Friends, I have some delightful news to share. Recently I entered the shovemedia contest to win 30 days of free coworking at Designbox, and today I received confirmation that I won! This is great news, as it means we can finish Abandoned Allies much faster.
Shovemedia, a boutique interactive development studio, is sponsoring the 30 days of free coworking. I sat down with Jon Williams of shovemedia to tell him about our project, where it currently stands, and how we plan on finishing it within those 30 days.
It's an ambitious goal to finish the film within the next month, but it's definitely possible. We are so close to finishing it, and having the use of this space will make a huge difference. I am positively ecstatic about working on the film at Designbox.
Designbox is a really cool space in downtown Raleigh where creative people can come to work. They have fun First Friday events, like the PBaRt show and concert. Designbox members feature, encourage and nurture creative people so they can do impressive things; but they also make it easy for the public to learn about the creative work and its results. Check out some of their photos. Here's what the website states about Designbox:
Designbox is North Carolina’s influential spot where unique creative professionals share space and work together. Located in downtown Raleigh, N.C., the members of Designbox have been nominated and won many national honors in their respective fields. Designbox is responsible in part for nationally recognized events such as SPARKcon, Kirby Derby Day, Xtreme Suburban Endurance Events and helping the City of Raleigh redevelop City Plaza.
Working on the film from Designbox will help me stay focused, motivated, and encouraged. I'll be able to lead my team much more efficiently and effectively, meaning we can finish the film much faster. Entering the film into the Full Frame film festival before November 30th is my new goal, and I'm counting on it happening thanks to shovemedia and Designbox.
Scope out this stop-motion promotional video Jon did for the contest. I loved hearing him talk about the production of the promotional video. Very cool stuff, indeed.
