      Ok even though no one actually reads this thing i am determined to actually write something in it today. I admit i do not use the features on this site as much as i used to. In fact all i really do anymore is come to the site, watch the new episode of RvB and then click off. Anyway when i first used the forums on this site i wanted to create Machinima using the MMORPG RuneScape. I was mocked on the forums for wanting to do such a thing. I shrugged off the laughing and the jokes that were made at my expense and started work scripting my idea. My vision was a show about a guy getting sucked into the game and his struggle to get back to the real world, it was also a metaphor for how a lot of people get addicted (sucked in) to video games. It lasted seven episodes and never really turned out like i planned.

      I should of just moved on to a new project, thats what my friends told me anyway, but i was determind to make a go of that show. I deleted every episode, rewrote all the scripts, re-filmed and edited it all together. The second version of the show was a lot more like what i had invisioned. Though now i have moved on to a new series (still using RuneScape) my video have gained their audiance. Maybe not a huge one but people do watch and enjoy my work. So all i want to say is if you are thinking of making your own Machinima, animation or any form of film production....don't listen to the people that put down your idea, just do it. For anyone who is actually reading this i thank you and if you are curious about my work then feel free to check it out at www.youtube.com/darmelton

      Do you ever have one of those days where something happens that makes you feel so bad you cant go on? Even though you have so many good things in your life all you can think about is this one bad thing that has happened. Life goes on it has to, or we are all just walking corpses......and i aint there yet.

      Alot of things seem to be changing lately, some bad and some very very good. I guess change isnt as scary as people make out it is.

    • Over used?

      Im torn on the subject of whether Halo has been over used for machinima. Red vs Blue is excellent but there does seem to be alot of copys of it on the internet nowadays. It would be nice to see someone make something origanal.

      ODST will be within my grasp in 2 hours and 45 minuets

      Well ODST doesnt come out for another three short days, which will seem like weeks. So i have bought myself a copy of Wolfenstein to keep me occupied till we drop. To be honest i am loving Wolfenstein, great story, great graphics. Could do with a better rifel but thats the only fault. Anyway due to problems (body actor is away) i can not complete the next episode of Runeverse so have nothing stopping me from playing ODST when it comes out. Well that is my little rant over so take care.......one more thing though....

      Are you ready to drop?

      not a fan of the handheld market to be honest, thats why i think XBLA would be more appropriate.

      but a full game in a more gothic version of his style would be interesting

      yeah, im quite interested in which developers he spoke to.

      in a totally non-insulting way, i can only picture his work on arcade games...things with cell shaded, vector graphics.

      it'd be good to see some of his other types of drawings...i think he'd be a good asset to the games industry.

      id buy a game in his style for sure

    • kimmer007

      Thank you my dear. Until next time.

      Lol! Indeed. Well, I have had the most enjoyable time talking with you, but I am sorry, I must be going to bed. I have to be up early for a jog. May I talk to you again soon?

      Oh, come on, I bet you'd look great in an apron pushing a vacuum... lol!

      I don't mind, that's what I want out of life eventually.

    • kimmer007

      Hardly, I actually miss working with those guys. They made everything so funny. I didn't mind all the cleaning, I'm good at it. They use to tease me about how I was going to make a great housewife one day....

    • kimmer007

      9 years ago

      Yes well, he harassed me to no end. I was the only female working there with 7 other guys... so, I was the one cleaning the bathroom, vacuuming the store, and mopping the front entrance... There excuse, I was better at it.

    • kimmer007

      Awesome. One of my former bosses lent me the first season on dvd...

      Why not? You seem like an intelligent, good looking guy, I can't imagine you not hearing you're awesome all the time.

    • kimmer007

      Yes, well I'm like that all the time, so our minds must be great!

    • kimmer007

      Oh, I don't mind. I was actually going to ask you if I could add you...

      Yeah, I apologize for the general atmosphere of that thread. It used to be a nice place where people could just come and get help, but too many of the regulars seem to confuse "help" with "making someone feel bad." I'm all for the constructive criticism, which at times can be harsh, but all too often people end up just being mean.

      I mean the people who fight to improve just to show us how wrong we were are pretty cool success stories, but I feel like we drive away too many people that still have potential.

    • TKdademon

      9 years ago

      Personally I pretty much never watch someone's videos until they post the second time, so I haven't actually seen yours. But if it's the first thing you've made (and admittedly your chosen platforms are pretty bad already) then I'm not expecting greatness, which is fine, because then there are finite things to improve for later.

      Know what I mean?

    • TKdademon

      9 years ago

      Not sure if you actually left that thread or not, but since your last post there have been a few actual GOOD responses from NICER people willing to help. So check it out again if you didn't already plan to.

      thats a good attitude to have.

      if you want any help with the series let me know...im pretty new to the actual production of machinima, but ive been writing concepts for quite some time

      theyre going to bitch and moan in the upcoming projects thread regardless of what is said in there.

      you could turn up with the best idea and amazing test videos and they'd still pick holes in it...its the nature of the thread...point out your flaws to make you get better/prove us wrong.

      in a twisted kinda logic, theyre assholes in a good way
