In the last post I wrote on this blog I talked about doing a lot of projects. Well Here we are in March and . . . I actually have been working on a lot of projects. That is actually the reason I have not been posting here at this blog, which is unfortunate and I am going to try to remedy this! For now though, let me talk a bit about what has happened over the last few months, and possible it will all make more sense!
At some point after my last post I contacted some people I had been talking about working with for some time to start working on some projects. We started talking and things began to blossom, and New Monster was kind of reborn out of a desire to create and having no real outlet. We have been making videos and doing some fun stuff with our projects. The neatest thing about the projects is that they riff on things I have been talking about for a long time. Toys, and video, and games and the 80s. Its been a blast and a whirl wind. I really enjoy getting in and doing the nitty gritty of production work. It takes me back to my school days when I was on deadlines and wanted to create something that was meaningful. More importantly than all of that though, is the fact that I have been doing stuff with ideas that often fall on deaf paper!
With New Monster we have been putting a lot of effort into a project called Collecting Nostalgia. the basic idea is that we spend some with and profile collectors and let them tell their story. It has been fun. At the moment we are still elbow deep in the editing process.
Shortly after New Monster got back off the ground I was approached by my friend Josh Wilson about participating in a new Doctor who podcast, about Doctor Who spin off media such as novels and audio. It is called "The Oncoming Storm" It has been a lot of fun getting back into Doctor Who in a fun way that is a little different and takes my mind off some of the newer stuff that I don't like as much! This has been a lot of fun because I get back into the swing of things with Doctor Who just in time for Timegate.
Of course that brings me to Timegate. Timegate is the project I already had going. For the last two years I have been programming co-director of Timegate for the Doctor Who portal. this has been a joy to work on with My friends Alan, Martin, George, and Denise! it has been a lot of fun, and I look forward to another great year this year.
With all of these new things and a few more things coming up the pike I am excited about the rest of this year and where I will be after this!
This year has already been a whirlwind for me. and I don't anticipate it changing, but I do want to take some time out to participate in this blog more than I have been!
So let me know what you have been up to this year! I would like to see what kinds of projects people have set for themselves.
also I want to get back to the roots of this blog and start talking about fandom and comics, and toys, and tv again, so what do you want to hear about. I hope to have some new features coming soon!
