Hello XJ,

the next interviewee is Country: Czech Republic blackelf2002, a moviemaker known especially for his outstanding work on fu_extreme documentary. Recently, he edited few demos, that have been saved for the next release. The clips we present to you exclusively before the release itself are also made by the today's star. He stated that he learned a lot while editing my demos and it is my personal pleasure to have my demos immortalized this way. At his 16 years old, this guy shows his talents and drive to improve himself in graphic-related stuff and I am sure he couldn't have any better start than that. Enjoy the interview with Country: Czech Republic blackelf2002 in extended newspost!

Let us present the mentioned clips of which two are cut versions due to countless fails. Stay tuned for the upcoming release!



Map: kzblt_dx_blueshadow2

Country: Czech Republic blackelf2002: Working with this demo was really annoying, some the fails were really difficult to cut out. The weapon animation was different every time + on lot of jumps the movement was really different. But on some places, the movement was almost the same and you can barely notice a cut there. On time 1:10, I can't almost see it even if I focus.

Country: Czech Republic shooting-star CS 1.6 Recordholder: As you might have noticed, this map has been remade. The cause of it was a part of the map that was simply impossible to do with a slightest fps drop. The remake resulted in even harder blockpart, that required a serious effort to complete. You cannot imagine my surprise when I was caught not knowing the rest of the map after completing this blockpart.




Map: kzblt_dx_mercy

Country: Czech Republic blackelf2002: This one was more fun working on. The map was more interesting for me, and there were less cuts needed. Also on this one, the cuts were so much easier to do. The movement was insanely consistent in this demo.

Country: Czech Republic shooting-star CS 1.6 Recordholder: I enjoyed recording this map even though it has some pretty nasty jumps. While on the last block, my keyboard stalled and I had to complete two blockparts repeatedly. After making that happen, I somehow did the last block almost first try. This was a huge luck and as a result, I spent on this map less time than expected.



Map: kkz_texture

Country: Czech Republic blackelf2002: This is what I consider to be my most succesfull work. There is plenty of reasons: You can see your own shadow, and reflections, I added an object that was never located on this map, and replaced the original, and also the titles. I was aiming for a futuristic look, and I think i succeeded.

Country: Czech Republic shooting-star CS 1.6 Recordholder: Recording kkz_texture was always my kreedz goal. I never managed to get consistent on either the window part or the drop shortcut. Now I finally broke the skill requirement and managed to get this WR even with a shortcut discovered years ago and proven "possible in a run" by patchouli on a public server.

  • Oh man, while I was impressed by all runs (ss always delivers) and edit in first two movies (cut versions for sure are not that easy and I can see them being time consuming, also they're just great, well edited runmovies), third movie blew my mind. Light, shadows (!), textures and all those details mentioned and not mentioned above, absofuckinglutely great. Keep up the good work! Also I really respect that sentence "The most time consuming thing is choosing the correct song.". While the whole movie look, effects and general visual impression depends on moviemaker and how he chooses to show his ideas, music is the core. Core that usually has to be chosen wisely and slowly (but sometimes impulsively!), especially if we are talking about moviemaker putting his heart into his work. If it's something done this way, you can feel it. You can feel that you're creating something that has part of you in it. You're pushing it into right direction and I hope to see more edits of yours. GJ!

  • I admit, the song choice could be better. In original there were different song. But the video was blocked on youtube, so I had to come up with something new quickly.

  • korban got sick skills but to be fair, I don't think having the sickest skills moviemaking wise makes us the better moviemaker, but thats me, as an "old" guy around and familiar with moviemaker, I would take nubz edit on nikitich last stand as one of the best kreedz edits and moviemaking wise it is as simple as it is, soft colors, simple transitions, some pretty campaths, a common font for text and a beautiful song made what "nikitich last stand" is probably one of the best edits by far, at least, for me, same goes for cloudy night, brian the movie 2, chinese art and many, many others, edits that were as simple as they could be and they were that good exactly for the emotions they brought to the skin, I don't want to look either rude or jealous, but I'd take haruju, nubz or jusuuh skills all day other than any skilled dubstep/3D animation moviemaker, guess I am just a fan from the basics. Good job everyone involved, don't give up, korban is great and if so korban is an inspiration, look aswell to icevip, he is next level as well.

    BTW, I am by no means saying korban doesn't make any feels come to the skin, he is by far one of the best around, flow and skills, to be fair, only him and Icevip can attract me to these "overedited" with 3D, AAE effects, no others can, as soon as I see too much shit of AAE or C4D, I just turn the video off, so yes, korban is great, don't take my words wrong.

  • kkz jump master :D good fvcking job, buddy!
    nice wr's

User Avatar
  • I haven't really enjoyed your previous clips blackelf, I feel like they've lacked a sense of style and flow. But god damn what an improvement for these clips, you nailed it on that kkz_texture video. Smooth effects combined with a song that really fits the run and the map, an absolute pleasure to watch. Looking forward to see what you'll be able to do in the future!

    And shooting-star without a doubt one of the greatest if not the greatest kz player of all time. Great work both of you.

  • Just beautiful! The shadow from ss on texture is just mindblowing.

    Could you upload the raw file and maybe without the music? I really want to keep that video.

Default XJ Avatar
  • You mean C4D output?

Default XJ Avatar
  • No no, just a mp4 or avi. Anything pure but a Youtube rip. And possibly without music :D
