"Any story can be a good story no matter who wrote it or what's in it" -Greg Stewart
I've been writing for as long as I can remember. One of my favorite activities in school was Creative Writing, being able to create my own characters and settings. I did not stop there, however. I would rush home from school, pick up a pencil and paper, and write scenarios for my characters. I would imagine what my stories would look like if they were actual shows on television and act out their voices. My imagination ran wild! Not much has changed!
My admiration for writing came from my love of comic books, anime, and video games. What became something I did as a hobby became my passion. Writing has always been a part of my life and to make a career in Writing is a literal dream come true.
Video Games, like many people, have been a huge part of my life. From PS1 to Game Boy Color, I can't remember a day where I didn't think about or play a video game. When I was 4 years old, I always wondered how games were made. I would ask myself "How did they do this?" and "Can someone like me make one?". These questions spun around in my head for years. As I got older, I researched how to exactly make a video game and thus, my journey into Game Development began.
I discovered programs like RPG Maker and Game Maker, teaching myself how to operate these programs with no help. The more I practiced, the better I got at. Being a black man designing video games is a foreign concept. There are not many black men or women in the industry and I want to change that. I started G Storm because I want to change the industry and be a prominent, black Game Developer that inspires more people of color to get involved in this amazing industry.
I love movies! I mean...who doesn't? Learning about filmmaking has always been fascinating to me. I would make YouTube channels just to test out how much I knew about filming. Today, I have an official YouTube channel where all things G Storm is posted!
When I was in college, I studied the many techniques filmmakers would use to get the results they wanted and was impressed with the creativity and cleverness of the craft. I once worked with a group of classmates to film a Aesop Fables story where I was the main character and narrator. Since that project, I have taken more interest in the art of filmmaking.
Being a Writer and Content Creator, I also took an interest in Scriptwriting, where I learned how to write a short script with nothing but my imagination. It was quite the experience since I am so used to writing in a novel format. With G Storm, I plan to write more scripts for both short and feature-length films based on the content my company produces. Whether it is animated or live-action, G Storm aims to produce films of all sorts for many to enjoy!
