Can't wait! But why does it take so long to produce?
Everyone hides who they are at least some of their time. Sometimes you bury that part of yourself so deeply that you have to be reminded it's there at all. And sometimes you just want to forget who you are all together.

I'm making the video in the sense of how a VN plays out.

E.g, there are two sprites and a text box. I've yet to make the sprites, but the editing in After Effects takes a while.

It's extra work, but I really think it'll be worth it

Just started uploading it - it's at 20%.

I'm going to choose to apologies now for my stuttering and horrible pronunciations.

You can also download it as well, so you can listen to it elsewhere.

When I was just about to leave :( it's pretty late here so I'll have to listen to it tomorrow.

Great, thank you :D
I'll listen to it as soon as I get a chance. (Unfortunately I don't have time right now neither :P)

And btw, sorry for not adding any question eventually :P
I made a list, but when I came back to this thread to post it, I saw that all of my questions were already asked xD

Done listening to it and all I can say is that not only the questions were very good, but the answers were also quite clear and interesting (for example the composer's inspiration, how he got into music, the addition of acoustic guitars and violins on some tracks and much more good stuff). I won't spoil any more information from the audio because I want more people to listen to it. I, for one, can say that it was definitely a great interview! Congrats!

Thanks! I was worried that I was getting in the way of Nicol at times, but at least someone enjoyed it. Makes it worth the effort.

Just finished it aswell. Great job, not only tracking him down and getting an interview but for all the questions I've wondered about. I'm really surprised he hasn't actually played the game, he doesn't know what he's missing. And at the end he said he might do something like this again. :shock: Would buy all of that sound track.

Wow, so he composed all those amazing pieces using FL and Finale?

Anyway, great interview, I've had a great time listening to it :) Thank you!
I'll look forward to watching the video.

Has the video come out yet? I've combed over NicolArmarfi's youtube channel but I don't think I could find it. Since on soundcloud, it says to find the full video and extended version on his youtube.

Commenting on the interview itself, it was great. The questions were great and revealed a lot about NicolArmarfi. It was really interesting and was very well done. I think you sounded just really nervous at times and made some awkward comments and silences but you always managed to save yourself. If you're doing interviews again in the future, you could be more confident. But that's about it, sounded more professional than I expected for a first-timer.

Was this interview done face to face or via Skype? There was a bit of a gap between the end of your questions and the start of his answers which made for some awkward interruptions.

It was done on Skype, so there was a little delay from London to Canada. But, yeah, listening over, I really was quite nervous at the time.

In regards to video, I would still like to make it, and probably will, but at the time being, preparing for interviews with universities is my top priority,

Thanks for the comments though, and I'm glad you listened to it.
