The Game Jammer's Jam


Episode 1: Escape Route (The Pilot)

EP1 is all about the love for space-based science fiction and the fundamental need to escape a fallen world steeped in the mess of its own mistakes. 

It’s also about old stuff. The music is from the earliest game jams (Magic on the Dance Floor from the second ever). The visuals incorporate techniques from the old DJ days (you know them as “the 90s”) up to the earliest attempts at scene building in blender. In a way, EP1 is about saying goodbye to the old ways and eagerly embracing the new journeys of life.

Welcome to the Game Jammer’s Jam

The GJJ is an audio / visual escapist fantasy from producer Will Leamon and Thrillahill Productions. It hopes to provide a relaxed yet engaging experience to help you escape from, or come down off, the excitements and anxieties that plague the day 
 
The Music
The Jam’s music comes from mashing up the music from almost two dozen game jams over the past three years. The goal is to give these musical stems a second life mixed together and then ultimately become an entirely unique piece music. 
 
The Visuals
The Jam is based in video game music. Video game  music comes from the visual and story elements of the game. So the Jam really demands a visual component. Fortunately developing new techniques in Blender and After Effects produces many a “homeless” video that can be given more life here.  
 
The Producer
Everything about the GJJ comes from a guy who likes animals alot but especially his and everyone else’s cats. He cooks, bakes and knows his way around an espresso machine. He’s also been producing art in one form or another for more than 25 years and is also known as £400 Hacker - but mostly to some high school kids in Indiana.
