The Future After "The Ascendant"

Posted on November 15, 2010 at 3:41 AM Comments comments (0)

Why hello there



Now I am better "The Ascendant Part 2" is now underway and is almost half done. But this is not about the "The Ascendant Part 2"; it is about what will be happening after the ascendant is finished.



Firstly I will be doing a major upgrade on software and hardware. This includes a new processor, new hard rive and a new motherboard am also hoping to upgrade to adobe premier or Sony Vegas pro 9 at least (I use Sony Vegas 9)



After that is done there will be a couple of small gmod videos and a sires that will follow the story after the ascendant.


So that’s the plan.

Almost Hacked!!

Posted on October 11, 2010 at 4:09 AM Comments comments (0)

Yesterday (Sunday 10th October) I was hacked and almost lost my steam account. Here is the story.



I was looking at the community and found a link for "free games" I thought (extremely stupidly) ill check it out see what it really means. Later on when I was filming for the ascendant part 2 I got a notification saying my account was being accessed by another computer. I managed to change the password and verify it was me so I did and got the account back almost instantly.



However while my account was down the hacker sent the same web address I had followed earlier to friends and steam groups that I was a part of.



If you have received a web link form me do not go on it and delete it. I must also apologise to all of those that the hacker had sent the web link to. It was very foolish and is fully aware of all sings of a fake web page. There will be others who have done the same and I must say that they were hacked and were not the source of the problem. They were less fortunate and could not get back into their account

I notice that very few people are actually visiting this website and those that do join do not seem to be looking at the website. This is quite a large concern as the reason I am still blogging on this site is because;


• Those few who do visit actually don’t deserve a stop on blogging

• Passing the time when I was bored or did have important information


So yeah this is a growing concern and all comments are still welcome.



On other news the ascendant part 2 is now 1/3 complete and I will still be working on it. I have recently finished one of the hardest parts where there were many effects that had to work well in order to achieve the effect I was hoping for. Maybe after it’s done I may get more people to the this site, im not sure



Anyways i am off

New album yet still ill

Posted on September 20, 2010 at 4:29 AM Comments comments (0)

If you have read the last blog post you will know that I was unwell, this is still the case and it’s been affecting all aspects of life. However I have had the time to finish off more tracks and can now put them together as one album.



This work includes “Electrical Purity” and “Charged House” which can be viewed in this very website. There will be tracks that will not have been heard like "Lifted Burden" and my new favourite "Signals From Below" so keep up-to-date as will cover this topic again. It has been Fun making these tracks and when they come to be released I am sure you will enjoy listening to them.


As for the ascendant part 2 working is moving very slowly but it is moving as I have now done one of the hardest parts which included a korma key (green screen) and a lot of fine tuning to look right. however to make up for this I am now just needing to do recording and editing that is more simple and hopefully I will be feeling better soon so I can start working on it more.


That’s about it I suppose

Working with illness

Posted on September 13, 2010 at 6:47 AM Comments comments (0)

As some of you are aware I have been unwell lately so I have had to put the ascendant part 2 on hold (this you should know from the previous blog). I have now restarted work but at a slow pace due to me returning to collage, however I shall soon be working on it as much as I can within reason.



I released the trailer for the ascendant part 2 to prove that I was really working on something rather than finding excuses to what some may think was me doing nothing. You can find the video in the video page of this website where there is a link to the trailer that I will put up in the future.



That is pretty much it for now so ill sign off.

Thanks for reading

its been a while

Posted on August 24, 2010 at 9:06 AM Comments comments (0)

Yes. I understand that I have not made any blogs recently but it has been with reasons which I will share a bit about in this update.



Firstly on the 18th august I failed my driving test which had left me quite depressed and it was not good when I did not get the exam results I wanted the following day had made me feel down for sometime and I have not been able to make a happy blog or blog full stop. When I did the entry on exams are over (see entry in blog list) I thought I had done well and it’s a shock when you have not done so well.



Secondly while in Switzerland the computer at the hotel would no longer work after day 5 so I was unable to do much about that. It is the reason I did not update you all during my holiday. For those who are wondering it was an awesome holiday and a welcome get away from everything (not that I hate you all but I needed the break after all that I had been through)



Finally I would like to say I have started The Ascendant Part 2 and that it has been delayed due to the reasons stated above. However I do plan to resume work on it soon and I can tell you the bits I have been working on are good so far.


So now that you all know that i, m not dead ill bid you Farwell.

Switzerland - Day 2 - lake Thun

Posted on July 25, 2010 at 2:34 PM Comments comments (0)

I have not been upto much today as i was still recovering from the flight where i was up for 19 hours in total, so i went on a cruise around lake Thun which is next to the town i am staying in (Interlarken).i has been very hot which has meant that i was able to soak up the sun.


After my cruise i went to a plce called harder klum where there is a brilliant veiw of Interlarken.i am doing this entry from a computer in the hotel which costs for internet so i am making this brief.


Miss you all and hope the weather is as good there as it is here.

Switzerland here i come

Posted on July 19, 2010 at 9:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Hey there



Summer holidays are coming as lots of people are going away on holiday; I am one of those who will be doing this. As established by the title I am going Switzerland and it looks set to be awesome. I go on the 23rd July and return on the 7th of august. It is for this reason I will not be doing the ascendant part 2 until I come back.



On that note I am pleased to say that the plot is fixed and all I need to do is film it and edit it. The plot was something I was working on when I announced the ascendant part 1 and was one of the factors that took it so long to materialize. this time however I have the plot fixed and no one will guess (please do not PM me about it because I simply will not tell you. its not that I am mean but I want you to find out while watching the video itself for more effect) Another thing is that I may be busy and things may crop up so I will keep you updated and I will tell you about the holiday when I get back or if I get to a computer (should be one where i am staying that I can use)



One last thing, I have got my driving test on the 18th august. Passing this will allow me to drive independently so it’s a very big thing and it may postpone development on the ascendant but these things have priorites. So wish me luck on the test and ill update you all on Switzerland.



Have a great summer!

Releasing The Ascendant

Posted on July 5, 2010 at 4:05 AM Comments comments (0)

Well at long last I have finally finished The Ascendant and will be working on Part 2 in the near future when I am not so busy with other life related things. I must admit I am very pleased with my first story driven video and I can really see it doing well in the future.



Now that The Ascendant is released I can now concentrate on other pieces of work that are life related.

I don’t have much else to say really except to go and watch it and subscribe



Thanks for reading



looking back now i see its quite rough. Part 2 will be better

The reason I do not promise release Dates

Posted on June 24, 2010 at 4:41 AM Comments comments (0)

Hello all. I am now working on “The Ascendant” and now I am nearly finished but even now i am still not sure when it will be finished which moves me on to the topic.



We all know how things can suddenly stop us from doing things for a while well that seem to happen to me allot. This is only one of the reasons I don’t do release dates and it is probably one of the biggest. Another reason I don’t do this is that if i miss a deadline it seems to have the words "I am not going to release it" written all over it. For the people who have found this website you can understand what is happening.



I am thinking of posting crucial information (releases and things like that) on the steam page and keep anyone who logs onto this website all the information that is needed, this should make more people join the website as it is here that only people will see. This however will have its downfalls as it could mean people will thing the wrong things and never end up coming to this website in the first place.
