I thought now would be a good time to outline the goals of our little organization. Our long term goal is in Interactive Storytelling. If you're not familiar with that concept, it's what the Choose Your Own Adventure books were, except that we plan to do it with video. We've considered both animation and live action, so we'll see where that goes.
The thing is that interactive stories require considerably more work than regular fiction. A one hour story that has only four decisions from the audience would require over seven hours of footage (that's some math that I definitely need to look at more closely - there has to be a formula for that). I would consider us amateur filmmakers at best, so we have some progress to make before we start in on the really difficult stuff. That's why we're currently working on silly little short films like "How To Be a Superhero" - It's all for practice.
And for fun. Fun is good. :-)
