Welcome to Bionicle: Next Generation, one of the single largest Bionicle projects in existance. With over 300 registered workers - some less active than others - we strive the create the movies we missed, as well as other media.Feel free to critique our progress so far. Constructive criticism is very important to us. (Though trolling on video rants is not constructive and we frown upon it. :P) Also, if you would like to contribute, we are full with most jobs, though we're always looking for help in 3D modeling and animation.StaffLord Jampot - BNG ExecutiveLewa Krom - BNG ExecutiveCherixon - BNG Executive[The rest of the staff is being reshuffled so please wait for further notices on them]More to be added soon

I loved the music piece you guys put out during the downtime. While I still don't have the time to join as an animator, I do have a very powerful computer for rendering if you guys want to make use of it. :D

That should be quite useful.

Actually, we have our own working forum, so BZPower downtime didn't affect us... for the most part.

That's the plan. However, we're going one movie at a time. We don't know when we'll get to that selected movie.

We will likely be re-hosting Blender Academy. :)

Wow MicroSnipe, that theme sounds amazing. However, I have to say it reminds me more of Matoro that foreshadows his sacrifice because it has a lot of deep emotion and sense of fulfilling one's duty. But whoever you feel it should be for go for it. Keep up the good work, you have greatly improved since the last songs you presented to us.

Honestly, I don't know. If we can get somebody to host the academy on a blog, we might be able to do it here.

Phantax is busy with school (and also doesn't use Blender as far as I know), but there may be another person I can ask. I will look into setting up a Blender Academy for BZPower members interested in joining BNG, assuming I can find someone willing. :)

I've probably given my thoughts on the theme before, but I love it. The synths are very well placed, and gives the piece a somewhat nostalgic air, like a callback to MNOLG themes.I must post a theme soon... :sly:

Yes you must. :PI'm nearly done with Makuta's Theme Redux. (I'm calling it Master of Shadows) My new computer makes everything so much easier. I've gotten so far in so little time, it's so much better than the last version so far. I might post a WIP just cause...-Snipe

Update on Blender Academy: Found some good Blender tutorials, but they appear to have a comment system so not sure if I'll be able to post them here. :( Also, on a new promotion, Hapori Boar (aka Rainbow Dash) has been promoted from "Pet Troll" to "Incharge of Relations with Certain Projects." Congrats to HB to having a legitimate job!!! :D

Nice! I like Kopaka's theme a bit better, and this one seemed mixed weird when the trumpets (or whatever brass-ish instrument that was) came in. I think the trumpet sound you're using is too low quality compared to the rest of the instruments.
