Well it’s not exactly ‘ashes’, but I stupidly deleted the factual script I was creating for my Bonfire Night documentary. It must have happened while I was opening up space on my hard drive for a new piece I’ve been filming and editing over the past couple of days.
I’ve been contemplating how I can keep working towards my films being reachable and interactive, regardless of the subject itself. I’ve also noticed an increase in frequency of machinima shorts created in GTA V, which consequently has led me to start producing my first short film recorded entirely via a video game.
The piece is fairly sombre, as I wanted to deviate away from comedy which is the primary genre for machinima, and I feel that this can be successful due to the leaps and bounds video games have taken over the years to become more and more realistic.
