Title: Hello! This is Anton
Post by: anton on December 07, 2012, 06:30:34 pm
Hi hi, I'm Anton Hand.

I'm an MFA student in electronic arts at (, in my thesis year. I make games and other kindasortanotquitegames with a wonderful group (

I've been a 3d artist for far longer than than I've done interactive work. I did a tour of duty in SecondLife during its heyday. I was a virtual reality brat in undergrad before that. I would say that my creative impulse always manifests itself first in the creation of an environment. In making interactive work my struggle is understanding exactly what is needed beyond a space for others to have a compelling experience.

Most (somewhat embarrassing) possibly surprising, this is actually the first forum I've decided to do more than lurk in. I tend towards shyness in online spaces (I was the recluse sculptor/architect in SecondLife).

While I interact with the games program at RPI, their mindset is far more in the direction of software development. I've been looking to become involved in a larger community of people operating in the difficult to define zone between game, interactive environment/narrative/gosh-we-need-better-terms-for-all-this.

Look forward to talking with you folks!

Welcome to the forums! Second Life was my roundabout way into game development and getting back into 3d as well. :)
