For 5 weeks we were kings. For five weeks we goofed and played and worked. For Machinima, for ourselves, for our kin folk, but mostly, what we did, we did...

For Science!

And what sort of scientist would we be with out our trusty pipes?

Of course, I'm not always so good with words...

God speed Barry, may your visit to Hawaii surf you well, and may we meet again this Fall, with one bad-ass son-of-a-bitch Machinima film with which to slay the masses.

They had it coming

Barry Takes Flight!

Mike is clearly using my PC for evil.

I pitch my new ideas!

We build the great wall of mostly pure cane sugar soft drinks

It belongs in a museum... of art!

Welcome to Boom Boom Town!

Festival Machinima 2008 Film

Welcome to the office Lord Barricus!

Here we see Barry testing 2 of the 5 laptops he brought.

Take that Mike!

And this is for the nonbelievers... or me. I'm not certain, really.

Barry has been here for about a week now, and we're moving right along with the project. The whiteboard reflects our respective task, and by bedtime Sunday, we should be 80% out of pre-production (Scripts, storyboard, but not quite all of the concept art). Next week is voices, and I begin the moving storyboards in 3D, while also studying on various engine tools. A feature full trial run is still needed, but my gut says my plan of action will require minimal tweaking.

Also, you may have heard this already, but it looks like this year's Machinima Film Festival is go. I really, really missed it last year.

I'm sure everyone has seen this already, but if not, I highly recommend checking out the last BloodSpell blog entry.

For anyone who has ever attempted, or dreamed of being involved in a feature film, this last letter will touch home, resonate, and likely draw a few tears. If nothing else, it's yet another great example of, "And so can you!"

To that end, Strange Company has also been releasing a series of behind the scenes, making-of shorts that cover the creation of a feature-length Machinima film in your apartment. They start right here. I hope this becomes a trend with other studios, even if it's just covering a cute little short you did one Sunday afternoon...

Music and Surviving 9 to 5

Some days are long. Really, really long. Some days you're doomed to your office (sheeyeahright!), and some workplaces block all the good stuff. (I can honestly say, it's my own fault... I wrote half the block list!)

Sometimes, music is the only thing we have.

Not sure where I first got wind of the thing, but I found this site several months ago, and I've been hooked like a fish with a death wish. It's basically a social bookmarking site, like digg or reddit, but for music. They stream in music on the big list, and if you like it, you can add it, or bump it up. It's got some RPG elements going too. My roommates and I gtalk links to the sweet songs at least once a week, and it's just a ton of fun to promote your favorites. What I really enjoy, is that they give the artist free reign over their MP3s: buy, download, both or neither! For the camping road trip, I burned what I could from my playlist to CD, and it was quite the conversation piece over those longer stretches of Texas nothingness...
