Tuesday, May 6, 2008, 12:32 PM - The OfficeBarry is all set to spend part of his summer in the DoQ office, working on his For Science project, and weíre damn glad to have him. I'm pretty excited about the whole gig, it's the first time we've had a third person so involved on a formal DoQ project; that they'd be in the same country, much less same office is unprecedented! I really like the idea over just interfacing through the interweb; I find having people at hand really motivates me.
We have the super-talented artist, Tommy W. Farley, working on the character designs, I canít wait to see how they turn out! Using an outside artist is also a first for DoQ, but weíve known Tommy for some time through SummerTech, and his unique styling fits perfectly with For Science.
Otherwise, things are pretty quiet; Iíve been lazy, touring Liberty City pretty much all day every day since GTA IV came out. I feel bad for not working on any Machinima lately, but I figure itíll be non-stop this summer. On that note, my old laptop has just about retired to HTPC status since the screen is nearly shot. I canít exactly spring for a new mobile rig powerful enough to do full-bore DoQ work, but Iím going to need something for the summer when Iím away from the office. Iíll be exploring the options this month, and Iíll report my findings for a budget minded Machinima friendly laptop.
Also, I'm really proud of this picture for some reason.
