Listening to: TRANCE AROUND THE WORLD
Alright so here's what's up...
I've nearly completed this semester of school with relative ease. I have not submitted anything for a while, but I have been working on some new awesome web-design/flash stuff as well as a matte painting/spacescape. I will finish those things up and submit them over the winter break.
But mainly what I want to address in this journal is my plans for another massive non-profit personal project. See, I have been having these visions and ideas coming into my head for almost a year now, and they have gotten much more intense as the end of 2009 approaches. As I had mentioned in my previous entry, this will be a "just-for-kicks" project that will be developed in flash and I am naming it "The Swift Project"
The effort required to complete this could possibly exceed quadruple that of advancedUI or v5 interface. I estimate around 700 to maybe even 1000+ hours that I will need to spend on it to make this thing become a reality... and much of it will be dedicated to the actionscript programming. Possibly 10,000 to 15,000 lines of code? IDK, Hard to say right now... but to prepare, I have just ordered two advanced textbooks to extend my already existing knowledge of the language because I will need to know it inside and out just to make it EASIER. This winter break will be SWIFT PROJECT PHASE-0: Preparation
I am still seeking an AS assistant developer to help me where I get stuck, because I KNOW that there will be moments where I WILL struggle. I'm still looking for AS developers that are highly experienced in flash interface programming. I can compensate, but only minimally as this is a non-profit project. Much of the reward will come in the form of credit/exposure on the project.
I have already brought on-board a sound-designer for this. The quality of this project needs to be maximized in every way possible. Absolutely no margin for half-assing on anything whatsoever.
The whole thing may sound insane, but to me, it just simply needs to be done... or I will never be satisfied.
Oh and if you're wondering what this whole project even is, I will not disclose what it is until I release it to the public mid next year. This is to maximize the "WOW" factor. Sorry folks, but that's just the way I need it to be. So Keep an eye out, I want to be able to release this by the end of next summer. It's going to be awesome!!
