Daniel Floyd, a
professor student at Savannah College of Art and Design (2nd year, MFA Animation), has made a superb little flash movie on the theme of sex in videogames:
He doesn’t make any stunning revelations, but does sum up the subject efficiently and coherently, and reiterates the key point that if games are to explore sex in an effective way, they need to learn to also portray relationships and intimacy.
... says John. It's indeed a very potted history of sex in games,
released for the author's Media Theory course. It's and actually one of those opening-a-can moments, where you realise there's way more to dig into than can be covered by a 5 minute video, which would be, of course, the point of the thing.
Sex is one of the themes we're to tackle at C4 Ed, so I'm finding this a bit inspiring too.
UPDATE: Daniel's wife, Carrie, wrote in to point out that the rumour going round that Daniel is a professor and this is his course material is entirely fabricated and that Daniel is in fact a 2nd year animation student, and this is his course submission. Which explains the high quality of the animation, too! (Thanks Carrie)
