Thank you very much!
Anyone notice, my personal twist with the artwork slowly squeezing down to letterbox. Did that just sound pompous?
I wish the start was cleaner, but thats the way the artwork was. I also want to make a version POV of everyone not Coalition.
I've just started writing the plot line for a script. It's just for me but if the other script writers can't get it together I've got a great idea that leaves both sides open so not to come off bias.
And if your guessing roughly 120 pics at the start.

Hey DerbyJack,

I loved the "unofficial" Rifts® Movie Trailer. I needed a pick me up today and it did the trick. I watched it three times. I had my guys watch it. I recommend it to Rifts® fans everywhere.

Of course, the end is what makes it. :-D I think it sums up the feelings of ALL of us. Nice. Funny. Thanks for putting a smile on my face.

Ah, now if only Hollywood would listen.

Have a great weekend and keep that imagination burning bright.

Sincerely,
Kevin Siembieda

I fear to say that the movie (If it is ever made) will never be that epic.

Good work, but now you've set the bar, and it needs to be raised by the movie :P

I have been working on a trailer as well, but since I've already gotten a nasty gram from the corprate dogs I stopped working on it and haven't posed it up online.

if you've read the first book my tailer starts off with some BSG overviews of the world then nukes, then a CGI shot of old Detriot. The battle setup with the GB and the CS was shot and edited.

Deja vu?

Sci-fi is not the right word to describe RIFTS. I'm not sure what better word there is to describe it, considering that the foundation of the entire game is the combination of multiple genres into one setting. But I know that you don't have dragons and wizards in a sci-fi movie. And Bruckheimer has made movies like Pirates of the Caribbean and now Prince of Persia. And if there was only one word to describe those movies, it would be "epic."

Did you see how bad Deja Vu failed? And I would compare his movies to Fantasy, before I would call them SCIFI.

Epic is not a word I would use either... James Cameron... now that is EPIC!

Pretty much but it was really a trailer for KS to take a look at, but got a C&D email.

I posted mine and It worked out.
Were you pouring money into it? Where was your breach of legalities?

Yours was fan based, mine was based on making a movie myself and pitching it.
Pouring money, no. But it was about a grand to make the trailer.

You just described your problem right there 'Making the movie and pitching it'. You pitch first, sort out licensing and THEN you make it. They do books differently, but for things like games and movies, there's a completely different way of doing things legally.

Regardless I've sold all my books and wiped my hands. I wish everyone good luck in ever seeing a rifts movie worth a damn.

TBH If I decide to make something LIKE rifts I think you will enjoy it even more. Look for the trailer of Rifts Earth coming soon!

Sweet Trailor. I don't play Rifts myself. The Games always ended in Player arguments, but I'd see a movie.

Over 20 book images / A slew of TV clips / Even more Movie clips / A soundtrack / and video game snippets...
= Awesome

That collection and editing is tight. Well done mate!

You captured the intensity and the diversity of what a Rifts world is! I'm not sure a pro could even offer that much accurate content in one movie alone.

1. I liked it. Good Job!
2. The intro was a bit long, and I nearly turned it off when all the artwork started flipping past, thinking that THAT was the extent of the trailer.
3. The whole thing was a bit too long. Less is often more in sales and advertising.

You must have seen my older one. That was way to long. I've since made a faster version with a ton more new material. Please check it out at:

I like the music choice better in this version. Good clips in both, a few repeats a lot not.

I wish the movie would happen already. :(

Hey Jack, I've watched both trailers, love both of them! I see a lot of stuff I recognize, but a lot of stuff I don't. Would you be willing to send me a list of your source material of games and movies in PM? I wanna expand my collection of stuff to watch. :D

Awesome awesome work. Both trailers are favorited, and given the thumbs up.

Tomorrow is a mystery,
But today is a gift.
That's why it is called "the present".
One word; AWESOME!! AMAZING!! MIND-BLOWING!! FANTASTIC!! INCREDIBLE!! HEART-STOPPING!! TREMENDOUS!!

Okay that was more than one word, so choose whichever one you want! All of them and more apply! I only hope the movie actually is as good as these can make it out to be!

