Description

At GO3 in Perth last month I had a chance to spend some time with Rod Fergusson from Epic (Producer: Gears of War) who was in town to speak about the importance of and challenges associated with creating a franchise.

On the final day of the conference I roped in Dan Armstrong to kindly help film a little 5 minute interview with Rod which quickly became 20 minutes of craziness that I've cut down to just under 11 mins of "G rated" material.

Some of the amazing revelations from Rod Fergusson contained within this interview:
- Rod and Cliff B's "special relationship"
- The TRUE inspiration for Gears of War
- We ALMOST had a sequel to Bloodwake,..

Re "censorship" - Rod and I should probably never be on camera together; for some reason we bring out the potty mouth in each other far too easily which is why there are a few words/phrases/hand gestures *bleeped* out. Feel free to use your imagination to guess what Rod might have said when the government censor man hits the big red *bleep* button.

A big thank you to Dan Armstrong for filming the interview for me. Check out StrongMan Pictures for more info on Dan's films and the Australian independant film making scene.

      That has got to be the worst filmed interview I have ever seen. I eventually minimized the video and just listened to the audio...the constant camera movement is terrible. Dan might be a good filmmaker but please don't let him shoot any more interviews.
