Wow! Things have changed around here - nice new forums.
We've just issued the following Press Release. I thought it may be of interest to you guys that followed the discussion on VirtualStage a few months ago.
Machines Don't Cry
Hundreds of years into the future, two treasure hunters explore an abandoned world in the hope of finding anything with great value to feed their greedy appetites. They find a robot, Sammy, that they believe could lead them to riches. However, the treasure hunters discover that Sammy is not merely a machine. But does the information Sammy reveals lead them to greater fortune?
"Machines Don't Cry" is the latest full length animated film from innovative filmmaker Romel Gallamoza. It is an adaptation of Mike Resnick's "Robots Don't Cry", a 2004 Hugo Award nominated short story. With the author's permission, Romel completed the film in less than six months, thanks to his use of Dakine Wave's VirtualStage. Romel says: "I've dreamed of making animated films since my teenage years and I am elated that Mike Resnick likes what I've done with this movie. I spent a lot of time evaluating machinima toolkits before I found VirtualStage. It's the perfect animation tool for the way that I work."
Paul Brown, CEO of Dakine Wave reciprocated: "We are delighted that a filmmaker with Romel's talent and imagination has chosen to use VirtualStage. His leading edge films illustrate just what can be achieved with the software."
