on Que is an independent film and animation studio founded in 1999.
Based in Texas, Dead on Que strives to create original content based on
the principles of artistic and narrative expressionism. We are a team
of three highly creative and motivated individuals whose work has
helped pave the way for the future of Machinima.
- Michael Holochwost: Director, storyboards, concept artist, and visionary.
- Brian Mayberry: Director, 3D artist, producer, editor, and website.
- Daniel O'Neill: Musician, muse, and the backbone of our films.
2002's short: “Fake Science” Dead on Que raised the bar of production
and made aware the abstract possibilities of Machinima, by turning away
from traditional video game assets and values, and instead focusing on
aesthetics, poetry, and music. “Fake Science,” took home 3 nods, and
won for Best Visual Design at the 2002 Machinima Film Festival.
It has been the subject of countless articles in a wide array of
publications such as 3D World Magazine, and has made official selection
and various film and animation festivals, such as Bitfilm, and the
Ottawa International Animation Festival.
