Storytelling derails Process Discovery
You memories are not perfect, but the interpreter can help to fill in details which are plausible. Evidence of this is seen from how people who have suffered trauma that eliminates some of their real memories, will confabulate things to fill in the gaps, in a way to make a consistent narrative. We do this all the time, and if you memories are complete enough, and your understanding of the context good enough, this confabulation works in your favor.

Well finally the first episode of Bonny & Clyde is out. Please take a look and send me some feedback. We value your input.
For about the last 18 months or so, I’ve been working on and off on (sic) a new video series called Bonny & Clyde. While other projects came and went, many actually paying the rent, Bonny & Clyde just sat there, slowly ticking away in the background. Until now.
We’ve finally locked in a release date of 14th May 2007, which coincidentally is either Mothers’ Day or the 52nd anniversary of the signing of the Warsaw Pact, depending on which way you’re inclined.
Bonny & Clyde is a weekly improvised serial, so up to 4-5 minutes per episode per week, with each being mostly improvised by the characters. You can find more detail on the Bonny & Clyde Production Journal.
If you enjoyed our Frank & Dale, I’m pretty sure you’ll also enjoy Bonny & Clyde.
Being bored with having way too much work to do on various projects, a few weeks back I stupidly wrote, on a whim, 3 episodes of a mythical WWII comedy series. I think I was in a sketch writing mood, because I’d been lamenting that we’d started doing our A Walk in the Black Forest radio show again, but we hadn’t written any sketches yet. We used to be fairly prolific about 10 years ago.
Coincidentally, that same day, I saw a demo of a new came called Company of Heroes, which is awesome by the way, but which is also strangely enough set in WWII, and has some interesting machinima capabilities.
So here it is, a sneak peak at Frank and Dale, a new machinima series. Let me know what you think.
