Research Bank

Hi all, I thought it would be nice to have a thread where we could list our areas of expertise or specialist knowledge. Perhaps you work in an interesting industry, or maybe you are at school and study a cool topic, or maybe you have a degree in something super-interesting or unique? Hey, it could even just be a fun hobby that you are really into!

I think it could make for a useful resource for anybody looking to oh I dunno, do research for a story, or just an opportunity to learn something new by then starting a PM conversation with another member :blush:

So hey yo, whadda ya know? :grin:

I guess I’ll start.

I have a degree in Screenwriting, which might be the stupidest thing to have a degree in because it does me absolutely no good :joy:

But I do know a thing or two about story writing, if I do say so myself :grin:

Add to that a passion for filmmaking. I’ve a little bit of experience in this, having worked on a couple of indie productions here in the UK.

Theatre Arts would like to have a word with you

I have been told by multiple teachers I am apparently “amazing at writing opinion essays”. Sure

I do have an eidetic memory, which I think is much more interesting.

Well, since you mentioned story writing, I have written a few short stories myself. I may post them here one day, however quite a few need to be…translated

Sounds ominous. What are they in, Sanskrit?

See, I think that’s interesting!

If I’d have had a cup of tea to my lips reading this, I’d have just broken my work laptop.

Haha! we can all dream aye!

What’s your next move then, always on the lookout for more productions to work on?

Gimme-gimme-gimme, my memory’s absolute bollocks

I’d absolutely love to, yes. Being on set is hard work but it’s also so much fun.

BSc Honours Degree in Games Development and Design. Made a few projects here and there. Come great in understanding game logic and working out how things work when playing a game. And finding the flaws and how to fix them.

Same here (main reason how I blitzed the HD collection so fast). As a kid before I had the internet, I would read where every collectable would be in a library and then go home and get them all. Comes in very handy with remastered games too, I don’t need a guide as I already know. However I have found out that I cannot control what I want to remember, only if I (as in my brain) think it would be of interest to me. Always a clause…

What would be your porn name?

Why are the words “regular” and “purgatory” coming into my mind . . . could it be the direction this thread is going?! @JaM_47 - j’accuse!

Materials research scientist, degree in chemistry, PhD in surface physics. Basically a chemist that can speak some physics, more than enough to annoy the physicists and be useful in my role.

I sure hope not. This thread could be a goldmine for research…
