L2Machinima Release Date: 1/12/2007

One full month after its intial release date, L2Machinima will be released on the first of Decemeber. Why the delay you ask? Well, I initially wanted to do something, but after many scrapped versions of videos, and load screens and voice recordings, I was trying to find a style that I liked and how I wanted to present to my users. So, overall, I underestimated the amount of work and time this would take to do. Hopefully once I have a few tutorials out, I will be able to focus on the Christmas machinima contest over at

Another reason for the 1/12 release date is that my Project Coordinator told me that he'd cut my funding if I didn't get it out soon. When I pointed out to him that I don't actually get any funding, he told me that he'd just send me nasty letters.

So here I am, commiting again to a date that I hope I can make.

Site Highlight: DaFont

Ranking: 5/5

DaFont is my one stop shop for all my fonts, and with over 7,600 free fonts it never disappoints. From cartoon to exotic to dingbas galor, you can't not find something to fit with your production. This perfect resource scores high on the list because not only does it offer so many free fonts, and so many types of fonts, but it also offers the nifty feature of allowing you to enter a word or two into textfield, and then having all the fonts display with your chosen words. This makes finding the perfect look for your logo a snap!

Delay in L2Machinima

Yup, if you hadn't noticed by now, there was a delay in L2Machinima. However, it should be done soonish now, so expect it soon. To fill in the void, I'm going to try make a post everyday about an excellent resourse out there for Machinimaists!

The good news is that I changed the HTML code for the blog to so that it would point to my picutres on a permanent server rather than an image hosting service. That I don't get any of those ugly broken image links.
