Question for you all: 

I've finished the first 5 or so pages of the new comics project. It's quite experimental, including the art style. It's also not in the webcomic style - in other words, the 1-page-per-day thing wouldn't work so much. 

Stick out the first 5 pages for comment now, or wait for the entirety of Issue 1 (22 pages, ish) to be finished? What do you think?

I remember using free cover software from 3DWorld magazine to do photo-to-models & it was a pain. Now it all seems to be cloud based.

What's the future for virtual reality movies? I look at the challenges of making movie-like experiences in Virtual Reality with the Oculus Rift, as well as the artforms - from porn to experimental theater - we can learn from when we're doing so.

Minecraft, The Sims, And The Future Of Filmmaking - I make the possibly heretical suggestion that movie-making is about to become a lot more fun. A game, even.

Roundup of all my Death Knight Love Story guest posts from around the Web. If you want to hear why you should make a film in a computer game, find out how DKLS came to be, find out why our characters sometimes seem to hold their swords the wrong way round or learn about the musical influences of the film from Kurosawa to Wagner, have a read!
