I somehow forgot to tell you all this INSANE thing that happened to me last month. Check out my Jurassic Outpost article for the full details, but in short: I went to a special preview of an art exhibit for Jurassic Park's production designer Rick Carter. Me and Rick have been in correspondence due to this production I created (which included me interviewing him). So I go there, only expecting to meet him. Oh, but no... I also met the storyboard artist David Lowery and art director John Bell (both of whom I have also interviewed). So it was really surreal.

But then, just as I am talking about the production I made for Rick, and showed off a Blu-ray cover for it... someone nearby saw it, and saw the URL for my Jurassic Time site (jurassictime.trescom.org) and he suddenly said, "I think I know who you are." And so, Seamus Blackley introduced himself, as I realized I knew who he was! I didn't at first, but to be fair he was wearing a face mask!

He was amazing to talk to! We chatted for maybe close to 10 minutes? He was just very nice and had an amazing personality. And of course, at one point in our conversation, I brought up Trespasser itself and told him just how much it meant to me and to everyone like at TresCom, despite it's flaws and how it all turned out... and how for me it was "my great escape" to a world I had always wanted to go. Then, he put his hand on my shoulder, and I think either he felt emotional from me saying that or pretended to be (haha), and thanked me for my words. The event was a pretty big party with other people around (I also bumped into the production designer of E.T., for example), so we both parted not long after that. But wow... meeting Seamus was definitely a highlight to what was a really insane experience for me.

Oh man! That is some nice luck. I actually already saw that article and posted here about the full-resolution "Guernica", but didn't get through the whole page. That sounds like a really nice time. Has a TresCom member ever met a dev in person before this? :O

That is amazing! I think it is easy to write something online how something it is so important to them, but it feels more when someone tells you it :D
