Starting on Our First Project

We've started our first project - "How To Be A Superhero - Chapter 1: Discovering Your Superpower." Yes, I said Chapter 1. This will be the first in a 5 part series of very unrealistic, just-for-laughs videos. I will play the guy that gets pulled off the street and paid $20 to be a test subject. Daylan will play the guy running the tests (Oh, of course, they're very scientific... Yeah, right!). And Andrew will be the one running the show. We should start filming the first week of May, and have it done by the end of the month.

Oh, and I honestly don't think that I'll look like that in the video, but the picture was classic HeroMachine fun.

The Membership is Growing

On Saturday I met with Andrew and Daylan. They were both in that initial film that we did, and were hard working, talented guys. I'm glad to have them on board. They may even make a few posts here. Andrew's specialty is fight choreography, as well as writing. Daylan is an awesome designer and 3d modeler, and is pretty good at programming as well. And they both share my passion for making games and movies. As far as I know, Andrew doesn't have his own site, but Daylan's is at

Oh, and for your viewing enjoyment, here is that film I keep talking about.

Illusionext is Officially Up And Running

A little over a year ago, I headed up a little film we called Eilert The Dragon Slayer. While we had made a few short films before, this time we were attempting something that had never been done at the Murray ITT before - a ten minute short film. We were told that anytime another group had attempted to make a film longer than two minutes, they had failed. Ours was ten minutes. Well, we made it. It's far from perfect, but it was done.

We called ourselves Illusionext. We've hardly seen each other since then, so we haven't used the name since. But today I'm changing that. Today Illusionext is back.
