eoLithic - 3 year anniversary

#1 - 10. Oct 2006 16:24
eoLithic
by Zaknafein



The clan who everyone remembers, who took the world (and not just Oslo) by storm, defeating everyone in their path and rightfully making their mark in the counter-strike history. eoLithic and their achievements no doubt represent the peak of the Norwegian counter-strike scene, and when the news was delivered about the clan disbanding, a movie had to be made to honor them.

And here it is, the eoLithic movie, later dubbed eoLithic Tribute by some. It shows alot of highlights from eoLithic's career, including frags, LAN camera footage, and teamwork. All put together with simple yet very satisfactory editing and a capturing soundtrack to underline the atmosphere in the movie, which through the years have created strong emotions through a crowd of fans.

Today, on the 10th of October 2006, it is exactly 3 years since the movie was released.
For the occasion, Zaknafein has done some massive research to build a complete profile for the movie, with lots of facts and statistics that all have been verified (no assumptions allowed). Let's enjoy it one more time, in memory of eoLithic!

"Probably the most emotional movie out there" - Xenoq
"Nothing more to say than: Nice!" - Luke
"The first benchmark video for content, frags and a template for the clan videos that would follow it" - Reflex
"eoLithic definitely ranks among the biggest and best esports films" - TFG
"Wow! That wasn't a good movie...it was a f***ing nice movie!" - Hesesses
"Never have I enjoyed a movie so much" - Pava

Quotes:
"Nice movie. I appreciate you spending so much time on such a movie" - Damien
"the movie just had what many movies nowadays lack of: a bright atmosphere." - cRZYFST
"the best CS gaming movie out there. Pure class" - simonb
"The movie is cool. So coooooool" - kaLa
"Goob job with the movie. How more lovely can it get?" - Poirier
"Amazingly good" - Phezzo
"I loved watching this movie, and find myself watching it over and over all the time" - Gamers.nu
"Some people have even said they cried at the end" - Esports Entertainment Association

Trivia:
-The movie has been dubbed "eoLithic Tribute" after it's release, because the ex-managers of eoLithic decided they didn't want the movie after all only days before the release. The name was suggested by SoGamed.
-The footage from Mindtrek in the end was uploaded specifically for Zaknafein after conversing with the leader of the LAN.
-The song "Bombshell" was also featured in the movie "Zex @ ESWC", which was released only 6 hours before "eoLithic". It was a coincidence.
-Zaknafein's cat appears 6 times in the movie, hidden.

RIP eoLithic. We will never forget you!

PS: I love all of you!
-Zaknafein

You have no idea how many people I had to dig up, mail, ask for download statistics, ask for old reviews now removed from the site, and stuff like that to make all those statistics.
It took a long while, and if it weren't for several archive records, lot would have been lost.
But it was totally worth it, nice to create a complete picture of the movie :) And nice to have a documented download number and not some estimated number that is no where near the truth anyway.

Love you too pava :D and this site!
And PK! And Natalie Portman!

<3

of course it doesn't SOUND much, because you have met or read about dozens of other people who claim their movie has hundreds of thousands of downloads, or perhaps even millions. But these are just assumptions, they have no or almost no evidence to back it up.

These figures have been calculated through confirmed and documented sites ONLY! And this excludes a long list of sites who never answered back and never had any stastics.

Could the total amount of downloads be maybe 1 million? Yes, it could be!
Can I prove it? No!

;)

Still, I never cared about downloads. What I care about is that I am happy with the movie and thus content with myself :)

haha it wasn't meant to offend you :)

I just said (as you realized) that it doesn't SOUND much, but it is quite much. Alot more than I've gotten on all my movies so I'm not complaining, I was just saying.. =)

Awesome movie I think, one of the first cs-movies I saw.
Great music and nice frags, even though u can see that the players weren't as good as they are today at that time!

Pretty cool intro with the text that tell us a bit about the clan. U have to have in u'r mind that there were some years (3) ago it was made, and it can look pretty simple and with bad quality if u compare to the movies that are released nowadays!

One of the best cs-movies from that time, together with "The Fellowship of NoA" and "SK.swe The Latest Hits" i think!

I wasn't offended rich, although I can see in my post that it may look like it. I was just expressing my point :)

But man, afroman will explode any download meter I'm sure
haha :D

Yeah we are gonna use the power of moving images to change the world!
woooo!

Btw I didn't notice until now, but in the beginning of the Evanescence song there is a fancy first-person effect thing. That in-eye...that's you isn't it, Zakna?

Oh and my picture is there too :D
