I've been casually following Jessica Stover (http://www.jessicastover.com/)
the person behind Artemis Eternal (http://www.artemiseternal.com/)
, for a
couple of years. From what I can tell, she's known what she's wanted to do
from a young age and moved to LA to pursue those dreams. Finding that the
traditional model of movie making and selling all artistic rights to a
corporation did not suit her vision for what she wanted to make, she set out
on her own.
I find that Jessica's smart and fairly savvy in the burgeoning new media
landscape. It's not necessarily where her passions lie but she has been
using it to cultivate a growing group of fans that support her work.
I really dig the Artemis Eternal site. I'm not a big fan of Flash-only
sites, but it's really well done. I dropped a few bucks in the paypal
bucket to support the realization of Jessica's vision and plan to donate
more in the future.
