I have a little one-man band project going on, and I have the guitars, bass and drums pretty much covered, but I can't sing for shit, and I don't really know anyone who can. So if anyone out there, who are fairly decent at rock/metal vocals, would be interested in helping out in a musical project, you are more than welcome, if you are so inclined! It's not a professional project by any means, just something for the hell of it. So I'm not looking to "hire" anyone.
Yo, you like Tron Legacy and/or Daft Punk? Me too! And after rewatching Tron Legacy, I wondered if Daft Punk's End Of Line soundtrack would work as a rock cover. So I recorded this thing. I have no idea how to take the song further though, so for now it's just a small snippet, but I'm fairly pleased with how it turned out.
My first blog entry - Ooh, exciting! I'm not really into blogs and stuff, but for once I have something I feel like sharing, and this seems like an appropriate place to do it.
I have almost always more or less been aiming for a career in the games development industry, more specifically the 3D graphics part of games development. Now, I live in a tiny country with no real prominent game industry, so I have sort of been swimming up stream, so to speak, in regards to career path choices. None the less, I have stuck with doing what I love to do, which is 3D art and modeling, and have been working professionally as a 3D artist for some years, doing visualizations and animations. Not exactly a dream job in regards to what I set out to do at the start of my professional career, but it has been alright so far, and the career options doing viz stuff are a lot safer, so to speak, so now, at the age of 28, I was starting to think that I should just focus on what I'm doing now and give up the dream of working with games.
But last week I was contacted by a games studio who had noticed me, and offered me a job. I'm pretty stoked about it! The studio is small potatoes, but as anyone who have ever looked at job applications for bigger studios know, it's almost always a requirement to have had 2-5 years prior experience in the games industry, so this is a big step in the right direction for sure. Now I have a foot in the door.
So yeah. There's no real point to this story, other than me being excited and wanting to tell someone. But also to say that it's never too late to pursue your dreams, with persistence and patience, sometimes they do come true.
... Yeah, that last part was kinda cheesy, sorry 'bout that.
