniques as we talk through each project from the original concepts to final rendering.

For those who like to see the nuts and bolts of a project it should be of great interest or for those who just want a quality copy of both films then it is perfect for that too.
