Wow you said you'll be "harsh beans" but you came off more like you're being a Douche-McBlowhard. No offense man, but you should also look at the dates on those videos 2008 and they were all taken via a movie feature on a small digital camera. Of course they look like sh*.
Aside from that I can appreciate your criticism. You're right things take a lot of time and that's why the podcast that you're so quickly to dismiss is currently in preproduction and will be for no less than three months. Right now I am just learning what I should expect to pay - emphasis on pay - actual sculpting artists for 3D renders, casts, and other detail work.
I can respect that 405th gets a lot of scammers and recasters who lie, cheat, steal, and generally suck the life out of the community. I am not one of those and if it wasn't for the fact that the majority of the forum has been accepting of my being here and some of the awesome people and builders I've met so far I'd probably let you and the rest of the bitter few on this board run me off.
I'm a cosmetology student working on getting myself into make-up arts and effects. I'm not there yet and I know it. I certainly don't need someone thinking they're doing me a favor by ranting and raving at me on a forum about how I am not.
