Simply click on the question to go to the answer.
A: We are a machinima production group that uses the Halo games to produce our movies. Although only a few people are active at times, we still consider ourselves a team.
A: Hence our name, we mainly create action movies. However, we also have a number of comedy films. We used to create a short update video every few months to let our fans and the community know about our doing, but have dropped off doing that.
A: You can learn all about our past on the About Page.
A: We don't accept new members unless they have a particularly good history of working with us or we specifically ask someone to join. In the past, we had a recruiting and application process, but that never worked out very well. Since we do not collaborate as a group anymore, membership does not mean much. You are free to help out with filming whenever possible.
A: Absolutely. You can help out whenever we need more actors or extras (especially in action movies), and you can continue helping if you are cooperative during filming sessions. Meaning, follow directions, talk only when needed, and don't disrupt the filming by destroying the set or killing actors.
We are also in need of talented voice actors.
A: No, because QuickTactical works only on his own projects. In the past, a few members wrote or directed their own projects while QT filmed them, but that is no longer the case.
A: Feel free to send a friend request to anyone here at Epic Films if you wish to help out or just play together. However, QuickTactical, who receives several a week, asks that you include a message so it's more likely you'll be accepted. Being inactive or not helping with movies when extra actors are asked for is the fastest way to be removed.
A: For every movie up to Sandwar, QuickTactical filmed with a DVC 90 Capture Card, which cost about $80. Editing was done with Windows Movie Maker, with support from Audacity and Vegas 6.0.
Currently, capturing is done with a DVC 100 and Pinnacle Studio 12, and editing is done with Adobe Premiere CS4.
