Well I finally got everything done to ensure the ability to get donations through ChipIn. I'm not going to sit here and beg for donations, as much as they'd be appriciated, I'm not going to push it. Feel free to donate if you really want to.
In other news, I have officially decided on a series to make into a machinima.
Silverborn: The Gatekeepers
It's actually more of an entire world. Silverborn is going take place in the world of CréMháthair (don't ask me how to pronounce that, I'm still a n00b when it comes to irish gaelic) a world I created all on my own. I am going to take elements from World of Warcraft and Dragon Age: Origins in order to create this world and the machinima series. Right now I'm still learning the basics of the DA:O toolset, and have only been able to create enviroments and character head morphs successfully.
For the Gatekeepers series, I'm planning on doing what I normally do with my machinima, except I'll be using Dragon Age for the backgrounds instead of WoW. All of the characters will be done with WoW model viewer. I have a small portion of the script done for episode one, which will take a while to be written I think, since I still have so much to write when it comes to the culture, history, mythology, and peoples of the world.
That's all I've got for now.

...thanks to MachinimaVault.
I came home last night to find a message from Stu, the lead founder of MachinimaVault. This is what it said:
You have no clue how excited this made me! Though I was a bit skeptical at first. After sending messages back and forth with Stu, as well as checking up on the channel, it all seems pretty legit.Hi, we noticed you have some great machinimas on your channel :)
We were wondering if you would be interested in submitting some videos to our channel to see what sort of feedback you get, and given the circumstances that it gets strong positive feedback we would love to consider having you as one of our main Wow Machinima directors.
Our channel was made only yesterday but we are growing strong and fast and have a wide variety of contacts in the gaming world including contracts with machinima.com and would be happy to hear back from you.
The first video they wanted to host, for a short trial run, was AttentionWhore. Unfortunately, they uploaded it to their channel before I really got a chance to say 'yea' or 'nay' or even talk with Isolte about it. Thankfully, tho, they were nice enough (and smart enough) to give both of us full credit, even being good enough to put annotation links in the video itself.
I hope Isolte is okay with this. It should get us both a ton of subs (I had like 20 waiting for me when I got on the comp this morning and have gotten about 10 since (I'm not very good at keeping track of #s x3)).
Oh, and before I forget. I told them to check out WoPairs and Quix0tica and hopefully extend to them the same deal. They both definitely deserve the publicity.
