Free Support and Outreach for Colorado's Filmmaking Community
As some of you know, I've been pretty active in the video game realm since 2005 and while I love it, I've really been drawn back to film work lately. It's something I did for a while then stopped (mainly due to workload and scheduling) and now I'm missing it dearly. The balance isn't there. Video games are great and getting more and more complex and deep with each new iteration of software and hardware. But it doesn't compare to seeing talented people bringing the narrative to life. This is what I'm missing. That's what I'm longing for.
The nuance of someone's facial expression, body language. A change in tonal inflection. The setting. Drawing the audience in and having them completely forget their own existence and begin to identify and care of the one you're painting right in front of them. Even with the best technology there are layers, undertones, experiences that video games cannot do - but film can.
I want to help tell this story again. I want to feel that sort of connection, my audio work collaborating with people and places and supporting the narrative. No, I'm not leaving games. I still love that industry and let's face it - it's paying the bills right now. But to be able to slip back into a great film project every now and then would be extremely fulfilling for me at this stage of my life and career.
Sort of a rambling blog but those are my thoughts on a cloudy Friday afternoon while listening to various soundtracks. :)
