    Oh wow! That came unexpected. Awesome job guys. Loved the music (was pleased to see it was from Tobias! :) )

    I’ve been looking forward to the movie for some time now. This is definitely helping the good old hype-meter!

    So you guys made several of these promos? Can I say ‘Sweet!’? :D

    Yes…yes you can :D

    Beautiful piece

    Alternating lines of italics are “in,” apparently.

    The creation, as always, is awesome. I’d rather watch your work than the movie (for several reasons, not all of them relevant). And, yes, I recognized many of the sound effects. And, yes, I felt the tobias-ness of the music.

    Now, if I interpreted this correctly, then you folks even figured out how to do the animation so that all those jittering problems from Broken Saints Flash weren’t any sort of issue. (Yes, I was watching for problems on the opening fade-walking. There didn’t seem to be any.) Shall I congratulate you on your technical mastery, or were those old problems no longer relevant to what technology you’re using now?

    No more Flash – Ian (and his workmate Caleb) are down with ‘the Shake’ :)

    woah! saintly crew back to its best!

    I must admit I was kinda upset the whole film isn’t like that it would be cool!

    hopefully BS will be on the big screen soon…*nudge nudge wink wink*

    keep up the excellent work. peace and love

  8. Awesome work guys. I’m excited to see what else you have been working on!

  9. Eric says:

    Wow! I stumbled upon this at Apple’s site and the whole time I am watching it I’m thinking. Crap, Broken Saints has been ripped off by some Hollywood blow hards. Then I saw the credits and happiness came into my life again. It’s good to see you guys at work again.

    AT LAST new stuff YAY i love it……. and its very cool looking and creepy all what i was hopeing

  11. Rexfelum says:

    Should I ask what “the Shake” is, or will it only lead to suffering?

    And I was actually gonna ask if we should recognize Anne Schaefer from any previous work. I’m fairly certain I didn’t see the name on earlier songs.

    Shake is the best thing ever.

    hollywood-grade compositing

  13. tobias says:

    Rex… you’re right – Anne is an old friend, or at least an old friend of old friends, and we’ve played a little music together here and there, but she hasn’t been featured in anything in the Saintsiverse up to now. But she’s a great singer (and musician and songwriter) and since she wouldn’t take any money for the track I thought I’d give her a plug as more people should hear her stuff.

    And yes, Shake is mindblowing. If you can imagine it you can do it. Tres cool.

  14. Rexfelum says:

    Well, well, well. Shake, it appears, is a $500 program that basically made The Lord of the Rings into movies.

    Can I have some?

    –Rexfelum

  15. Susan (FA) says:

    A little late, but. Totally awesome. Freddie even dug it. And by the way, Shake is SO EASY! LOOOVE IT!

  16. Chapulin says:

    Totally impressed. =) Seriously cant wait to see more from you guys, and how you guys use these newly acquired toys. Round of applause.

  17. Saggio l'uno says:

    This is great. I am looking forward to more.

  18. Combeferre says:

    I happened upon this randomly in Apple’s Trailers website. As I watched I thought, “Huh, this looks like Broken Saints. A lot like Broken Saints.” Then I saw all the familiar names in the credits and thought, “Holy shit! It is! They made it!”

    Great work and congratulations, guys!

  19. neelo says:
