"Four11: Who or what has really been your biggest drive in seeing the completion of this piece? I know it must take a lot of work, so there must be some support group.
IC: There have been so many people who have supported me so far, I can’t name one person or group of people as my primary support group, but my parents have certainly been a huge help as well as my project advisor, Robin Lynch. My friends at Purchase and in the fighting game community have always been there whenever I need help or had problems. So everyone has really been incredibly supportive of the project right from the get go. (Interview excerpt from thefour11.org)"
A California gallery will be showing a refined and longer version of this piece in a few weeks. He has been asked to be a panelist in an upcoming gaming convention. He has been invited to film at various international gaming conventions.
