No risk of that ever happening! If if feel a little burned out once in a blue moon I just take one or two days off and come back with a replenished enthusiasm.evilkinggumby wrote:I just hope he doesn't get burned out or abandons it because it's taking too long
Basically it's the secret to bringing any long-haul effort to fruition; choose something that is very close to your heart. Not just some cool idea or flashy stuff. Because during the process there WILL be times where you feel tired and doubts about the validity of the whole enterprise may creep in the back of your mind.
And it is in those very moments that your motivation may vanish to never come back IF the project was not truly important to you in the first place.
In my case Ghost of a Tale is something I've carried in me for a very long time. Since the time I started playing a new game called "Doom". My mind was blown because beyond what was there I realized the sheer potential of video-games as an immersive experience.
I just took a very long detour making movies and learning my craft with some of the best mentors in the world without ever losing from sight the technological progress games were accomplishing in parallel.
Believe me when I say that making Ghost of a Tale is a kid's dream come true. I'll never give that up because it is a part of me.
Will it take more time than I had anticipated? Maybe. But it will get done in the end. And I want to be happy and proud of the result. And I certainly hope that you guys will be as well!
