Planning, Physical Modelling, Occulus and Hawken


Kubrick on planning:

How much planning do you do before you start to shoot a scene?
As much as there are hours in the day, and days in the week. I think about a film almost continuously.

Eitan Grinspun does a lot of work on Physical Modelling – adding physical properties to three dimensional geometry in order to simulate them more effectively. Don’t fake it, make it! Via Tim Greatrex.

Oculus have made the greatest CTO hire ever – John Carmack. Cue hilarious PR battling between the companies he left. I love how he summed up his time now:

“My time division is now Oculus over Id over Armadillo. Busy busy busy!”

Hawken is a completley free to play game. We’ll be seeing more of these. I’d love to try it with an Oculus.
