On private projects

Today I stumbled across the animation short “The Passenger” on YouTube. An Australian animator spent eight years of his life and all of his private savings to complete the project. He described the process on his site. It’s an interesting read of a man who pursues his creative vision, determined to do it all himself and never compromise. I can identify with the strive to realize ideas , but it’s also a lesson to keep the scope within the manageable. With electronic devices, time to market can also be essential. As he points out:

“During the making of this film, A Star Wars trilogy, a Lord Of The Rings trilogy and a Harry Potter trilogy were made (not by me).”

Another project with undefined time schedule that comes to mind is Duke Nukem Forever