Ok sorry a section of life just pasted me by. Yes, I am Derby Jack. I had to change my ID because I lost some of my emails when I closed one of my websites and I forgot which emails are attached to them. Long story ...
121 pieces of artwork for the beginning
2012
Dawn of the Dead (remake)
Black Hawk Down
Panic Attack (Youtube short film)
Diablo 3 (VG)
HellBoy
Prince Of Darkness
Brotherhood of the Wolf (French)
Feast
Pan's Labyrinth (Spanish)
Mass Effect 2 (VG)
Army of Two (VG)
Worst Case Scenario (Promo short/ Army of Frankenstein)
B-13 2 (or District 13 Ultimatum)
Halo 3 ODST (Video game trailer/ Short)
Scary Movie 4
Halo 3 Landfall (Live action)
Reign of Fire
The Cell
Gears of War 2 and 3 (VG)
Bronson
Starcraft 2 (VG)
The One
District 9
MechWarrior 5 (VG)
Wolf Hound (Russia)
Dante's Inferno (VG)
Day Watch (Russia / sequel to Night Watch)
Warhammer 40K Dawn of War (VG)
Warlords (China)
Underworld 1 and 2
Blade 1
the Many Deaths of Ian Stone
The Fall
The Forbidden Kingdom
MotorStorm Pacific Rift
This is just from the first trailer
And of course as it turns out I do not have a list for the second trailer. Even though a lot of the clips came from some of the same Movies and games but with a splash of Sucker Punch, Neill Blomkamp's Yellow, The Force Unleashed 2, a Star Wars video game, halo and some call of duty thrown in for good measure. I hope this helps. But.... there are too many great movie no one even knows. Like the Nightwatch series, Nemesis opening gun fight, Boondock Saints ("We should get some rope.") Great line.

WOAH...........No words to describe how awesome is your work.
Only one thing to take care of about it and is that if you use some Harmony Gold pictures from Robotech and they'll notice,you will be in trouble because they looks like vampires avids of blood.
Anyway,Excellent work!!!

Derby there was nothing wrong with the first trailer. It is my favorite of the two, and I can honestly say my world is little bit brighter for having watched them. Thank you sir. Thankyou!

the trailer was awesome, but my BIG question is has hollywood been trying to option RIFTS for a feature film? And I hope it doesn't become a movie on the sheer point of how horribly they seem to mutilate R.P.G. adaptations. Case in point, The Dungeons & Dragons films
as wonderful of an idea it would be a soul crushing defeat for all the people that comprise the Palladium family developers and players alike. I know this may be a bittersweet concept for many, the idea of RIFTS being optioned as a film is awesome, while the end result
would kill the universe we all love.


sorry if I may have Offended,

I can't tell if you're serious or not, so I will answer seriously just in case (since it looks like you're fairly new here).

There is an entire forum about the Rifts Movie, it's the top on the Board Index page. It's been optioned two or three times, it's been stalled for a long time and I have little real hope of it happening because Hollywood is too busy rebooting every franchise that ever made a nickel and making movies from every comic book they can get the rights to.

While I understand your fears, any intellectual property optioned for a movie could turn out awesome or horrible depending on a number of factors, but usually the key factors tend to be: script, director, budget, cast, studio meddling.

If they get a great script and great director, chances are great cast won't be hard to sign on. It was optioned by Jerry Bruckheimer studios which has turned out some great action flicks and has a good rep in Hollywood. So that is positive. I'm guessing the big hold up is script and for Bruckheimer studios to have a "slot" in the budget open up to greenlight it and start getting the director and cast together.

But if you want details, and more up to date than I am since I haven't been following it closely due to lack of time (kids, work, etc), go check out the forum.

thanks LostOne, yes I was serious, but no worries on that. I do appreciate your input, although I would like to see someone like Ridley Scott in the director's chair on a good number of reasons besides the big facts that every one knows like his work with Alien, Legend, Blade runner. I'm also not trying make it seem like Bruckheimer couldn't do it. this is more of a personal preference for directing styles, but overall i would just love to see a live action Glitter Boy, think we all would though. I also have faith that Siembieda will go in the direction he feels he and Rifts need to in the matter of Hollywood. Witch I think will require an almost immaculate screen play, director and cast(Let's not get into this topic.) So we can all rest assured
that when we see a Rifts feature film we will know the stars have aligned and Kevin Siembieda approved. So until that day we can dream.
