Anyone ever read MuNansen's Blog
Always well written, insightful, and I can't shake the feeling that DoQ's the mystical ground breaking studio he's always talking about. I don't think its ego this time, but an honest to goodness unwillingness to stop producing until we've shattered all the conventions, and have become that studio. A fundamental shift has occurred in the DoQ work ethic sometime in the last 12 months, I can't quite put my finger on it, but we seem to have hit a stride of creative madness that just feels right. Like everything before this was a house of straw, and we suddenly woke up one day in the little piggy’s weekend cottage of brick.
So where does that put the big bad wolf? The DoQ wolf has always been finishing what we start. We have a tendency to come up with great ideas that we let fester with inaction, or we discuss them at such length that they end up six feet under before we can lift the lens. A lot of that stemmed from being young and idealistic, with no idea where to begin with all this computer art jazz; we were just feeling our way around the world of film and game art for years. But if you feel around long enough, you’re bound to strike something…
So what makes us like the three little pigs? Such a classic tale, it depicts the trial and error method of mankind oh so well. When you first set out to do a project, logic doesn’t always come with you. Sometimes you have to build a house of straw and watch the wolf blow it down before you’re able to rebuild it stronger, better, and more creatively. I would like to believe that we are on our way to that fabled brick house, standing firm on the foundations of life’s education.
The world stands on the perpetual edge of oblivion, you can chose to jump into it with everyone else, or fight the bitter pull of gravity and attempt to concur it. It takes hard work, vision, and the wherewithal to see the deed done, but before you know it, you’ve got a film in the can. With luck, maybe it’ll be a good one.
I think the original point was this: For hardcore Machinima bloging, stick with Mu. For an insight on the inner thoughts of one of Machinima's many visionaries, that rarely post about Machinima, then stick around!
