Origin and Production Edit
MetropoliS officially began at the end of may 2010 as Half Life 2, the Fate of new little Odessa. then evolved over that year then collapsing in early 2011 due to Clinical errors and disputes. the new work began after inspiration the Director had after meeting Christian Lockard (Liquid Wolf, Liquid Oni) who had inspired him to rewrite and revamp the Lifeless production. "as i see it, he has single handedly resparked MetropoliS, the movie would have died otherwise, as i had no way to complete its fluency prior" a recall from the director. soon after the Movie was invigorated, Production soon began shortly afterwards, work began again, with a little more influence from its original ideals and the Fritz Lang Masterpiece of the same name.
Pagan Incident- when latest actor jon (jason) pagan winchester came aboard, the series took a new comic-ish style, and introduced new characters such as Liquid Wolf/Oni, Major Mylar, Anne Boelin, and the Doppelganger, though there soon became a big distinction between the two, leaving production all screwy
Sadly, later issues occurred, props and costumes, displacement of actors, summer work, depression, and even attempted suicide by the Director. partially ignited by the movement of schools by Lockard, and the depression of other matters, such as displacement, it occured on July 18th, 2011, not much else was wished to be shared by the Director other than it was stopped due to the reluctance of Lockard, and others.
The Situation of Replacement- Nicole Antoni was Replaced by Robin Hoerth for the role of Marie Antionette
Currently MetropoliS is going through her 5Th Reinstallment and revision.
