© 2005-2006 the Virtual Thunderbirds, LLC. All rights reserved.

The Virtual Thunderbirds, LLC is a registered trademark in entertainment and media production, replicating the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds. Part of this business organization is our demo team or squad; an elite group of online pilots using the best in home flight simulation hardware and software to fly as realistically as possible via internet networks, flying the same way as the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds.

This encompasses real world communication protocol used by the Thunderbirds, their maneuver parameters and procedures as well as the atmosphere found in the Thunderbird alumni and their present members. We pride ourselves in our teamwork and work ethic inherited in their spirit and strive to achieve excellence in every aspect of our business, whether it is in the virtual skies or in other ways. The demo team, our main feature and core of this organization, consists of a squad of pilots working together in unison and becoming an extremely cohesive group. Each member spends large amounts of his or her free time dedicated to the endless amounts of hard work necessary within the squad to be able to perform at such high level. While the flying is our mainstay and what we are best known for, it is only part of a bigger picture. Many of the pilots selected for the demo team are real world aviators with thousands of hours of jet experience, both military and civilian; however, this is not a requirement to one day be part of the Virtual Thunderbirds and its demo team. We encourage you to tryout for future openings.

Practice, persistence, patience and perfection are words we live by as we cross into the blue in pixels in these beautiful red, white and blue F-16's.

Just wanted to show you guys (at least those of you who are familiar with Sony Vegas) the complexity of the time-grid used in the making of "Smoke On". This screenshot was taken back in early August and roughly covers the first 25 minutes of the movie (half the length of the movie). Every single clip also had its Special FX (effects) and camera panning, cropping and more created individually clip-by-clip. Although none of that can be seen here in view, this picture shows the grand scope of the workspace used during production...

...this was three months prior to release and shows only half of the movie, but it still looks quite "messy". Many additional FX were added late (i.e. more congested workspace than seen here), but it gives you an idea of what the time-grid in Sony Vegas looked like at a point in time during the making of the movie. The grid got a lot more crowded towards the end (and twice as long as seen here)!

Bonus FYI: More than 160GB of frap footage was used in the making of the movie!

Voila!

Most of the sound editing was completed the last weeks before release, this screenshot was taken several months before completion.
