  The best thank you present ever??

Sam came down last week and dropped off a batch of her infamous brownies as a thank you for maintaining her web site.

2008-04-22 001

A swear these are the best tasting brownies I have ever had.  The batch only lasted around 7 hours with my housemates around.

Further verification of their tastiness - the last time Sam made me some, I was in London cutting the 5:13 trailer.  Whilst we were editing, a squirrel came through the window and took one straight from the cooling tray.  Lucky thing.

  Mutant Cows (This is why we have artists)...

When working on i-board and Big Day Out activities, the process is that the programmer normally does most of the work before the activity goes across to the artist, and then it comes back for final tweaking.  So I normally mock up some 'cheap' graphics whilst I'm programming to work with until Stuart or Jack work their magic.  Sometimes, I'll grab some placeholders from Google, and sometimes I'll just draw some stick men...  Anything else just looks demented, as is the case of my mutant cows for a farm simulation I'm working on...

They're almost scary.  Thankfully, they look a whole heap better when they come back from the artists....

  New Movie Details...

A few details have been released via a cast advert for the first of the two feature films that Chaos Created will be editing this year.

Perantauan Pictures and Befour Media UK, the team behind S'kali are now casting for their new feature-length horror/drama, written by Arivind Abraham and Keith Leong and to be directed by the former.

The film now has a name, 5:13, and I received an almost-final draft of the script last week and I think it's going to turn out to be a great film.  It has a far more universal appeal than S'kali and horror/thriller films from smaller film companies seem to be doing rather well as of late.

The film begins shooting on 5th May.

Welcome to the new Chaos Created blog, with background information, development diaries and more.

The intention is to keep a running diary of some of our more interesting work, and gather opinions on some of our forthcoming projects.

We'll also, from time to time, no doubt get distracted by some of the things on the web.

For the daily kicks, check out our microblog over in our labs - that's the day to day thoughts and updates, powered by Twitter.  This blog will be for news announcements, and longer, more detailed posts about the projects we are working on.
