Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, California.
Favorite Movies and Shows:
I made my first machinima film in 2004. The title was Star Wars: Wrath of the Wolves. I used the program Fraps and footage for the MMOG Star Wars: Galaxies. I had a lot of fun working with my cast. The end product turned out better than expected. It was a blast.
After running into an old friend, I was offered a seat at the writers table for a sketch comedy television show in San Francisco. The show only ran one season, but six of my sketches were aired. The thrill of sitting in a large audience, listening to the crowd laugh at the talented actors playing out my script was unforgettable.
I purchased The Movies Game about a month after its release. I was overjoyed at all the creative possibilities this new software could bring. My first short film, Jesus VS Easter, was a script I had written for the television shows second season opener, which of course never happened. The response to my first TMO film was overwhelming and encouraging. I then followed up with two remakes of aired sketches I wrote for the television show, Space Hunger and The Unwanted Hetero. My first non-comedy movie, The Courage Within series was presented by Lionhead Studios Ltd at the Rome Film Festival, to show what can be produced with their software. It was indeed a thrill. It wasn't until The Movies Game Online website shut down, did I get to expand my ideas with the wonderful world of outside editing. (The Movies Game Online prohibited the use of outside editing) After that, I began a series of horror shorts, including my personal favorite, Saimaya. Saimaya, the fourth film in my demon/angel horror series, was produced mostly with French and German languages, a venture I had great reservations about. However, when I heard the extraordinary performances of Mike Dboing. Sisch and Marie Dboing, I knew the project was something special. In the end, I consider it my personal best. I have recently uploaded all of my films over the past five year on my YouTube page here: http://www.youtube.com/user/MefuneAkira
I discovered Moviestorm in 07. My first impression was serious doubt. Now, in 2010, Moviestorm is my new home for movie making. I just wish you could look at something and still be able to use gestures. I mean COME ON MAN!...ah well, in time perhaps. Lol
