Notes from the Manager
Incidentally, that's a Tomb Raider poster in the background of Franklin's apartment, featuring Angelina Jolie (plus one hell of a padded bra) from before she forgot how to eat. The games on his screens are World of Warcraft (which I don't play and never have) and EVE Online (which I am currently addicted to).
EDIT: Life is strange. In the forum, gproject posted a link to this article about Chinese workers making a (not terribly lucrative) living off of gold farming in WoW, over at the Guardian's site. Coincidentally enough, it was posted today.
Apparently, the interviews in the article were facilitated by a documentary filmmaker working on a film about the Chinese gold farms called Play Money. That should be an interesting one.…
A statistic from Advanced Economic Research Systems (found at the Play Money site; also cited in a GameSpot article) stated that in January and February of 2005, "top sellers made more than $44,000 USD each month" from gold farming. Jeez, and I thought I was being unrealistic.

A short experimental film I made for schoolz. (Mostly) shot in 240 fps slow motion on an iPhone 6. Edited with Final Cut Pro. There are a few shots I’d have liked to redo if I wasn’t under the gun for a deadline (and hadn’t run out of tea), but… oh well.
